Your Mum will be the first to tell you that giving a gift is not about the money that you spend on it … (are you ready to join in the chorus?) … “It’s the thought that counts”!! Your Mom knows how hard you work for your cash, and while she loves to know you’re thinking of her, she doesn’t need anything expensive. While you may have moved a little past A3 paintings and macaroni necklaces, Mother’s Day still doesn’t have to cost the Earth. We’re here to show you the most inexpensive gifts that will make stunning gifts for Mother’s Day .
Inexpensive Mother’s Day gifts are actually extremely easy to find on site – just click through to the Mother’s Day gift ideas section, and use the slider in the price tab of the product refinement box to set your budget for this Mother’s Day.
There are several products in the range from AU$25 to AU$50, including the Pandora brand earrings pictured at the beginning of the article. The garnets are a gorgeous deep red colour, classy and mature, and the gemstone takes up a generous portion of the earring. As with most Pandora jewelry items, these earrings have matching bracelet charms and other items – just check the ‘We Also Recommend’ section at the bottom of the product description to see all of them.
If your Mum is like many women nowadays, she enjoys the flexibility and creativity that having more than one set of ear piercings affords – and we love the great value silver and gold Pandora earrings as a match for the garnet flowers. Together they create quite a layered effect, that actually makes each pair much more versatile than they would be alone! The silver is oxidized sterling silver, and the gold sections are 14ct – and don’t forget that Pandora products not only ship for free across Australia, but cancel the shipping charge for anything else you purchase at the same time! When is her birthday?
If your Mum is anything like mine, age has not subdued her dress sense at all … if anything she wears crazier colours and experiments with even more unique combinations than she did as a teenager!
For those Mums who are artistic and creative with their appearance, the golden black butterfly pendant at right is perfect. The front has a natural autumn butterfly colour, and the back is a beautiful bright blue. The butterfly colour is set on sterling silver, and the chain is looped delicately around the antennae. And as with all of the products in this post, it is substantially less than AU$100!
Okay, so now that I’ve said that I’m going to have to renege … but only a little bit!
The Fossil ladies silver tone watch pictured at right is just a smidgin over AU$100, but as a designer, fashion item, represents great value. The sleek verticals of the band make any hand look slender and sweet – the watch itself is made from stainless steel, water resistant to 50m and comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.
When it comes to you, your Mum probably already wears her heart on her sleeve … now you can help her do it literally with the Lovelocked diamond bracelet by Hot Diamonds pictured at right. The bracelet measures 19cm but fits a little more snugly – it is made of rhodium plated sterling silver, and features a brilliant cut genuine white diamond.
And one excellent way to give the gift of choice to your Mum is to start a Pandora bracelet for her, which can be done for under a hundred dollars!
Then after this, you have ready made gift ideas for Christmases, birthdays, and any other occasions – awesome! Pandora has a unique style that suits every different woman – a mix of vintage charm, traditionalism and unique and individual materials. Chip in with your brother or sister and you’ll be able to get her a gorgeous starter bead like the violet and purple triangles Murano glass charm at right.
For Mums who are into more traditional types and styles of jewellery, the pendant area offers plenty of inexpensive options.
Currently (and this does vary slightly), there are just over 80 pendant products that you can get for no more than $75 … bargain! That’s not counting necklaces, either. The heart amethyst one at right is a lovely all-round choice. If your Mom is usually quite restrained in her dress choice, she’ll appreciate the opportunity to incorporate a little colour without it overwhelming her. The amethyst is a 5mm stone of .48ct, and the gold base is 9ct.
And if you are looking for an inexpensive Mother’s Day gift, it is impossible to go past the earrings section, where just over half of the entire range is available for less than AU$100 – currently there are just over 440 products in total.
We love both the black onyx multifaceted earrings at right, with their classy cocktail style, and the Pandora neater, shorter onyx and pearl ones below them. The drop style earrings are 6cm long, while the Pandora ones are for women who like to feel unfettered (but still beautiful), at around 2.5cm. Onyx is a gem making a big comeback, with its dramatic versatility – make your Mum part of it!
