For my mom, there are two things in life she loves. One is making memories with her grandchildren. The other, sharing time with our whole extended family-her sisters, their families, and her mom. A close third, is photos of all these memories! So, there’s nothing like a photo gift to make my mom’s day, and we all know by now how much I love Shutterfly! Seriously, anything from Shutterfly is my “go to” when creating photo gifts for anyone-especially my mom. She loves reliving the memories we share as a family through pictures. So, when I saw these photo cubes from Shutterfly, I knew they’d be the perfect memento for her when we celebrated her 60th birthday. They’re sweet, simple, and I like that you can add so many pictures to them. You can even add text!
Since I automatically upload all my photos to my Shutterfly account after an event, I knew the pictures I wanted would be on my account and I wouldn’t have to search for them. Some of our best memories this summer were from our Disney trip and our trip to Surfside Beach on our way home to Ohio. So, I chose photos from both of those events for the Photo Block.
Here are the photos I chose to add to the Photo Block. Of course, they are pictures of my mom’s FAVORITE people, her grandchildren.
This was the first photo cube I had made from Shutterfly. I had seen one, as my sister was gifted one with the birth of their son. It caught my eye when I was at her house, and I tucked it in the back of my mind to create something like it for my mom’s birthday, or another celebration. I was so pleased with it! The photos came out smooth-not grainy or anything. I added all the photos I thought I might want to the photo cube editing screen:
And then I went through and chose the best ones! It wasn’t easy to choose! Of course, I ended up adding ALL pictures of our kids, I mean, my mom LOVES her grandkids! Just a quick preview….. and it was done. My mom absolutely loved it!
Even though we gifted this to my mom for her birthday, they would make an easy and sweet Christmas gift. Also, since you can add text, a nice Mother’s Day gift or for a new mom and dad celebrating their little bundle of joy.
