Aghhh, what to get my Mum for Xmas!

I'm just finishing off my Christmas shopping and am stuck on what to get my Mum! The main things she likes are gardening and cooking and she's currently having a new house built so I wanted to get her things for all of those and so far, I've got a barbour jacket for walking the dog, one of those cast iron Le Creuset things for the kitchen, tights (every woman always needs more tights!) and a book on gardening but I feel like I need to get something else, maybe something "pampering" as she works incredibly hard and rarely gets time to herself but she's not overly into all that.
Does anyone have any ideas - especially ones that will be delivered before Christmas?! Anyone seen anything "quirky" that would be good for an outdoorsy, cooking loving 52 year old?!?!

Good idea, but she broke her back whilst horse riding about 20 years ago and now gets sciatica because of it so can't have any pressure etc on her back as it just hurts!

I work with a lady who also broke her back about 20 years ago (horse riding) and suffers from sciatica too. She tells me that these "oils" sets do her the world of good and they make her feel good generally. I don't pay too much attention to her but I am sure it would just be usual aromatherapy oils which come with information as to what oils do what for you. It might not be everyones cup of tea. This lady is very much in to "remedies" etc.

Rigby and Peller voucher if she lives in London or you do and she can come and visit you?

Well, she's a doctor, so as most of them do, she thinks "alternative remedies" are a pile of expletives... but thanks for the idea... would be good if she were into all that!

I thought the same actually! But no, she lives 3 hours from London, and I'm in Birmingham plus every spare minute she doesn't work she's helping with the house so wouldn't have the time anyway :-(

I agree with her.

I was told by a retailer that Barbour jackets were going to be very rare this year due to a lorry that was hijacked. I had no problem buying one and you obviously didnt so I am not sure how much truth there is in that.

Good luck in your hunt.

A nice bottle of wine or champagne? Some nice chocolates? A meal out? Theatre tokens?

Barbecue?

She's not a big drinker, and she's always "on a diet" (despite being a size 12!) but I could look into getting vouchers for her and her partner for meal out together! Great idea - thanks!

spa/pamper day experience... offers on at the mo - they are good. Try buy a gift dot com or google it. I will have a look for you and post what i find xx
#13
Thanks, but I bought her one for her Birthday last year, and also for Mother's day this year so I don't want to overdo it!
#14
You could get her a massage or facial voucher at a good local salon which would be nice and pampering.
#15
An orchid would be nice, you can get beautiful double ones from M&S or Tescos which look like they have come from a good florist.
#16
If she likes cooking how about a slow cooker or pressure cooker? :)
#18
Get a Christmas bag and fill it with smellies, bath stuff, pampering stuff from boots etc. It's fairly inexpensive and you buy stuff specifically for her so it shows a lot of thought as well.
