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!!
