14 Canvas Print Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Trying to think of something to give Mum on her special day?

Photos on canvas are always a great gift that will hang on her wall and remind her, every day, that she is special and loved. Canvas prints also make a home look beautiful and they are usually a reminder of a happy event or time. These are all great reasons why Mum will love them.

We’ve put together these 14 canvas print ideas to help you decide which photo to use for her special Mother’s Day canvas.

1. Portrait of her Children

This is always a winner with Mums. They love pictures of their kids and reminders of those special family moments!

Whether they’re current photos of the children or snaps from when they were younger, these are great for any wall in the house!

2. Portrait of Her

You can pick a photo that she likes of herself, or have her pose for a photo just for the occasion. Or you could get a professional photographer to take a portrait photo.

The key here is to chose a photo of your Mum that she likes!

3. Mum doing one of her Favourite Things

4. Picture of something she Loves

5. A Family portrait.

A photo of all of her family is always something a mother will enjoy seeing on her walls. You might already have a photo that she likes, or you could take one especially for Mother’s Day.

6. Words…

I heart U message
You can write “We Love You” in the sand, or on paper, or a black board. Anywhere really. Then photograph it and get it printed on canvas to hang on her wall.

Simple but something your mother will cherish for years to come.

7. Photograph the children holding a mother’s Day message.

You can take a photo of something (or someone) and then photoshop words such as “Happy Mother’s Day” onto the photo.

Eziprint can do this for you if you don’t have a photoshop-type programme. Once it’s done, have the whole image put onto canvas.

14. Photograph a picture or card a child has made and put the artwork on canvas.

The child will love seeing their art on the wall and mum will be amazed.
