50th birthday gifts.


Can anyone suggest anything for my mum. She isnt a gifts person. She doesnt like fancy products, bags, shoes, or anything you would give as a gift. She is a nightmare to buy for. Can anyone suggest anything might go down well ? Completely lost.

My mum is older but she has everything too so the last two birthdays I took her out to a concert and the second time to the opera and a swish dinner after. Maybe something like that would work for you and her too?

What about something like this, or a photo book of her life? You can add messages etc. I think not on the high street do them.

Love all these ideas And tbh, i would be pleased with any of them. Mum doesnt like normal tea, she doesnt eat cake. I like the idea of a meal. Thats something we could all do. Will look into nice child friendly places. I did her a big photo collage of pictures of the kids and she seemed to like that. Iv been trying to track down old family photos for a couple of years with no luck. They are all over the place with her siblings. She did say she would like a new handbag when i asked her what styles she liked she gave me a rough idea ( black, long and short strap, not shiney, not too hard but not to soft, zip on the main compartment. ) i showed her a few styles and she wasnt keen on any. We did think about getting her a nice expensive one because she usualy doesnt spend much. Infact she specified a £10 budget. She is so dificult to buy for. Me and bro decided if we go for something fancy we would go halves.
I just want her 50th to be great. We dont usualy get her big gifts but with all she does for us we ( me and OH) feel she deserves it.

From your description of a bag I thought of a radley bag. We have an outlet store near us so they work out a lot cheaper from there. Mines was£80 and my nuns was £60

Maybe you could go for a girly day, go for lunch and then shopping for a new bag (that way she can choose what she likes) and maybe a film/play/other performance she might enjoy after?
