For your mother's 60th birthday, choose a gift that is both personal and meaningful. Look to her interests and activities to make the gift even more special. Whether she is a gourmet cook, wears stylish jewellery or simple treasures her time with friends and family, there is a perfect present.

Scrapbook

Choose 60 favourite photographs that feature your mom and a friend or family member and have them reprinted. Ask the people pictured in the photographs to write a letter to your mother relating their favourite memories of being with her. Add your own letter regaling her with your favourite stories and assemble the entire package in a scrapbook, or have it bound in a book at your local printers for an unforgettable gift.

Aged to Perfection

Prove to your mother that many things get better with age by presenting her with a 60-year-old bottle of wine or champagne. Add tang to her meals with a bottle of 60-year-old balsamic vinegar. For tighter budgets, consider getting a 60-day-old block of cheese.

Charming Presents

Remind her of her accomplishments over the past 60 years with a charm bracelet with specially chosen charms. NPR calls them "history on a wrist" for good reason. Whether she once took ballet lessons, loved gardening or was an extensive traveller, there is a charm to commemorate each of those interests. Charm bracelets come in sterling silver and 14K gold, so they are available in a variety of price ranges.
