What can I do for Mother's Day with no money?

Your mum really just wants a hug and a thoughtful gesture from you that shows her she’s appreciated.


A bunch of flowers to brighten her day is always a welcome surprise. A Mother’s Day bouquet can be as simple as a colourful bunch of flowers from the garden. Sweet little surprises go a long way to warming a mother’s heart. If you’re having Mother’s Day at home, write her little thank you notes or love messages to mum on sticky post-it notes and hide them around her house for her to discover. Stick individual chocolates or little gifts for mum on some of the notes as an extra cute surprise.


For an inexpensive gift idea, find an old photograph of you and your mum from years ago that is close to your heart. Have the photo re-printed, and buy a new photo frame. Write a message in gold sharpie pen on the frame with a big love heart, and give it as a meaningful gift for mum to remind her what an important role model she has always been for you.
