(NAPSA)-The key to making Mother’s Day memorable is to make it personal. When shopping for the moms in your life, remember to focus on what she really likes, wants or wouldn’t purchase for herself.
Here are some personalized gift ideas:
A Gift in Her Name
If your mom has a favorite cause or social concern, consider making a charitable donation in her name. Make sure the organization you are donating to reflects her values and lifestyle. For example, if she loves animals, you may want to make a donation to a local animal rescue organization on her behalf. Make her a personalized card to let her know all about your gift and the organization. Include a photo of the family pet.
Her Name in Print
Retailers such as FedEx Office can help design the cards if you are among the creatively challenged. They have a wide range of design templates to get you started-from floral and elegant to modern and monogrammed. You can even order them online if you prefer.
Basket of Luxury
Chocolate is almost always a hit, particularly if your mom has a taste for handmade confections. Create a basket of goodies with a selection of her favorite chocolates and baked goods. Add a variety of gourmet coffees or teas and perhaps a gift certificate to a local day spa to create a truly luxurious gift. Tuck in a coffee cup with a picture of her loved ones on it.
Works of Art
Take drawings made by your kids and turn them into quality art pieces in a few simple steps. Make photocopies of the drawings in the sizes you’d like for the framed pieces. These color copies will also last longer and look nicer in the frames than the originals. Next, visit a local craft or frame store to choose the mats and frames. Then, trim down the copies if needed and put it all together for a truly personal present this Mother’s Day!
