    Want to show your mother, grandmother, aunty, or a woman who is important in your life how much you love and appreciate them? From memorable slideshow Reels to Mother’s Day gift guides and affirmation posts, create a special video this Mother’s Day with Clipchamp.  

    Read on to explore these 15 must-try video ideas you can create and share to social media in seconds.  

    1. Mother’s Day slideshow video 

    Remind your mom this Mother’s Day how much you cherish all the memories with her by creating a video slideshow. Highlight your favorite times together caught on video or in a photo by merging them together in a montage video. It’s the perfect last-minute gift that you can create in seconds with our video slideshow maker.  

    2. Pet voiceover video  

    Fur babies and dog Moms can celebrate Mother’s Day too! Create a cute and humorous video from a pet’s perspective by documenting the day in the life of your mom’s furry friend. This style of voiceover video is a great way to entertain your followers while sharing tribute to your mom. 

    3. Storytime video about mom 

    One of the easiest yet effective gifts of all is sharing a funny, memorable, or heartfelt storytime video about your mom. Use your smartphone, camera, or record with ease with an online webcam recorder telling a story about mom. Edit your video to remove mistakes, aspect ratio to suit any social media platform, and even add Mother’s Day themed stickers, transitions, background music, and more.  

    4. Q&A video with mom   

    Whether you’re asking Mom awkward questions and advice or testing how well she knows you, interact with your mom a bit differently this Mother’s Day by recording a unique Q&A video. This interview style video is a wonderful way to get mom involved, share her personality online, and let your followers in on your personal life.

    You can add auto-captions and text overlays to make your video more accessible and even speed up or slow down your video. Video memories usually last forever, so you can reminisce and watch the videos you made together every Mother’s Day too.  

    5. Mother’s Day video card  

    Instead of writing your mom a traditional Mother’s Day card, turn your loving words into a surprise video card. It’s easy if you use a ready-made video template, personalize the text, colors, and add in your own images. Share your video card directly to TikTok straight from the export page in Clipchamp.

    6. Mom’s favorite recipe video 

    From warm roast dinners to fluffy chocolate pancakes, there’s always a dish mom cooks that’s regularly requested on special occasions, or just because. But instead of gatekeeping your delicious homecooked meals, turn your mom's go-to recipes into easy-to-follow social media videos for your followers to enjoy. Delicious simple recipes and cooking hack videos even have a good chance to go viral on TikTok.  

    7. Interview with the kids’ video 

    Bring the children together this Mother’s Day to create a special video for mom. Ask the kids what they love best about mom, their favorite activity with mom, and why mom is special to them. This heartfelt video is extra cute, entertaining, and will bring happy tears and a smile to your mom’s face. Trim video clips, merge together, add some soft background music, text overlays, and share directly to social media like YouTube.  

    8. Mother’s Day meme 

    Keep your mom laughing this Mother’s Day by sending a hilarious and unexpected Mother’s Day meme. Find a relatable meme online or create your own with free Mother’s Day stock footage, save it to your smartphone, and send it to your mom. Nothing says “I love you mom” like a corny meme.  

    9. Impersonating mom TikTok trend video 

    If you want to make your mom laugh this Mother’s Day, create a light-hearted impersonation short video. Acting like your mom on TikTok has millions of views combined and has become one of the most well-known trends on TikTok. The trend first became popular from the creator Kat Stickler acting like her Hispanic mother in videos, with her own mother recording. Her contagious laugh behind the camera makes the impersonations even funnier as you can hear Kat’s mom loving her impersonation.  

    10. Author a poem about mom 

    Sometimes it’s hard to put into words how much we really love our mom. So instead of writing a traditional Mother’s Day card this year, get creative and take your Mother’s Day gift to the next level by writing mom a heartfelt (or funny) poem. The options are endless, for example, ‘roses are red, violets are blue, sorry you didn’t give birth to a poet who could rhyme, but I love you’.  

    If you need extra inspiration, ask ChatGPT to write you a bespoke poem by prompting it with a few stories or details about your mum.

    11. Mother's Day craft tutorial video

    Handmade gifts are always treasured possessions for mums. If you're a crafty and creative person, why not inspire friends and follower with a tutorial video? Whether it's simple crafts that toddlers can make like origami or more artsy ideas like pottery, jewelry or flower arrangements, craft and DIY Reels can go viral before Mother's Day.

    Use this simple step-by-step tutorial style video template to speed up your video editing.

    12. Mother's Day gift guide video

    Gift guides are really popular videos on Facebook, Reels as well as TikTok because viewers can find hidden gem product recommendations from the community, rather than shuffling through Amazon and other websites. Create a helpful gift guide by choosing a theme, for example, "gifts for moms who love to cook", or "gifts for moms who love to travel".

    Arrange your gift ideas in a slideshow video, and add lower thirds to describe the products, their prices, any coupon codes and where viewers can buy easily.

    13. First Mother's Day video collage

    It's a great idea to commemorate a mum's first ever Mother's Day with a video. Quickly turn photos into a collage video by including clips from the pregnancy, baby shower, baby's first moments, and more such milestones.

    Check out this step-by-step guide to making a collage video for social media.

    14. Mother's Day outfit ideas

    This one's for the fashionistas. Create a video showing off your outfit ideas for different activities for Mother's Day. You can switch between outfits, like going out for brunch, watching a play, or simply going on a Mother's Day shopping trip.

    You can also pair up with your daughter and show off your style together. Use this lookbook-style video template to make your video stand out.

    15. Affirmation videos for mums

    Spread love and positivity on social media with an affirmation video. Motivating message videos are highly shareable on social media like Reels and TikTok. You can choose from a range of themes that will resonate with mums, such as gratitude and guidance.

    Use animated text or animated video backgrounds to level up your affirmation video.
