Birthday Present

Ask a Question

Hi, any ideas for a birthday present? It is for my mum who lives abroad. She doesn't have any hobbies sadly so don't have any ideas. I have sent in the past flowers, plants, sweets. I want something different this year.

You could get a canvas made online of your son milestones one as I recall he not long had his first birthday. Or a blanket version

GSM I had books made by up-loading special photos from these people, the quality and price was really good and arrived within a week. https://www.snapfish.co.uk/home

i had a calendar made for my mum at christmas, each month had a photo of her with someone or her dogs or her children. she loved it and said she didnt even want to use it because it was so special! i included pictures of her mum and dad, even though her dad has now passed.

my mum's animal mad- so i also one year got a phone case that had a picture of her dog.

i also got a local artist to draw a canvas of her dogs.

Something with a picture on, like mug, or even in a nice frame. Or anything that’s she loves over here that she can’t get over there x

Why don't you send her a hamper of British Food. I know Bettys of Harrogate to ship abroad https://www.bettys.co.uk

Maybe you could give her something as a hobby? A craft kit in a box, maybe? How about candle making or felt craft?

Thanks everyone, very good suggestions but unfortunately most of them I have already done in the past or are not for my mum. In the end I am going to buy a difussor with essential oils.

How about a personalised vase? I bought one from Personalised Gift Shop a few months ago and it was lovely, reasonably priced too 🙂

A friend bought my mother in law a cushion with a picture of her and our son on it. It is her absolute favourite picture of them and she cherishes the cushion.
