Mom is celebrating her birthday soon. Any suggestions on a present? For her previous birthdays, I gave her make-up and beauty products, but I think I've gone overboard with them as she doesn't use ...
A ticket for a day at spa, a massage, beauty treatment.
A good book or a DVD with a good women film. (Madison Bridges, Voyager now, Something's Gotta Give)
An antique (picture, sculpture, a vintage bag or a china trinket box)
I like that first line of yours - I do this for my wife sometimes and it's always welcome. - I find occasional 'for no particular reason' gifts are always a good thing !
