Mother’s Day is less than a month away (May 12, if you need a reminder!), and if you are looking to do something extra special for Mom this year, it’s time to start planning.
Not only did Mom raise you, but she probably acted – or is currently – as head wedding coordinator for your special day, assisting with everything from addressing envelopes to helping with table seating. Take this Mother’s Day to share your gratitude with a gift that lets Mom know how much you appreciate everything she does.
1. Make an album she’ll cherish forever
She may have seen your wedding photos already, but pulling the very best images into one beautiful parents’ album will create a brag book Mom can share with her friends. Try to choose photos that will speak to her – a shot of her dancing, your father’s speech, or the cutting of the cake are all great memories.
2. Create a daily reminder of your love
A family photo from your wedding day is the perfect shot to put on a photo mug. If you live far away, this gift is a daily reminder of your love as your mother sips her morning tea.
3. Give a gift as unique as your bond
A photo gift makes a stunning present for Mom to display in her home. Family shots, or a photo of you and your mother, are the best to display here.
4. A special space for everyday notes
If your mother is a listmaker, help keep her to-dos extra sweet with a custom notepad. Pick a style that fits her, and match a photo from your wedding (a shot of the two of you would be extra sweet).
5. DIY a photo project
Roll up your sleeves and spend a Saturday creating these one of a kind photo vases. With just a few supplies, this simple DIY craft makes a big statement. For an extra bonus, fill them with Mom’s favorite blooms.
6. Pamper Mom with her favorite treats
For a special gift, fill a basket with luxurious treats that all have one purpose – to help Mom relax. Bath salts, candles, perfumes, and lotions are perfect for this. You can even add in an extra soft towel or robe. And we don’t think Mom would mind if you slipped in a bar or two of specialty chocolates!
