What would be a great gift for my mom's birthday?

Our budget is kinda tight for the rest of the month, but I wanted to get my mom something not only for her birthday but to show her my appreciation for helping me in the last tri-mester of my pregnancy. Any ideas?

  • What kind of stuff does she like?
    My mom loves accessories.
    So I had taken her out to a restaraunt for dinner (we had chinese because its both our fav) and I had bought her a really stylish and unique handbag from a little trinket store. She loved it.
    As long as you think of your mom while shopping...you will think of the perfect gift! :)

  • Can you take her to lunch? Or make her a nice lunch/dinner and have her over? What about a gift certificate to have her nails done?. Are you crafty and could you make her a frame, etc? Personally, I just like getting flowers.

  • Get her something you know she likes but wouldn't spend the money on.
