When selecting great gift ideas for your girlfriend's mom, take into account her likes and dislikes. This prevents you from giving her a gift she may not ever use. If you wish to impress your girlfriend and her mother when you present your gift, spend some time doing your homework -- for example, find out her favorite bands, her favorite chocolate and her favorite author.

Pamper your girlfriend's mother with a day to the spa. If your girlfriend and her mother do not spend a large amount of time together because of a busy lifestyle, treat her mother to a day at the spa with her daughter. You need to purchase a spa day for two. This gift idea allows mother and daughter to spend a day together being pampered, talking and eating.

Present your girlfriend's mother with a collection of books by her favorite author and hot cocoa or tea to sip on while she reads. When selecting the books, find out what books she currently owns, as this will keep you from purchasing her a book she already has.
