Whether you refer to her as “Mum,” “Honey,” “Grandma,” or otherwise, Mother’s Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate Moms everywhere.
Want to give Mom a special day she’ll always remember? Check out these Mother’s Day ideas from Costco Photo Centre for gifts and activities that will show your mom how thankful you are.
1. A Real Family Portrait
Mom (or Grandma) is often the one asking everyone to cozy up for a photo at birthdays or special occasions. But how often do these last-minute photo-ops turn out as well as she’d hope?
For a Mother’s Day gift she’ll truly appreciate, plan a real family photo shoot. Get in touch with a local photographer, or hire a friend who’s good with their camera, and coordinate the time, place and dress code. Turn the best shot into a stunning family portrait as a canvas print. Mom will cherish the finished product, and the effort behind it.
2. An Outing She’ll Appreciate
Want to treat Mom to a unique Mother’s Day activity? There are plenty of opportunities out there, find one that suits her interests.
- Visit a new park for a scenic stroll
- Plan brunch at a restaurant on her must-try list
- Arrange a mother-daughter manicure
- Go shopping at the greenhouse and spruce up the garden together
- Check venue listings for art or music shows she’d like
Don’t forget to snap a few pics along the way!
3. A Gift that Makes Every Day Brighter
Mom is known for putting others before herself. Return the favour with a Mother’s Day photo gift she can enjoy every day. For a simple yet practical present, create a custom travel mug with a cute family photo that Mom can take with her everywhere as a constant reminder of her loving family.
4. A Mom-Only Mug
Particularly if she has young children, Moms don’t tend to have many belongings that are entirely their own. Kids like to touch, try, taste and share what Mom has – so think about a gift for Mom that will be hers, and hers alone. Create a photo mug in her favourite colour with pictures that she loves. Mornings will be a little sweeter with her mug in hand, knowing that it was created with love.
5. A Kind Gesture
If you prefer, you can absolutely keep it simple. Create a sweet Mother’s Day card and show her you care with your helpful actions around the house. Take over the cooking and cleaning – and truly put effort into it – to let her relax.
That’s another reason Moms are great: no matter what you do, she’ll be thankful.
