I’ve seen a meme going around Facebook that says something to the extent of “it’s hard to buy your mom a Christmas gift when she deserves an island, but all you can afford is a candle.” It makes me chuckle every time.

A little bit of pampering and appreciation will go a long way in showing your love. Here are some great affordable gifts for working moms. In fact, this list has 10 ideas of gifts for working moms under $25.
