5 Great Tips For Stealing Your Mom's Heart On Mother's Day

Apr 18, 2008
On Mother's Day, the best gift you can give your mom is something with a lot of sentimental value. That's why flowers with warm, tender cards are so popular.

But who wants to give flowers every year? Certainly, they can have a place amongst all the gifts she'll get, but wouldn't it be great to give something really special ... something she'll remember and cherish forever?

Of course it would. That's the million-dollar question on Mother's Day! Well, here's the answer to that question. It's a gift that's sure to steal her heart on her special day - give your mom a beautiful photo gift that you create online.

Now, that doesn't mean you should just have your picture printed on a coffee cup, pillow case or throw blanket. No, those are great items for your home. On Mother's Day you have to work a bit harder, but if you use the right website, it will be really easy to show your mom how much you really care.

Find the right website. First, search the term "easy photo sharing" or "easy photo printing," using your favorite online search engine. Some of the best will come up near the top of the page. Select from one of those - but remember, you want this to be quick and easy.

Look for a site that lets you upload up to 300 photos all at once, and features a nice selection of Keepsakes to choose from. If the website feels like you just walked into a card store at the mall, you're probably in the wrong place and will become frustrated very quickly with all the products they're pushing and all the membership rules. Also, look for a website that let's you store as many photos as you like, with no membership requirements. Another tip is to look for a site that features easy one-step scanning, so you can easily scan in your older printed photos.

Once you've found the right website, then the fun part starts! Here are a few great gifts you can make mom:

Create a photo album. Your mom would so love to get a lovely photo album of special pictures. It doesn't really matter what it is - just as long as the photos feature members of her family and people dear to her. So let your imagination run wild. It could be a collection of photos of her growing up with her brothers and sisters ... or of you growing up with your brothers and sisters. It could be themed around a special vacation you took with your family, featuring her grandchildren. Or it could be centered around flowers she loves, a place she adores, or season special to her, like Christmas or summertime.

Create a calendar. This is a great way to remind mom how much you love her every single day. Just like photo albums, you can give your calendar a theme she'll appreciate. Or, you can just put a random selection of pictures if you're pressed for time. She'll love it nonetheless, because it will be something a lot more special than an ordinary calendar. And if you're wondering why you'd give a calendar in the middle of the year, don't worry. The wonderful thing about custom calendars is you can start in any month of the year! Just think when you hand her a calendar that runs from May to April, and you tell her that as far as you're concerned the year doesn't start until Mother's Day - that's sure to put a smile on her face.

Create a story book. This takes a little more work than a photo album, but the results are well worth it. A story book includes more written text than a photo album, and as many pictures as you'd like to use. The nice thing about a story book is that you can really tell the story behind each photo. So if you have a mom that likes to read and tell stories about her kids and grandkids (and what mom doesn't), a story book may be the perfect gift for her.

Give her greeting cards. This would be a truly special gift. You could give her a nice set of custom greeting cards personalized with her favorite photos. The photos could be of her favorite flowers, vacation spots, her kids and grandkids, pets, collectible items from around her home. Really, the kinds of cards you could give her are only limited by your imagination.

This Mother's Day, don't just send boring flowers. Instead, give her a gift she'll truly remember and appreciate for many years to come. Give her a lovely Keepsake photo gift that you create yourself on the Internet from cherished photos.
