Our mothers have always been there for us, putting our health and happiness and well-being ahead of everything else, including their own. This has perhaps never been more true than the last few years, as mothers across the world were forced to adapt their careers to a work-from-home lifestyle, and in an instant become at-home teachers for their children as well.
We want to show gratitude and appreciation (and love!) to our moms every single day, but this year Mother’s Day seems particularly special — it’s the one time a year that they get the recognition they deserve, which also makes it the perfect time to give a gift that will make your mom feel good and improve her daily life and well-being. Of course as much as we want to celebrate our moms, we also know that budgets are tight, which is why we put together a list of affordable gifts, all under $100, that will still be oh-so impressive, for the most impressive lady of all.

XIO By Ylette Moon Card Necklace
