How appropriate is it that the season that brings us new life is also the season in which we give thanks to our moms? This spring, consider foregoing the usual bath products and bouquets in favor of a Mother’s Day gift that lasts far longer and truly speaks to her heart: a special Mother’s Day frame.
Custom framed art, ephemera, and mementos each offer a unique way to show someone that you love and cherish who they are, and we can’t think of anyone more deserving of such a heartfelt gift than Mom. Freeze a shared memory or interest in time by custom framing artwork, a personal photograph, or a souvenir and transforming it into wall-ready home decor that Mom will love looking at for years to come.
Scroll for some Mother’s Day frame ideas to spark your own imagination. Don't wait on this! Our deadline for placing an order for mom requesting a tube or mailer is April 16th, and any art that needs to be framed in time for Mother's Day must be in the mail by April 23rd.
FRAME: A FAVORITE PLACE
Does Mom live far from home, or does she have a favorite vacation destination? Custom frame a map or postcard of a place near and dear to her heart.
We love this custom map of Harbour Island by Susie Bettenhausen in our White Gallery Frame, commissioned by Chassity of Look Linger Love and Well & Wonder Collective, and photographed by Gray Benko.
FRAME: AN OLD FLAME
Do you and Mom share a favorite café, or do you often reminisce about a special meal? Celebrate that memory by custom framing a matchbook from the restaurant in your special Mother’s Day frame.
This one’s from Le Coucou in NYC, custom framed by us in an extra-special deep-set mat and our White Gallery Frame.
FRAME: A SHAREABLE STORY
We love the look of a custom framed book, whether it be a beloved classic from your mother’s private collection or a favorite children’s book she once read to you.
Our Max Plexibox frame is the perfect option for getting that vintage page-turner off that dusty shelf and onto Mom’s wall. Greta, our Director of Content, selected our Max Plexibox in Natural Linen for this early edition of Romeo & Juliet, toted by her mother around the streets of Paris in the '70s.
FRAME: AN ART PRINT SHE'LL LOVE DAILY
You can’t go wrong with abstract art in Mom’s favorite color, which can then brighten up her office—or any room in the house.

FRAME: A VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH
Make her tear up with vintage family photos brought to new light in your special Mother’s Day frame selection.
These vintage family photos (belonging to Simply Framed Founder Dara Segal) custom framed by us are an elevated twist on a classic Mother’s Day gift.
FRAME: A HEARTWARMING PORTRAIT
Of course, a more recent photo works just as well! Our simple Print & Frame service is the only online destination you need to know when it comes to shopping for Mother’s Day.

FRAME: A FEMINIST PHOTO
If none of the ideas above strike the right chord for you, here’s another: Custom frame a photograph or piece of art that celebrates ALL womankind, and that you know your mom will love.
We love the awesome female energy captured in Peace by Jamie Street Photography. Here, it's shown framed in our White Gallery Frame for Jaime Panoff.
