Sending your mom a real card for Mother’s Day: What a novel idea!

With all the digital ways you can say “Happy Mother’s Day” to the special mom in your life this Sunday, sending an actual paper card is an extra special treat. And that’s why this card made me laugh. Yes, I love texting and Facetiming as much as the next person, but you know, there’s just something about getting a handwritten note, and even better when it has a little self-depricating humor, like this Not Sent from my iPhone greeting card. In just a few words, it says lots of nice things, like that you took the time to write with a...

Personalized battery chargers blend practical with sentimental for Mother’s Day

Nothing says I love you like, please don’t let your phone die when I’m trying to reach you because it really freaks me out.  Which is why I think it’s so clever that Shutterfly has launched the first personalized battery chargers that I’ve seen. Upload a photo or design using one of a dozen templates — you can even connect right to Facebook, Instagram and more — then add text if you want, though I’m a bit of a purist that way and tend to stick with photos. You’ll have a very cool Mother’s Day gift for the tablet or phone-loving mom on the...

A Mother’s Day taco! Well, a cord taco, that is.

We’ve been fans of the cord taco ever since we first discovered it awhile back, but they’ve cleverly whipped them up in gorgeous metallic leather (hello!) and packaged them in Mother’s Day bundles for the tech-loving mom. And we’re all over them. The original cord taco and cordito (hungry yet?) are genius little handmade leather gadgets that really do help keep you more organized by keeping all those cords and chargers neatly wrapped up in your tote or laptop bag. But instead of the black and brown leather that they were previously available in, you can snatch them up in...

Printable papercraft photo frames that make us go, wow.

No sooner did we round up some cool Mother’s Day gifts for photographers, that I stumble upon this very cool idea: printable papercraft camera frames. As in, printables that you cut and fold and when you’re through, they look like cool vintage cameras. All you need is some card stock, and probably a good sharp X-Acto blade to put them together. While they’re kind of neat on their own, I love that they are designed to display a favorite photo. If the wonderful colors and designs in the shop seem a wee bit different than the ubiquitous mint green chevron (Etsy’s unofficial color of 2014),...
