    Present

    Heyo

    It's me ma's birthday soon, and i'm unsure of what present to buy her. So far i've got her a babyliss hair thing-a-ma-bob which came to £80, a card and £300 in it, a collagen light box thing-a-ma-bob which came to £330.

    However, i'd like to buy something that would be ICING on the cake.

    Do any of you have an idea what would be a great pressie?

    Thanks in advance!

    I got my Mummy a tablet for her birthday, just a Google Nexus 7" but she loves it, she has recently (in the past year) discovered facebook and the rest of the internet (much to my dismay) so the natural step up form the laptop was her to have one of these.

    She does love it, but took her a while (we even got a car mount for it and she uses it as a massive sat nav)

    @Sunnyknight, son you have got some great stuff there for your ma, think small for that extra thing Get yourself into one of those alternative therapy shops. They have fabulous little gem things not a lot of money but it is the meaning behind them.

    Or go on Groupon or Living Social Deals or Wowcher and get her an "experience" of some kind.
    Blimey, you have spent a lot of money on her - I get annoyed if my children spend more than about £30 on me

    (Some) Women tend to go nuts for either products from Lush (you can get some really good gift sets at various prices all gift wrapped!) or that Soap & Glory stuff from Boots. Again, they do gift sets, or boots usually have it on 3 for 2.

    Now there's a sweeping statement!
    Personally I'd rather go for a ride on a RIB around Southampton Water (as I did for my birthday) than have some smelly stuff that will probably make my skin itch...

    My Mums 60th in December, she's just been away on holiday so we said she could have her present early and we got her a Kindle and filled it with loads of her favourite authors. She loves it, has read so much more that normal (Dad says it was great, peace and quiet...)

    Of course this means she'll have to get another present on her actual birthday...

    I thought my family were cheap when I read the OP... Glad to see it's just Sunny having more money than sense. [Seriously, nearly £700 and he's still adding to it?]

    Also, my mum kind of freaked out when I bought her a DS and a couple of games, was about £130 back in the day. [She now has more DS games than I do and has borrowed a couple of mine.]

    And there is so much hate...

    He literally falls asleep at work and inhales compressed air, but appears to be on so much more than I am... I pretty much spend as much as I earn once I've paid all my bills.

    I couldn't help but read this and think of the scene in Snatch with Mickey on about the caravan.

    "It's nah feh me, it's feh me maaa"

    Why not a nice piece of jewellery? Something she'll be able to keep for her lifetime. Or even those places that do professional photos? One for just her, one for all of you as a family together? A picture speaks a thousand words sometimes </soppymode>

    I think £300 is VERY nice, however not very personal for your mum. So this icing on the cake NEEDS to be personal. Hard to help people with these sort of gifts though I'm afraid!

    My mum would love something like a nice framed photo of Me, bro & sis.
