Do you think she would like a camera? She could take LOTS of pics of those she loves best!

Whatever you do - DO NOT give her something practical or for the house - give her something she would want but not get for herself - Does not have to be something you buy - maybe a weekend away for just the two of you... or doing something that she enjoys and would appreciate you doing just for her!! I am sure whatever you do will be right because you are trying to do something special that means something to her.

A nice piece of jewelry, flowers and a good box of chocolates and a sappy card would be nice too. Sometimes it is nice to be on the receiving end of girly things, even if you are no longer a girl.

Thanks for the ideas everyone. These are all very good. At the moment I am looking at a Spa nearby for her to go to.

The 'pampered' day at a spa is wonderful idea. Or a weekend at a B&B.
