There are lots of occasions throughout the year where you need to buy gifts for your loved ones. You want to get them something thoughtful and meaningful, but this can often be difficult. If you want your gifts to be displayed in pride of place inside your loved one’s home, then custom framing is the perfect accessory.
Here are some great gift ideas you could try that involve custom framing…
Print a special photo
You probably have lots of photos of you and your loved one having a good time together. These are memories that should be cherished. Although we can easily take more photos now, they often get left in the cloud and rarely looked at again. Trawl through your old photographs to find a special memory you can frame as a gift for them.
Frame tickets or memorabilia
Another way to commemorate memories you and your loved one have shared is to frame keepsakes from those times. Tickets are a great example of this. If you and your friend go to a lot of music concerts, sporting events, or movies together, then saving tickets from these events and then having them framed will mean a lot. You could create a collage of keepsakes or just frame one special item, such as a ticket from the movie you went to on your first date, for example.
A pet portrait
If your friend or family member has a pet, then they would probably love to see that pet immortalized in a portrait. Find a nice photo of their pet (you’re bound to find plenty on your friend’s social media profiles) and take it to someone who can paint or draw that photograph in a nice style. Or maybe you’ve got artistic skills yourself and can create your own drawing. Have the end result custom framed to create the perfect gift.
Framed book covers
If your friend, partner, or family member loves to read, then printing or acquiring the front cover of their favorite book can make for a really special, personalized gift. This could be the cover of a novel or a comic book, for example. If they love musicals and going to the theater, then you could frame the playbill of their favorite show.
Framed art from their kids
Parents are always looking for ways to hold onto the early years and memories of their kids as they grow up. Rather than just sticking their child’s best drawings or achievements on the refrigerator, frame them and hang them on the walls so that they can really show them off. It might embarrass the kids when they get older, but it will make for a very proud and happy parent.
