Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2017

Author: Libby - Printique by Adorama


“She kisses my boo-boos, she braids my hair. My mother is beyond compare. We love you mothers everywhere.” – Agnes from Despicable Me 2

We couldn’t agree more Agnes! Mother’s Day is around the corner and you probably want to give her something with a sentimental spin. We want to help you find easy-breezy to make personal gifts just for her. Here is a look at gift ideas designed to warm her heart. It’s our 2017 Mother’s Day Gift Guide.

1.Freeze Frame
Schedule a photo shoot for her. Moms are always behind the camera but are rarely in front. It’s not only important to document portraits but also playtime. It doesn’t have to be formal. Capture her in all her glory being herself. Playing on the floor with the mini-me’s, reading books, or even just making a meal. This is her everyday life and the love and energy she puts into her family should be captured and photographed. Also, if you are short on time and can’t hire a professional photographer, have a friend or relative snap some shots. It doesn’t need to be perfect, it doesn’t need to be over the top, it just needs to be done. Trust us, it’s a memory worth making.

2. Book It 
Now that you have all of these wonderful pictures of mom, it’s time to give them a home. Make it a little something special by putting it together in a photo book for her. You don’t have to overthink it though, keep it simple. We suggest making a fabric covered photo book with a color that will go well with the home. Here’s a great time saver tip when you’re laying out the photo book.  Let the images do all the talking.  Either span the entire spread with one photo or put one photo per page. It’s the easiest way to build a book and keep it customized.  You can also use our quick and easy book builder to do all of the work for you. We’ve got your back when it comes to making it easy!

3. Rustic Charm
“Woodn’t” it be great to give mom something as unique as her? Drum roll please…. announcing new, wood prints! Wait, what? That’s right, you may have noticed we just added a new element to our wall decor page. Images are infused into birch wood which allows the characteristics of the grain to show through the image. It’s the perfect gift with modern, rustic charm. Wood prints are currently available in 5 different sizes from the sweet 4×6 to the statement piece 16×24. No two wood prints are ever the same because of the different traits of the wood. It’s the perfect gift for the mom that warms the home with love and laughter.

4. Artistic Flair 
Is there a mini-Picasso in the family? Take that artwork and use it as a canvas to put a picture of mom and her tribe in the middle. In this example, we took a piece of child’s artwork and cropped in really tight and centered a photo on it. You can use any picture software editing program to make your image. Here we decided to make a metal 8×10 print. If you choose metal prints, make sure to choose the white finish to keep the skin tones intact.

5. Print it
Print those memories! Sometimes, moms are so busy they don’t have time to print. Do it for her and print those pictures. You can be unique and make some very creative photo gifts. Check out our mother’s day board on Pinterest for some clever ideas on print gifts.
