How do you say “thank you” to the woman who raised you (or is helping raise your kiddos) and always offers her unconditional love and support? With one or more of our unique Mother’s Day gift ideas! It’s time to show Mom how much you appreciate her, so we came up with five fantastic gift ideas she’s guaranteed to love. Each one of these thoughtful gifts comes from the heart and is sure to make every type of mom feel loved and celebrated!

Frame a Happy Memory

Whether it’s a cute baby pic, a snap from a favorite family vacation, or a vintage photo of grandma and grandpa, a custom-framed family photo makes a truly meaningful present. You’re giving the gift of a cherished memory and lovely home decor all in one! When choosing custom frame options, think about what the photo looks like and mom’s decor style so you can pick choices that complement both. Check out the timeless, handcrafted options at your nearest FastFrame store.

Hit Subscribe!

Subscriptions are the gift that keeps on giving—they’re a great way to remind mom of how much you love her all year long! Sign mom up for her favorite monthly magazine, or gift her a year of a calming meditation app. If she likes to be pampered, get her a skincare or beauty product subscription box. If she’s a foodie, go for an artisan snacks or cheese box, or a personalized monthly wine club. These days, there’s a subscription for almost everything, so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for mom!

Make Her a Member

Does mom love visiting your local botanic garden or art museum? Make her a member! A membership will encourage her to plan day trips and enjoy herself while supporting local, cherished institutions. Consider memberships to places you can visit as a family—such as the zoo if you have little ones or a national park pass for camping trips and outdoor adventures. (Just make sure to keep mom’s preferences first and foremost.) Experiences often make the best gifts, after all!

Give Handmade Art

Nothing will bring a smile to mom’s face like handmade artwork made just for her! Do you have a crafty family? Try creating a photo collage or have kiddos make a fingerpaint masterpiece. If you’d rather leave art to the pros, order custom artwork from an online craft marketplace. You can get a painting, drawing, or digital image of a favorite family picture, childhood home, or even mom’s beloved labradoodle! Make sure to custom-frame her gift at your local FastFrame store so the artwork is protected, displayed beautifully, and ready to hang.

A Recipe for Love

Grandma’s pecan pie, great-uncle Vito’s spaghetti bolognese—everyone has a cherished recipe unique to their family. Surprise mom and honor her favorite family recipe by framing it! You can frame an original copy or make your own version by typing it up, choosing a fun font, and printing it on nice paper. If you want a little more pizzazz, tap a graphic designer friend (or find one online) to professionally design your recipe. Opt for custom framing to preserve your recipe and turn it into a memento mom can hand down to future generations.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our five favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas! Many of these presents are enhanced through custom-framing, so be sure to stop by a FastFrame store to take your gift to the next level!
