Has anyone got any ideas for my mum's birthday (she will be 61)?

She is v kind to us, would like to get something nice. Like me, she isn't really into material things (unless they are useful) or cosmetics or flowers and I am stuck! I don't even know what I would buy myself as I am minimalist and don't like clutter!

Thanks for any help!

Depends on how much you want to spend, but over the years have brought my mum the following

Day at spa
New glasses ie more expensive than she could afford
Pandora bracelet and then brought charms for other birthdays and christmas.
Theatre tickets

Any help to you

A weekend in Paris - for you and her?

An Indian head massage?

A really nice new winter coat?

National Trust membership or local attraction annual membership?

Slap up lunch somewhere posh - are you close to London - the Savoy is running Stictly Come Dancing tea dances every couple of months, as an example.

Hammock/ comfy chair for garden

Weekend away on a barge for all of you

Meal out for you and your mother and girly film afterwards?

Theatre tokens ; Eurostar tickets; Soemthing special like ballet or opera;

How does she like to indulge - is she a foodie; spa-person; theatre or travel?
