Nowadays we all take lots of photos on holidays and special occasions but many of us don't get around to printing them off – they just stay hidden away on a USB! A collection of framed photo-memories could be the perfect gift this Mother's Day. Surprise her by choosing the photos yourself and framing them so that they're ready to hang on the wall straight away. Alternatively, you could go through the photos with her and pick out the best ones together. The time you spend looking through all the old memories and reminiscing together will be a heartfelt gift in itself.
If you're helping your kids make Mothers Day gifts for their mum, framed artwork is always a good choice! Get the kids to create something special such as a painted family portrait, an embroidered scene or an eye catching collage. Then frame the artwork with a complementary custom frame. Don't forget to help the kids write a Mother's Day card with a heartfelt message to go with the gift.
Is your mum a reader? Does she like a good quote? A framed quote from her favourite book or poem is a great Mother's Day gift idea. If you're a creative person, you could hand write the quote or create an attractive digital print of it yourself. If you'd rather leave the creativity up to someone else, find a local designer or illustrator who can make it look amazing. Finish it off with a custom frame that ties in nicely with your mum's existing decor.
For mums that love nature, you can make a gorgeous gift by framing pressed flowers and leaves from around your neighbourhood. If you don't have a flower press at home, simply collect a range of attractive flowers and leaves, place them between two sheets of absorbent paper and then put this under a stack of heavy books. Leave it for a week or two to allow the botanicals to completely dry. Get creative with the arrangements! You could even do two or three frames that coordinated together.
An astrological map is a map of the stars! These look amazing framed in a simple black, white or gold frame.

You could choose a map of the stars on her birthday, wedding day or any other special occasion that you know she'll appreciate.
