Make a Photo Collage
Sure, it sounds a little too easy, but you’d be surprised at how simple this last minute Mother’s Day gift is. Creating a memory-filled collage on any photo app is a snap. Simpy download any photo framing or collage app and choose your desired photos. Once you’re finished, send it to a local photo processing center via email or through their online service. Some even have options to slap your quick masterpiece on a mug, mouse pad, blanket, etc. If you have the time, opt for making a printed photo book as a nice coffee table staple any mom would enjoy.
DIY Groupon Book
Most are familiar with the last minute idea of
“coupon books”, but this spiced-up alternative can prove to be pretty substantial. Groupon and other similar apps provide a large variety of both marked-down goods and discounted events. Hand-selecting offers that your Mom would enjoy not only saves money, but gives the gift of spending time together and creating memories. #aww
Create A Gift Basket
It’s time to put those Target shopping skills to the test. This gift idea is basically creating a gift basket from scratch. Starting with a gift bag or perhaps a nice tote bag, simply fill it with an assortment of your Mom’s favorite stuff. It can be small items like her favorite candy or hair product or larger ticket items like the latest season of her top show on Blu ray.
They’ve been clogging your Facebook and Instagram feeds, but it’s the exciting gift that keeps on giving: box subscriptions. You name it, there’s most likely a monthly service for it. Not only will your mom enjoy the excitement of receiving a nice gift box every few weeks, but she’ll also be able to experience customized treats and services throughout the year. From food and wine to books and pet treats, these monthly surprises can be as low as $10 a month.
