What are you getting/have you got for your Mum this Christmas?

Found 6th Dec 2010
I am SO stuck this year with what to buy her..

She's a teacher so she gets loads and loads of candles, smellies & chocolates at Christmas..

Last year I got her a kettle and toaster because she needed them.

She doesn't need anymore jewellery, can't get her anything nice for the house really as her dogs wreck everything!!

Any original ideas please?

Thanks for the suggestions - I wish she didn't have those bloody dogs then there would be no problem.

I don't have any recent photos of the LO and my camera is broken, might see if I can borrow one. Or I could just get her a camera to take her own, she's pretty useless with technology mind

sickly I like that idea but we live in Cumbria, I don't think there are any here..might look into some others around the area..

Keep the suggestions coming people

It's hell trying to get a good one isn't it!

I've got a reaaaally nice picture of my son and my niece - but I don't think the quality is good enough to get it a decent size

Why don't you get her some of those sheepskin slippers that have been posted,they look nice.

I know what you mean - everyone already has everything, it sometimes seems.
Whenever I cannot think of what to get, i get something 'disposable' so it doesn't matter if they don't like it or not, like booze or houseplants.

Ignore poor quoting!!
