A great 50th birthday gift for a mom could be a scrapbook filled with memories that involve her children and family. A vacation would also make a wonderful birthday gift for a mom who loves to travel.
Filling the scrapbook with pictures of adult children as babies, along with pictures of grandchildren, makes a gift that a mother will cherish. A vacation that includes trips to the spa and sightseeing may also make an ideal birthday gift, since the trip is a chance to make new memories. An extravagant lunch or dinner that features a variety of desserts can also be a memorable treat to celebrate a mom's 50th birthday.
