Are you stressed about gift giving this season? If so, you’re not alone. Research shows that most people find shopping for gifts more stressful than family visits and holiday travel combined.
Finding the right gift for everyone on your list can be stressful. Finding the right gift for significant others and family members can be even more so.
Try as you might, it’s not unusual to draw a complete blank on what to give. You want a gift that is personal and unique, but what?
Finding a unique and truly personal gift doesn’t have to be stressful. The solution is most likely right in front of your eyes – custom framed art work.
Custom framed art or photographs make a wonderful gift. But, what if you don’t have just the right piece of art? Not to worry – there are literally hundreds of things that can be framed to create a unique gift:
Framed maps of significant places (such as where you met that special someone), make a truly special gift.
Frame found natural objects like shells, driftwood and pebbles from your favorite beach vacation.
Medals and badges
When framed, family heirlooms such as medals and badges honor and commemorate those closest to you.
Frame those forgotten (or favorite) scrapbook pages as a gift for a family member or friend.
Ticket stubs and programs
Remember your first concert with that special someone? How about your niece’s first dance recital? Have the tickets and program framed to create a cherished memento of the special occasion. It’s much more meaningful than throwing the tickets in a drawer and forgotten.
Baby’s christening gown
Here’s one you probably never thought of. For a truly unexpected gift, have your grandchild’s christening outfit framed as a lasting memory for the parents.
Almost any type of clothing can be framed. How about baby’s first onesie? A fan’s favorite jersey or a uniform?
Mom’s handwritten recipes
Frame your mother’s handwritten recipes as a gift for your sister. Or your grandmother’s recipes as a gift for your mother.
Don’t limit yourself to just recipes. Any type of handwritten note from a beloved relative would make a delightful framed gift for a family member.
Dried flowers, antique pocket watches, buttons, keys, coins – almost anything you can imagine can be framed. Whatever you have in mind, stop by the shop and let us help you create the perfect gift.
