    Wow, I'd be so stressed if I'd left it this late!
    I've got my Mum 2 pairs of PJs that she liked in La Senza, a bottle of perfume, a personalised chocoalte bar and a pair of windup dancing meerkats (that's a personal joke haha, don't ask!)
    I have to ask - where did you source the dancing meerkats from?!

    I'm currently living in China so I sent her a cheap and cheerful head massager off Amazon (she loves her head being massaged) and when I visit home mid January I'll be giving her a Chinese silk scarf and Stephen Fry's first autobiography as her proper present.

    The Wonders Of The Solar System presented by Professor Brian Cox DVD.

    I think she's more interested in Brian than the solar system, but she really enjoyed the series anyway, much more than I did.
    I was tempted to get the blu ray version, it was only 2 or 3 quid more, but seeing as at present the only blu ray player in the house is my ps3 it didn't seem practical.
