Mother's Day gifts are meaningless unless they come from the heart.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Mother's Day gifts are meaningless unless they come from the heart. Kids often create folded greeting cards in school, but adults rarely bother to make handmade presents for mom's special day. Between juggling work and their own families, most grownups try to get by with e-cards, fast phone calls, and flowers that quickly wilt away. But moms are equipped with extraordinary powers of parental perception, and they know when their kids are just going through the Mother's Day motions half-heartedly. Instead of disappointing mom again with generic junk from the corner drugstore, give her something tangible to cherish: custom keepsakes created just for her.
Moms and Grandmas love the intimate feel of snail mail, so greeting card printing is a surefire maternal crowd pleaser. Thankfully, the card design doesn't have to fit a specific occasion. The artwork can be anything from a child's drawing to a favorite picture from the family photo album. Another option would be to save mom trouble during the holidays by setting her up with beautiful Christmas cards and thank you notes in advance. This way she will be able tell everyone on her mailing list about how the cards came from her thoughtful son or daughter. Businesses should also consider working with a commercial printing company on a Mother's Day greeting card promotion. Instead of advertising an annual Mother's Day sale with ordinary direct mailers, send high quality cards with handwritten messages to make a lasting impression.
Stationery printing and notepads are popular options to go along with greeting cards. Full color letterhead is a hot commodity among mompreneurs, especially of the stay at home mommy blogger variety. Of course, her new letterhead set won't be complete without matching envelopes. No self-respecting career woman would dare put her pretty paper inside plain packaging. While stationary can be considered a luxury item, notepads fall under the practical gifts category. Pocket sized notepads will fit inside her purse for easy transport to the grocery store. Businesses can give away notepads during in store Mother's Day events or include them as part of a branded direct mail campaign.
Since mothers are sentimental by nature, they adore gifts that feature pieces of the past. Imagine the look on mom's face when she sees her wedding picture or a black and white family portrait on a gorgeous canvas photo print? She'll hang it on the wall, and eagerly share snapshots with all of her friends on Facebook. Mounted canvas also helps moms remember loved ones who have already passed, including their own mothers. Ancestry buffs tend to gravitate towards canvas as a way of displaying restored photos of long lost relatives. Businesses looking for an exciting Mother's Day contest prize should recognize the potential here immediately. Give customers raffle tickets with their purchases, and hold the drawing during a Mother's Day themed celebration with homemade refreshments.
When one photo simply won't do, put mom's top 12 picks on a custom calendar. Working moms will appreciate desk calendars made with family pictures to remind them of what they're toiling over. Wall calendars are available for white collar women with their own offices.
