Birthday Presents... particular one for my mum. I'm rather stuck for ideas and as this is a place with items and products galore I thought I'd ask you guys for suggestions.

    Budget at around 50 squids please. Thanks in advance as well.


    How old is your mum? Does she have any hobbies or interests?

    She'll be turning 50. As for hobbies and stuff - travel, reading, gardening. But as she's turning 50 I'd like it to be something a bit special and different.

    Yeah, for a 50th you need it to be special.

    How about a surprise weekend away?

    Holiday Inn where doing 2 nights for the price of 1 recently, you could check that one out and see if it's still running. Failing that register with the big well known hotel chains and you frequently get e-mails for offers, promotions etc.

    Hope this helps!

    And a very happy birthday to your Mum

    i would think dinner and a show would be great or just one of them considering budget my mum would love either .

    Seen as she's of the age for kids and possible grandkids how about a nice expensive photo album filled with photo's of all the family. You probably have hundreds (hard or digital) of all ages.

    Spend over the top on the album to get a quality one that you would never buy for yourself.

    It will last forever and hopefully remind her of good times.

    Maybe even look at scrapbooking ideas where they stick a ticket for a show the photo is from etc etc.

    Google scrapbooking to see what I mean. It can look really effective.

    Yeah I'd ditto what Greg says, put some time into creating an album for her, she'll appreciate the sentimentallity of it too x

    how about one of the digital photo frames - with pics already loaded

    Cheers guys, I do really like the idea of a photo album. Dinner and a show also sounds like an excellent idea, I'll have to see what's showing around that time.

    I've still got a couple more weeks to mull all the ideas over.

    So she's going to be 50, and you're budget is £50. Well how about a £50 note!!
