An amazing group video surprise for Mom in 5 easy steps!

The Celebrate Team

It’s time to celebrate moms everywhere! Your mom is probably one of the most important people in your life. Through all the heartbreak, tears, and laughter, your mom stuck with you the whole way through. So what’s the easiest way to show her that you love her? By grabbing a couple of family members and making a quick video gift message together.

What’s a Video Gift Message?

A video gift message is a personalized way for you to tell your mom how much you appreciate her, even over long distances. At Celebrate, we’ll help you and your loved ones put together a heartfelt video message that your mom will absolutely adore. It’s easy, quick, and anyone can do it! Here’s how.

1. Send Your Invites

Log in to your Celebrate account, and choose “Create New Celebration.” Then, it’s as easy as filling out the name of the person you’re celebrating, what the special occasion is, and letting people know when the videos are due. Now, you’re ready to send out your invites!

Who should you invite? Anyone who wants to celebrate your mom! This is a chance for you, your kids, and the rest of your friends and family to show her how much they appreciate her love and care. They don’t need to log in or download an app either, so even those who aren’t the best with technology can get in on the action.

2. Create a Theme

There are so many ways to celebrate your mom that your invitees might not know exactly what they should be talking about. If you create a theme, it’ll help your video contributors to gather their thoughts! Here are just a few ideas you can work off of:

  • Have your invitees talk about their favorite memory of your mom
  • Have your invitees share old photos and pictures
  • Have your invitees thank your mom for a favour she did for them

Remember, videos can be as long as you want, so contributors have plenty of time to talk about how awesome your mom is!

3. Let the Videos Roll in!

Now sit back, relax, and wait for your contributors to send in their videos. Don’t worry if some of the videos are a bit rough. After all, not everyone’s a world-class director, and you can do some editing later on (don’t worry, we’ll help!).

4. Edit Your Video

The Editing Suite makes putting together everyone’s videos a breeze. Just drag and drop everyone’s video contributions together into the timeline, and reorder them as you see fit. Feel free to add photos, gifs, songs, and more! If your mom has a favorite song, you can upload it into the Editing Suite for an extra, personal touch.

5. Process and Share

You’re almost done! When you’re happy with how your video looks, go ahead and process the video. Don’t worry; you don’t actually have to do anything aside from pressing the “process” button (we told you it was easy!). Then send out your video, and let the laughter (and happy tears) begin!

Your Mom Deserves the Best

Showing your mom that she’s loved is easy when done through a video gift message. Video lets you add in an extra, personal touch to your messages, and they’re even better when everyone gets involved. For this Mother’s Day, check out how Celebrate can let you and your loved ones give your mom the best Mother’s Day present ever.
