Family photo and frame- Moms love to display photos of their loved ones (or at least I do!). Putting a photo in a frame is an easy and classic gift! I love this "family" frame:

Family photo session - Better yet, if you have a little more budget available, how about a gift certificate for a family photographer. I love to splurge on family photos every few years.

Journal - My husband got me the Mom's One Line A Day journal when my first son was born and I love this concept!! It's calendar style with room for five years worth of memories. You jot down a quick sentence about what your family did that day or what milestones your kids met that day. It's so cool to see how things change year after year!

Candles - I was never really into candles until I became a mom, and now I go through them like crazy!
