An Ode to Mom: Nothing lights up a Mom’s world by hearing how much her family loves her. A beautiful way to tell Mom how much each family member cares is to create a book filled with special messages, poems and pictures of the family member.

April 16, 2013 at 11:19 pm

We love photo books, especially gifting them to mothers! However it is possible to get stuck while thinking of what story your photo book will tell. So we asked our staff and here are our top favorites:

Walk down memory lane  

Tell your mother’s life story and create a biography for her! Gather pictures of her childhood, teen years, working years, getting married and, of course, being a mother. (You can scan the older pictures and use the digital images) A fantastic tribute to moms! An added bonus, while gathering old photos you may learn some  new things about your mother!

Is your mother the resident Tarla Dalal? She loves to cook and spends her time in the kitchen coming up with delicious things for everyone to enjoy? Make her a recipe book with her favorite dishes, your favorite dishes or even both. You can add fun stories and memories that your family associates with those dishes. Celebrate her culinary skills with this one!

 Amazing Mom

Fathers at ZoomIn came up with the idea of a photo book that highlights, not only their wives’  achievements, but also recognizes the small things she does everyday. Gather up pictures of her proud moments and click some pictures as she goes about her daily tasks. You’ll have a great gift for the busy mother who does so much for her family.

Mother’s Day is May 12, 2013!

April 15, 2013 at 4:52 am

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 12th, 2013. Mother’s day is a day celebrated to honor the mothers in our lives. We should celebrate moms every day, however a particular day ensures that we reflect on all that our moms have done for us. Ask any mother and she’ll tell you that she loves being a mother – she cherishes her moments with her kids and would gladly give up everything for them. That is why Mothers’ Day is so important. It may slip by us to appreciate our mothers on a daily basis, but on this day, we can all unite to celebrate the one person who defines the meaning of the word ‘love’ – our very own mother. It is certainly a favorite occasion at ZoomIn!  image

Most countries celebrate Mother’s Day on second Sunday in the Month of May. While there is no direct connection to ancient traditions, it’s believed that in ancient Greece, the people paid tribute to Rhea, the Mother of the Gods, each spring. However its Miss Jarvis from the USA that got the day its actual date.  Miss Jarvis was very close to her mother , who passed away in May 1905.  Anna missed her mother very much and felt that children should appreciate their mother’s more while they’re still alive. Anna hoped Mother’s Day would increase respect and love and strengthen family bonds. Her efforts finally led to US President Woodrow Wilson designating the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. This tradition of celebrating Mothers Day and paying tribute to mothers spread across several countries over the years.

This is the first in a series of posts that we will run for Mother’s Day. In the coming weeks, we will have several posts coming up.
