How about a fun gift certiticate?  Like to 1154LILL.com?  She can design her own handbag or gym tote!

Do you know if she registered anywhere?  I would say DO NOT follow your mom’s advice.  I think it’s very sweet that you want to get her something and I think she will find it very enduring and special to receive a gift from you.

I don’t think a cookbook would be insulting (does she like to cook)?  What kinds of things does she enjoy?

If she likes cooking, that would be a nice gift.  Or you could always give her something nice from a store like Williams Sonoma or something.  Otherwise, some nice frames would totally be appreciated I’m sure.

I think a cookbook would be cute. Especially if it’s something new-ish. I gave my mom’s bff a Semi-Homemade cookbook so it would be more during the week friendly. I also gave her my favorite bbq sauce (it was the grill book). Or maybe like a cooking for 2 cookbook? I would definitely write something in the front cover to put that extra touch on it!

I love vintage-looking aprons, like these from anthropologie: http://search.anthropologie.com/?q=apron&international=false

You could DIY one if you sew. I am not 50 (I’m actually 25) but I think a cookbook and apron is an ageless gift that anyone would love. And I’m not sure what your price range is, but they also have some totally awesome kitchen tools, like these cool measuring cups:

Wine Country Gift Basket is a great place to get great gifts that are affordable.  Just google it online.  That’s where I go to get all my gifts.
