Present ideas for my mum please?

Just wondering what everyone is getting for their mums as I need inspiration.
My mum is late 60s, main interests are music (classical) and photography. I've got her a stocking-filler of some magnetic music notes to mark her place at rehearsals but I cannot think of anything else to give her. I don't have a huge budget either, about £30-40 would be ok.

Tickets to a concert?

A book called Photography the Whole Story ISBN 978 0 500 29045 3
Shows iconic photographs and their history. It is also a reference book.

Wonderful book, both my OH and my DD have a copy.

I have got my mum;

Dvd box set
Some posh handcream
Some posh shower gel
Funky socks
Nice candle

I tend to do odds and ends rather than one bigger gift. Tbh I could go on buying but have run out of allocated cash!

Maybe a nice hamper of smaller bits?

All lovely ideas, thank you. I think I might have got her concert tickets last Xmas but I could try and find out if there's anything she'd especially like to go to.

Presumably she's got stacks of CDs ...

Don't be alarmed by the title, but The Oldie magazine is really excellent - lots of interesting/funny/thought-provoking articles, hilarious cartoons, challenging crosswords and not a single mention of a stair lift or hearing aid!

Ooh a magazine subscription is a great idea!
