Looking for photo gifts for Mom now that Mother’s Day is approaching?

Each year, I struggle with finding the right gift for Mom. She loves her granddaughters and likes to have photos of them, for sure. But she enjoys receiving other stuff too. I’m always on the lookout for gifts that do double duty – gifts that include photos and serve another purpose also.

That’s where the Mpix Keepsake Box comes in. At 5×7, it’s the perfect size to store jewelry, mementos, photos, candy, or anything else the moms in your life might like. It holds up to 200 photos (5×7 or smaller) if you wanted to fill it up as part of your gift. You could even print new photos for it each year until Mom has a boxful to show off.

I chose the Spring Awakening theme. It’s black inside, and there is plenty of room to hold a large bag of chocolate kisses!

The box is sturdy cardboard, wrapped in the design of your choice – over 50 different styles to choose from! It weighs more than I’d expect. The sides are thick, substantial, and look like they will hold up well.

Designing your custom creation is drag-and-drop simple. Upload your photo directly to the box design interface.

You can add your own text to many of the boxes. On the design I chose, the characters were limited, and I wasn’t able to include our names. I suspect that the character limit changes depending on the box design.

The box closes with a hidden magnet – this is a great feature that kicks up the wow factor several notches.

These boxes cost $55 and qualify for free shipping.

Like anything Mpix creates, the print quality is exactly what you would hope! The photo is printed on a satin finish photo paper. You can even add on their retouching service if you don’t have time to edit!

This keepsake box from Mpix is one of those gifts that I’m super excited about giving. You know how sometimes you’re more excited about the reaction of the people who will receive your gifts than you are about the gifts you might receive? That’s how I’m feeling right now!

Mpix has plenty of other options for Mother’s Day. These accordion minis were a big hit in our family a few years back!
