I am seriously drawing blanks on my mom’s upcoming b’day gift.
My budget is $200 or under. I have two days to shop (not a lot of time). Need to find something and can’t figure anything out.
Do you remember what you last gave your mom for her b’day? I’m hoping to draw inspriation for your gift giving?
My mom is practical vs. experience (so, no tickets to anything, massages, etc.). She’s also horrible at using gift cards (she’ll usually buy something for someone else). My mom’s also older if that matters (she’ll be 79). I usually gift her things she needs (she rarely buys anything for herseslf). Usually it’s clothes, or stuff for the house, or jewelry, etc.
ALL I can think of right now is to get her a gift certificate for a salon to get a nice haircut (something she wouldn’t do for herself) – but I feel like she prefers tangible gifts and something more useful…. but, again – totally drawing blanks.
She’s retired, but doesn’t really have any hobbies. She loves playing games – (I already got her some crossword and puzzle books). She gardens, but has everything under the sun for that.
I guess I could shop for some clothes or jewelry, but with the time I have, it would be a small miracle if I could find something…. so I’m looking for a backup plan.
