Red wine, mulling spices, Christmas mugs, mulled wine jug with a warmer that it sits on.

My mum is one of those women who has everything and adores completely unnecessary things like that!

A reflexology session. I think.

Kindle fire. And the hours of teaching her how to use the bloody thing. I swear I lost years of my life when I gave her my old iPhone

perfume gift set smile I bought her a givenchy set a few years ago and she was so chuffed with her "expensive posh" perfume grin instead of white musk from body shop bless her.

A bottle of Bacardi and some money towards her night out on boxing day, we always go out, but this year she cannot afford it. I offered to pay for her, but she refused, so she's getting it as her present.

TaffyandTeenyTaffy Fri 22-Nov-13 22:16:01

Tickets to an ice show with a meal out, a poppy brooch and a cape.
Need a charity type gift too....

A goat?

National Trust Membership renewal and a few cheap smellies so she has something to unwrap.

A whiskey taster set and some nice glasses to drink it out of.

That is the wrong way round

I'm knitting her a shawl in some fabulously soft yarn that DS chose. It's coming up beautifully.

A stocking with nice make up (mascara, nail varnish, eyeliner, lipstick, blusher), mini baileys and wine, brolly, gloves, chocs, hand cream, candle, book, cd, tweezers etc

I don't get to choose her a present, I get told what to buy, because she absolutely can't bear to relinquish control for a single second...ever. We then have to spend about a month choosing a present 'that MEANS something so I can keep it and look at it'. Bear in mind we are talking about a fairly small amount of money being spent. The kids aren't even allowed to choose something. It's pretty say really and I think she misses out.

If I could Choose I'd get her the magazine subscription I know she loves and some gorgeous chocolates from her favourite place and (money no object) a trip to a place I know she is dying to visit.
