Now that the holiday season is officially upon us, the gift shopping has begun. As moms, we usually focus on what we want to get everyone else, but it can be really hard to make a list of what we want ourselves. After all, an all expenses paid, childfree vacation doesn't really fit under the Christmas tree. 

If you're struggling to figure out what to ask for this year, this TikTok video might be of help. One mom shared the gift idea that she thinks all dads out there should get their wives, and we have to admit that great points are being made here... 

We all know that moms are far more often found behind the camera instead of in front of it, and that means that there are hardly any candid photos of us with our kids as they grow up. For some reason, dads don't think to snap photos in the moment the way moms do... and that can be a bit of a bummer.

But this mom's gift idea solves that issue, and it's something that most moms would be really excited to receive. She suggested that, starting in January, dads — or really anyone who spends a lot of time with a Mom they love — should start secretly taking candid photos of Mom and her kids. Then, just before Christmas, they can print them out in black and white and create a photo album of pictures from the entire year.

It's too late to pull this off for this Christmas, but with 2023 just a few weeks away, it's a great time to start this project to really impress her next year. Not only will the photos mean a lot, but the effort and planning will, too. 

We can always buy material things, but it's the memories — especially the ones that happen when our kids are little — that we can't replace. If you're gifting someone their precious memories in a physical form, you really can't go wrong.
