With Mother’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to start searching for the perfect gift. Although chocolate and wine are always easy go-tos, they lack sentimental value. You’re much likelier to make Mom’s day with something more meaningful.

Most moms love few things more than displaying photos of their kids and loved ones all around the house. Printing family photos onto a canvas is a simple, affordable, and mother-approved gift idea, especially if you’re short on time. Below are five gift ideas you can give to your mom, grandma, wife, or any other mom you know for Mother’s Day.

1: The Family Portrait

As a husband, getting your wife a gift can come with some pretty high expectations. But this year, you can easily shake them off: It’s time to finally print the family portrait that you all got dressed up for last summer. She's been meaning to get it printed but just hasn't found the time yet and would love seeing a fond memory of you, her, and the kids on the entryway table, in the living room, or anywhere else you put it. You’ll probably love seeing it all the time, too. Get started with a 24x30 Canvas Print for your whole family.

2: A Generation Photo

Most of the time, a mother’s home is filled with pictures of her children – frames hanging on the stairwell, pictures all over the mantel. But what about photos of Mom’s own mom, granddaughters, or grandmas? A 12x16 Framed Print is a great way to connect generations of moms and daughters – all moms were kids once, too.

3: The Family Pet

Furbabies are children too. Perhaps your family grew up with loyal Fido by your side or you and your spouse have ten cats. Either way, an 8x10 Tabletop Canvas of a goofy photo of your dog or a snuggly cat pic is a great way to celebrate the love for our furrier family members. Plus, if you already have dozens of photos of your children, now’s the time to highlight another true star of the family.

4: A Photo of a Great Family Vacation

Remind mom of her favorite vacay moments by printing a photo of an old family vacation. It’s a blast to the past that can create warm, fuzzy feelings and jumpstart the gears for planning the next family getaway. A 24x36 canvas is a show-stopper sized gift that'll show off all those happy family vibes.

Do you have pictures of your mom getting married that would make great wall art? Or perhaps you and her together at your own wedding? Make these unforgettable moments permanent by turning them into a 20x24 Canvas Print for all your house guests and loved ones to see. You’ll make mom happy and bring a smile to the kids’ faces when they see their photos hanging on the wall.
