The Art of Gifting

The next time you need the perfect gift, consider custom framing a piece of art, a special photo, or a memento. Flowers last a few days, a nice dinner lasts a couple hours, but frames can last a lifetime. Because so many things can be custom framed,  you can easily come up with a unique gift for every occasion. Here are some ideas to get your own thoughts flowing.

Frame a portrait of yourself or with your significant other.
If the two of you have been on a recent trip, frame a special
memory, like the Aboriginal painting shown below.

When someone has a baby, a great way to celebrate the
occasion is with a frame to insert pictures in, frame the birth
announcement, or ask your local framer if they can cut out
the baby’s name in a mat.

A graduate will generally appreciate having their diploma
custom framed after working all those years to get it! For
those who were involved in school activities, they may also
enjoy a shadowbox filled with their school memories. Of
course their graduation portrait can be framed as well.



         Framed wedding memorabilia makes a great gift for the bride
and groom or a treasue for their parents. Wedding pictures,
invitations and flowers are all special keepsakes.



         We all have different tastes and interests. Think of something
to frame that will mean a lot to the person you plan to give it to.
Consider a small quilt or painting you made for them. Everyone
can use a framed mirror and you can frame it to suit a specific
room decor. If you are undecided, go to your local frame shop
and purchase a gift certificate.


         From time to time we all deserve to purchase something for
ourselves. You may have a special keepsake you have been
saving that would look perfect in a nice frame. Perhaps you need
to find a great piece of art to complete a newly decorated room.
