Mother's Day Gift Guide

May 11, 2018

Make May 13 a memorable Mother’s Day with a gift basket guide from Dollar General that makes celebrating the leading ladies in your life this year easy. From gardening to movie night, find thoughtful and budget-friendly gifts that will please any mom.

Spa Day In:
Pamper the lady of honor by giving a variety of beauty items that includes hair care, skin care and cosmetics. If looking to go with a spa-day theme, try gifting her with bubble bath body wash and a facial scrub. Add luxurious facial and body lotions, colorful nail polish and soft bath towels to complete the gift.

Home décor:
Picture frames can be an affordable option to give this Mother’s Day. Fill the frames with family photos for a special and personalized gift. Curtains, rugs and lamps can also make for fun decorative gifts. Whether for home décor or to encourage a relaxing spa-day at home, candles can be considered a classic Mother’s Day gift. This lavender and chamomile candle is specially formulated with essential oils and is the perfect candle to make them feel soothed and relaxed.

For the ladies who love to garden, surprise her with a few practical items that will help her dig into spring! Swap out a gift basket for a planter and add items like seed packets, garden gloves, watering cans, hose nozzles and other tools. The planter can later be used to plant the seeds and let colorful flowers bloom! Consider adding decorative garden pieces to help liven up the garden area. Mini garden décor can easily be added to the planter and is a great way to get creative outdoors!

Movie Night:
Celebrate with a movie night basket that features her favorite movies! Stock the basket with popcorn, soda and her favorite candies. Add DVDs or a gift card to purchase or rent a movie. Have fun with the theme by adding reusable popcorn boxes.

Dollar General also offers greeting cards starting at $0.50 to round out the gift basket and share a special message of appreciation to those we call Mom. Save on gifts and gift packaging essentials like gift wrap, bags, tissue paper and more by heading to your local Dollar General or online.
