I am completely at a loss for finding a mother's day present. Will you help me? Sorry if these have been posted a lot, but I need help! She doesn't like any traditional mom gifts for the most part. Some facts:

- Doesn't wear makeup, thinks jewelry and nice clothes are dumb and a waste of money. Shops at thrift stores.
- Doesn't cook, doesn't like "gourmet" anything (like fancy coffee, tea, chocolate, etc., does her shopping at Winco/Costco and gets indignant when people spend too much on food/groceries).
- Likes tools. My dad always gets her some sort of tool she has requested, but it's really hard to think of anything she doesn't have. Not really interested in getting a gift certificate.
- Literally does not read anything except the paper (now she mostly gets her news online/on her phone). Hates books (yup).
- Hobbies include: Fixing up houses, landscaping (not gardening, though and not that into it except to fix up a house), building stuff.
- Does not like to leave home/the suburbs. Voluntarily stays home while the rest of the family takes vacations.
- Likes board games but literally every present I ever give her is a board game.
- Not into gadgets unless a practical tool.
- Likes music/TV/movies, but already has access to most everything she wants. As a last resort my present will be to figure out how to hook up her computer to the TV so she can watch the new seasons of Downton Abbey and Bomb Girls, but I was gonna do that anyway.
- Likes hanging out with family and generally a very positive person.
- Wealthy. I.e. buys everything she needs/wants, but resents spending money unnecessarily.

How can you possibly buy a present for someone who doesn't want things and has everything?! I am too untalented and late to make anything :( Maybe my present will be "I tried but I decided not to burden you with useless crap, you're welcome."
