Ask any Mum for her 'perfect day' wishlist...and it may look something like this:
Champagne Breakfast in bed (at a luxury 5* hotel).
Ideally served by Brad Pitt.
Some kind of amazing spa treatment, with hot stone massage therapy.
A girlie movie.
With the girls.
And Brad? (Is this too much Brad?)
Endless Dom Pérignon.
Diamonds. Lots of.
A helicopter ride somewhere.
Shopping spree down Rodeo Drive.
Dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
Bed. With or without Brad. They both might be a bit tired at this point.
Pretty unattainable?! Mmm...thought so.
Welcome to Plan B.
A lovely list of photo gifts that will put a smile on her face. And you won't be re-mortgaging the house to afford them!
Plus if you order them by this weekend, they'll arrive on time. YAY!
A photo make-up bag:
She’ll use this EVERY day, so it ticks the practical box. (I’m a big fan of that). And will bring back happy memories too. Win win!
Personalised photo travel mug:
How lovely are these? You can never have enough travel mugs. Environmentally friendly too – so a "win win". And only £13.99.
A personalised photo apron:
Now this is a bit contentious.
Ts and Cs apply which look like this:
It can only be used by Mum if she’s baking/cooking something that she WANTS to be baking and cooking.
It is NOT, I repeat, NOT to be used for the washing up.
(I still feel bad that I once gave my Mum some new tea-towels for her birthday when I was 10 years old.
Personalised Solid Copper Photo Print:
So simple. And stylish. And gorgeous. And really unusual I think.
Photo tile with stand:
Really dull description! But it would look fab on Mum’s desk at work. Or on Granny’s bedside table. And it shows you’ve MADE AN EFFORT with your gift! YAY!
A personalised photo sewing/trinket tin:
Who doesn’t love a tin to put things in?!
Okay – so it’s very girlie! But this IS Mother’s Day after all!
And only £15.99.
A personalised framed photo cotton print:
I’ve never seen this before – but it’s divine! More like a piece of art. And you can put a little message underneath too. Aah!
Framed magnet collage:
I thought this was a lovely idea. You have 9 images to choose from, which is a bonus if you’ve got lots to choose from. (Brad, George Clooney, Ryan Gosling…? Only an idea!)
A heart-shaped collage of photos:
So if you’ve got 20 photos, then think about this. They’ll be small, so iphone pics are perfect to bring back happy memories.
Well come on…you didn’t think I’d do a whole blog on photo gift ideas and not mention a PHOTOSHOOT did you?!
Of course not!
A Family Photoshoot with yours truly:
Yes… family photoshoots are a brilliant idea for Mother’s Day. Just to capture that moment in time. It’s all planned out: outfits that look great, trips to the hair salon, Mum looking fabulous. It’s something that no family ever regrets.
Vouchers start from £50. Contact me for more info https://www.katielucasphotography.co.uk/contact and i'll email you “My Photoshoot Journey” booklet, which has everything you need to know, including all prices up front.
And if none of these gift ideas appeal, then I suggest you take out a MASSIVE bank loan and contact Brad Pitt’s agent.
