Any present ideas for a woman turning 60?

Looking for gift ideas for my mom's 60th birthday. She likes U of M (but is overloaded there), gardening and conservation, travel, and men's choirs (but may be overloaded there, too).

My mom is a very driven type of woman with a wide social circle. She likes to be involved in a lot of activities (church is a big one). She's a huge gardener and was thinking of doing some conservation landscaping this fall.
She's also huge into the University of Michigan and men's choirs, especially the University of Michigan's men's choir, but my dad said she's about topped out there in the presents department.
She's a fan of traveling as well, but I'm afraid I can't provide much in that area since I don't really have money to fund any cool trips.
With these incredibly vague categories, can someone suggest good presents? Alternatively, maybe books or inspirational-type stuff aimed towards the older, still very active woman?
Budget on my part is pretty darn limited. Extremely darn limited.
(We've never been too close which is why I'm at such a loss here, but I still want to acknowledge this big milestone.)
