We’ve compiled a list of meaningful Mother’s Day gifts that will make Mom feel loved and cherished, well after the holiday comes to an end; And it doesn’t hurt that they can all be created for less than $100!

From heartfelt letters to personalized décor, browse our list and find the perfect gift for the special person you call Mom.

An Adventures with Mom Layflat Photo Book

Every day with mom is special, an Adventures with Mom layflat photo book is a beautiful and powerful way to incorporate your most heartfelt times with mom into a truly unforgettable gift.

In an Adventures with Mom layflat photo book, you’re able to blend text and insight with photos you treasure.  We recommend arranging your book with images on one page and a letter on the page opposite.  This way you’re able to complement your letters with relevant photographs while maintaining plenty of space to share your words in an elegant, neat fashion.

You can create a 20-page fabric hardcover photo book for $69.99.

A Set of Mini Acrylic Blocks

A set of mini acrylic photo blocks is the perfect way to aesthetically place happy little memories all around Mom’s home.  Either gift your mini blocks all at once or make the joy of your gift last for weeks by placing the blocks secretly around the house.

Tip: Make Mom feel even more special by placing little notes alongside each of your mini blocks.  Use them as a paper weight, slide your note underneath, and wait for Mom to stumble across this little love-filled gem!

Our mini acrylic blocks cost $11.99 each. Create up to eight for under $100.

A Custom Canvas Print of Her Favorite Art

If your mom is a fan of a particular artist, gift her a large canvas print of one of their works!  This gift will not only fill Mom with joy – as great art always does – but will also show her how well you listen to her interests and passions.

The public domain is home to thousands of incredible artworks, free to download and print as you wish!  We’ve highlighted the work of renowned artists Vincent van Gogh and Oscar-Claude Monet, but you can find even more artists on The Public Domain Review and RawPixel’s Public Domain Collection.

Hang-Free Prints for Mom’s Workspace

Ordering hang-free prints for Mom’s workspace is a thoughtful way to make sure her happiest memories accompany her everywhere she goes.  Acrylic photo blocks are one of our favorite ways to gift stand-on-their-own photos. Chic and shimmering, they’re fit to add elegance to any space. Our metal prints can also be printed with built-in easels for easy placement on desks or shelves.

When in doubt, stick to the classics! Our classic photo prints can be displayed in standing frames, placed in stylized photo stands, or propped up on shelves.

A Things I Learned from Mom Photo Book

One of the ways to honor your mom is by compiling all of the lessons you’ve learned from her into one book.  Begin by listing all of the things Mom has taught you over the years – from how to ride a bike to how to be a compassionate listener. Find pictures from your childhood that relate to each lesson – either directly or loosely – and arrange the lesson and the photo on the pages opposite each other.  It’s a visual and meaningful way to truly show Mom the way she has shaped your life for the better.

You can create a 20-page hardcover photo book for $74.99.

A Photo Book of Long-Lost Memories

If your mom grew up during the age of film photography and disposable cameras, consider putting together a photo book of childhood memories for her!  Find any boxes she has of old photos and scan them onto your computer.  Then simply arrange the photos onto the pages of a photo book.  Your mom will love being able to flip through memories that had been long buried in overflowing boxes.

Note: Many smart phones have scanning capabilities, so see what you can do with your phone if you don’t have a scanner at your disposal!

Functional Kitchen Acrylic Blocks

With kitchen space often at a premium, any kitchen décor you gift to Mom should be fabulous, functional, or better yet: both.  Functional kitchen acrylics are helpful, aesthetic, and original; They’re sure to catch the attention and compliments of all of your mom’s guests!  Think of what the most helpful information for Mom would be – whether that be the ingredients of her favorite recipe, a measurement conversion chart, or a collection of QR codes to the blogs of her favorite cooking personalities – then print it on a sleek and gorgeous acrylic block!

You can create one 5x7in acrylic block for $61.99.

A Mini Book of Cocktail Recipes
