Mother's Day Gifts: Show Your Love with Personalised Presents

Mother's Day Gifts: Show Your Love with Personalized Presents

Are you prepared for May 14th? Mother’s Day is nearly upon us, and this year, it’s about the personal touch. Mums are always the first to say, “It’s the thought that counts,” but that doesn’t mean you can’t knock it out of the park with a gift that’s both thoughtful and as easy as the click of a button.

The best gifts are those that show you’ve really thought about the person you’re buying for, which is what makes personalised gifts such a great choice. With a huge range of personalised & photo gifting options for every mum, you’ll find everything you need at Warehouse Stationery. 

Explore our handpicked collection of Mother's Day gifts or keep reading for our top picks of gifts we think she’ll love. 

Personalised Mug


Whether she’s a coffee, tea or hot chocolate drinker, it’s the perfect time of year to give her a new mug, complete with a photo that’ll make her smile. Whether at home or work, a personalised mug will remind her of you whenever she stops to recharge. For that extra special touch, add a few sachets of her favourite coffee or some chocolate bars to make her downtime a little sweeter. 

Shop the classic Personalised Photo Mug that remains one of our best-selling personalised gifts, or for something a little different, try the Personalised Colour Changing Mug with heat activation. 

DIY Photo Book


If you have a little extra time between now and Mother’s Day, why not put it to good use and create a DIY photo book full of unforgettable moments? A photo book is the perfect way to capture all your favourite memories in one place and is a gift she’ll treasure forever. 

Collate all those family photos into a beautiful book she can keep on the coffee table and show off to friends.  Choose from a soft, hard or personalised cover, then upload your choice of images and let your artistic self free with a selection of borders, backgrounds and text. But don’t delay! Delivery on photobooks is 5-7 working days, so get your order in quickly. 

Personalised canvas


If you don’t have time to order a photo album but have a great picture you know your mum would love, a personalised canvas is the perfect choice. Available in a wide range of sizes and styles, you can select the option that best suits your needs.

From traditional printed canvas to our cost-effective faux canvas, which is ready in as little as 24 hours, the choice is yours. For something a little different, explore alternative wall decor options, including HD metal prints, wall decals and even weatherproof corrugated iron prints for outdoor use. 

Other ways to make it a special day:

Small but special:

A thoughtful gift doesn't have to cost the earth, so whether you’re helping the kids shop for mum or just on a tight budget, choose a low-cost but high-impact gift. Alongside bigger gifts, we offer a range of smaller customised presents for mums that still allow you to add a personal touch. 

At under $5, this round photo keyring will serve as a daily reminder that you’re thinking of her. Or, add to her magnet collection with a stunning porcelain magnet with a snapshot of a special memory or moment. 

Say it with a card

If the mum in your life is a “words of affirmation” person, a well-written card will say much more than a gift ever could. By writing down your appreciation, you can let her know just how much impact she’s had on your life. But don’t just pick any old card off the shelf! Turn your message into a personalised gift with a photo greeting card. 

With single and double-sided options in a range of sizes, a personalised gift card turns your heartfelt words into a keepsake she’ll want to keep for a lifetime. 

How to choose an image for a personalised gift

Choosing a customised gift for Mother’s Day is half the battle; the other half is making sure you pick the right image. Here are a few tips to help you select the perfect print. 

Remember who you’re buying for

Before picking an image, put yourself in the recipient's shoes. While you might love that silly photo, is that what will bring your mum the most joy? Or would she prefer something more polished she can proudly show her friends? When it comes to gift buying, it’s an easy trap to start shopping for yourself, so remind yourself who you’re buying for (and then treat yourself to your own personalised gift afterwards).

Consider the colour

If you’re giving a personalised gift such as a canvas, it’s important to consider the recipient's decor. While a bright and colourful picture of the grandkids may bring a smile to her face at first, if it doesn’t sit alongside her home decor well, she may struggle to find a place to hang it. Make things easy by choosing an image that complements her style. 

Use a high-resolution image

When it comes to personalised and photo gifting, image quality is incredibly important. If your picture has a low resolution, it will print blurry and out of focus. Instead, use a high-resolution image that will produce a clear result. Our fotofinish Mobile App will let you know if your photo is up to scratch before you order.

Double-check the content

Before hitting that “order” button, make sure to check any grammar and spelling (and then check again). Nothing spoils a perfect gift like an accidental typo, so take the time to proofread your writing.
