Uh who is this woman, you know? What does she like/dislike? What’s her style?

Hrm.  Bake her a cake?  That’s what I did for BF’s mom the year I found out it was her birthday.  

Stay away from those bath and body kits, even if you know she has a soft spot for mango-peach-pear.  It’s likely that most everyone knows she likes mango-peach-pear, so she has a glut of that stuff already.  

If she likes to have an occasional cocktail, you could get her a festive wineglass.  There’s some group that does martini-glasses all painted up with a recipe on the bottom.

Buy her a picture frame in a style that suits her taste and/or decor, to hold a future wedding picture of her son and yourself on your wedding day.

I would even put a “RESERVED” sign in the frame and explain what it is for.
