What do you make/give for the mother of the guy you recently broke up with (mutual decision, sort of)? We dated for a looong time and I get on really well with his mother, so I want to recognise how much she means to me. (Or is that too weird?)

It would have to be something postable (mailable Grin), because she lives in the middle of nowhere and I can't get there easily.

Any ideas? I'd be grateful for absolutely any suggestions!

I wouldn't send her something for mother's day.  It might be a little weird since she'll never be related to you in any way.  Wait for her birthday to send her something.

I don't think that's weird at all if you're close! My older sister's dad was a real piece of work and very bad to my mother, but his mother and my mother are still on good terms. His mother even gave my mother a Christmas gift last year, and my sister is 31, so they've been separated nearly 30 years!

If you care about someone, you shouldn't have to feel bad about showing them that you care. I don't care what day it is. You have the right to send her a gift just because it's Tuesday if you want!

If it were me, I would at least send her a card or possibly some flowers. I'm not sure what kind of stuff she likes, but you could also get crafty and make her something small but nice. I think teacup candles are really neat if she's that type of person (wish my mom was b/c I would be set!) and I also think that just writing a personal note can be really meaningful.

I would just do something small (don't go overboard) just to let her know she's important to you.

Good luck!
