My sister send me a message on facebook informing me that she will be coming home this September 22 because of my mother’s birthday on the following date. That would just be in time because during that time, I am already in our home. My mother would be 64 years old by that time so we decided to have it celebrated outside as a special gift to her. I am also thinking of another special gift to give to my mother but until this time, I could not think of anything yet. I already gave her a wrist watch last Christmas and I know she really liked it because she wears it most of the time. There are also other things like bag, figurine and other items that I gave her, so now I could not think anymore of what to give her on her especial day. Perhaps you could help me to decide what item is best to give her on her birthday. I know that I have a very limited budget this time but still I want to give my mother a special gift. Thank you. Your opinion will be greatly appreciated.

Advance happy birthday to your mom. Why not giving her a special video wherein all people that she love will be there. Gather your family and her friends t make a special video greeting presentation for her. With this, she'll be appreciating and realize how wonderful mom she is through out the years. Hope I'd help. Enjoy on your mom's birthday. :)

Thank you for the suggestion fatlex. I hope I have time to do it. But I do not have a camera for that purpose. I think I'll wait for my sister to come so she can make a video.

Why not give her a day of service. You can give her a spa treatment with manicure, pedicure, facial, etc. Rent a nice hotel room that has a jacuzzi, decorate it to be soothing and relaxing. Have some mood music. If you want to go all out, hire a massuse. The more you do for her the less expensive it will be.

Advance happy birthday to your mom! I can feel you, sometimes it is so hard to think of a gift to your loved ones specially when you are on a tight budget but nonetheless, moms are always appreciative so I know whatever you give her she will love it. In my case, my mom loves to have framed photos of us and her grandchildren, she cherished that so I always give her that as a gift :)

i am not really a material person and most of the time i prefer to have a get together such as dining out or going to a beach party. i would like to cook for my mother and any loved ones i have. this give me happiness at the same time they feel happy to eat and get praises for my cooking talent. this s the type of gift where i like my mom to make her stomach full and also love gathering and time to share stories with my family around a table filled with nice food.

Hi Aries, extend my greetings to your mother, wish her good luck,, good health and happy family always. We celebrate my moms birthday by treating her outside. We surprised her with simple exclusive treat with the presence of the whole family her children and grandchildren. that makes her happy already. My mother once appreciate the whole body mirror at home, so that is one gift she recieve, a flower will be good also what counts for her is our presence and we're enjoying her day. I give her a figurine compose of 6 head up elephants which I bought when I travelled and visited the taouist temple. have a happy time with your mother.

the special gifts are not dependent on money but love and the siutuation of hearts.a deeply loved flower present to the mother may happy her more than a new model mercedes car,given only to complete formality.so what you hav to do is to buy a thing to which she is emotionally attached and then present it like you have nothing valuable but your mother in this world.

Maybe you can give her a new phone with special features. Sorry, I am not a gift adviser but that's the best thing I had in mind. As we know that oldies doesn't like much technologies but mobile phones is one of the great thing I know that is best to gift. My mom is almost on her 60's and really enjoy the best and newest gadget.

give her a family portrait. moms get more and more sentimental as they get older. an a2 sized picture of the whole family in an elegant(not necessarily expensive)looking frame would probably make her clap her hands.

Firstly,I think you coming home is the best present for your mother,parents do not expect some good gift from their kids,so just spend more time to accompany your mother. Secondly,if you really want to give a special gift to your mother,I think you should buy tonic to your mother 'cause she is 64 years old,you should care about her health more.
