Chances are your mother was there for you with tissues, smiles, and the best home-made dinners while you were growing up. So when her birthday rolls around, why not buy her a special gift? There's no perfect answer that ensures that you choose the very best gift for her, but a little thought goes a long way. Did she recently mention something breaking? Does she love her garden? Think about what your mum could really use, or if you want to pamper your mother, give her something that she wouldn't usually buy for herself (like a spa treatment). Just make sure you get her something that she'd like if you take the "something she wouldn't buy for herself" route.

While that is a bit of an extreme example, the concept should be applied when considering gifts.
