    u help me and i will help u! Im a mum and ive a 16 almost daughter!! what would you like??
    ok as a mum, id like my fav perfume which is madonna 2 for 15 quid in hughes, or id like
    a digital photo frame with all pics of the family in... or even a voucher for a pamper day....
    diff price ranges there from 15 quid, to 30 quid for digital frame to about 50 for pamper spa day...

    Similar to what pcnutta said, I once got a load of family photo's together and made a photo album. My Mum loved it. She will love anything that has thought in it. Cost doesn't matter!

    delivery is really good, ive bought from them this year, quite alot, Im thinking of buying the bubble bath machine!

    My suggestion would be........box of Lily O'Brien Chocs (Tesco £6.49) yummy and a hand made gift voucher to do some chores around the house, eg cook a meal, or do the weeks ironing, or make the beds, or baby sit for younger siblings so Mum can go out, any combination of any of these.
    Good Luck... remember cherish your Mum, I lost mine suddenly . regards Amelia

    Re: Digital photo frames, they are £24.99 in Tesco

    A good one with the weather getting nippy, a Per Una scarf from M&S. Shouldn't be more than about 20 quid. My mum loves em!

    .......and you could get a cheap memory card and put the pics on yourself-and keep updating it for her every few weeks?

    how about a new dressing gown - nice warm one - the diney store have some nice ones

    how about a new dressing gown - nice warm one - the diney store have some nice ones ort you could take her for a meal (the Ask 2 for 1 are till on) so that could be quite a reasonable night out

    How about taking her for lunch? I recently had lunch in bella italia it cost £20 for 2. I should mention that was a specific menu which was also a week day.

    I love the idea of a dvd, wine etc.

    Poundland have microwaveable popcorn atm, you could also get some malteasers and a dvd (any dvd) you can get them for as cheap as £5 and possibly get something like ame or shloer. Have a nice night in with her. Sure she'd apperciate it more than a disposable gift. :?

    Boots have some good deals on atm too, think this week will be an fcuk gift bag thing half price.

    I cant think of anything else right now. Got to buy my mum 2 presents in the next 2 months! Woops. Think i'll do somethig like the popcorn / malteasers / dvd thing for her... she loves dvd's! and i only get to see her about once every 2 months lol.

    I got my mum one for x-mas last year as I always steal hers... :oops: she loves it. Think i paid between £15- £20 in m&s, felt really nice.

    What about a watch or a necklace?

    Being a mum of an almost 16yr old boy, I would be very happy with anything. But I would be particularly impressed if he bought me a new top, make up, or some lovely stuff from lush! ( lush is especially good for us mums, its sooooo scrummy and special! My top would have to have a bit of sparkle to it as its the festive season! Actually, I hope my son looks on here at some point, i may have to tell him about it!lol
