My DM is 65yrs old, but "young" and very active. She rides her bike everywhere (doesn't drive), goes to an art class and a dance class, enjoys reading and likes nature / wildlife / history. She gets all her books from charity shops or the library so wouldn't want one of those book subscription delivery things. She's already a member of English heritage and the national trust. I could think of a couple of house things to get her but also want something that is for her. I just have no idea what. Any suggestions please?

I've made a little hamper for my DM with lots of goodies of chocolate times drink, Christmas socks smile Christmas decoration from a church fair, scarf from M&S, that kind of thing.

As your mum is going to art classes how about some blank canvas and ask her to paint something for you.

Does she enjoying gardening?? Plants, plant pots, gardening tools, gardening classes etc?? Theatre tickets, basket for her bike (front or back), saddle cover, bird bath/feeder, binoculars... or if she enjoys cooking/baking then maybe something along those lines...

She doesn't really do gardening but a nice bird feeder is a good idea as she has lot of birds come into the garden. Thanks for that idea!
