    I guess it depends on your mom. I know my mom wouldn’t necessarily appreciate either of those so it’s hard for me to say.

    The video idea sounds so great.  IMO, I think she would rather watch you telling her how much she means to you rather than reading it.  Somehow the video seems more personal, if that makes sense.

    Is it too much trouble to do both, or would it be redundant? I’d have loved to have gotten either from MY daughters!

    The journal has more of a keepsake quality, and a lot of moms really like something they can hold in their hands. What an awesome idea, either way, for a gift, though.

    I actually like the journal more.  Handwritten things read as both personal and thoughtful, and in this day and age are becoming something of a rarity (which would make the journal all the more special).  Also, I envision your mom pulling out the journal and reading from it in years to come, and even passing it down to your children.  I don’t see the same happening with a more intangible series of videos.

    I also vote for the journal.  if you do it right, it could last decades. 

    wheras the video could one day (after many years) become a format that is obselete, so unless somebody makes the effort to keep re-digitizing it, then one day people won’t be able to watch it any more.
