How do I find birthday presents for my mom?
Buying birthday presents for moms can really be tough. Many times, the response to questions like, "What would you like for your birthday?" is something similar to, "Oh, hon, I have everything I need. Why don't you save your money and get something for yourself?" Obviously, that isn't going to happen. So, how are you going to find the right gift for your mother?
- Be observant. Sneak a peek at her magazines to see if she's marked any pages that have things you could buy on them. See what catches her eye if you are window shopping and make a note of it.
- Take another look at her magazines to see if she has subscription labels on them. If she has quite a few issues of a magazine, but doesn't subscribe, you've got a gift idea you know she'll like right there.
- Recruit spies. Ask other people to listen for hints about what she needs or wants. Of course, they may not share the information with you if they are looking for a present idea, too.
- Ask some questions. Find out if there's anything she's always wanted to learn or do. Talk about what you'd do if you won a small cash prize and ask what she would do.
