So much depends on your mom's personality and her level of activity. Most women enjoy new clothing, even if it's a new cardigan to go over several outfits (elders are often cold), or a new top. Of course flowers are a treat for many. Dinner out after church is good if she would enjoy that. If she likes crossword puzzles, a nice book of them may be appreciated. If she likes music, CDs and/or DVDs of vintage music that she enjoys could be good. A DVD of an old movie that she would like could also be a consideration - and then offer to watch it with her.

It's nice to get useful articles which can be found online that depend on her abilities and disabilities, but I do think that something that is a bit frivolous is nice once in awhile. Many of our elders scrimped most of their lives and didn't treat themselves often.

We'd love to know what you thought of. Please let us know how things are going.

I'm a sucker for unscented, flameless candles. QVC has a nice selection, some are seasonal or religious in nature and anyone I've given them to enjoys them. Some come with timers, so they act as a night light. You can give a pillar candle and buy a silk flower candle ring for spring, then swap it out with something seasonal for fall and Christmas. My MIL enjoys homemade cookies and fudge, but I gift only small amounts that we enjoy while we visit. (She likes to save things and unfortunately we've found stale cookies or hard fudge weeks later on subsequent visits.) I've also brought a bottle of wine to toast a special occasion, along with a small cheese and cracker/fruit plate I've made up at home--just makes the visit more festive.

Mom loves to get chocolates, even like Hershey's kisses. She lives in a memory care facility, so I get them out when I visit and we share them. The caramel ones are softest, so that's best for her. Boxed chocolates are especially festive and indicate a Special Occasion.

Last week I baked a loaf of date nut bread from a recipe of my mother's mother. I arrived for my visit with my mother while the bread was still warm! As soon as I showed her what I had baked for her she immediately started to unwrap it. We moved to the kitchen and she had a slice and a half! Of course 20 min. later when I referred to the fact that she had leftovers for the next day she said that she had not had any date nut bread what was I talking about.......

Food gifts, sticky buns. I had a great aunt that expected them whenever my mother visited her. I have sent food gifts to elders at Christmas. Flowers and plants of course. And lotions, good smelly lotions if she can still smell. a little cash for her to have to buy things. Just a couple of fives would make her happy. Mad money.

My mother in law likes an old fashion corsage to wear all day. She is pretty much house bound and gets furious when you purchase items for her, so a beautiful corsage, a special breakfast with the best china, then a nice home made dinner and special prayers during the meals. I play Christian music in the background and pick a special bible passage to discuss or a great topic (if you were on an island. . .or who is the first person you want to meet in heaven?)

The best gift you can give her is to visit, and take dinner to her or take her out, so she does not have do all the work.

my mom lives for chocolate and flowers. I bring flowers from my garden all the time and when they are not blooming, from the store. I tell my out of state bother to give me the Christmas, mother's day, etc money so I can keep her in flowers instead of them spending $50 for mailed ones that only last a week or less. I can keep her in flowers and ocassional bottle of wine for 2 months with that 50. I make sure she knows who the flowers are from.
