Unique Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Are you looking for unique Mother's Day gift ideas that have a more personal touch than picked-over petunias at Wal-Mart? Get with family members to create a custom gift that your mom will love for years to come! All you need is a camera and maybe some photo editing software and your Mother's Day present will beat your siblings', hands-down. If you're not still trying to be Mom's favorite, then go in together for a great gift on the cheap!

Photo collage

Create a photo collage from your mom's favorite memories and print it as a poster to be framed or in a smaller gloss or matte sheet to be framed. Or, make your mom a star by designing a mock movie poster (think “Supermom”) for her wall. If you're in the tradition of taking large family photos, a large-format poster will do more justice to detail than an 8-inch by 10-inch photo.

Custom stationery

If your mom likes to handwrite letters or print them out to send, you can create custom stationery or notepads. Make sure your designs have a touch of your mom's flair and personality, and toss in some matching envelopes so she can announce her coolness to everyone along the way.

Calendar

Everyone loves a calendar. Your mother will love hers even more when each month has a photo of a favorite memory, friend or family member.

CD/DVD

Make a CD of Mom's favorite songs or a DVD from camcorder clips you've compiled with video editing software, and make it extra special by designing a custom sleeve so she can proudly display it on the shelf when she's not watching it on the TV.

Booklet

Commemorate your mom's life and family with a keepsake booklet. Your booklet will include favorite photos, stories as told by family members and friends, a biography, and family history. And, as with all of these Mother's Day ideas, you can print anything you'd like that you know Mom will love!
