  • Cook her a fabulous meal, plant some flowers for her, take care of a chore for her. Sometimes the gift of time & attention is better than anything store-bought.

  • Bake her a favorite dessert. If you have any flowers in your yard, clip some and give those to her. Have your dd help make a special craft for her.

  • You know mom just love to be though of and that she will love anything you get her. Maybe you could just spend the day with her. Go have a picnic or take her to a movie.

  • How cheap is cheap? I found an awesome birthstone jewelry website, and found some angel earrings for MIL - they were only $11 (plus I think $5 shipping) and they look like $30 boutique earrings IMO. Other than that I have no idea, I'm getting my bro & sis to go in on a gift for our mom.
