25+ More FREE Or Low Cost Mother’s Day Ideas

With yesterday’s post (30 FREE Or Low Cost Mother’s Day Gift Ideas) leads to today’s post, 25 More FREE Or Low Cost Mother’s Day Ideas. So lets begin…

25 More FREE Or Low Cost Mother’s Day Ideas

1. A Cake-

A holiday is always special with a cake, this cake was nominated as one of the best Mother’s Day cakes. A beautiful two-tiered white chocolate buttercream covered cake. Yummy! And you can find the recipe HERE. But remember, any cake would be a beautiful gift to top Mother’s Day!

2. Cupcakes-

Have a few Mother’s Day deliveries? How about a batch of cupcakes? Cupcakes are a great way to send a little bit of love a few different directions with the same amount of cake batter. An extra sweet treat just the right size! And why not make them cute too? I love flower cupcakes. Here are a few ideas from Wilton too!

3. An Up-cycled Dish-

Have a dollar store, vintage or local thrift store near? How about a cute new dish with your mother’s favorite treats. Sometimes the most simplest gifts from the heart are the most meaningful. A great addition for your baked treats or candies for mom. These also make a great mini bundt display for the next free or low cost gift item.


4. Mini Cakes or Personal Bundts-

So many options when it comes to mini cakes. This mini bundt cake @TheMondayBox is a great one! Or the center cakes (Blueberry Almond @yourcupofcake) can be found at the Your Cup of Cake website. OR the mini cakes, also known as Korean Bento Cakes, a great hit for a slice of goodness! If you have a few bakers in your midst, it is not hard to whip out 24-36 of these in an evening! So another great idea for a small church crow or larger family celebrating with several mothers! Check out these pans online I purchased a few years ago for events, they work great! (I went with the springform after the mini bundt because they are easier to clean, especially when you are washing 12 at a time!)

5. Spa In a Jar-

This super cute idea came from Danetta over Find here tutorial AND free jar printable over there. I love how customizable this is and how easy it would be to upcycle or reuse jars to reduce the cost, allowing this to also be a congregation gift or Mother’s Day addition for the ladies of your church.

26. Noodle Beads & Jewelry-

Since we noted a few kids crafts, handmade jewelry is beautiful and sweet from the little ones. Although beads are reasonable where we are located, they are not available or inexpensive everywhere! So, here is a thrifty, but cute version too. Either way, hand made jewelry is a win for Mother’s Day! Tutorial @ Lisa Burke

27. Tote Bag-

Now this is the inexpensive version, but you can get as creative and as luxurious as you would like with this item.
