It's The Thought That Counts

When it comes to buying gifts, there's an old saying that I am constantly reminded of: "It's the thought that counts." When Mom is the recipient of the gift and the thought that is supposed to go into said gift, this becomes even more true. Allow me to add a spin on that statement: "When shopping for Mom, it's the amount of thought that counts." Take a moment and reflect on everything that mothers do, and you will see that Mom deserves so much more than a cheap card and a dozen roses... yet again.

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and as such, all of us loving, respectable, never-had-a-bratty-teenaged-moment (ahem) daughters need to start thinking about something special to do for dear old Mom. Whether you're the creative type or the budget-conscious type, Shutterfly has something for you.
