How to give Mom the best Mother’s Day without breaking the bank

Moms deserve it all, and Mother’s Day is a good reminder to treat your mom to a day of pamper and relaxation. There is a lot of hype around Mother’s Day gifting, and we’re often bombarded by gift ideas that are way above our budgets.

The truth is that there are plenty of ways to spoil your mom on Mother’s Day without overspending. Here are a few ideas that are sure to warm her heart:

A meal to remember

Going out is great, but if you’re on a budget, why not prepare Mom a delicious meal at home? Invite the family around, get out the good crockery, set the table, play her favourite music and prepare a homemade meal with love. The time spent around the table together is priceless and she’ll appreciate all the extra effort.

Home spa day

Why not treat Mom to a home mani and pedi? You don’t need all the fancy tricks of the trade – simply grab a body scrub, body butter, nail file and her favourite nail colours. Start by giving her hands or feet a good yet gentle scrub to remove dry skin cells. We recommend using Bramley Shea Butter Exfoliating Body Scrub, which gently removes dead cells from the skin’s top layer and contains nourishing shea butter, fatty acids and vitamins to nurture skin. 

Follow with a good hand/foot massage using a rich body butter like Bramley Magnolia Body Butter. Instantly hydrating, this thick formula is great for massaging and it leaves skin feeling soft and supple. Once the massage is done, file Mom’s nails into shape and apply two coats of her favourite nail colour.

Indulge in her favourite activities

You may not always share the same interests as her, but Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to join Mom in an activity she enjoys. Whether it’s a hike along her favourite trail, a baking session, a picnic at the park or a movie she’s been dying to see, plan a special activity that’s completely centred around her interests and share the enjoyment with her.

A thoughtful gift

Moms are known to put everyone else before themselves and seldom take the time to fully relax and practise some self-care. Why not treat her to some pampering beauty products that won’t just leave her skin looking and feeling fantastic, but that will also allow her to indulge in a little me-time? 

Bramley has a lovely selection of affordable, quality pamper products that will leave her skin glowing and her senses awakened. Its best-selling Magnolia range is a favourite among moms of all ages. We recommend gifting her with one of these hero products:

  • Bramley Magnolia Tissue Oil – One of Bramley’s star products, this versatile oil contains Bramley’s signature Bio-Pharm Oil and vitamin E to restore and lock in moisture, soften skin and even skin tone. It even helps fade scars and stretch marks. Mom can apply it directly onto her skin, mix it into her favourite lotion or even add a few drops to her bath water.
  • Bramley Magnolia Hand & Nail Cream – A luxurious hand cream is always a good idea. Rich in Bio-Pharm Oil and vitamin E, this formula is non-greasy and quickly absorbed. It nourishes, moisturises and conditions, leaving hands looking younger and smoother. It’s the perfect size to keep in Mom’s handbag, too.
  • Bramley Magnolia & Vanilla Body Wash – Elevate Mom’s daily shower or bath with this beautifully scented body wash. Infused with the beautiful scents of magnolia and vanilla, it gently cleanses skin without stripping it of its natural moisture.
  • Bramley Magnolia Body Lotion – This rich moisturising lotion is easily absorbed, leaving your skin feeling soft and velvety. Like the other items in this range, it also contains nourishing Bio-Pharm Oil and vitamin E, but offers a texture that’s lighter than that of the body butter.

Bramley prides itself on offering top quality, hard-working beauty products that are affordable, regardless of your budget. With a wide selection of gifts under R50, you’re guaranteed to find something Mom will love (and which is easy on your pocket). 

No matter what the occasion, it’s always the thought that counts, and there are so many ways to show Mom your love and appreciation without going into debt or spending more than you can afford. 

Remember to tell her how much she means to you and to treasure her every day of the year – not just on Mother’s Day.
