Pictures & Memories

Moms love pictures of their family. (At least I know my mom and mother-in-law do!) It’s a foolproof gift idea that is very personal and everlasting.

It’s a great way for her to bring back all the great memories she has.

And there are many ways you can give the gift of pictures:

  • Put a special picture in a “mom” frame. You can get the frames anywhere that sells frames, they have a “mother” or “mom” theme to them.
  • Make a collage of pictures of you and her and frame it.
  • Fill a photo album with pictures of you over the years and different memories from baby to now.
  • Personalized family calendar with pictures of the family each month, and you can even make the pictures correspond with the months. Like, for December have a family Christmas picture or winter picture, etc.
  • Locket necklace with pictures inside. Make sure to pick some of mom’s favorite pictures.
  • Buy her a digital key chain, this way you can load a bunch of pictures on it, and mom can change or add to them.
  • Create a scrapbook of all the great memories over the years. You can do this by hand, or have a simple one made through stores, like Walmart.


Jewelry is always a great 50th birthday gifts for mom, well for any woman really! It’s always a good idea to make the jewelry you buy her a little personal – mom’s always like sentiment in the gifts.

  • Charm bracelet with charms for “sister” “mother”, “grandmother” “friend”, etc to all those that apply to your mom. Or you can have nicknames she uses engraved in charms, like “nana”, “mama” etc.
  • Gold jewelry – gold being the color of the 50th milestone, this makes a great thing to get mom. Have the jewelry engraved to say something special to mom.
  • Mother/Daughter matching rings or necklaces.
  • Ring with the birthstones of all her children.
  • Necklace with pendants of all the children’s names

You can have her initials or name put on things like:
