The Perfect Mothers' Day Gift
THE PERFECT MOTHERS’ DAY GIFT
Mothers’ Day is a scant two months away…it’s hard to believe but true. And one thing I hear people repeatedly saying is that time seems to go so fast these days.
Now is a great time to start thinking about that all-important Mothers’ Day gift. The weather is still in transition from Winter to Spring, making it still a time to relax indoors and work on projects, organizing and planning. Taxes aren’t due for another month-and-a-half, so you don’t need to be in panic mode yet. We have put the angst of Valentine’s Day behind us, and Christmas is still just a mere glimmer on the horizon. Why wait until April to get your Mothers’ Day gift settled?
Photographs make the perfect Mothers’ Day gift. Here’s why:
Budget Friendliness: You can find a fit for any budget by gifting a photographic print or photo-based product;
Emotional Impact: The whole premise of Mothers’ Day is based on sentimentality, so an emotion-evoking gift like a family portrait isn’t narcissistic for this particular holiday;
Spot-On Appropriate: Most Mothers that I know appreciate a great photograph of their children and/or grandchildren as a gift for this special day in a way that no other group of people does;
A One-of-a-Kind Gift: It is guaranteed to be unique!
Don’t want to go to the trouble of arranging for a photo session? Find out Mom’s favorite color or subject and give her the gift of a framed or unframed print. You will be supporting a local artist while giving your Mom something she can enjoy day after day for years to come….unlike those boring fallbacks like chocolates and flowers. Why not give Mom a flower print?
Maybe she has a soft spot for Hummingbirds, replenishing a feeder year-round?
Or how about a Nature print with vibrant, cheerful colors? Or her favorite color?
