Mom's Birthday?

ANSWER #3 of 28


Does she like jewelry? Clothes? Maybe a gift certificate to her favorite clothing store. If she likes watching movies, you could get creative and get her a subscription to Netflix or Blockbuster online.

Walgreens and other pharmacies often have giftcards, you could go there and try to find one for a spa. I did that for my mom one year and she loved it :)

Hope that helps.

ANSWER #5 of 28

My mom just recently had her birthday and she loved what I got her. I got her a Starbuucks gift basket. I don't really know if your mom likes Starbuucks Coffee, so you could get her a gift card, a movie, book, or even some bath stuff. If your mom does like coffee, go to Kroger or Publix and look for baskets full of stuff. Or just go to Starbuucks Coffee.

ANSWER #12 of 28

Lat minute, try flowers? In advance, get her flowers once a month for a year. Any type of gift that recurs is good. We all know that women love to get gifts almost more than they love the gift itself. Moms also like to be in regular contact with their kids, initiated by the kid, so get her something that she can look forward to again and again- but change it every year, OK?

Also Go to bed bath and beyond if she likes any products on TV like bumpits and bullet express.And you can get bath stuff there too! That should help you out!!

Well, I would get her something like a spa, movie tickets (alone) or you or your dad pay for dinner if you go out.

I think the perfect gift has to simple, feminine, and it doesn't have to be expensive. also remember, women love to be complimented!

I believe the perfect gift is a fashion accessory, like a scarf! Why?
1) it is relatively inexpensive
2) women love scarves! i have seen how they go crazy over them.
3) accessory items are never out of style. and there is an infinity of styles and colors
4) you don't have to worry about sizes or anything like that! yeah!

here are some nice items you might consider from a website with a large selection and affordable pricing:

a warm scarf: [link removed]
