Mother’s Day is such a special day out of the year and probably one of the most over-looked. After all, none of us would be here if it wasn’t for mothers. When I was younger I faced two big struggles when trying to think of a gift idea for my mom. Number one, she already had everything! It seemed anything she ever wanted she just bought. Number two, I always felt like I had no money. Sometimes this was probably true, other times I know it was just because I wasn’t budgeting money wisely. Now as a mother myself one of the biggest stressors I put on my family is the fact that I am a minimalist mom. My entire life centers around avoiding clutter. So what do you buy a mom who doesn’t want stuff? Whatever the case and whatever your financial situation this Mother’s Day I have got the ultimate Mother’s Day gift list for you. Whether you have a mom who has everything, a limited budget or a mom who doesn’t want anything. So here’s my ultimate list of minimalist Mother’s Day gifts to avoid clutter and not break the bank!

One of the best ways to avoid getting mom a gift that will add to clutter is by getting her out of the house! There are so many great options when it comes to finding ways to treat your mom. Whether it’s a day by herself or a day with her favorite person (you, obviously.)

Don’t worry, if you have a clutter free minimalist mom, you still have plenty of low-clutter options.
If you really are just strapped for cash or can’t think of anything for your mom consider giving her a little bit of your God given talents. Maybe they are even something you’ve inherited from her, like your singing voice or artistic ability.
You can never go wrong when you go sentimental. Taking piece of your lives and putting them together for her to cherish is something most moms crave. It will take more of your time and effort but is usually highly affordable and has a huge pay off.
No matter your budget, talents or time make sure you stop to think of your mom this Mother’s Day and come up with something that will make her smile. After all, she has done a lot for you over the years. Make sure she knows she’s appreciated. I know too many friends who didn’t make it out of high school with a mom by their side. If you still have yours, consider yourself lucky and take every chance you can to appreciate her. She won’t always be around. So make sure she feels special this Mother’s Day.
