Can you believe Mother’s Day is just over a week away? I can’t! We’ve only had a handful of nice days yet so it definitely doesn’t seem like it should be approaching May already! At Christmas, I did a post for Shutterfly Christmas cards and earned 50 free cards. They contacted me again about doing a post about Mother’s Day and in return I get either cards or a photobook from them. Cool right? If you’re interested in doing the same, click here!!
I usually get my Mom something for Mother’s Day. She reads this blog so I can’t tell you what I’m thinking of getting her, but I’ve got a few good ideas. Last year, I got her a necklace from Shutterfly’s photo gifts with a picture of the three kids. She LOVED it! It was fancier and much cuter than I even expected.
In the past, I’ve also made one of these photobooks for gifts and for myself. I love how you can really personalize them to what you need for your scrapbook! I have even used Shutterfly to make thank you cards after Olivia’s golf outing. I like that you can personalize them with pictures and text.
Of course I also try to have the kids make something handmade. Even if it’s just a card, I think my Mom and Matt’s mom enjoy it. I usually make one for Matt’s sister and my stepmom too. What do you usually do for Mother’s Day?
Then, when the big day comes, I sit back and relax and avoid laundry and cleaning at all costs!!
We’re looking at photo books for mom’s too. They are incredibly fun to make! Hope your Mother’s day is fantastic!!
I think I will opt for the photobook too. It is such a great gift!
This might be Mama’s last Mother’s Day. I’m trying not to dwell on that.
Thanks for sharing the shutterfly info. And I can’t believe Mother’s day is so close. I don’t know how I keep forgetting!!!
Enjoyed every bit of your article. Great.
