Here's something creative that will be appreciated and you will have fun doing:
Make up a crossword puzzle and have all the hints be personal inside moments and jokes that only you two would know about. Put it on a poster board and add some clipart and some pictures to it!
The crossword puzzle could be time consuming and a bit frustrating ... you could do the same idea with a WORDSEARCH or WORDFIND puzzle.
Put your computer skills to work! Use Excel, get clipart from Yahoo Images Search, copy them, and reformat them, use a gluestick to put on posterboard.
Use graph paper, and pictures from magazines if you are not as good on the computer, and it will give it a homemade feeling.
This is a really beautiful poem too!
Women have strengths that amaze us.
They carry children, they carry hardships, they carry burdens but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up for injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without new shoes so their children can have them.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a new marriage. Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They have sorrow at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world spin!
Women do more than just give birth.
They bring joy and hope.
They give compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have a lot to say and a lot to give.

Sending flowers will be a simple idea but it is also a very powerful idea because every grandma (and mom) loves flowers! It appears to be very delighted to the receiver and will make them smile happily if you also them a big warm hug to show you how much you care and love her!
For those who are on a tight budget i think they will be surprised at here where the flowers are at a big discount plus a FREE glass vase:
20 Assorted Tulips
12+12 Assorted Mother`s Day Roses
Four of these above appears the most attractive purchase to me, what about you? :-P

I was gonna say get her a gift certificate to a Spa, any and every mother can appreciate that, its a good way for them to relax and get a massage, get their nails, feet done, a day for them to finally be pampered!... But if you are on a tight budget then cooking her a nice meal that day will be wonderful, make sure you cook something she likes, not her favorite dish because it may not be as good as she makes it but be extra attentive that day, get her some balloons and a nice touching card!

take pics you have and make her a photo album, you can cut the pics in different shapes and write little somethings on a strip of paper by the pic. like a pic of the three of you at the park, could say "day at the park, wonderful weather-date"
use your humor and have your bf write things too. pics are inexpensive and she can look at it anytime she wants.
you could also crochet a rag rug for her kitchen using old clothes from him and you. you tear the clothes into strips and try to put like colors together and tie them in a knot, then roll it into a ball and get a large crochet hook and a pattern you can get on-line probably. then make a rug.
another idea similar is to make a throw blanket out of old clothes. my mother recently passed and i am cutting her clothes into stars and making a small throw to cover up with when i sit out on the porch.
you can find lots of things to do that are very personal to someone if you use things that mean something to them, and give it from the heart.
hope your gift turns out great,

How about throwing her a bar-b-q party and she be the guest of honor for mother's day, complete with a cake?
You could invite her closest relatives and friends and even some of your & your boyfriend's friends.
I think she would be really touched by that. You could even get some baloons for decoration.

It's not always the money put into a gift, but rather the time, that shows people how much we care for them. Since your funds are limited, I would suggest spending time making a gift for your mom; something you can put your time, love, and personality into. This can be a greater show of love than a present bought at a store (though please don't take this to mean that buying something for your mom doesn't mean you don't love her a lot).
Some ideas for presents you can make may be a collage of pictures with you and her in it. If you have pictures that include you, your mom, and your mom's mom in it, even better! It would make an awesome keepsake for your mother to have pictures that include all three generations.
If you have a "paint your own pottery" kind of store in your town, its fun to go hand paint a special flower pot, bowl, cup, etc. that you can put your creativity into and maybe write a special message to her on.
One more idea might just be volunteering to help your mom out around the house for a day or two, especially if you know that this Mother's Day may be tough for her with the passing of her own mother. Fixing her breakfast, washing the dishes, cleaning up around the house, folding the laundry, or letting her pick an activity that you two can do together are all simple ways to show her how much she means to you.
I think it's wonderful that you want to show your mom support and show her how much you love her! Good luck and I'm sure whatever way you choose to show her you love her will be greatly appreciated.
