Mothers Day Idea: 7 ideas for a unique photo gift


Here are 7 ideas for a unique photo gift for your mom and grandmother. All of us have at one time or another purchased a last minute floral bouquet or taken mom out for a bite to eat, and although this is truly a wonderful way to tell mom we love her – some of us may be searching for a lasting gift that she will treasure forever. Afterall, mom has been our friend, chauffeur, cook and mentor.

What mother wouldn’t enjoy photos of her family? You probably have hundreds of digital images on your camera, Instagram, Facebook or your computer. If you don’t have any: take some now! Grab your smart phone or digital camera and just have fun with it – and don’t forget funny pictures are also a heartwarming gift. And always remember: If you are taking pictures of Mom or Grandma – make sure it’s a flattering photo!

To make the gift more personal, sign and date it on the back. So here are a few photography ideas to provide you with some inspiration:

Mothers Day Idea: Photography


Family Photos

family, friends, cottage and trips and holidays.
An 8” x 8” photo on canvas will fit almost anywhere in your house.
You can even place a canvas on a book shelf, mantle or even start mom on a new collection.




Cottage photos

Do you have a cottage? Then you probably have some great photos that captured  all the memories and experience of being out in mother nature (see how this is relevant already?). Photos of family, action shots on the lake or beach, pictures of the canoe or a kayak adventure!  Even a landscape photo of the cottage is enough to conjure up enough warm memories and nostalgia to make it a perfect mother’s day gift!

Children’s Paintings

When you feel completely uninspired,
or when you just feel like you’ve exhausted
all possible ideas – pull out one of your child’s
paintings and photograph it.
Nothing makes a parent more proud than
their own child’s creativity – why not preserve
their painting for a life time. What mother
doesn’t like to show off her budding artist’s talent?
With its texture and brilliance your canvas will
have people doubting it’s an original. ­­­­­
