Mother's Day gifts: Plan A & Plan B!




Ask any Mum for her 'perfect day' wishlist...and it may look something like this:


A lie-in


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.


Again…involving Brad.


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!

£21.00

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.

https://givepersonalisedgifts.co.uk/products/personalised-photo-upload-reusable-cup?variant=31305417228363&currency=GBP&utm_campaign=gs-2018-12-02&utm_source=google&utm_medium=smart_campaign



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.

I know.

Horrendous.)

£17.99

Personalised Solid Copper Photo Print:

So simple. And stylish. And gorgeous. And really unusual I think.

£24.

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!

£13.99

https://www.snapfish.co.uk/photo-gifts/photo-tile-with-stand#!/pdpview



A personalised photo sewing/trinket tin:

Who doesn’t love a tin to put things in?!

No-one. Fact.

Okay – so it’s very girlie! But this IS Mother’s Day after all!

And only £15.99.

https://www.photobox.co.uk/shop/photo-gifts/personalised-tin



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!

£38.

https://www.notonthehighstreet.com/modocreative/product/personalised-favourite-photo-cotton-print


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!)

£21.99

https://www.photobox.co.uk/shop/wall-decor/magnetic-frame



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.

£19.99

https://www.gettingpersonal.co.uk/gifts/multi-photo-upload-framed-print-photo-heart.htm?opti_ca=1710395234&opti_ag=93258182614&opti_ad=417964385175&opti_key=pla-296100305666&gclid=Cj0KCQjw9ZzzBRCKARIsANwXaeKYSzDRzraqZGp5hirLJAJ_sMNe14lziLs-oRdS7sVMSTd6gqQ7X0saAso7EALw_wcB


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.


Good luck!
