What was even better, was I got to be there when it was created, shared in my children's joy and take some photographs as a momento. Before my plate was fired, I had Helen, the owner at Glazey Days, write my children's names and the date around the plate edge. They loved doing footprints and I love having their cute little feet immortalised on ceramic.
Another idea of an enjoyable activity and a lasting momento is a family portrait session.
Or why not organise something for Mum that she'd love and take your own camera to create a momento afterwards? A variation on the traditional Mother's Day lunch might be Afternoon tea or perhaps a day out to her favourite location would be much appreciated. I think the key is, not feeling pressured to do what everyone else suggests you should, but what you know your Mum will truly enjoy and is personal to her.
