When a person gets older it can be difficult to know what you should get for her for special occasions. When selecting a gift for your mom's 70th birthday look for gifts that are luxurious, useful or sentimental. In most cases it is best to put more thought than money into your mother's birthday gift because it makes the gift special.
A framed print can make a nice birthday gift for your mom because it can be decorative and sentimental. You could frame a poem about mothers, a family tree or a print of information from the day your mother was born. You could also get an artistic print, a family portrait or a painting of a place your mother loves.
Spa items make luxurious gifts for your mom. Lotions, bubble baths, candles, facial masks and scrubs will allow her to pamper herself. You could get her a new robe, slippers and lounge wear to go with it. A gift token for a spa is also a nice gift for her 70th birthday.
Food gifts are ideal because they are luxurious and you can make them personal. Pick some gourmet foods your mom loves but rarely indulges in. Think wine and cheese or tasty desserts. You can also do a gift card for her favourite fancy restaurant.
Photo gifts are sentimental and often well received. You could make a montage of photos from your mom's life she can watch on DVD or a collage she can hang on her wall. You may also consider a scrapbook. Consider getting a photo she likes on an everyday item like a mug, blanket, mouse pad or pillow. A personalised calendar of family photos or a digital photo frame are also nice gifts.
Considering your mother's hobby will allow you to get a gift that is useful. You could get a gift card to a hobby or craft shop. You could also buy new supplies for her hobby like yarn, needles, fabric and paint. If she likes playing cards, consider getting her a new deck of artistic cards.
