What do your picture frames look like? Are they standard ones bought from a shop, featuring wooden frames and little else to make them stand out? If so, you might be interested to know there are lots of ways you can make personalised frames that suit all kinds of occasions.
From birthdays to anniversaries, and seasonal events to notable dates, you can always create a personalised photo frame to suit an individual or to complement the photo chosen to go into the frame. Let’s explore the many options that exist to do just that.
You might think photo frames are an uninspired gift, and if you buy one ‘as is’, you might be right. However, if you go for a personalised design, you’ll find it much easier to pick this idea for a great gift opportunity.
When you give a personalised picture frame to someone, it’s clear plenty of thought has gone into the gift. Additionally, you’ll find it easier to give a gift that suits the recipient. While a standard frame could be rather dull and basic, a personalised one pops out and demands to be noticed.
There are lots of ways you can do this. For example, you could buy a plain wooden frame and decorate it yourself to personalise it. Think about the recipient and the things they like, and go from there. It’s often best to start with colours and where the frame might be displayed. If they like natural tones, make sure your frame brings these into play.
There is all manner of things you could use to personalise your own plain frame. What about seashells, for example, or buttons, or perhaps even Scrabble tiles or LEGO bricks? The choices are endless, and they can all help reflect the nature and age of the person who will be receiving the gift.
If you aren’t very good with crafts, you could buy a frame and have it personalised for you. We mentioned a wooden frame above, and a good example of a personalised wooden frame would be the Oak Finish Photo Frame that can hold a 6×4 portrait. Just add the family name, the names of the individual family members, and another line of text underneath… and then pop in a family picture to complete the gift.
Modern photo frames are easy to go for as well. The Black Glass Photo Frame is a good example, with the option of presenting it in landscape or portrait mode. This has room for a line of up to 25 characters at the top, and two lines of 30 characters each at the bottom.
But it’s not just about photos – not in the normal sense of pictures taken of people, anyway. How could you mark a move into a new property, for example? This might mean moving into somewhere with your partner, husband, or wife, or perhaps marking a move made by someone else. In this case, you could purchase a Personalised Frame Featuring a Map targeting the post code of the property you (or the recipient) now lives in. Completed with a message underneath the map, this would make the perfect housewarming gift.
This is an important note to remember, because it helps brings the whole design together. Imagine, for example, that someone you know has just had a baby. You could buy a beautiful Wooden Photo Frame Featuring Baby Footprints at the top. Add your chosen message, the name of the baby and their birthday, and once you receive the frame, you can add a photo of the newcomer before you wrap it.
Once you realise how delightful such frames can be, and the many options you can choose from, you can see how versatile a photo frame gift is. When you want to buy a special gift for someone, a photo frame may just turn out to be the ideal choice. There are so many options for personalisation, it is far easier to give an affordable and memorable gift that will bring joy for many years to come. All you need to do is to choose the best frame for the occasion, and decide which photo to put inside it to complete the gift.
