Gifts for Mom for Christmas 2010

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 19-11-2007

Finding the right gift for mother at Christmas doesn’t have to take a long time or even break the bank.  Here are some old and new ideas for this mother’s day. All you have to do is NOT wait until the last minute:

A clutch of printed baby photos: If you’re like most people, you now have literally thousands of digital photos hogging disk space on your computer. What you likely don’t have are many prints of these photos. A very thoughtful and very inexpensive gift is to take 25-50 favorite photos of your bambino and get them printed out. 

At the cost of maybe ten bucks, you have a very thoughtful present. For a little bit more ($168), here’s a fun photo charm bracelet from Teaccups and Tadpoles that will likely have her crying if you find the best photos of you and the kids to put in it.

(There’s a special offer for GreatDad users: 15% off on orders of $50 or more. Enter code GREATDAD15 in the comments box at checkout and your credit card will be refunded 15% after the sale.)

Apple iTunes

iPod: Maybe by now, everyone in America already has one, but if your wife doesn’t, this is always a hit.  She can load it up with kids’ songs to play in the car, lectures if she’s the studious type, or top 40 for the gym.

Flowers – sure, it’s an old standby, but they are always appreciated. Guys never understand why and maybe that’s why moms appreciate it when we think of them; because they know it’s a big stretch for us. Whether you buy them at the grocery store on Sunday morning or order ahead from one of these online stores, they never disappoint.

Her own digital camera – hottest little point and shoot. Here is a list of some great digital cameras for you to select from.
  A special craft project. Okay, it’s another time-intensive gift, but this one comes with plenty of time off for mom while you take the kids down to the basement to work on the special project. Here is a  site with plenty of projects and stuff you can easily make with the kids for mom. We especially liked the House Keys wood, glue and paint idea
  Photo mug: Yes, it is corny, but moms can’t resist the picture of a little baby grinning from the side of a coffee mug. You can only hope you get so lucky that someone gets one for you. And, not at all expensive – it just takes time. With this one, just make sure to order early, and get one for both grandmas (and maybe grandpas!) at the same time. We like online photo gifts. Other good options are Photoworks and Shutterfly.
  Spa certificate: All this takes is the forethought to stop by a local spa or gym and buy a gift certificate. Of course, the catch is that you will watch the little rascals for a few hours.
  Picture Book: If you have a lot of digital pictures and are always frustrated that there are never any printouts, make a picture book. If you have a Mac, it’s very simple right out of iPhoto. Photoworks and Shutterfly also help you make them as well.
