On Pinterest, all kinds of creative ideas show up on the group boards. Just last year I shared this group board, Mother's Day Gift Ideas that has expanded to many new pins for handmade cards and vases.
Your group board can be shared on other social networking sites, like Facebook and Twitter. Every time you pin an image, your family and friends can see what you're up to and join the Pinterest Group Boards. Pinterest does well to help share your ideas (hint: moms love flowers!).
That's Caring, the eco-friendly online shop has gift baskets again this year but my favorite is still a popular pin on Pinterest for mom, titled "There is No Way to Be a Perfect Mother but a Million Ways to be a Good One." Another favorite, it's from Shop to be Green, is a handmade pillow with felt cutouts, "Call Your Mother."
Contributors to the gift ideas group board come from different commerce and nonprofit sites, including That's Caring, Fair Trade USA and crafters, whose work links back to their website or blog. By "following" the Pinterest group board, users are able to add pins to the group board.
The benefits for all to participate in shared group boards on Pinterest not only for Mother's Day but other holidays and occasions throughout the year can have a lasting effect.
