Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! If you still need to get mom something, but you’re a little short on cash or just want to get her something different, UsNews.com has you covered. Check out the list below.

1. Journal

Get sentimental with a gift mom can use to express her feelings. A journal is a thoughtful present that will encourage her to take time to reflect. And you can find plenty of journals that cost less than $10.

2. Wind Chimes

Mother’s Day is in the spring, making it a perfect holiday for gardening gifts. Celebrate mom’s love of the outdoors with a beautiful wind chime that she can listen to and enjoy on those breezy afternoons.

3. Plants

Speaking of gardens, give the special woman in your life a gift that can live on way past Mother’s Day: a potted plant or shrub. Choose among a broad selection of indoor and outdoor varieties. Mom will be sure to think of you every time she tends to her new flowers.

4. Flip-Flops

Give mom a gift she can get lots of use out of in the next few months with a summer essential: flip-flops. Whether she’s running to the store or taking a trip to the beach, she’ll appreciate a pair of stylish new sandals.

5. Cellphone Case

For the tech-savvy moms out there, how about a new case for her smartphone? These products have the tendency to be more expensive, but with a little searching, it’s possible to find cases that cost under $10.

6. Lotion

You can’t go wrong with a little pampering. Try giving mom a gift she can use to relax – you know, after all those stressful things you put her through. From lotion to body soaps, you can find a variety of spa-related products for less than $10.

7. Coffee Mug

Not sure if mom needs lotion? Cater to her taste buds instead with a coffee mug. Available in all sorts of shapes, sizes, designs and colors, creative mugs can make gifts that are as useful as they are thoughtful.

8. Picture Frame

Nothing is as touching as a picture of you and mom together that she can treasure forever. For gift-givers on a budget, pick a frame that costs less than $10, then simply print your own picture to put inside.

9. App

For a present that’s totally unconventional (and totally 2015), give mom an app. Whether she loves playing Candy Crush on her smartphone or listening to music on her tablet, find an app that suits her taste in technology.

10. Jewelry Holder

You’ve given mom jewelry for Christmas, her birthday and Valentine’s Day, but have you ever considered that she might need a place to store all those necklaces, bracelets and rings? For a present that’s both practical and creative, surprise mom with a jewelry holder.
