If you didn’t know already, the one thing mom wants is photos with her kids. Too often the moms in our lives are the ones taking the photos of their kids, but rarely are they actually in them. Yes, they can do selfies with their kids, but those don’t always turn out the best.

Mom wants beautiful images with her babies to show off to her friends and hang on the wall of her home. That is why Flytographer is one of the best Mother’s Day gifts available.

Book a 30 or 60 minute (or more) session with a local Flytographer in your area or while you are on your next vacation to give mom the gift she really wants. These photographers are locals who know the best spots to capture the precious moments with your kids at the perfect time of day. Just make sure you tell mom ahead of time so she can get her tears of joy out of the way before the photo shoot. She will definitely want to look her best for this gift!

Umbra Hangit Photo Display

Now that mom has all of these new photos with her kids, she will need somewhere to hang them. We love this Umbra Hangit Photo Display for showing off life’s little moments in a fun and carefree way. Mom can easily hang up new photos as the kids grow and keep her favorites to look at every day. This is the perfect gift for her office, bedroom or living room.

Watercolor Travel Journal Kit

If you have a creative mom on your hands, chances are she likes to do a little sketching or draw a few doodles. Get her a watercolor pencil set and watercolor sketchbook to take on her travels. This way she will always have her art supplies with her. Now she won’t have to use an old receipt from her purse to draw that Roman ruin.

Mother's Day Gift Kindle Paperwhite

Amazon Kindle Unlimited

Vacation is sometimes the only time that mom gets to read, so don’t limit what she has access too. If she doesn’t have a Kindle Paperwhite already, get her one. Then add on Amazon Kindle Unlimited, which gives her access to thousands of books. Paper books add a lot of weight to suitcases and purses. This way mom can now have a tiny tablet to store all of her books whether she takes it on vacation, to the doctor’s office waiting room or to the playground.

Hydroflask Water bottle

Hydration is key when you are a mom, no matter how old your babies are. Getting enough water is a serious problem for many mothers. Having a fun and useful water bottle can help you fight dehydration when you are on the go. Hydroflask can keep cold water cold for hours, even when you leave the bottle in a hot car all day. This bottle has been a lifesaver for us in the past. And yes, our kids like to steal it too. So maybe get mom two or three to share.

Many thanks to Flytographer for providing three 30-minute sessions for our giveaway as part of the #flytographermom campaign. As always, my opinions are my own. When they aren’t you will be the first to know.
