My mom's birthday is on Halloween and I really want to do something special for her that is not Halloween themed.  when my brother and I were younger we would get so caught up in Halloween, that we would forget about her birthday and I still feel terrible about it.  I've just done the spa thing last year.  She doesn't really have time for much in her life right now since there are still 2 kids at home, so I don't know what her interests are. I need help!

Thanks for reading.

one year my mom was REALLY down for her birthday b/c it was right after she divorced my dad and I had no idea what to do for her. Then I remembered this book she used to always read us, Love You Forever by Robert Munsch - I'm sure you heard of it. Anyway, I picked up that book (or, if she used to have a favorite book to read to you when you were growing up, get that one) and made sort of a "mommy box" out of a box and some lace and paints and stuff. On the inside of the lid I cut out and pasted a ton of pictures of me & her together and that sort of thing, and put the book in the box along with a rose and some of her favorite incense & an incense burner, and some candles, and a few other neat little things that I can't remember. She cried when she opened it - it was so sweet! Anyway, she said she felt a lot better after that. Probably the best gift I've given her, even though it wasn't the most expensive

edit: oh yeah, and inside the book I wrote "Dear Mom, sorry for all those times I argued with you even though I really knew you were right all along." That made her laugh.

Thank you.  I can't really think of any books at the moment, but maybe i can do something similar.

well, if you haven't heard of/read the book I linked to, you should check it out. It's very sweet.
