What type of birthday gift will you give an 85 year old mother you've never been really close to?


I have never really been close to my mother, and we have been mostly estranged.However, we kind of made up again recently. It's her birthday and I don't know what to give her.

    You are so right Jasmeet. Material things don't really appeal to the 80+ The collage of photographs, or in an album perhaps. Good idea. Thanks a bunch.

    Thank you for your response John. But it's the forgiveness thing that's so hard. So hard....

    Thank you Peachy. She can't stay long on her feet though, so shopping is out.

    I like the idea of the family gathering. This way, i don't have to be stuck one-on-one with her. Not much to say to each other really.
