6 Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas She’ll Adore

pizap.com14623950185851The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and children everywhere are getting spring fever. That must mean one thing… Mother’s Day is around the corner!

Mother’s Day is an annual holiday celebrated the second Sunday in May. Now, we know YOU celebrate Mother’s Day year round, but if you’re looking forward to creating a special gift for the mom in your life in celebration of this specially-designated day, we have some great last minute ideas for you.

Keepsake Box

A keepsake box is a thoughtful gift for mom, with which you can fill with whatever special trinkets you want. And, it’s super-simple to create, too! You can buy a simple wooden box from Michaels, then use Modge Podge to affix your favorite digital creation using piZap’s photo tool.

Here is an idea:

We created this choosing the horizontal format, adding a background, layering in a sticker and adding text. Easy.

Personalize & Print

Printables, of course, do not have to stop with a keepsake box. Another fun idea is to personalize a printable you would then frame. Document the key dates in moms life, add some flair with some of the thousands of stickers at piZap and you’ve whipped up a thoughtful frameable.

Here is a fun idea, mom will love to frame:


DIY Tile Coasters

If mom likes to drink coffee, tea or wine (and what mom doesn’t drink wine?!), she will adore these fun DIY Tile Photo Coasters. Using your Modge Podge from our first suggestion, plus a few other tools, these are super simple to pull together. Best of all, you can use piZap to edit your photo to perfection!

Our editing tool allows you to crop, rotate, and flip. You can also play around with the brightness and saturation. If all those choices overwhelm you, check out our many filters. Change your image to black and white, overlay interesting textures, play around with color splash and more. So many options. So little time.
