I have made her a necklace, and have bought her a watch, and a Shania Twain CD that has her and my Dads wedding songs on. So greatful for online shopping, i'd have been mortified buying that CD in a shop.

I have no idea yet. I might just take her out for lunch, a few days before so it's just her and me. H has bought his mum a doorstop!

So far I've managed to get them a welsh slate magnet with a heart on it which we picked up in Llanberis last week, not sure what else I'll get, we don't normally spend a lot.

We're taking her out for a meal on Mothers day. That's enough

I don't normally spend much- £20 max. I'm not very imaginative either so will keep an eye on this thread for some ideas!

We tend to just do flowers and chocolates. Last couple of years I made some buns. This year I've bought her a plaque from I Heart Henry. Want to get/make a nice card for her from O.

That's a good question, must get thinking about this! (This year it co-incides with my daughter's birthday so I've been thinking about that more than about my mum). She is coming over for lunch on the Sunday. I won't spend very much, I may buy her some bulbs or a plant for her garden plus some chocolates or something.
AK - I'm am amused at the idea of you having being too embarrassed to go into a shop and ask for Shania Twain.
Catarina - I got my mum a doorstop the other year for Christmas. It sounds like a weird thing to buy but she wanted a pretty looking one which she could use to stop doors banging shut in the summer.
Other ideas are things like photoframes with a family picture in, perfume, make up, body lotions, a book, stuff like that.

I just hope H puts in as much effort when it comes to my Mother's Day present from F!

2 bottles of Baileys - she's very easy to please! Oh and a handmade card :-)
