Stocking Stuffers for Mums

Hi all its getting so close to Christmas! I was wondering if anyone has any good ideas for stocking stuffers for an adult.
Every Christmas I like to give my parents a main present, maybe a weekend away or something special... but I think its also nice that mum in particular, has a few little surprises to unwrap aswell. So far I have got her a nice singlet top to wear, I am just looking for more suggestions. Big or small. Stocking Filling type things.
What would you buy your mum?
Thanx in Advance! XO

Well, on the receiving end, I like to find things in my stocking like chocolate (who doesn't!), vouchers for the cinema, nail polish, book or book token, bath bombs, socks, the obligatory tangerine, CD, cuddly toy, smelly candles, miniature bottle of wine .......

You get the idea!!

How about some footie slippers.They may be called something different over there in the UK ,so here is a picture



They usually come in a thin,small box.

*Maybe a gift card to a day spa.

*Fingernail polish.

*Perfume.

*A mother's necklace with the birth stone of each child.

*If she is a grandma how about a grandma's brag book(a photo album for picture's of her grand children).

* Make your own mom's free day certificate's saying you'll come and clean house for mom, or wash her clothes or cook supper while she relaxes or goes out and enjoys herself.

*A book by her favorite author .

*A cd of relaxing music .

*A favorite dvd .

*A small aroma therapy candle or room spray.

*Pay to have her hair shampooed,cut and styled.

I guess it depends on what interests her. I like to get sock, undies, chocolate, perfume, nail polish, gloves, neat little kitchen gadgets, bath & body items, CDs.
