Thank you all for your suggestions!!

Next up--her 90th birthday in November---------------------

I have the same problem, my parents 80 and they have everything they need, so we dont usually get them items anymore. We get them gift cards for their favorite restaurants or store, they still love a deal so anytime they can eat or shop for free they love, or prepaid activity, golf for my dad, manicure or hair cut for my mom, things like that,my kids make up cards for free car wash or gardening help , maybe movie tickets so she can go to the movies? ahh it is hard isnt it lol or if you have a local theater where they put on plays, tickets for a show? hope any of that helps

I would look and see if there is any plays or musical artist coming to town in the next few months that she might like. My mom was thrilled a couple of years ago when we bought tickets to Neil Diamond for her.

I completed every entry requirement!!!
I have a few things in mind for your mother...She sounds like a firecracker!!!!! Love it!!!!!
(I will just list them)
*GC for a Spa Day Treatment
*Music CD's from her generation
*Photos of her & her children & family throughout the years in a video collage & them make a large framed photo. I have come to know that the older we get, the more that we miss our childhood & how wonderful it is to have those memories!!!
*I know this may sound expensive but U can find one affordable, A cruise,talk about exciting!!!!!
*Take her to do a makeover, head to toe & new clothes!!!
*How about a WII with some dancing or :moving" games with it?

pduthoy said...

If in doubt, our family gives framed photos. Maybe she would like that.

Quality time - at that age all they want is some special time with family - take her out to dinner and give her some pretty flowers or her favorite treat (candy). Spend time talking to her and listening to whatever she has to say (even mom advice -lol)

I'd suggest a ticket to a concert or a play that she'd enjoy, if there's something like that in your area. It sounds like she's got all the things she needs.

I would get her a baby tree sapling (of whatever her favorite flowering tree is) & see if she would like to help you plant it--that way it can live on for many years to remember her by--maybe get a little garden bench for both of you to rest on & chat after you plant it together.
