Sweet and simple Mother's Day gift ideas
Mother’s Day is all about moms. And about all moms. So, sure, it’s a day to relax and get pampered, but it’s also a day to take time to thank and recognize our moms, grandmas and all the “like a mom” ladies in our life. (And that might be a whole lot of ladies!)
Here’s one way Hallmark can help: our sweet and simple collage frame (available here). It’s a gift that you can easily personalize for every mom—or anyone else you’d like to show some appreciation. We’ll show you 5 ideas for changing up this frame to make it uniquely hers. Plus we have a bunch of other Mother's Day gift ideas—all guaranteed to bring on a hug and a squeeze.
There’s nothing as heartwarming as sharing in the same milestone memories. Showcase the wedding photos of three or four generations, if you’re lucky enough to have them. Grandma can’t help but be proud of the family tree when she can see the love being repeated throughout her ever-extending family.
Enlist your kids to make a special piece of artwork for Mom or Grandma, such as art from school, coloring pages or hand-drawn family portraits. And our printable quote helps tie the whole display together.
Fill the frames with recipes passed down from Mom and Grandma that were favorites in the family. We added small hooks at the bottom of our frame to showcase Grandma’s favorite baking utensils and handmade potholders. You could also include a scrap from an old family apron or a photograph of her kitchen from long, long ago. It will remind her of all the days—and tummies—she filled with love.
Capturing the exciting moments just before and after Baby’s arrival is a wonderful way to celebrate. A collage of items like a baby shower invite or birth announcement, a picture of the new baby, a first sonogram and a lock of hair from a first haircut will be a perfect addition to a new mom’s home.
Longtime friends and those who are like a mom to you will love feeling appreciated for everything they do—keeping lives running smoothly and friends and family members happy. Fill one of the frames with a personal note of appreciation or our printable "Laugh" quote and turn the rest into an organizing board with our chore and shopping list printables.
Now it’s time to try your hand at turning our collage frame into something that’s all about Mom. Or if that’s not quite what you were looking for, keep scrolling for more ideas.
