My mother is hard to buy for. After seven children, she's more than had her fill of chocolates and knick knacks. And she has pretty much anything she could ever need or want. But I still wanted to give her a token, something to say I love her and I respect all the work she's done over the years.

I took some old Scrabble tiles and some promotional magnets that came in my letter box and combined them with a tube of superglue to get the above results

Mother's Day is Sunday, so if your mother is a Scrabble fan too, perhaps this would make a good simple gift?
