Don't know what to buy for your mom as a gift? Start by looking at the appropriate era. Lots of people tend to stay in their favorite era as they grow up. What time period does your mom like most? For an idea, look at her clothes, furniture, ornaments, color schemes, etc. Pick items that reflect that time period. For example, if she reflects the era of the 1940's, go to an antique store and look at 1940's brooches. Picture frames, both new and old, are easy to attach to an era.
