Best Customized Gifts for Moms Birthday
So, it’s your mom’s birthday, and you’re faced with the annual question: what do you get from someone who gave you literally everything?
Sure, there’s a lot of options – clothes or jewelry or something for the house. But your mom is special and you don’t want to get her a gift just off the rack. Ideally, you want to give her something as special and unique as she is.
And what could be more unique than a personalized gift, custom-made for mom?
Personalized gifts are a great way to show you care, and beyond being a piece of jewelry are a sentimental gift that can reflect a piece of your mom’s personality, an inside joke, or a favorite memory.
Here are 4 great custom gifts for mom that won’t break the bank.
A custom name necklace
There’s one thing any mom – actually any woman or girl – will always appreciate: a classy piece of jewelry. While you could go for a ring or bracelet, for mom’s birthday, a mother daughter necklace would be the most perfect idea.
What better way to celebrate your bond with mom than a beautiful necklace, perhaps with a symbolic design that speaks to a special memory, or just your and mom’s name linked together. You know she’ll hold it close to her heart, both literally and metaphorically. One day, the piece of personalized jewelry may even be a heirloom, handed down from your mom to your children and future generations.
To really reflect your connection with mom, consider getting two matching necklaces, for example two necklaces with half a heart each that are built to fit perfectly together – just like you and mom.
Get the whole family together for a family photo
You know that there’s nothing mom loves more than her family. So what better gift for mom than a framed photo of the family all together. Preferably one that’s professionally taken so you can make sure that – unlike in the rest of your family pictures – everyone’s eyes are open and no one is making weird faces at the camera.
Book a photo session at a local studio and round up the whole family. Loop in even the grandparents if you can, and don’t forget the family pets. Top it all off with a custom frame to display the picture with the date, the names of the family, or even include a handwritten message on the back. And voila, you’ve gifted your mom with an amazing birthday gift, a beautiful memory she can look at every day, and also a piece of decor for her walls.
Make a Mom-Memories Scrapbook
Another great way to celebrate Mom and her love of the whole family is a custom made scrapbook. What better way to recap all the wonderful memories with mom than a visual walk through your life together. Round up all the pictures of you and mom, or of the family. We’re sure mom has tons of photos with you as a baby and growing up, round them up and stick them in the scrapbook !
Bonus points for pictures of mom taking you to your first day at school, you and mom out for a dinner date, and even the first picture of you and mom the day you were born. Make sure you find pictures of mom even before she was mom, because as hard as it may be to believe, she did have a life before you !
And don’t stick just to pictures. Write down your most special memories, inside jokes, or quotes from songs, books and movies that remind you of the most special woman in the world.
A Personalized Apron
Your memories of mom are probably populated with lots of times she cooked for you; whether baking your birthday cake, making soup when you were sick, or just cooking your favorite meals up every day. While you don’t want to give your mom more work by asking her to cook for you on your birthday, an apron is always a great gift for moms who love to bake and cook.
But don’t get her just any apron – customize her one ! Get her an apron with a customized photo or embroidery on the front. You can either go for an elegant design that makes her feel beautiful even when baking, or go for a quirky, fun twist by printing your face on the apron (or the cat’s face – depending on who the family favorite is).
For a particularly sentimental twist, see if you can scrounge up a piece of art you made in elementary school, which your mom most likely has saved somewhere in a dusty box in the attic. Not only is it a great reminder of a special memory, it’s a great way to show that no matter how grown up you are, you’re always mommy’s little girl.
