Present for mom...
hmmm well i've got presents for just about everyone on the list but good ol' mommy

what type of stuff do you think a suburban wife would like? she likes it when i get her stylish things (i think becuase it makes her feel all young and cool:p) so ideas out of teh box are good.

What are her interests? You could get her a watch, a bag, books, clothing, or shoes - the list goes on! I'd tell you what I got my mother for Christmas, but I have a fear that she'd read this post and spoil the surprise. :p

my sister and i usually go in on gifts for my parents. we try and get her, and my dad, something from a store they like. like my mom likes lucky brand and j. crew so we go there. so maybe just check out her favorite store.

This issue was the red-headed issue, and my mum's a ginger, so its perfekt!

I'd love that too!

In the same line of thinking.... I like to give people an "experience" rather than something they might just buy themselves (or for the person who has everything). A few months ago, my mom mentioned wanted to go to the ballet, so I got us two tickets to go together and then got her something small to go with the tickets. It is something that will be nice and memorable for her.

I have no clue what I'm getting my mom...


I'm leaning towards getting a photo of her framed though.

^ You cannot go wrong with a photo.

One year my sister and I got our pictures taken by a professional photographer for our parents. Parents eat that shiz up.

getting some nice skin products can be a good idea..
especially if it's a splurge that she wouldn't normally get for herself..

like something by la mer or some of the other skin care brands that supposedly work wonders..

How about a cute or fancy mug? I once got my mom that and she appreciated it since she drinks a lot of coffee.

^ That's a good idea. I used to buy my parents mug after mug for Christmas and birthdays until they finally ran out of room to store them.

my brother and I are making decorative art for part of my family.
but my mother's side of the family is pretty cheesy and suburban
so, we might just take her out to dinner, or give her a gift certificate to a restaurant.

nothing says "i didn't know what to get you" better than the gift of food.

this is a helpful thread though
good ideas
