Give Mom Personalized Gifts from the Heart for Mother’s Day

*This post is sponsored by Shutterfly. Show mom how much you care this Mother’s Day with the perfect, customizable photo gift made with Shutterfly.


Mother’s Day is on its way soon and I am going to be on top of it. I haven’t always had the best track record with finding a beautiful gift for my mom for Mother’s Day. The years I am on the ball, my Mom’s whole face lights up with surprise and excitement. Other years I get the polite smile and I know the gift just didn’t have the wow factor I was hoping for. So this year I’m going for a personalized gift that makes her feel extra special, and I found everything I need at Shutterfly.

Have you checked out the amazing personalized photo gifts section lately? Not only are there a ton of choices so the gift is extra special, but the quality of the gifts is amazing. I know when someone has given me a personalized gift it feels so special they took the time to make something that is just for me.

Make Mother’s Day Personal With Shutterfly’s Creative Photo Gift Ideas

I have to let you in on my secret. I had a hard time choosing just one gift for my mom because I love so many of the choices. I have narrowed down my choice to my top three ideas. Maybe you can help me decide which one to pick dear readers?

  1. Cool Personalized Coffee Mugs


 If you need a little inspiration for a gift, start by checking out these cool personalized coffee mugs at Shutterfly. They come in so many fun color options too, so you can get mom’s favorite! I particularly love the stainless steel travel mugs as so many of us are on the go. It’s so hard to decide, as some of the ceramic mugs come with hot chocolate or some seriously delicious looking chocolates. Chocolate may win this time! I can include pictures of my kiddos and the whole family.


I was happily surprised to see how easy it was to add my own personal photos on Shutterfly. I had to add that selfie of me and my mom from Easter to my project when I was testing out how the mug might look. Shutterfly also has this cool new art library, which is full of beautiful pictures and quotes you can add to your projects. I want some of these images printed on a canvas for my home, the images all are beautiful.

  1. Personalized Wine Glasses and Mason Jars


Shutterfly has been expanding into some other super fun photo gifts that are so personal that they catch you by the heart. Check out these custom wine glasses and mason jars! You can include mom’s monogram, a quote to inspire her, or even something funny. My mom would die laughing if I gave her a glass with “Queen” and her name on it. These are such adorable gifts, and feel even more special printed on glassware.

  1. Personalized Blankets


You have to check out one more great idea, because it’s just so cute I can barely stand it. I just love these personalized plush fleece blankets and Sherpa fleece blankets. These are seriously one of the cutest personalized gift ideas I’ve ever seen. I know my mom’s eyes would light up seeing a blanket with her family printed across it. Even better I love how lovely some of these styles are. Why hello beautiful monograms and art! These are high quality blankets with clear images. How cute would it be to include a picture of your kid’s drawing alongside their photo on a blanket for someone special on Mother’s Day?


Shutterfly has lots of other unique photo gifts. Looking through these different options, there are so many great ideas. I like how quick these gifts are to put together. They are super-fast to create with all the great features. It’s the thought that counts, so focus your efforts and give something personal that will light up the eyes of your favorite mom on Mother’s Day. For me? It’s beautiful!

I think I’ve figured out what I’m getting my mom for Mother’s Day. It’s a hard choice, but I know she’d love the blanket… and a coffee mug… but the personalized glassware is super adorable… Maybe I can make her a birthday gift at the same time that I make her Mother’s Day gift!
