What are a few good sites to buy Christmas gifts for my mom?

Asked by chad (694 points ) December 3rd, 2007

I have an American Express gift card for $50 that I’ve been holding off on using, for a Christmas gift for my mom for the past year. However, now I can’t really find anything that is useful / neat / or anything like that. Please help!

I did a bunch of shopping at http://www.etsy.com/

It is mostly neat homemade stuff.

Harry and David always has great products and it’s alot safer than rolling the dice on clothes or any other gift. Everybody loves great food.

Ask your mom :-) Harry and David is great; but there is shipping and handling and perhaps you live near a sustainable source of delectable comestibles.

What’s your Mom’s age range, and what are her interests? I’ve got a lot of sites to suggest.

I just got this as a fun stocking stuffer for mine:

Everyone I know is getting reusable bags for Christmas, including my mom! They are hip and eco-friendly; there are a bunch here: www.reusablebags.com. Also, I’m recommending Heifer International (www.heifer.org) to friends who don’t know what to get for folks. Give a goat, bees, or llamas to folks in need! What mom could resist that?

We gave half a llama in honor of my mother one year since llamas are costly. She was allowed ( within the family confines) to choose which half of the animal would be her gift. We all also use cloth bags for everything. Just buy dark colours; we started out w. white or neutral and they got dirty quickly.

@blueberry; great ideas

giftybox.com is one of my faves for gifts you can put in age range and life style then they come up with a customized list of gifts that would be suitable. My wife got me a customs made shirt. They have cool ideas.
