Your mom is obviously worth a million bucks — but we’re going to assume that’s nowhere near the budget you’re working with this Mother’s Day. (Unless your name is North West, in which case, please make your way over to the luxury gift guide and spend with abandon.) Still, even if you only have $20 — or, heck, $10 — you can treat her on May 12, and not in an “it’s the thought that counts” way, either. Pair that sentiment with a small token of love and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a happy giftee.
Ahead, we rounded up 16 little treasures that ring in at under $20 and are sure to make her smile. And if you’re on the hunt for something specific, give us a shot in the comments. You’ve still got time and we are here to help with all your shopping pursuits.
These soaps look and smell like something you’d find in a cool French pharmacy, but — surprise! — you get them at Walmart. We’re not saying they’re going to transport mom to the Provence countryside, but they’ll definitely elevate her bathroom counter game.
