  1. So many great ideas are in here. I want to buy at least half of the list 😀 First I saw the funny shopping bag and I’m sure my mom will love it and it will definitely make her day. But it seems like just a shopping bag isn’t enough for a 50th birthday. I’m thinking of buying a necklace too, but these two on the list are so gorgeous that I can’t pick one.
