Extra special Mother's day

I have an amazing, incredible mother. Really, she's awesome. This will be the first mother's day that I have the fiscal resources to show her, rather than just tell her, how much I love her. I'll be getting her flowers, that much is sure. In addition to that, I'd like to do something meaningful. My (boring) idea was make a donation to a cause in her honor. But you have more creative, but still meaningful ideas, right? :)

The perfect slippers

Please help me find (online, or in a major Canadian store) some slippers that fit the following strict requirements: fluffy on the inside, thick comfy sole, and, most importantly, are closed around the heel without being a boot. It seems that everything I find that fits the first two requirements is clog-style, and that absolutely won't do. The closest I can find are moccasins, but the gift recipient doesn't like leather/fur. Any suggestions?

Finding gift certificates for places far away from me

My parents have retired, and are mere days away from closing the sale of the house I grew up in and traveling the country in an RV. Birthdays and holidays become somewhat of a gift-giving challenge. Their space is limited, so getting them things seems unwise. I'd like to get them gift certificates to restaurants or activities that I've never been to and that I can't really visit personally. Are there any tricks to find fun things that I can get gift certificates for? [more inside]

What to do when you have left someone shortly before an anniversary and birthday....?

Two weeks after my girlfriend treated me to the most thoughtfully-indulgent birthday weekend imaginable, I broke up with her. Just a week has passed since we went our separate ways, but that means two weeks until what would have been our three-year anniversary and three weeks until her birthday, upon which I would otherwise be reciprocating her generosity. Is there anything I can do or say or give to mark the occasion appropriately? [more inside]
