3. Concert Tickets

If there is a concert, ballet, play, or what have you, that you know your mom has been dying to see, grab some tickets! You can set her up to go out with her girlfriends, her husband, the whole family, or again, it can be a fantastic mother/daughter activity. Just try to feel her out and figure out what she wants to see. Feel out everyone else too, so you know who else is interested in going. In other words, if your dad hates the ballet, don't plan on him agreeing to attend.
