For this milestone birthday, consider getting your mom a thoughtful gift of an experience for her instead of a physical object.

8. Crafting Night

Try a fun craft night like wine and painting, pottery, or wooden sign making with your mom. You can go alone or take plenty of people with you for a party to celebrate the big day!
