Mother’s Day is right around the corner. If you haven’t created a video yet for the moms in your life, it’s not too late. We’ve put together a list of 5 quick and easy video ideas that you can create before Mother’s Day.


Some of the videos below were started with our video templates and customized, though you can start from scratch. Find inspiration in our templates or think about Mom’s favorite colors or genres of music when thinking about how to set up your video.

Ready to start? Let’s dive in!

Idea #1: Take Mom on a walk down memory lane

Share the moments that are most important to both of you in a thoughtful slideshow. Go through old photos of you and your mom through the years. Look for big milestones and special events, like holidays, but don’t forget to include a few everyday moments, too. Then upload them all and add a few words showing how you feel. Not sure how to get started? Try out our Mother’s Day Greeting template for some inspiration.

Idea #2: Send a video card from the kids

Get your children involved in creating your Mother's Day gift. Ask them questions about their mother and record the answers. Edit the text to include their thoughts, then drag and drop photos of them with their mom, grandma, or any other mother-figure. All you’ll need is your phone, a list of questions, and your kids. Use our Mother's Day Card template to create a pen-and-paper card look.

Idea #3: Show appreciation for your significant other

Let the mother of your children know you appreciate all she does. Celebrate her on her special day by sharing images and video clips taken throughout your relationship. The video below was started using our Birthday Card template, which you can easily adapt to this type of Mother’s Day greeting.

Idea #4: Send love to Grandma

Video is a wonderful way to show a grandmother how much you care, even if you can’t be there in person. Add images of all her grandkids for a brag-worthy gift she can watch again and again. Make sure to send her the video as an email attachment or tag her in the video on social media so her friends can see it too. Completely customize your video by selecting Start from Scratch on the template selector page.

Idea #5: Announce a pregnancy

Let friends and family know you’re celebrating some good news this Mother’s Day! Post a quick video showing off your baby belly or photos of adorable baby gear. Add text that announces your pregnancy and shares your due date, then share on social. Try using the Personal Announcement template as your starting point.
