The Activist Mom
She's always saying that kindness makes the world go round. Let her know that her lessons sunk in with a set of Boom Boom Cards, a deck of 26 cards, each of which suggests a simple act of random goodness, like smiling at a stranger or sending a handwritten letter. The beauty of the cards, though, is that they enforce mom's messagethe good acts keep on giving since the doer passes the card on, and then tracks the spread of good deeds through an online database. It doesn't get more "gift that keeps on giving" than this (boomboomcards.com, $9.99).
Get Bonus Points: Write her a handwritten letter of your own, telling her how much her example has inspired you. Then suggest that you split the cards; it'll be a reason to talk more often as you track the good-deed-doing.
