4 Ways to Give Mom the Gift of Memories for Mother’s Day

Friday, May 4th, 2012

Moms always work hard to create family memories so this Mother’s Day, create some special memories from her.  Custom photobooks, cards, and digital gadgets for preserving memories will be treasured.  Here are just a few of my favorites.

Highlight the important memories with mom in a custom photo book from Snapfish.  Snapfish’s service is so easy to use that even your kids can help in the creation. Upload photos and let them drag and drop them into place, add text, and custom backgrounds to make a special gift that she’ll treasure.

Send mom an individualized greeting card with the new Treat by Shutterfly.  With over 4,500 fully customizable card designs, including 300 from Hallmark, users can create personalized cards using personal photos and custom messages in only minutes.  Cards range from $1.99-2.99 each but for a limited time, every new customer gets their first card for free.  Order before May 8 for Mother’s Day delivery.

Capture precious memories with a compact DSLR like the Olympus PM-1. Those looking to upgrade their point and shoot but don’t want the bulk of traditional DSLRs will appreciate Olympus’ PM-1 line that features compact bodies that don’t compromise on picture quality.  With the ability to interchange lenses, capture close up stills or far away action shots with a zoom lens this easy to hold camera features a slim body and lightweight size compared to its competitors. Photos are crisp and built in image stabilizer helps eliminate the shakiness that is inherent when capturing video. If you’ve ever wanted to capture a still while shooting video, the Olympus PM-1 allows you to do so and also features a wide variety of cool effects.  Shoot right in sepia and brighten colors as you shoot with Pop Art!

Put the power of editing in the palm of her hand with an Olympus LS-20M that is compact enough to carry in any bag to capture all of life’s amazing moments.  Edit on the spot using for different filters for fun effects, stream a soccer game to a far away grandparent or a dance recital via UStream anywhere you have an internet connection, and enjoy high definition video in an amazingly small package. Controls are easy to maneuver when keeping your eye on the action but in case your hand wavers, the built in electronic image stabilizer helps eliminate the shakes. The action gets even closer with 4x digital zoom while the autofocus lens keeps images crystal clear.
