The Best Mother's Day Gift Ever- Mom Photo

If you're feeling the pressure to find the perfect gift for the mother in your life, I have the best idea ever!  I know it's the best- because it was given to me!  My husband got Crafty and surprised me with the Best Mother's Day Gift Ever - A Mom Photo.

Mom Photo - aka the best Mother's Day Gift ever!

For Mother's Day, almost any mom wants, ok I can't speak for everyone, what I want on Mother's Day is to be thought of and remembered for the hard work I do as a mom.  Although I love my kids fiercely, being a mom is by far the most challenging job I've ever had.  But even on the rough days, I feel so blessed that I am a mom to my 3 babes!  

On Mother's Day 7 years ago, my husband gave me the sweetest gift ever.  He took my 3 favorite little people, and found a creative way to take a picture of each of them with the letters M O M.  He pulled up some letters in a word processing program on my computer and sat each of my kids in my chair and took a photo of them.  He then printed the photos, put them in a frame, and presented it to me for Mother's Day!

I was so touched by his efforts!  It was such a thoughtful and creative gift!  Not only that, he has continued to gift me with these MOM photo gifts every year since.  I have a collection of 6 mom photos hanging on the wall in my office.  I love seeing how much my kids have grown from year to year.

This gift is really easy to do and costs next to no money.  Just because a gift is thoughtful, does not mean it has to be expensive.  Effort trumps expense every day!
