Update: Ok, so I settled on a plum tree. Why you might ask? I don't know. Could be a symbol of youth. But please do not stop posting your ideas. There's always next year... -- So my mothers birthday is coming up and I feel I have to give her something. I asked her what she wanted but she said that she didn't really want anything else than a good dinner etc. So, what to do? My dad already shotgunned the dinner so I should come up with something else. Got any ideas? Do you usually give your parents gifts? What do you give? I can't really remember how I solved this issue last year... Things done in the past though; glass coasters with pics of her kids (that would be me) a gift card for a massage place (bad idea, wallet empty) A home made wooden bowl (obviously an bad idea but somehow considered sweet if you're 10 years old) I'm thinking about one of those Frö greenhouses from Ikea and maybe add a plant to that.
