    Default suggestions for a mother's day gift

    Anyone have suggestions for a mother's day gift that is unique and costs less than $300?

    What are other people buying for their siginificant others?

    Thanks.

    Flowers are the best for me.

    Stu! A lovely pair of Newton Running Shoes and a dinner date with an awesome ultra cyclist sounds great to me!

    My Mom is a Marlboro Red/Folger's crystals kind of gal, moving into 2 liter bottles of Pepsi as the day goes on.
    She always asks for bathrobes, as that's what she wears all day. - Garro.

    For my wife...just dinner, just the two of us, scores major points.

    For my Mom...working in her yard/garden.

    For something a little different...check out David Gerstein. He has some really cool, happy pieces that are small and do not cost a fortune (under $300).

    Just tell her, "You're not my mother, not my problem." My wife doesn't find that as funny as I do.

    This. My Mom gets hanging baskets for her front porch and cocktails and a nice supper. Our children take care of their Mom.

    Thanks some really cool stuff. FYI, my wife is spoiled, as I serve her breakfast in bed every Sunday and usually buy her flowers on a periodic basis.

    I usually get my wife items from an annual art fair that hits town a week before the Kentucky Derby along with dinner. I like handmade bikes and suits, she really likes handmade artisan jewelry and such.
