Take a cocktail shaker and put it all in… and shake the hell out of it..
Voila.. You got some ideas!!..

No gift comes close to the joy of travelling. A full vacation package to visit someplace new is a good idea for a gift. Let her go with Dad or maybe just her girlfriends.
Let her be worry-free, away from the daily hassle and work.
There are various packages to choose from. From just some relaxing days at a beach- resort to a full scale travel experience.
It might be expensive. But as it is for your mother, if you can afford it you are good to go.
You can also take her to visit her childhood hometown or school. Let her share those old stories with you.
Gift for the woman that she is..

For the Art-Mom: buy her a whole new set of art and craft supplies. Furthermore join an art class that you and your mother can attend together–.
For the outdoorsy Mom: Get her hiking supplies if she hikes and go on a hike with her. Buy her rare seeds and plants if she is into gardening.
For the cooking genius Mom: There are a lot of things to get a Mother who loves spending time in the kitchen. Get her a brand new cake batter mixer or coffee maker that just came in stores.
Be creative. Come up with a gift that she can use and will be exited to try out.
Luxurious? Soothing? Rejuvenating? Are those the words you were looking for in a gift? Buy her a month’s spa package. Nothing can replace the chance to relax and revive one’s body. Massage therapies, Ayurvedic package, Sun lovers package , Body treatments.. The list goes on.
Let her be pampered and taken care of for a change. And let it be classy
Your presence is the perfect present..
Your presence is the best gift you can give your mother. No matter where you are, try to make it for that special day. Spend the whole day beside her. Talk to her, make her laugh, give her long hugs and kisses.
Even if you can’t, in this era of internet and phone aren’t there ways to make her feel that you are there. Send her a Smartphone so she can see you whenever she wants.
Teach her to use those new technologies. Change her into that super cool techy-mom.
Its Shopping time!
Buy her stuff. Can any woman resist a shopping spree? Nuh-uh!
Take her out. Go to all those stores she wanted to but could not. Hunt down the things she wanted for a long time.
Have fun. Laugh and enjoy the whole day. Then a movie and some ice cream might as well be added. After all, every cake needs a cherry topping..
What is a Birthday without a surprise. There is no other surprise magical than the surprise of being loved. So be it special.
Let it be through a newspaper. Let her wake up to read the Birthday Wish and love from her children through the daily newspaper, along with thousands of others. Add her favorite family picture and your words of love.
Surprise dinner with old friends. Try not to make it one of those ‘‘jump out of the dark surprises’’. Instead, tone it down a little and make it classy. Let her anticipate and wait. Make her wait in the bedroom while you prepare.
When you bring her to the dinner table in her new beautiful dress, with eyes covered, let her eyes open to the dear friends of hers from the past, whom she lost touch with.
Track them down through old high school or college scrapbooks. Let it be a small and special evening that she can cherish.
