I am a mama's girl. So when it comes time to Christmas, Mother's Day, and other special days, I try to spoil my mama. However this year, I am having the hardest time trying to figure out what to get her for Christmas. This is a woman that I have bought everything you can think of ... PJs, shoes, electric toothbrush, jewelry, clothes, perfume. You name it, I think I've bought it.

So I'm trying to think of some things out the box and that won't cost me too much however she can appreciate. There is a recession and I'm trying to save. Here are a few that I've thought about: a gift certificate to a spa for a massage, a voucher towards a flight, or I was thinking of a mantage of small items (lip gloss, a scarf, a book, etc.) I'm sure my presence at home for a week is more than enough but still want to get her something :)

i think the montage of small gifts will get you the most millage because its more than one thing.

P & Reese, I need us all not to think so much alike. I'm making my mother a "winter survival kit" for Christmas. Footies, lotions, her favorite perfume, soaps, candles, maybe a warm throw. If you shop sales and discounts, you can put something like that together for the low.

I wanted to put a warm robe in the basket, but I got her the most plush robe EVER two years for Christmas and she adores it, so we're good there.
