Treating your mum needn’t cost a lot this Mother's Day (Sun 11 Mar 2018). We’re sure she'd appreciate a simple gesture like breakfast in bed or a homemade cake. But if you're going to spend money, here are some cheap Mother's Day gift ideas. 

Even better, ditch presents completely and use our DIY Mother's Day Gift Cheques.

In-store & couriered flowers

You can get pretty bouquets for £5 or under in supermarkets, or couriered to your mum from £20. Remember though, things can go wrong with the delivery of flowers for Mother's Day, so consider the risk. Unfortunately we can't compare prices for all independent stores, so check the prices at local florists to ensure you're getting the best deal.

Restaurant deals

If your mum's usually top chef in your household, give her the night off and return the favour with a dine-in or takeaway deal – just make sure you do the washing up too! Or treat her to a meal out instead.

Champagne & prosecco deals

If your mum loves a bit of bubbly, here are the best deals we've found for champagne and prosecco.

Sainsbury's Prosecco Frizzante is £6 in store and online at Sainsbury's*. It has confirmed this is the standard price for this bottle.

If you shop online, delivery can cost between £1-£7, or you can collect from selected stores for free. There's a minimum spend of £25 online, so if you just want one bottle you might be better off getting this deal in a store.

Online & in stores

Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore is currently £7.99 a bottle in store (find your nearest) and online at Aldi.

We've seen a similar bottle for £11.90, so we reckon now's the time to buy in case the price goes up.

Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut is currently £10.99 a bottle in store and online at Aldi. If you're shopping online you'll need to buy a case of six bottles (you can mix and match different bottles), so if you just want one, you'd be better off visiting a store (find your nearest).

We've seen this bottle go down to £9.99 before, we'll update you here if it goes back down.

Free Mother's Day gift cheques

Thoughtfulness melts the heart far more than a pricey gift. Our free Mother's Day gift cheques let you create unique vouchers for your mum. You could offer to do the washing up for a week, cook her dinner, bake a cake, or even take her out for the day.


Don't feel pressured to buy pricey presents for your mum, but if you're feeling flush (in the MoneySaving sense), then a small gift could be a nice surprise. And buying something at a discount will please your mum more than seeing you waste your hard-earned cash.

Lidl logo£3.99 Suddenly Madame Glamour perfumeTop Chanel smell-alike. 50ml bottle, at Lidl


If you're looking for a Chanel smell-alike, Suddenly Madame Glamour perfume is £3.99 for a 50ml bottle in Lidl stores nationwide (find your nearest). 

Forumites swear it smells just like Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, which is normally £61ish for 50ml. We've also done some in-house testing at MSE Towers, and it scored highly against the more expensive brand. 

Obviously we can't guarantee you'll scents the similarity, but it's worth a nosey.  

See the Cheap smell-alikes forum post to see what forumites think.

Lancome logo£85 of Lancôme make-up for £27ish*Online at Debenhams. Incl lipstick, mascara, face cream


If you go online to Debenhams*, you can get a free gift set containing mascara, base mascara, lipstick, face cream and eye cream, subject to stock. Delivery's £3.49 or you can click and collect for free.

To get the offer, add two Lancôme products to your bag – The cheapest product we found was the ‘Monsieur Big’ brow highlighter* on offer for £13.60 (norm £16), so the minimum spend to get the ‘freebie’ is £27.20. The ‘free’ gift set will be added to your order automatically. Of course, if you normally buy Lancôme it's worth stocking up on what you normally buy to get the freebie as a bonus.

The ‘free’ set, which we’ve valued at £57.33 based on the full-size equivalents, includes:

  • L'Absolu Sheer 202 lipstick, 1.65ml - worth £10 based on full-sized 4.2ml version at Boots.
  • Monsieur Big mascara, 1.5ml - worth £3.94 based on full-sized 8ml version at John Lewis.
  • Cils Booster mascara, 5.5ml - normally £23.50 at Feel Unique.
  • Hydra Zen day cream, 15ml - worth £8.89 based on full-sized 50ml version at John Lewis.
  • Hydra Zen eye cream, 5ml - worth £11 based on full-sized 15ml version at John Lewis.

The offer began on Mon 29 Jan and there’s no set end date – just while stock lasts. You can only get one ‘free’ gift set per person and the offer isn’t valid with other discounts.

Big thanks to forumite Sarah1972 for the original spot, see her post on the MSE Forum.
