If u wanted a party -how abt a mani/pedi party at ur house using mostly stuff you already have? Whatever u don't have (like nail deco and etc) you can pick up super cheap at Dollar General, or Family Dollar. A home-made (or inexpensive store bought) facial and makeup afterwards would be a good addition, too. Home-made pizza, or snacks; maybe a mini cake specially decorated (by you) would round it out. If you just wanted a family affair you could make her favorite meal, and hand down a piece of your jewelry (or your mother's, etc.) that she has eyed in the past. Write a brief history of the piece and why you are giving it to her. You could also pick up an inexpensive piece of jewelry from Walmart. They have nice stuff reasonably priced, especially silver. Also, you could explain that things are tight, and u only have $X to spend &ask what she would like. Chances are ur daughter would love time w/ u over a present, anyway!
