Animation Film (Video animation)
Got a little director or screenwriter in you? Now’s your time to turn that sweet story into a short animation film that’s perfect for Mother’s Day. Go 2D or 3D with a plot that touches hearts.
Card (Graphic Design)
While this is an obvious one, there are infinite designs you can create. The card can have a comic illustration of a special life event, calligraphy or typography for a simple and minimalist design.
Illustrations are among the most personalized Mother’s Day gifts. This can be printed and framed, making it a memorable decorative piece. The illustration can be a mother’s portrait or that of her kids.
This tried and tested, good old fashioned message that hits right the spot will do its magic on Mother’s Day. You can write something funny or quirky, or something sentimental. This can be printed on a greeting card, tumbler, pouch, canvas bag, mobile phone case, or any item that moms use daily.
Song (Music Production/Sound Design)
We’re not talking about the ordinary mixtape, but a song or a mashup. It could be an RnB remix of the top momma songs of the 90’s, specifically edited to boost the voice and instruments. To make it even more special, write your own original composition.
As with any creative skill, the possibilities for Mother’s Day gifts are endless. You can create these gifts as a passion project to add to your portfolio. If you haven’t signed up yet and haven’t started building your Freelancer portfolio, it’s a great way to start now.
