We ♥ Mum! She’s the greatest, so is Nan. They put fun band aids over our scrapes and cuts, held our hand at the doctors and explained a hundred times why we couldn’t ask uncle Tom for money. Thinking back on all that she’s done makes Mother’s Day the perfect occasion to say thank you to the world’s greatest Mum.
Greeting cards – What could be more touching on Mother’s Day than a set of cards that feature a favourite photo of the kids? If they’re old enough, get the kids to join in with designing the card, since the process is so easy that even a young child could grasp it. If you’re older with a family of your own, then why not make a card featuring your own kids for a doting grandmother?
Canvas prints – Using your own photographs to create canvas prints means it’s possible to give a genuinely original work of art at a fraction of the cost that might be expected. Not only does this mean that the art you create is affordable, but that it is also deeply personal and touching, allowing you to choose an image that you know will be close to her heart.
Photo books – Creating your own personalised books makes it possible to collect a lifetimes worth of memories together and turn them into a lavishly produced and deeply personal memoir. From the moment they were born, every part of your child’s life will have been captured by the proud parents, and now you can bring together all of these moments, and even include text ‘written’ by the kids themselves, telling Mum exactly how much she means to them.
Photo calendars – Virtually every home in the country has a photo calendar on the wall in one room or another, and though it may be very useful, chances are, it’s also not particularly attractive and is, at best, highly impersonal. This is a perfect excuse to create a calendar which, as well as serving a purpose, will gladden the heart of any Mum each time she looks at it. Choose a selection of your favourite family photographs ready to upload. Personalise other aspects, such as having the dates of the kids birthdays printed on it and even, if you like, designing a calendar which actually starts in March. There isn’t a Mum or Nan in the world who wouldn’t find a calendar like this deeply touching.
