5 Print Alternatives to Mother's Day Cards

May 4, 2015

Greeting cards are among the most popular Mother’s Day gifts, and for good reason: they help people express their love and appreciation for their mothers in a succinct, yet meaningful, way. Sometimes, however, you might want to give your mother something different, something that shows her how special she is to you. With that in mind, the following lists five print alternatives to Mother’s Day cards.

1. Calendars

Print custom calendars with special photos for each month: grandkids, your parents’ wedding photo, special memories from the past, or a large family portrait. Calendars let you give your mom a gift that she’ll be proud to display all year long. 000626

2. Magnets

Print a photo of the grandkids on a magnet your mom can hang on her refrigerator. Quality magnets will last decades, giving your mom a reason to smile every time she opens the fridge door. 000624

3. Memo pads

Does your mom like to jot notes with pen and paper? You can print custom memo pads with her name on them or a phrase such as “World’s Greatest Mom” or “World’s Greatest Grandma.” Now, everyone will know why your mom is so special when she leaves them a note! You can also print full stationery kits, including envelopes, address labels, and letterhead, all bearing your custom message for mom. 000625

4. Custom wine bottle labels

If your mom enjoys a good bottle of wine, you can buy the bottle and replace the label with a custom-printed version of your own. You can name the wine after your mom and create a fun design that includes her photo or family photos. Or, buy a whole case of wine and label the bottles so she can enjoy a few glasses and keep a bottle or two back as a keepsake. 000628

5. Coasters

Help keep rings from forming on your mom’s good furniture with custom coaster printing. You can print coasters featuring any mom-themed design you want: fun sayings such as “Grandma’s Kitchen” and family photos are two great ideas. 000627 If you want to skip the greeting card or if you want to give a great gift in addition to a greeting card, you can’t go wrong with these five Mother’s Day alternatives.
