Just (the Best) Sales & Mother’s Day Gifts Under $25

Good morning friends!  I noticed an immediate sense of hopefulness when we learned that Houston will slowly start reopening our city on May 1.  There will be lots of rules and restrictions, and places like gyms and hair salons will remain closed for longer, but it’s a start.   We (anyone age 10 and up) are supposed to be wearing masks when out in public throughout the month of May.

This hasn’t really changed my plans and we’re still hanging at home, but I am optimistic and happy about people being able to go back to work.  This quarantine and virus has taken a toll on so many areas of our lives.  It will be good to be able to feel a little more ‘normal’ again.

Homeschool has been taking lots more energy than I originally thought, but we only have a month to go!  I like the structure it gives to our day, but it’s super challenging.  And when did fourth grade math morph into something I cannot help with??  We always carried the one.

But I must say, our kids are true little heroes though all of this. They’ve had their lives and routines totally disrupted – no sports or school or friends coming over. It’s got to be hard for them too.  Jordan keeps asking for some of her classmates to come over and is so sad that she can’t play on the playground at the park.

How are y’all holding up?

It doesn’t take a ton of money to show mom you care!  But, we do enjoy unwrapping a little something on Mother’s Day!  I rounded up several thoughtful gifts that are all under $25!  I already have several of these and can personally vouch for them!


Billie Razor $9 – The best razor, honestly! She will not be disappointed with this find and it comes in so many color options. My favorite part is the close shave, easy to hold handle, and magnetic holder for the shower wall. Not to mention you don’t have to think about buying new razors as they come in the mail based on how often you shave.
Drop Earrings $14 (reg. $35) – These drop earring are the perfect addition for any outfit. Come in two color options, a soft pink or neutral white. 
Rose Gold Flip Flops $9 (reg. $26) – Havianas are a Must Have for Summer.  These feature the updated slim strap and a cushy footbed.  I live in mine in the warmer months.
Anthropologie Volcano Candle $16 – You know I love a good candle! I light them every evening and sometimes even early mornings before the kids get up. This one comes in the prettiest jar and has a fresh, spring-ready scent.
Scoop Neck Tee $15 (reg. $25) – I liked this silky soft tee so much I bought it in multiple colors.  It’s so soft, she’ll love it! 
Summer Scarf $15 (reg. $39) – It seems like moms always appreciate a good scarf and this one makes a perfect gift.  It’s a luxurious modal-and-silk blend and lightweight enough for Spring and Summer.  The wispy fringe trim is so pretty. 
Monogram Agate Coaster $16 – Who doesn’t love a monogram?!  It just makes everything more special!  This sliced agate  coaster adds so much style to any table in your home.
 Mini Radiant Cleansing Balm $24 – You cannot go wrong gifting Colleen Rothschild to Mom.  But, this mini facial cleanser is under $25!  In fact, everything is 15% off with code MOM15. See more of my skincare essentials here.
 Makeup Case $10 (reg. $19) – This sweet makeup case is the prettiest addition to her beauty routine.

Have a fantastic day friends!

  1. I literally laughed out loud about carrying the one. My girls are in 10th and 6th grade but I always told their elementary school teachers that in our house we carried the one. My follow up to that statement was they need basic math since they are not going to make a diagram of circles or draw a house to count their change at the grocery store!
