What to buy a fifty year old???

Hi all, hope you are all OK.
Today I thought I'd talk about 'What to buy your fifty ish year old Mum'
Have you ever wondered what to buy someone who's fifty for a present?  Here's some ideas from a 50 ish year old of what I'd like to have.
Firstly It's lovely to get a beautiful card especially with lovely heartfelt written words.
Flowers are always going to be a wonderful gift for any lady.  They don't have to be a huge bunch of roses or mixed flowers, a single stem with a ribbon is just as meaningful. Along with the flower theme, a gift voucher for a garden centre is a fab idea for some.

Now there's the usual presents that are always gratefully accepted, jewellery (earring, watches, necklace, bracelets and the like) you can never go wrong with any of these gifts.

This selection may be a little more difficult as choosing a specific item is very personal unless you've been dropped great big hints or you know the person very well.  Scarfs, handbags, perfume, make -up or clothes, but as I always say keep the receipt in case it needs to be exchanged or returned.

Weekend breaks away, holidays, pamper days or watching a show are always great options, and some you might be able to go too...winner to both of you!

However above all of these wonderful ideas the most important presents that women, especially Mums, want is spending time together.  Yes take them for coffee and cakes, go for a walk, treat them to lunch or just a plain visit for a cup of tea!
I was racking my brains what to buy my mum for Mothers Day a couple of years ago, my mum who has everything and if not she buys it herself.  Eventually I realised she just wanted to spend time with me, so I surprised her in church at the Mothers Day service and boy was she pleased, and so I was pleased, that cost me nothing and meant everything to her. I might add she did come to ours for dinner and I had a little gift for her too! (obviously my mum is a different age, but you get the jist).

So don't fret and worry about gifts for us, any of the above are gratefully accepted. Have you got any other ideas to add to What to buy a Fifty ish year old???  would love to hear..x

My OOTD is standard wear for me Jeans from Primark, Matalan stripy T shirt, H & M Jacquard -weave Jacket, Next Pumps and Primark faithful scarf. Going with pattern on stripes today, what do you think?  Hope my blog has inspired you for present buying...See you tomorrow. X
