  • depends how much you like her. if you want to give her a heart attack, buy her a bondage blow up doll and a vibrator.

    if she is physically deteriorating get her one of those claws at the end of the stick so she doesn't have to bend over to pick things up. also a nice brunch with her family would be nice. =)

  • lol mythicmmm my mom would freak. Im the kind of person who likes to make stuff maybe a photo album of pics of her of her life this far. My dad turned 60 last year and his favorite gift was an album like that his sister made.

  • I forgot to mention that she is in a different state then I am so I'm trying to put together a package for her

  • That all depends on your budget. Since you are a crafty person you could go with the photo album/scrap book idea. My son is stationed in Japan and from time to time we send him a cd of pictures of family and friends set to music. He loves them.
    Another thought is to send her to a community play. All you have to do is google her home town and theatre---select the play---buy tickets on line and usually they will hold them for her at the box office. Tuck in a gift certificate to a restaurant close by and you have given her (and maybe a friend) a night out on the town.

  • I agree with doing a scrapbook, or if she wears perfume, get her a giftset of her favorite scent.
    My mom loves Candles so i always get her some candles and she always likes those collectable plates. hmmm..i cant think of anything else since I dont personally know your mom, but good luck!

  • I've done a lot of gift sets for 60th birthdays through Avon. If you want to make a gift basket I'll give you free shipping from my webstore Good luck!

  • Is she 60 years young or 60 years old? Anything that would make her feel younger. The spa thing, but for the two of you together. Make it a mother daughter day.
