My Mum is 60 next week; whilst I pride myself on buying just the right gift for just the right person.. she, as we all do, has everything!

Any suggestions would be most appreciated

Do you know what organizations she cares for?

I have done it for a few birthdays and/or retirement partys for professors where we honour his/her birthday with a donation to an organization meaningful to them.

For ie, our class donated our collection to the Lung Association for my Prof who was a respiratory therapist.
It really meant alot to him and we got to help a great cause too!

Good luck! I appreciate how hard it is to shop for those not needing anything!

She might also enjoy something consumable. A bottle of her favorite adult beverage; fancy smelly soap; even flowers. Gifts of flowers slow way down for women of a certain age, I've noticed.

The most important thing to remember about gifting a women of mature years is to give her nothing that she'll have to dust.
