Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Teens

Most teens don't have a lot of income, so these gifts are special but not too hard on the wallet.

Mother’s day is soon approaching and children of all ages are frantically thinking of gift ideas for their mothers. However, several find that some gifts are too expensive to buy or not meaningful enough for their moms.

1. Personalized Mug

Personalized mugs are a great idea for gifts. They’re easy to find and aren’t overly expensive during this time of year. They also make a good way for your mom to think of you every time she reaches to grab her cup of coffee. Extra points for a funny and relatable joke!

2. Letter Box

This gift is a little more time consuming, but worth it in every way. Each letter inside the box has specific instructions for when your mom should read it, such as “If you miss me” or “If you’re feeling sad.” Amount of letter may vary on how much time or patience you have with letter writing.

3. Fake Flowers

Materials: construction paper, a vase and some love. Making paper flowers for your mom can be lots of fun, and they make for an everlasting decoration as well for her to admire on the dinner table. If you haven’t tried this gift, it’s definitely a good idea!

4. Care Basket

How about a basket of everything to make your mom well rested? Grab a basket and get shopping. Snacks, towels, blankets, and pillows are all acceptable. Change it up a bit based on your mom’s individual preference such as her favorite color or brand of snacks.

5. Mom coupons

Has your mom ever wanted you to do something for her which you without a doubt refused to do? Well now’s the perfect time to make up for that. Make a book or poster of coupons she can use and which you promise to do. Be careful to make sure you can agree to everything you write: a promise is a promise.
