Gemma Castellarnu,

I just visted your website and am not interested in glueing letter shapes onto boards and spray painting tin cans for flower vases.

It's time to can the SPAM here. You are embarrassing yourself.

Try searching for "collectible stamps" and pick a topic she likes

There is a beautiful song called "Mama" available on amazon in CD. The package is a gorgeous rose and the singing is amazing. It's a musical bouquet! Search Travis Dow Mama.

Wasn't it Hillel who said (paraphrase) "If I be not be for me, who then will?" Check the reviews (not always reliable) and go with your knowledge of your mother. She can always resell it to Amazon for 32 cents. :)

The crystal brush is a terrific idea for a mom who has everything. Ask her, though, if she'd like a professional massage. Aaaaah.

I sure wish my mom was still alive. So I could spend some time with her and tell her I love her.

A mothers day gift she will love: Time with You. Tell her you love her. Crystal brushes and pillows and junk and stuff are nice, but she will always remember when you spent time instead of money. And so will you when she's gone.

Please offer a suggestion. My mother is 800 miles away in a nursing home. She has limited use of her left side due to a stroke and cannot see very well. Her mind is still sharp as a tack! Books are out becauase she cant see well, my father gets upset if I send flowers (Thats a waste of money). Plants she sends home to sit in the kitchen garden window (Father hates to take care of little plants) Anything of value she sends home with my father for safe keeping. I thought of a scarf but she rarely goes outside. She already has a wall frame of pictures of the whole family including my dogs. Any suggestions? I am a 49 year old man so home made crafts is probably not the answer.

What does she enjoy? Music? Books on tape? Maybe you can get her a small cd player with a pair of decent headphones and some music and audio books? Tell her that this is to keep and enjoy in the nursing home, have her name engraved on the cd player somehow.

Also, Jeff B., a Kindle has a font enlargement feature. How bad is her eyesight? Can she read larger print?

When my grandmother was in a nursing home gift giving was at first very hard. It became easier after a few visits as I watched her struggle every day.

I made her some bibs to use for meals as she ate in her bed and foods like fried chicken and Lasagna were difficult to eat in bed. I think I've seen adult custom bibs at I bought her some nice ear plugs as the noises from other rooms became unbearable. Books on CD were a hit. And I bought her a magnifying glass that was 8x 10 in size, so she could read magazines. My sister bought her a cute candy basket filled with goodies for her to give to guests. That was a difficult for her to not be able to offer a treat to small children anymore. We kept her basket more or less full.

My parents bought her a squirrel feeder that was (with permission) mounted on a tree outside. Grandma could see it from her bed, and other families filled it too. That turned out to be a hit. My parents also bought her a remote control fan so she could turn it off at night. And a beautiful sweater which was later stolen. Mark everything with her name on it even if you have to open the package to do it. You can buy large iron on patches in the sewing notions area of Walmart. We just made our own labels on things and ironed them on.

Even consider if the weather in your area permits, taking her to a park for a family picnic, or movie of the weather is inclimate. The gift does not have to be expensive, or crap. All it needs to be a memorable. A simple outing some place that she might like, the beach, park, camping, and a camera to record the memories for the family album, and many a mom would be happy.

Also take into account whether or now she does crafts. Scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting, etc. And get her something related that she can use for that... Yarn, scrapbook paper, perhaps new hooks or needles, or maybe she is finding it more difficult to see what she is working on, and find one of those wonderful magnifying glasses that you can either wear around your neck so it hangs at the right level to see, or is on a stand and can be readily maneuvered into place for those find stitches, or intricate lace, or detailed paint projects that she might find enjoyable as a pass time.

A million Thank you's! I have read all the responses and suggestions and I think the bibs are a great idea, but I am not sure how she will feel about gettting a gift like that, even though it is a needed thing. I like the idea of either a large print Kindle, or a CD player with books on tape. My father has a kindle so he can help her with it, and load things for her. The engraving idea is great! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! for all your suggestions!
