Gift Ideas: Give Framing a Try!

Give the gift of a Memory!

It is truly incredible all the different types of things you can frame these days and the variety of all the ideas you can think up!

If there was a new addition to your family, a great gift idea would be a framed poem welcoming the new family member into this world. Or, if there is a momentous occasion and you want to have a keepsake of the event, creating a shadow box with the outfit your loved one wore would be a great idea. For instance, I know my Mom kept my christening dress, and I think it would have been a sweet idea if it was framed and hung in my room. Take a look at a few ideas below:

Other unique gift ideas could be poems, love letters, or cards to a significant other. Was there a point in time where you had been separated from your lover and you two exchanged snail mail? Maybe a particularly sweet letter would be a great idea to commemorate by framing and hanging somewhere that you can see it everyday.

Even a special photo collage could be made more personal by the choice of frame, the matting, and  the colors. And if you decided to do any engraving or notation on the frame, that works great too! Was there a girl’s weekend away at the spa? Boys trip out camping in the mountains? Or maybe even a family reunion BBQ? Gathering a bunch of candid photo shots or posed group photos in a collage setting would be a great piece to give at the holidays or share at a family beach house.

You can frame pretty much anything! If there is a special keepsake you are holding onto, and it is definitely something you want for years to come, and is important to protect, framing is the way to go.

I recently moved into a new apartment and have a few bare walls I am looking to cover. I am quite confident that I can come up with some unique and interesting-looking wall decorations.
