8. Bulova Women’s ‘Caravelle’ Diamond Accented Watch
A nice, dressy watch is always a great gift.
This watch, today, is $59.00 at Overstock.com. If you go on their website, you will see many, many watches at higher and lower prices and every possible style. One of my favorite sites.
9. Gift Cards
When in doubt or out of time, get the famous gift card. Either find one for your mom’s favorite store, or go generic with American Express or Visa.
Wrap it in one of those really cute little envelopes they have just for gift cards and you’re ready to go.
A Magazine Subscription
On Mother’s Day, wrap up this month’s magazine that you’ve chosen to get a subscription to.
Let her know you’ve gotten her a subscription for a year (or however long).
This is a frugal, yet really thoughtful gift.
Go to magazines.com to make your choice.
