Ok ladies, today is a must read because I’m sharing the most thoughtful gift ideas you can give this Mother’s Day. Picking up a gift for someone you love is easy but finding a gift that is meaningful can be more challenging, taking more time and effort. Lucky for you, I’ve found the perfect solution that combines thoughtful gifting with ease.
I have always loved Mother’s Day because I feel my greatest role in life is being a Mother to my two beautiful children and two of the most influential people in my life have been my mom and grandma. Being a mother pushes me to be better every day and has become my hardest yet most fulfilling and joyful calling. At times my patience is tested (well, a lot of the time;)) but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I negotiate with brands, factories, fabric mills, wholesalers and toddlers all day every day. Let me just say that among all those negations, toddlers are by far the toughest to strike a deal with ;). Being a mama is no joke and we deserve a day to be celebrated.
Today I’m excited to share some thoughtful gift ideas with Shutterfly. These gifts are easy to create and order right from home and each of them can be personalized. They say a picture says a thousand words, and I couldn’t agree more!! Above are a few of the items I choose from their site, however, they have an endless amount of options!! I know my mom, mother-in-law and grandmas will cherish these gifts and it’s something they can enjoy every day. Oh, I also chose something for our new home as well, a Mother’s Day gift to myself with my cute little family on it!
Canvas Prints: I decided to order two of the same picture printed on a canvas for my mom and mother-in-law to display somewhere in their homes. I used a photo of my kids that show their little unique personalities and as usual, Dasher boy loves to pose for photos too. I’m such a fan of canvases because of the quality and how they look hung on the wall. I personally prefer to have them unframed, but any canvas looks amazing.
Glass Prints: In my mom’s home, she has a cute built-in desk in the mudroom where she spends hours during the week preparing for her Sunday lessons (she’s the young women leader in our church). I thought it would be the perfect accessory to add to her desk, it’s pretty and sentimental. I love how it’s different than any other ordinary picture frame!
Picture Pillow: I got my mom a pillow with images of her daughters and grand-children on it. She actually started crying when I showed it to her and she did get ahold of it before Mother’s Day while I was shooting this post. It sits on the chair in her entry way and it’s the first thing people see when they walk into her home. How cool is it that you can print photos on a pillow?!
Garden Stone: Lastly, I personalized this fun Garden Stone for our new home that we are in the process of building right now. I know it’s not the first gift you’d think to give for Mother’s Day, but I think it’s a great option for someone who loves being outside and enjoys gardening. I would love to start my own garden once we are in our new home, so I’m hoping this stone will inspire me!! I ordered one for both of my grandmas too because they both love to garden.
Shutterfly made it so easy to make such sentimental gifts for Mother’s Day and I can’t wait to give the rest of the gifts away to my mom and mother-in-law. What are some thoughtful gifts you’re giving to your mom’s this Mother’s Day?
