Celebrate that very special bond between mothers and daughters with a gift that will appeal to both women. Gifts can range from expensive such as cruise tickets, or a pass for a girl's weekend at the cabin, to smaller less expensive alternatives such as a bottle of toenail polish and a chick flick rental. Mother and daughter gifts, no matter what the price, offer opportunities for mothers and daughters to bond, spend quality time together, or preserve special memories.

Select a blank scrapbook in a colour or pattern that appeals to the family's sense of style. Stock up on insert pages and page protectors, as well as any special pens, sticker sets or other decorative flourishes. Wrap up everything together and include a card instructing mother and daughter to document a special trip they have taken together or to arrange photos from throughout the daughter's life. Suggest that mother and daughter work on the scrapbook together. Encourage mother to keep the scrapbook when daughter grows up and leaves home, or vice versa.

Activity Time

Recognise a special interest or talent that mother and daughter share and present them with a gift card that will allow them to engage in the activity together. Buy a gift card for mother and daughter to spend at a bead shop where they can sit and craft matching necklaces. Encourage those with beautiful voices by giving the mother and daughter duo an hour of recording time in a local studio. Delight a pair of sportswomen with an afternoon at the shooting range or on the golf course.

Framed Photos

Select a quality photo of mother and daughter taken at a special event or occasion. Copy the photo so that mother and daughter can each have one. Take the photograph to a frame shop to be professionally matted and framed, or the mother-daughter duo can create and decorate a frame. Consider making another copy of the framed photograph to give to a grandmother or special aunt.

Order matching T-shirts for mother and daughter. Go with a "Mommy" and "Me" matching set for babies and young mothers. Opt for a "Like Mother Like Daughter" shirt for older girls. Personalise the shirts with embroidered monograms or cute phrases or inside jokes shared amongst the family.
