Mother's Day seems to sneak up on me each year. It seems we go from the rainy weather of April to suddenly time to plan a way to celebrate mom in the first couple weeks of May. Don't be caught off guard this year without a gift. We know your mom probably already has everything she wants, so how about an experience she will remember this time?!
Best Mother's Day Gift: Family Pictures
There is no better gift for the mom in your life than family photos. She has given so much to her family and this is a chance for her to have something special to show off one of the things that makes her most proud - her kids or grandkids. She probably has enough "stuff" or would prefer to pick out her own things, but family photos are something extra special that she can't find at Target. So plan a date, book a session (or a gift certificate so she can pick the date), and make this gift a home run.
Best Mother's Day Gift for Grandmothers
Let's be honest, is there anything Grandma likes better than her grandchildren? Probably not! A photo session of your kids can create some great artwork for your mother. You could create an album or a canvas collage print for her walls. Even better - include her in the session! We have spent many weekend mornings with extended families spoiling grandmother with large group photos as well as smaller groups such as the cousins together or all the kids with the grandparents. These rare moments where everyone are together make the best kind of gift you could ever give. Even better? Spoil her with prints for her walls to remember this amazing day. And, of course, head to breakfast or brunch as a family afterward!
Best Mother's Day Gift for Your Wife
This is an absolute WIN for your wife! Instead of stressing over the perfect necklace or buying flowers that won't make it through next weekend, give her something that will last forever. Family photos will be cherished for a lifetime and you can build on that gift by creating coffee mugs, wall art, or albums later for her birthday. You both know your kids are growing way too fast and the only way to freeze time is with a picture. Make her day by scheduling this special event and agreeing to happily participate : )
