I am not the only one who goes crazy taking photos of my girls' every moves.  Hehehe.  My parents, too, are guilty of filled camera memory cards and photo albums and boxes filled with photos waiting to find a home.  Because they are recent grandparents -- I had Savannah in 2010, followed by my oldest brother having a baby the month before Arabella was born in 2011, and then my middle brother just welcomed his first son in Feb. of this year.  So, my parents are going through the New Grandparents Syndrome, and wanting to capture and enjoy all the babies/toddlers firsts. :-)

Because of our love for taking photos of the kids, I made a point to pick up a brag book each holiday/birthday and fill it with recent photos of the girls, to give to my parents.  And, this Mother's Day is no exception.  While I usually find brag books at local retailers on sale, I wanted to surprise my Mom with a fancy brag book this year, as I know she likes to pull out her other brag books and show off the grandchildren every chance she gets. :-)  My search led me to Treasures, an online shop offering fine luxury gifts for men, women and even children.  Their unique product offering includes leather journals, leather photo albums,  wine glasses, frames, and even leather brag books, all from a variety of brands.  The one brag book that caught my eye was the one from Weston Leather.

I was excited when I reached out the folks at to inquire about this brag book, as they wanted to send one for me to review, as well as one to giveaway to one lucky reader (scroll down to enter this flash giveaway, for a chance to win and receive this brag book in time for Mother's Day!)  I ended up choosing the this brag book, as I knew my Mom would like the color.

Like I said, I have boxes and boxes of photos of the girls, as well as memory cards and online photo storage sites.  So, not having enough photos to fill a book was not an issue.  Instead, I found myself weeding through all the photos, trying to choose the best ones to fill the pages of this brag book, which I will surprise my Mom with on Mother's Day.  I ended up spending the past few nights this week filling the pages of the brag book, and by the time I finished last night and flipped the pages, I wished I had ordered another book for myself, as I loved the sleek look of the book, and how all my photos fit nicely inside.  I also liked how the brag book was easy to store in a bag, as I tried it out in my diaper bag, to make sure my mother wouldn't have issues taking it in and out of her handbag, like some of the other bulky brag books we had both picked up in the past.

I know that when my Mom sees this brag book from Weston Leather, she will fall in love with this classic looking photo book.  And, then when she opens it and sees 20 pages filled with the girls' photos, her heart will melt as she will see how fast they are growing up, as well as the photos I included of her with them at Christmas and Easter.  Out of all the gifts I could give her, I know she will like this the most, as she loves looking at her four grandchildrens' photos when she can't be with them, and showing them off to her friends. :-)

So, if you are still trying to decide what to get your Mom this Mother's Day, why not browse the unique gift ideas at today.  You will be amazed at all the wonderful keepsake gifts available -- all at reasonable prices. :-)
