Shopping in Aspen

I'm on a ski trip in Aspen for the week, a vacation that my mom helped fund. What's a gift within the $50 range that I can bring home to show my appreciation?

I'm planning a jaunt around the towns in the valley sometime within the next week.

What does your mom like?

Have someone take a photo of you in front of Maroon Bells and have it framed.

I like netbros suggestion of a framed picture for three reasons:

1) It's a lot cooler and more likely to make a lasting appearance in your mom's home than some little trinket.

2) Everything in Aspen is ridiculously expensive. Just to get close enough to the Maroon Bells for a great picture, you have to pay over $20 for a shuttle, IIRC.
