What is a good Mother's Day gift for my MIL who lives out of state?

Like maybe a photo order gift I could send to her local Walgreens or Walmart, or something else I could ship to store somewhere around her? Or mail?

Hmm. She likes sewing, crafting and my kids.

  • For my MIL who lives out of town.. In fact completely across the country from us, we always send her her favorite lotions, some candy, and a sweet card with her Triple A renewal in it!!!

    She's 74, and drives all through Texas all by herself. So we make sure she has a cell phone and Triple A. It's her MD gift every year, and she loves it.

  • I live a long way from my mother and on Mother's Day I send her flowers. Every year. She just loves them! I think I'm the only person who ever gives her flowers ... Last year, I sent her an orchid rather than the usual bouquet and it flowered for THREE AND A HALF months!!!

  • How about a gift card to a local craft store?

  • Or you could go to something like Shutterfly or Personal Creations and make a photo mug with your kids on it and have it shipped to her. There are even magnetic puzzles you can have made out of photos of your kids, and people put the puzzles together on a fridge or other metal surface. Google "Heads Up Puzzles."

  • I will thanks Ballad.

    She already has a mug with the kids, and a canvas and 1,000 photo books

    Would she like some yummy chocolate covered strawberries? I've seen the ads & someone posted about them earlier- They look yummy! :p

  • I sent flowers. They should get there on Friday. Not very original I know, but works for me.

  • I think we have decided on a gift certificate for the movie theatre. Enough for two tickets, popcorn and candy. Flowers and berries are nice but over priced.
