Mother’s Day Gift Idea: America at Home

We are just two weeks away from Mother’s Day (13 days to be exact—where did April go?), so it’s not a bad idea to start planning the gifts, the breakfast in bed, the truck loads of roses, etc. And here is one more totally unique gift idea for ya…

America at Home is a beautiful book of photographs of American families from all over the country. Published in partnership with Ikea, this book contains over 250 photographs by100 leading photojournalists. The book’s intro is written by Matt Groening of Simpsons’ fame, and is followed by a series of thought- provoking essays about home by noted
writers, including Amy Tan, Dominique Browning, Terry Teachout, Richard
Rodriguez, and David Pogue.

But here’s the absolute, coolest part…the part that will bring tears to a mother’s eyes: for $39.95, you can upload your OWN family photo to customize the cover of the book, putting yourselves among the pictures of this extraordinary photo essay. It really speaks to the point that we all have special yet relatable moments that can resonate with anyone who cherishes their family and their home.

Thanks to PhotoJoJo for the link!

    It should really have ended up being the icing on the cake but in its place Simon Cowell’s birthday surprise for Nicole Scherzinger took the biscuit. The sardonic talent tv program don waited right until the last minute of the second day involving Seattle auditions to provide his fellow judge her goodies.
