    Default Ideas for 60th Birthday present

    I need some ideas for my MIL 60th birthday.

    She doesnt want photo canvases of the family.

    And she doesn't really do "things" like hot air balloon rides.

    So now I'm stumped.

    Keep them coming please!!

    I was thinking perhaps some nice earrings or something.

    She doesn't want photos, she doesn't want to do "anything" ie movies, musicals etc.

    This is why it is soooo hard.

    I got my mum a newspaper from the day she was born, it came in a nice leather folder. It was really interesting and something different for a woman who has everything.

    I ordered it online, sorry I can't remember which site. I'm sure I just googled " newspaper from the day you were born" and it came up. Good luck

    I would say a nice pair of earrings, or pendant?

    The newspaper idea is cool though!

    (We got our mum a DVD player, lol. She was a bit the same and generally doesn't really like the presents we give her I feel your pain!!)

    Does she like Port etc? For my dad's 60th, we gave him a small wooden keg that he has since put port in.
