Here’s some of my top photo book ideas for Mother’s Day 2015! Plus be sure to check out my exclusive photo book deals below!
#1. Baby Book for New Moms
The first Mother’s Day for a new mother is a very special one. How about a cute baby book or putting together some of those newborn photos? Dads you cannot go wrong with this one!
#2. Family Cookbook
Get those cherished family recipes down on paper! Mom (and everyone) would love to have those dishes in print.
#3. Family History
Family history books can focus on mom’s story – her childhood, school days, marriage and children, or you can go higher up the tree and start with mom’s parents or grandparents. I’m working on a family history section in my son’s baby book right now so I like looking at these for inspiration.
#4. Pick An Event
Don’t let your hesitation of going through a mass of photos discourage you from making a book. Try focusing on a single event and choose photos from that smaller subset for an easier task. Easter, Spring Break, family reunion, family vacation or kids’ art are possible topics. These themes are more photo focused and let the pictures tell the story.
#5. Year in Review
2014 is worth remembering! Pick some of the highlights from each month and put them in a book. These themes are really good at guiding you and giving you prompts for your layouts.
#6. It’s All About the Grandkids
If your mom is a grandmother, you know that nothing would make her happier than a photo book full of photos of the grandkids.
#7. Mother’s Day Themes
There are specific Mother’s Day themed books available. Many feature appropriate quotes about mom and offer mom-themed clip art.
Other Custom Gift Ideas for Mom
There are other customized gift options you can make for Mom!
Calendars are a big favorite in my family, and nowadays since you can start your calendar on any month you choose, they can be given year round. You’ll usually find some great deals on calendars this time of year too, so that can be an added bonus.
Canvas prints also make for an awesome gift. If you’re finding time is tight, making a single canvas is quicker to make than a book and with all the canvas deals out there, you’re bound to find a deal. Check out all the canvas groupon deals here!
Custom pillows can also make for a unique gift. Perhaps a collage of the grandkids, a photo of Fido or a her monogram may be just right for mom.
Custom Stationery is a chic option. Because so much of our communication is online now, the written letter or note stands out. Give mom her own personalized set.
