How to choose the best Christmas presents for Mum

The key thing to remember when picking a present for your Mum is that she will not care how much money you've spent, she'll only care about how much thought you've put into it.

This makes buying the perfect thing for your Mum both easy and hard at the same time. You don't have to spend $200 to make her smile, but you'll have to think harder than just getting her a gift card is you want to see her face light up.

Try thinking about gift ideas with sentimental value. Why not get the family together for a photo and have it framed? Or with sites like Vistaprint you could have photos printed on a calendar, mug, keyring and more. You could even book a session with a professional photographer to create high quality family shots she can keep forever.

Alternatively what are her favourite books, movies and hobbies? A collectors box set or movies or books could work if she has favourites. If she's a gardener, maybe some new tools would be perfect? If she's a glamorous type of lady, jewellery is always a beautiful gift.

If your Mum is one of those people who never gets much time to themselves, try getting her and manicure or spa voucher. Or even an experience gift for bridge climbing or sky diving if your mum is the adventurous type.

And if all else fails, just ask Dad if there's been anything she's been wanting or talking about recently. You'd be surprised how much Dad will be able to help you out.
