Your mom may be your BFF now, but unless you were the real-life version of Gilmore Girls, you probably definitely gave her a bit of trouble back in the day (*raises hand*). Well, this Mother's Day is your chance to make up for all those headaches and grey hairs by showing Mom just how much she means to you with the perfect (and perfectly-priced) gift. Of course, you want to give her the absolute best, but you don't have to empty your bank account doing it. In fact, this year, you don't have to dole out more than $50 (yep, you read that right!).

Case in point: A customizable throw pillow cover that features you and all your sibs' (and sibs-in-laws') names on it only costs $15. Thoughtful and cheap? They said it couldn't be done, but they were wrong. Or maybe your mom's got a green thumb? She'll love this DIY kitchen herb garden kit that's easy to use and will freshen up all her favorite recipes. Perhaps your mom could use some R & R after the last year (because, I mean, who couldn't)? Gift her a crystal-infused bath soak that'll instantly transform her bathroom into a luxury spa.

And those aren't the only wow-worthy gifts on this list. From a colorful twist on the classic bouquet to a personalized birthday constellation illustration, these 57 best Mother's Day gifts—all under $50!—are sure to make Mom smile on her big day.
