 I need some ideas on what to get my mom fr X-Mas. I got her some perfume and a pj set and have no clue what else to get her. She is the hardest person to buy for because she has everything. The only thing that she has mentioned that she wants is the NOOK, I looked online and with the protection plan it is over $300. We just cant do that now because we are trying to finish buying everything we need for the baby. HELP PLEASE!!

 I can't really help you there.  We have only gotten my mom a professional phote of all her grandchildren together 6 of them all together.  I do have to get her something else but not sure right now.  We don't buy for our inlaws.

 Well, if your mom likes to read, how about some real books?  Maybe a gift card to Borders or B&N or Best Buy that she can put toward a Nook or one of the other eReaders?

how about a gift certificate to one of her favorite places. I buy my mom a giftcard to Dunkin Donuts every year and my dad one for AMC b/c they go to the movies so much. They love them b/c they know they will get used!

I agree on the gift cards!  Maybe she'd find what she wants on a good sale after Christmas since its a pricey item?  I get my mom gift cards to restuarants bc she doesn't have alot of money so its a nice treat for her to go out and not worry about paying for it!

if she isnt insisting on the nook color or 3G features walmart carries nooks now. i bought the basic one when it first came out, and i love it. they all have wi-fi, so they are all able to use the free wireless and access all the free content in-store without buying the fanciest one. the basic one is $149, & goes to $198 w/ 3G, then you hit the $200+ mark when you add color. still might be more than you are wanting to go, but just wanted to make sure you knew there were other options than the newest model, in case youd just seen an ad or something. did she specifically say a nook and only a nook? i love mine, and recommend nooks over kindles and t rest, but if she didnt say it HAD to be nook brand, there are lots of other, much cheaper ereaders available also.

I agree on gift cards or books. I'm sure she will love what you get her no matter what.
