I’m always a little stumped when it comes to finding just the right gifts for Mother’s Day.

Don’t get me wrong. My Mom has always been thrilled with the gifts I’ve given to her…be it a homemade concoction when I was a child or something a bit more expensive, like jewelry or perfume.

But my Mom never asks for a thing and frankly, usually makes it clear she really doesn’t NEED anything. So, while I try to give her useful, practical things, I want there to be something special about those gifts for her too. *This post is sponsored. Products selected and opinions are my own.

That’s why I was so excited to partner with Snapfish for Mother’s Day. I have never used Snapfish (I know! Where I have I been?) and was impressed by all of their ideas for Mother’s Day gifts.

Let’s Get Started On Those Mother’s Day Gifts

If you’re like most people, you probably have hundreds, or maybe thousands of pictures on your phone or computer. And there they sit, while you keep adding more and more and more images.

One of the many pictures I have saved on my computer. Time to use it!

You’re not alone. I have so many great photos of the kids, my mom, my mom and the kids, the dogs, a pretty flower. They just sit on my phone, hoping I remember to look through them once in awhile.

So, when I saw all of the ways I could use some of these photos and create some really special gifts for Mother’s Day, I was thrilled. And best of all, Snapfish makes it so easy!

There are two easy ways to create your Snapfish gifts...online from your computer, or through their app on your phone.

First, you choose your project.

Snapfish offers so many ideas for photo gifts!

I decided to make my Mom a photo collage mug, a canvas collage featuring pictures of just her and me, and a jigsaw puzzle especially designed for Grandma.

I just clicked on the square and chose my photo to insert. Snapfish makes it so easy!

When you pick your project, you also pick out the layout of the pictures with the easy to use templates. Then you upload your images from wherever they are saved on your computer or from the camera roll on your phone.

I really liked that I could play around with where my images would be inserted.

Once the images are uploaded to your project, you can put them into any arrangement you prefer.

I also love how Snapfish shows you a finished example of your project!

So cool! Snapfish showed me exactly how the mug I designed would look!

If your project needs some text, you just click on that section and type in what you want to say.

Then save your project, and check out!

It really is that easy!

How The Gifts Turn Out

Snapfish delivered my Mother’s Day Gifts right on time and kept me up to date through the entire process.

I was so excited when the boxes arrived and couldn’t wait to see the finished projects!

I know my Mom will love this mug.

I opened the mug first….and the minute I saw it, I was thrilled! My mom is going to love using this mug! My husband commented how much he liked it too! (hint hint, that may be something I make for him for Father’s Day!).

A 500 piece puzzle! This should keep Grandma busy!

Next, I checked out the jigsaw puzzle. My Mom loves puzzles, so I think this will be a lot of fun for her to put together…especially when she sees the pieces with the faces of her grandchildren.

I’m not sure if my Mom has seen all of these pictures. I hope she likes it!

Finally, I unboxed the collage that I had made with pictures of my Mom and me. From the time she appeared in a QVC segment with me to our trip to London, these are all wonderful memories of our times together. Without this collage, these pictures just sat in a folder on my computer. I’m so happy to bring them to life and even more, to share something so special with my Mom.

Gifts Without Photos

If the idea of uploading photos is still a little intimidating to you, Snapfish has a wonderful assortment of personalized gifts that don’t require photos. You’ll find initial mugs and cute kitchen items (like the images below) that you can personalize with a name instead of a photo.

Gifts In A “Snap”fish

My first experience with Snapfish has been excellent. Their site is easy to navigate, I loved the variety of projects I could create, and I’m looking ahead to Father’s Day already!

Whether you’re looking for something extra special for the Mom in your life, or just want to preserve some of the best photos on your phone in a way to enjoy them everyday, I think you’ll find that Snapfish is an easy and affordable way to do so.

Remember, use promo code JUSTJILL at checkout to take 70% off your order ($25 min. before taxes/shipping.)

I can’t wait to see my Mom’s face when she opens these gifts!
