    My Mum's birthday is coming up and I have no idea what to get her! She's in her mid 50s so it has to be age appropriate. Last year I made her a photo album full of pictures of her and I, so I don't want to do anything similar to that this year, but I still want it to be special. My budget is around £20. Any help appreciated! x

    It depends what her interests are... I'd suggest a nice, fancy bunch of flowers that includes her favourite kinds (if that's the sort of thing she likes of course). Can't go wrong with flowers :P

    I'm pretty poor at coming up with imaginative birthday present ideas.

    If there's some specific (cheap-ish) interest you're both interested in and might have fun doing together, then it might be nice to use the money to do that hobby...
