More Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
In the United States, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Though Mother’s Day gift guides suggest giving handmade items such as hand-stamped aprons, macaroni necklaces, and “world’s best mom” t-shirts, those gifts are likely to be tossed into a closet the very next day. If you want mom to enjoy her Mother’s Day gift, after the celebration is over, get her a personalized gift card. The card will be every bit as personal as a thumbprint butterfly on a clay pot, but will be significantly more useful. Need some clever ways to make your personalized gift cards more personal?
Here’s how to give Mother’s Day gift cards:
- Fashionista Mom. Find a picture of mom from the good ol’ days, in her “mom jeans” and big 80’s hair. Upload the photo to make a gift card and add, “You Still Got It” to the custom message line. Deliver the gift card with one of mom’s beauty staples (e.g. her favorite lipstick, a new hair towel) or tuck it into a new travel makeup bag.
- Power Mom. Electronics are no longer reserved for just men and teenagers. Technology-savvy moms are powering up with smartphones, earpieces, and more. Put a photo of mom’s current phone on a gift card and write a note that reads, “Time for an Upgrade.”
- Sporty Mom. From tennis to canyoneering, active moms will appreciate a gift card that can be used to buy new equipment or to pay for a massage after her next endurance challenge. Make a custom gift card with a photo of mom doing her favorite fitness activity and deliver it with a new water bottle and an offer to watch the kids when she leaves.
- Crafty Mom. Whether she makes jewelry, sews pillows, or installs her own crown molding, a personalized Visa gift card can be used to purchase DIY supplies from just about anywhere. Upload a glamor shot of mom for the gift card and write, “Next Design Star” on the message line. Punch a hole in the corner of the gift card (being careful not to punch the magnetic stripe) and use a ribbon to tie the gift card to the handle of a new pair of scissors.
If you do not have time to get crafty, select a Mother’s Day gift card design from our predesigned gallery.
