1. Roots Crossbody Bag
A bag is always a good idea. It seems no matter how many bags a woman has, there’s always room for one more. This stylish Roots East West mini bag is perfect for those days Mom wants to carry light. Crossbody designs, of course keep the bag close, but allow you to be hands free. The good number of pockets in this bag can also help keep essentials organized.
2. Fossil Bifold Wallet
Speaking of places to store money, a new wallet could come in handy. From perennial favourite brand Fossil, the Sydney collection bifold wallet has everything you need to keep your personal essentials secure, and it’s made of beautiful, durable leather plus it comes in neutrals like black or taupe. Tuck a penny inside when you gift it to bring mom good luck for the year.
3. Vacu Vin PopSome Herbs & Spices Dispensers with Tree
I look to cook, and I’m always looking for smarter re-organization in the kitchen. This herb organizer set would be a great way to keep herbs and spices fresh and handy. Since I leaned most of my cooking skills from my mom, I know she’d love this too. The flexible lids seal air-tight and pop out with a germ-resistant dispenser mouth that dumps the perfect portion without contaminating rest of the contents. Plus you can stack up to three dispenser trees together to create more storage.
4. Home Presence cheese accessory set
Since we’re on the subject of food, this is another gift that would go over like gangbusters in my family. The Home Presence cheese accessory set comes with four speciality cheese knives and four cheese markers, which are handy to label the brie so you don’t mix it up with the camembert. A black erasable marker is included for writing on the cheese labels.
Know what you’ll need for mom to go with that cheese? Some wine accessories, of course. These Luminarc Wine Glasses are the perfect companion. They’re available in traditional long-stemmed variety, or a stemless version. The subtle etching on the glasses is nice and differentiates each glass from the other, so there’s no mix-ups.
6. New Releases
If your mom rocks geek chic, she might appreciate getting some of the newest releases in movies, like Star Wars; The Force Awakens, The Revenant, or X-men. For TV shows there’s the box set of Game of Thrones, or Pretty Little Liars. Each one is well under the $50 limit we set for this article, and there’s plenty of options, topics and titles to pick from.
7. Bring some art into the home
Art can be hard to buy as a gift, but when a cute, vibrant and chic print is under $50, it’s a great deal. The Nexxt Shutter Floral Canvas is a quick and easy way to dress up a drab space, like the laundry room, bathroom, or even a blank wall elsewhere. The cute florals and greenery can also brighten up a basement space too.
8. Nexxt Round Mirror Set
If art feels too risky, why not bring light tiny the home another way. This fun mirror set from Nexxt comes with seven varying sized decorative mirrors and is perfect for a foyer, front hallway or bedroom. They can be laid out in any configuration you like, from a more formal symmetrical design to a more casual, free-form look.
9. Rockwater Nordic Walking Poles
For the mom who has everything, but loves the outdoors, these walking poles are a great idea, and probably something she wouldn’t get for herself. You and your mom can head for the trails and trek over any terrain with confidence and ease with these handy and lightweight aluminum stabilizing poles. This pair of aluminum walking sticks is ideal for walking, cross-country skiing, hiking, trail running, and other activities.
10. Heart Tea Cups
Finally, after a long day, why not give mom a subtle reminder you love her? These super cute tea cups (2 in a set) have a unique design that uses that neat double-wall construction so your beverage appears to be floating. It also creates a thermal effect to maintain the temperature of hot and cold drinks longer. Even better, is that when you look into it from above, your drink will form the shape of a heart.
As you can see, there’s a lot of options under $50, and they’re perfect for kids who may want to spend some allowance on mom; these won’t break the bank and the ideas cover all kinds of moms, and mother in laws.
