Mother's Day 2013 Gifts: Freebies, Affordable, Sentimental Items And Beauty Tips

Struggling to find that perfect gift that will put the most luminous smile on your mother's face tomorrow?

No need to worry because we got some amazing last-minute ideas that will not only earn you a hug, but a year's worth of bragging rights. These thoughful items prove that gifting on a budget does not have to be stressful, according to Kendra Scott, CEO of Kendra Scott Jewelry.

The mother of two tells ABC News that moms love handmade gifts like a "decorated frame with a sweet moment displayed inside." She suggests $10-and-under crowd pleasers like Etsy's Letterpress-printed Mother's Day Card, a magazine subscription or rose bush, which both mom and child can plant together. Of course, breakfast in bed and bouquet of flowers sends a caring and sincere message.

For $20, try buying something that complements your mother's interests, Scott said. If she loves to cook, buy a recipe book; if she is a caffeine connoisseur, stop by a local coffee shop for a bag of her favorite blend. If she loves wine, raise a glass of her favorite drink in appreciation. But if you had success with gift sets in the past, try buying one in stores or online ordering a unique one from companies like Harry & David. But warning: online ordering could equal higher shipping prices to deliver the gift in time. For more ideas, click HERE.    

If Freebies is what your looking for, food is always a delicious option. According to the Huffington Post, IKEA is offering a breakfast for moms, and TCBY and restaurant Uno's are offering desserts.

We also suggest a very personalized, sentimental gift like thanking your mom for all the incredible beauty tips that she taught you. Allure Magazine reports that "mother knows best" with bestowing her pearls of beauty wisdom: keep your hands off your face, dodge the sun, put on lotion after showering, do not overtweeze, put on blush, dedicate one night to pamper yourself and more.
