DIY Mother’s Day GiftsTeuila Mau
Looking for a unique gift for Mom this Mother’s Day? Here are some ideas that you can create with your own digital talents.
Framed “Mom” Quotes – Grab your favorite Mom quote, add a border or background, print it out and then frame it. Go the extra mile and add a photo of you with your Mother.
Slideshow – This one is sure to please. Collect and scan a bunch of photos of your family throughout the years (or, just the two of you if you’d rather) and put them in a slideshow. If you live far away from your Mother, send her the video via YouTube or be oldschool and burn it on a CD.
Create a personalized card – Mothers love nothing more than knowing how much they mean to you and that you truly appreciate all of their hard work over the years. And, sometimes, a generic card from the local card shop just doesn’t cut it.
Printable Cards – If you’re short on time or not artistically inclined, you can find many printables online. And, best of all, they’re free!
Photo Restoration – Does your Mother have lots of old photos laying around in shoe boxes? Come on, you know she does. Make an impression on her heart by restoring her old photos.
Then & Now Photos – Now, this one’s FUN. Recreate an old childhood photo with your family. If you want it to be a surprise, choose a photo that does not include Mom.
Computer Wallpaper Collage – Make a collage of special photos you know your Mom will love—photos of you! Score some extra teary-eyed points by using old photos from your childhood. Or, even better, make a collage of the grandkids.
Website or Blog – Everyone needs a website and that includes Mom! Maybe it’s for her business, a personal blog or a family website she’d like to share with relatives. Either way, chances are… she’s mentioned it before.
