8 Ways To Thank Mom Without A Hallmark Card

Remember back when you used to make your own cards for Mother’s Day (and just about any other card-giving holiday)? Moms love the sentiment of a handmade gift. Unfortunately, with a 60-hours-a-week job and a social life, you don’t have time to spend with crayons and construction paper. Good thing there are digital (and equally affordable!) ways to share the homemade feels with Mom. 

You take photos and videos all year long — heck, you've probably taken photos of old family photos, too (probably on Thursdays). Gather up all those memories and use them to create a slideshow, video, or photo book your mom can enjoy. You can even print them out at home or professionally. We've rounded up eight options to consider. 

So, just because you're short on time (and cash) doesn't mean you can't send Mom a thoughtful message this Mother's Day. The good news: No matter what you create, she'll appreciate it more than having to stand next to you while you wear four strategically placed strips of black duct tape. Oh, Miley.
