Inexpensive gift ideas for the house-proud mother

Those who have yet to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift should consider taking their search to the home section this year. From personalised mugs to full-room renovations, the list of possibilities is endless for those who would like to spoil their house-proud mom.
Providing some ideas of the sorts of household gifts one could purchase, RE/MAX of Southern Africa lists a few areas of the home that present the perfect opportunity for gifting:
Kitchen knick-knacks
The list of gifts within the kitchen space is endless, especially for those who are on a tight budget. Affordable kitchen knick-knacks, including items such as a kitchen drying up cloth, wine glass or mug, can be customised with your mother’s name or with a quote, phrase or inside joke that would resonate particularly well with your mother. Those who are unsure of their mother’s taste could invite their mother out shopping before the day arrives and watch them carefully as they browse through the aisles.
Bathroom bliss
For mothers who love a bit of pampering, the bathroom is full of gifting possibilities. Order a bath caddy where she can rest her book or wine glass. Bath bombs, bubble bath, and body scrubs would be the perfect complement for this gift. You could even get bath towels, or a bath robe embroidered with her name.
Blank walls
Framed photographs of memorable occasions can make for an excellent inexpensive gift. Before selecting the frame, scout your mother’s home to see what style of frame to purchase and to check if she will have a place to put it. Go the extra mile and offer to hang the picture yourself so that it doesn’t become your mother’s problem later.
Dated or problematic rooms
For those with DIY skills, offering to renovate or spruce up a space can be the perfect gift, especially for elderly mothers who would struggle to make the changes themselves. This can be as small as fixing a squeaky door hinge or as big as repainting a room. Those who can afford it could even offer to hire professionals to help upgrade the space.
No matter what gift you select, remember that quality time is probably all your mother wants this Mother’s Day. “There is no better way to celebrate the day than by enjoying quality time together,” says Regional Director and CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, Adrian Goslett. “We wish all mothers a very happy Mother’s Day and want to thank them for all the hard work they put in every day of the year to help raise their families,” Goslett concludes
