Dad, do the kids need some help picking out a present for Mom for Mother's Day? These last-minute suggestions will warm mom's heart without breaking the family budget -- none of them costs more than $20.

Anne Geddes' photographs of babies are sure to evoke an "awwww" from Mom. Geddes' newest book, "Little Blessings" (Sourcebooks, $14.99), features her photos paired with a quote or blessing that highlights the joy of parenting.

This box of chocolates has enough for Mom to share with the entire family -- nearly 2 pounds of assorted candy in a long, pink box that says "love you mom" on top. The perfect impressive dessert after the kids serve breakfast in bed. $15.99, at Sears stores.

Does mom always tell the kids they are loved "to the moon & back"? This wood picture frame from Sugarboo reminds her they feel the same way. With room for two photographs of Mom and her little ones. $16.99, at Target stores.

Holiday-themed, soft pajama sleepshirts say "Tweetest Mom" and picture two singing birds, or use a variety of words such as "Best Mom," "Pretty" and "Sweet" to give Mom the message that she's beloved. $7.96 each, at Walmart stores.
