Creative ideas for Mother's Day slideshows

  1. Celebrate all the moms in your lifeWhile the most common Mother's Day gift is from a child to a mother, Mother's Day is an opportunity to celebrate every mom. Make a Mother's Day video from a husband to his wife, from the kids for Grandma, or for a friend who's a mom. Create a Mother's Day gift from mother to daughter or daughter to mother. Or, for the first-time mother, make a video about the first moments between mom and baby. The possibilities are endless!
  2. Take a trip back in timeWhen making a video for Mom, get nostalgic and use photos from the past. Scroll back through your Facebook or Instagram feed to find old photos of newer moms. Find old photos in your Camera Roll or on your desktop. Or take trip back in time by flipping through old scrapbooks and photo albums. Snap a photo of your favorite old photos and upload them to Animoto to include in your video.
  3. Add a handmade touch to your videoA Mother’s Day video with your own photos and video clips is very special and personal. But you can make it feel even more personalized and crafty by adding a handmade touch. Try including scanned or photographed drawings from the kids or a handwritten message. You can even create a handwritten sign to hold on camera while you say something special to Mom.
  4. Interview the kidsAn interview with children makes for a cute keepsake the whole family will enjoy for years to come. Here are a few questions to ask the kids: What do you love the most about your mom? If your mom was a superhero, who would she be? How are you like your mom? What does your mom do at work? What does your mom do for fun? What’s something fun that you and your mom could do together?

Tips and tricks for creating a Mother’s Day video gift

  1. Selecting photos and video clipsWhen it comes to creating a video for Mom, family photos and video clips can add a nice personal touch. A Mother’s Day video that includes personal images makes for a very special gift. Be sure to choose photos you know Mom will love. You can add old photos that you've scanned or photos from social media or your desktop. You can use JPG, PNG, or GIF files, and we recommend they be around 2000 pixels wide. For video files, HD 1080p or 720p files will result in the best-looking Mother's Day video.
  2. Choosing your colors and fontSelect a color palette and font for your video that feels festive. Pinks, purples, and pastels are often the colors people associate with Mother’s Day. But think about your recipient and choose colors you know she’ll love. Animoto offers a variety of colors and fonts. You’ll find them under the “Style” tab in the toolbar when you create your Mother’s Day video.
  3. Finding the right music trackLast but not least, set the mood with music. The music you choose for your Mother’s Day video can take your video to the next level. With an Animoto subscription, you'll gain access to a library of licensed music for any occasion. Filter by mood, genre, and more to find a song for your video. If you select a song with lyrics, make sure the message feels right for your recipient.
