More pocket money-friendly gift ideas for your kids to spoil you on Mother's Day

I featured a few of the cheap but lovely edible gifts that your kids can pick up at Asda with the pennies from their piggy banks but I'm back with some more ideas, and this time they're calorie-free ! I can't believe the prices. They're incredible value and I can just imagine how proud kids would be to buy these with their own money to offer to Mum on her special day.


Pocket Money Presents

This adorable ‘I Love Mummy’ Mug is only £1, perfect for little ones that want to buy something special for Mum with money from their piggy bank. With a cute design and a sweet message, this will soon become Mum’s favourite mug for her cup of tea.
