    @Rawns @X-13 Haters gonna hate! lol

    However, on a more serious note, @X-13, i have more sense than money. My mother (we've worked it out a good 100 times over 8 years) has spent around £50,000 on me and the same amount on my brother (rounded up) since we were born. A few thousand is pittance. I like to treat my parents as they treated me. They've spoiled me silly, and still do!

    Anyway, the idea of a picture frame with the whole family has been done tons of times. Seeing as my pa has also worked since the age of 12 in hard labour, i was thinking more along the lines of a cruise for a few weeks? Around the Mediterranean or something? Has anyone ever been on one? I think they'd enjoy a nice long break from work, and just relaxing 24/7.

    @TBlax As far as jewlery goes, i think i'd go overboard. What i was 18, i bought my ma a £800 gold necklace from Hsamuel. Now i'd buy a lot more, just to make sure she's well off, so speaking.

    @witch I was thinking about a similar idea. I just don't know what i'd..... get?

    Does she have any hobbies, or something close to her that you could put towards?

    My mum loves photography and also has a lot of old pictures of her wedding, and of her mum/dad and her nan/grandad - so this year I managed to grab some of them, get them touched up, and put on canvas for her. Was a nice touch, and she loved them.

    Currently trying to get hold of Happymeal Mk2 so we can both get a picture together in uniform for Christmas for her (She doesn't have a picture of us together in uniform after 6-7 years... :S).

    Maybe she also has a hobby she really enjoys?

    Rather than buy her something else how about doing something like making her a birthday cake? Or if a cake is too big, make her some biscuits or something?

    Hobbies... gardening or watching soaps. We have every channel on sky, so we're set there. Our garden is... well, in ALMOST tip top condition.

    She also likes going shopping, which i hope the £300 will cover lol

    As for birthday cakes or baking or cooking i'm shizzle at. So i'm screwed lol

    ^This.

    Anyone can just buy stuff. It takes effort to actually make something.

    Agreed. I always bake birthday cakes for the wife, not only because I love baking, but as it feels more personal then going out and buying a pre-made cake.

    Cake mixes aren't hard. Just make sure you don't burn it. [So no wandering off to play GTAV]

    It's not the final quality of it that's the point...its the fact you did it yourself and you tried, its worth more than anything in the world to a mother

    Doesn't matter if your rubbish, it's the thought that counts.
    She more than likely knows you can't cook, so imagine Ma Sunnyknight's surprise when you make something like this - from scratch...

    Despite popular belief, baking a cake is easy. Very easy, if you follow the recipe.

    This was what I made for the wife's birthday last month:

    Reupload + reference locally, please.

    imgur is blocked in a lot of schools, and I'm sure we all want to see the cake.
