By

Yes, your mom deserves the world and everything she wants. Failing that, she deserves a thoughtful gift at a reasonable price, because she just wants her kids to be fiscally responsible, even when showering her with presents. If you’re looking to be indulgent without spending too much, we’ve rounded up 24 options under $80 dollars that you and your mom will love.

For the Mom Who Wants to Be Jazzy

Acrylic Striped Clutch
$30, Amazon

This bright mod clutch will add some fun color to her wardrobe.

For the Eco-Conscious Mom

Anna Glover X H&M Patterned Lyocell Blouse
$35, H&M

You can never have too many pretty blouses, and this one is made out of sustainable fabric.

For the Mom Who’s Always Chilly

Kennebunk Home Plush Throw
$40, Nordstrom

Not only is it remarkably cozy, but if she throws it over a chair or a plush bed, it’ll give her home that decor catalogue vibe.

For the Mom Who Likes Accessories

Amazon Diamond Locket Necklace
$50, Amazon

Just because you can’t afford to get her a fancy diamond necklace doesn’t mean you can’t get her something nice. This gold oval pendant has a tiny diamond in the center, holds two photos, and still costs under $75.

For the No-Makeup Makeup Mom

Kjaer Weis The Lip Balm
$50, Revolve

Elevate the drugstore lip balm buried at the bottom of your mom’s handbag with a fancy petroleum-free formula. And make sure she keeps the case when she’s done — it’s refillable.

For the ‘Bag Lady’ Mom

Tapp Collections Top Purse Hanger
$10, Amazon

Like the saying goes, “A purse on the floor is money out the door.”

For the Mom Who’s Going on Vacation

Sam Edelman Sandals

Having looks for vacation is almost as much as fun as going on vacation itself. She’ll be ready for the photos in these cute woven sandals.

For the Mom Who Likes Facials

May Lindstrom The Facial Treatment Bowl
$40, CAP Beauty

Don’t force mom to mix her mud mask in a kitchen bowl. Get her one specifically meant for skin care and decorated in 24k gold.

For the Mom Who Loves Greenery

Calamondin Fruit
$60, Via Citrus

There are plenty of plants you can buy her, but does she have a Calamondin? Probably not. It’s a hybrid fruit — half mandarin, half kumquat — that’s great for baked goods, jams, and cocktails.

For the Mom Who Loves Fancy Cookware

Thirteen Chefs Tramanto Olive Wood Cooking Utensil Set

For the Cat-Eye Mom

Marc Jacobs The Blacquer Eye Set

For the Mom Who Always Has Nice Nails

Christian Louboutin Loubitag Nail Collection

For the Mom Who Loves to Throw Shade

Topshop Straw Hat

For the Tea-Obsessed Mom

Broste Copenhagen Esrum Teapot

For the Mom on-the-Go

LuMee Power Charger
