Everything for Mums, for everything they do
It’s the thought that counts when it comes giving the perfect gift, so how about these ideas to give your Mum something unique to treasure for Mother’s Day…
Family heirloom photo book
Celebrate Mum’s history with an heirloom photo book. Seek out special photos and touching stories from family and friends. Include a variety of past and present images and add your own text to tell each story. Some image ideas to include are: maternity photos taken of Mum, photos of you and your siblings, family holidays and get-togethers, family pets and grandparents. Why not scan and upload tickets from a memorable event, handwritten family recipes and letters too?
The most precious gift is time…
Create a special set of photo cards designed as coupons, giving Mum breakfast in bed, a bubble bath, candle lit dinner…Include a photo of you or the kids holding a coupon sign, or write the coupon on the back of the card.
Say cheese! Take a family portrait
Dress up the family for a memorable photo or find Mum’s favourite family portrait and present it to her as a stunning piece of wall art. Get some candid shots with the kids goofing around and blur the background by switching your camera to Program or Aperture mode. Showcase on a classy photo canvas, a room brightening poster or a wooden photo panel.
Take those photos off the fridge and into the scanner! Get the kids involved – it is their artwork after all! They’ll love turning their own art into a unique Mother’s Day card or gifts like mugs, coasters, mouse mats or a photo book. Simply scan the artwork and save onto your computer. If you don’t have a scanner, you can photograph their art against a plain white background and zoom in, using a flash. Upload to Snapfish using the ‘Large Print Upload’ option so that your image will upload at the highest resolution and then get creative with their masterpieces!
