Gift Guide: Great Gifts for Mom

This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for supporting Kate the (Almost) Great!

It’s time for another gift guide! In this one, as you can tell from the title, I’m sharing great gifts for mom. This actually came from one of you! A few weeks ago, I asked you guys what gift guides you wanted to see this year. If there’s another one you would like to see, now is the time to tell me! Before long, it will be too late, as I plan my posts a while in advance.

2019 Great Gifts for Mom: Photo Gifts

Photo albums – In the age of Facebook and Instagram, we don’t pull together photo albums like our parents did when we were kids. So a few years ago, my mom asked to get photo album(s) for one holiday or another. Now, as you know, I’m not married and I don’t have kids. I even live with my parents. So it’s not like I’m living a separate life from her and she wants to see more of it; she wanted things from when I was in high school and on. Shutteryfly has a few different services for albums. In one service, “Our talented designers will curate your photos and make a photo book for you. Buy it only if you like it!” (x). That service is $9.99, plus the cost of however many pages you do. I like to make them myself, so I do, which starts at $15.99. Another website is Snapfish, which has books starting at $19.99.

Family calendar – A few years ago, someone in my family made a family calendar for my grandma. It included pictures of everyone in my family during our birth months, our birthdays written on the date, the anniversaries included, as well as the traditional holidays (Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, etc.). Shutterfly has easel, desk, wall, poster, and magnet calendars. From what I can tell, Snapfish only has easel and wall calendars.

Other photo gifts – There are lots of photo gifts out there! Shutterfly’s mugs are $16.99, ornaments start at $24.99, and iPhone cases start at $24.99. Snapfish’s mugs start at $12.99, ornaments start at $7.99, and phone cases (not just iPhone cases!) start at $34.99.

    I got my mom and air fryer last year and it has been her saving grace! So glad to see that was included! And I’m getting my parents a Roomba for Christmas this year so I hope they like it!
