Happy Birthday Mom! In the spirit of frugality, I sent her a collection of gift cards worth about $50 that I was never going to use. Was it terribly thoughtful? No, not really. Was it frugal? Absolutely. She will certainly be able to use those cards and although there was a little part of me that felt guilty about re-gifting, the majority of me felt good that she got something that she was going to use and that I got rid of something of value that was just taking up space. Anyway, happy birthday!
