Mothers Day is right around the corner, and being the list maker that I am I figured it might be helpful to round up ten items under $10 that are tested and approved by yours truly that will definitely spark joy for many other moms out there! Giving you the ease of using Amazon for all your last minute holiday needs, hopefully the list inspires you to treat your mom to something special, even if it’s a late morning wake up and snuggles in bed (hint hint let me sleep in past 8).

1. Good Days Start With Gratitude: A 52 Week Guide To Cultivate An Attitude Of Gratitude: Gratitude Journal
This was a journal I received for Christmas from my amazing triplet sister and it has gotten me through some really low days just by taking the time to think of three things I’m grateful for. I mentioned hunting the good stuff way back in my first article on self care, and this is a cute and convenient way to keep track.
I actually bought this for myself because I needed a new water bottle, but wanted one that was both large and adorable and I have yet to be disappointed! 32 ounces of glittery pink water carrying power, I love that drinking two of these a day easily hits my water goal, and it’s reusable which is always a plus.
These were the bracelets I gave my bridesmaids and maid of honor for being an essential part of our big day! I loved how simple they were, but how they made such a big statement. I definitely regret not getting myself one, but to be honest I probably would have lost it by now. The idea of a super simple and symbolic piece of jewelry is always a great option if you have a stylish mom figure in your life!
For the bookish leading Mom or Grandma in your life this story book locket it perfect! It’s a perfect accessory for those who love everything to do with literature, and also you can carry a teeny tiny photo of your babies (fur or human, whatever makes you happy) with you where ever you go.
Staying on theme with the literary themed Mother’s Day, I adore Jane Austen, as do many of the leading ladies in my life, and this book would definitely be a welcome edition to any home library. A short and quick book of all things quirky and inspiring in the world of Jane Austen, you can’t really go wrong with a good book.
I use this stuff on the daily, and for the past four years we’ve given the Jergens lotion to my husbands mom as a customary token of motherly appreciation. If there is anything that goes on the back burner for moms I’ll be the first to tell you its skin care, do her a solid and hook her up with some lotion speaking from experience here, she probably didn’t remember to pick any up at the store and her skin is screaming for some TLC.
Adding on to the list of things I never remember to pick up at the store, I once had this exact sugar scrub and never remembered where I found it, until I went through my Amazon history and viola! This stuff did wonders for my skin and I loved how I felt after using it! Again your mom probably doesn’t have room to remember all the awesome skin care and beauty products she used before you came into the world, so do her a favor and surprise her with something she can treat herself with even if its only for the four minutes of uninterrupted peace that is shower or bath time.
I adore Burt’s Bee’s products but can never justify spending that much on myself and I’m sure most moms can get behind me on that one. I feel like a broken record here but if there is one thing moms can agree on, that we usually take the backseat when it comes to splurging on nice things for ourselves. This nifty little travel set is six pieces of organic goodness, all travel size which is perfect for a mom on the go who can easily throw her beloved goods into a makeup bag or spare diaper bag pocket to use on the fly. You don’t have to be a mom to agree a six piece travel set of hygiene goods is an all around good idea for any gift giving occasion.
My Mom actually gave me a busy year planner last year and it was a life saver! At the time I was working multiple jobs and balancing a bunch of other things, so it made planning and seeing who needed to be where a breeze! It even had fun stickers to mark off activities like library trips and sporting events for moms that have multiple kiddos in multiple activities. I would recommend getting any mom a planner because the universe only knows just how busy life can get.
I have yet to meet a mom who doesn’t thrive off of copious amounts of caffeine, and as I’m writing this I’m currently sipping on my very limited due to pregnancy one cup of coffee a day, and nothing really gets me moving more than coffee. I also know 9 out of 10 moms would agree they don’t ever finish their cup of coffee, and a travel mug is a must if they want to continue to sip on their now cold coffee through out their day. This mug is adorable, says “World’s Greatest Mom”, and unlike most Mother’s day things is a gorgeous blue swirl design! I like that is has a handle and is different than the pink and flowery world of moms day gifts. For all the non-pink loving moms, this is an adorable way to thank her for drinking her coffee cold most of the time.
The Take Away
At the end of the day Mother’s Day is more than just a greeting card and travel mug, it’s about letting the Mom figures in your life know just how much you appreciate them taking the time and energy to make sure you survive and thrive in this crazy world. So give mom a call, drop off a ton of hugs, and be sure to remember that no matter what, the best gift you can give is one from the heart.
