Everyone loves a good gift question, right?

Mother's Day is around the corner and I want to get something nice for my mom. The problem? She has most everything she knows she could want, and unless I threaten horrible gifts she won't give me any suggestions. So I could use help in thinking of something nice for this Mother's Day. Details about the mother in question are inside.

My mom is retired and lives in Savannah, GA. She likes gardening (and has a decent plot at the community garden), golfing (which she does frequently living on a golf course now), and traveling (which they do frequently to all sorts of worldly places). She is also a fan of sweets and fruit, but isn't a big flower person, and I'd like to get her something a little more interesting than old fall backs. She's not a big jewelry person, though she will occasionally wear something small and simple. She also volunteers at the local library and is part of a walking group and has a kayak for some basic sea kayaking (though this she just picked up at the end of last summer and hasn't done much). They are currently in the middle of a kitchen remodel that means they haven't had a kitchen in awhile and won't have one for another chunk of time, in case that helps with ideas. In general, I'd like to keep it under $50, but if it is really awesome I may splurge. So yeah, there's a lot to work with, but she has most everything she needs to do what she likes to do, and isn't a big collector of things, so I am routinely stumped. Help me change that this year! (any ideas I don't use for Mother's Day I can use for her birthday soon too, so hit me with everything!)
