Calling all kids (and dads)! Mother’s Day is less than a month away, and falls this year on Sunday, May 8th. How will you make this Mom’s Day one to remember?
At OXO Digital Organizing, we’re all about honoring moms and our precious family memories. That’s why we compiled 5 unique photo gift ideas (and a free bonus!) to celebrate the woman who made them possible. From toddlers to teens to grown-up kids, there’s something here for everyone!
From Younger Kids to Mom:
Gift Idea #1 – Custom, 3D Printed Kids’ Art with Kids Creation Station
The little ones will knock mom’s socks off this year with the help of Kids Creation Station, which uses 3D printing technology to visualize a child’s imagination in a three-dimensional space.
Simply scan and upload your kid’s drawings or pieces of artwork – then sit back, relax and receive a 3D printed sculpture of your child’s art in the mail along with a special custom display case. Visit the Kids Creation Station website for more information on lead and ship times.
For Moms & Kids of All Ages
Gift Idea #2 – Digital Photo Canvas Wraps
Transform mom’s favorite family photos into a functional gift with the help of canvas wraps. Upload mom’s favorite photo from a graduation, birthday, vacation, or kids’ photo shoot, and turn it into an inexpensive, impressive canvas piece of art in a flash.
Gift Idea #3 – Glass and Metal Photo Keepsakes
Take your photo gift up a notch by printing mom’s favorite digital photos on glass or metal. This gallery-inspired look works particularly well for areas with moisture, including bathrooms and kitchens.
These keepsakes also allow for the creation of a more mature 3D gift, by printing on a geometric piece of metal, for instance. Shop sites like Adorama, Fracture, or local Central Florida stores like Walgreen’s for the style that suits mom best.
Gift Idea # 4 -Photo Recipe Books
Does your mom love to cook? Perhaps family recipes made famous by mom and grandma would be best suited in a rich, visual recipe book. A variety of photo shops and websites online, like Blurb and Create My Cookbook, allow you to make a custom recipe book out of a combination of family stories, photos, and recipes.
Choose from a variety of templates, design your project, and even have it printed hard bound so mom feels like a culinary superstar.
Ideas That Put Mom in Charge:
Gift Idea #5 – Photo Organizing Gift Cards

Bonus Idea – Attend the Preserving Family Memories Workshop Event with Mom on 4/30!
Are you and mom located here in Central Florida? We have a bonus idea for you: Spend the morning with her on Saturday, April 30th at the Preserving Family Memories Workshop Event!
Held from 10:30-noon at the Maitland Public Library, this American Library Association Preservation Week event is perfect for moms that may be intimidated by photo organizing or don’t know where to start. No matter how organized mom is, this is a great event for spending quality time with her and learning something new! Best of all, there is absolutely no charge to attend the event.
Learn simple ways to protect precious photos and documents, hear from local experts on backup, “digitizing”, and other related tools, and best of all, mom can bring up to 50 of her photos and get them scanned for free. Don’t miss it!
As always, if you have any questions about how you can wow your mom this Mother’s Day with a custom digital photo gift – Fill out this quick form or call 407-205-7696 and we’ll help point you in the right direction!
We can also connect you with fellow expert organizers and APPO members outside of Florida, should you need local photo and/or file organizing help.
