What kind of budget are you looking at? Does she have any hobbies other than photography? Does she collect anything? My first thought was a really nice vintage camera, but that may not be her cup of tea.

We got my mom a custom embroidered throw blanket with a professional photo of her dogs.  Maybe your mom has a photo she’s particularly proud of…not wedding related that you can have turned into a blanket?

Maybe a gift certificate for a pamper day and new camera stuff…like a new lens?

I love the idea of getting her camera gear, but that may feel like a “work thing”. You know her best so you can decide if it’s a good fit.

In general, moms like the mushy heartfelt gift. Perhaps you can make her a scrapbook and write a little note with each photo about what she’s taught you in life or what you remember about that scene. Bawl fest!

I am insane and decided to make a quilt for each of the sets of parents. I have made zero ever and I have 10 weeks. Wish me luck!
