When shopping for a gift for your mum's 70th birthday, you should consider her state of health. Some gifts may aid their daily struggles while others may add to an already active social life. Sentimental gifts, or items which recall fond memories and events, can also serve as suitable birthday gifts.
Commemorate children and grandchildren
A proud mum loves to celebrate her children and grandchildren's lives and accomplishments. As a result, a woman in her 70s may appreciate customised wall frames, digital frames or scrapbooks highlighting momentous occasions in her children and grandchildren's lives, including birthdays, formal dances, graduations and wedding days. You can even hire a photographer to take pictures of your mum with her kids and grandkids or commission an artist to paint a portrait of the bunch. Another option includes a piece of jewellery, such as a necklace, ring or bracelet, featuring the encrusted birthstones of all of the recipient's children and grandchildren.
Monthly dinner clubs
Monthly dinner clubs serve as an excellent gift for mums who do not get out of the house much due to limited mobility. The dinners, which arrive via mail and packed in dry ice, may include such gourmet ready-made meals as lasagne, baked chicken and fillet mignon. Additional gift options include such snack fare as fruit, coffee, chocolate or gourmet popcorn of the month clubs. To complete a cosy night in, you may also sign your mom up for a mail order DVD rental service. Active 70-year-old mothers may receive gift tokens to their favourite nearby restaurant and a local cinema for a night out on the town.
Tea party supplies
Some mums may enjoy entertaining friends and family in their homes, including afternoon tea or garden parties. Your gift may include antique tea pots for such occasions, as well as such themed items as stacked serving trays for small sandwiches, decorative sugar cubes, creamers, sugar bowls, a variety of teas, as well as tea bag infusers and holders. Your gift can also include feminine tea cups, saucers and spoons, some of which come coated in honey or chocolate for added flavour.
