Remembering Your Event With a Personalised Photo Gift
Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and baby showers are all memorable events. What better way to capture and preserve these times than with personalised photo gifts? You can capture these memories and turn them into coffee mugs, t-shirts and other memorabilia to remember your special event. Personalised photo gifts come in all shapes and sizes. Keep these tips in mind when selecting the most appropriate gift for your occasion.
1. Size- do you want to frame a family photo? Or do you just want to frame your daughter’s face? If you want to create a gift with a photo that includes many faces, choose a larger item so that each face is clearly visible. This might be a coffee mug, a decorative plate or a framed portrait. If you want a smaller keepsake, you might consider personalising a key chain or a mouse pad.
2. Cost- if you only want to spend a few dollars on your photo gift, a key chain or picture cube might be a good idea. If you want to invest a substantial amount of money in making a decorative item that can be displayed prominently in your home, you might want to have a larger photo framed. Choose a quality metal or wood frame that fits nicely with the existing decor.
3. Receiver- keep the recipient of the gift in mind when creating your photo gift. If the person is always on his or her computer, a mouse pad with a picture of the memorable occasion is a great idea. If the person spends a lot of time in the kitchen, consider transferring a photo to a decorative plate or tray that can be displayed in the kitchen or dining room. If the person travels in his or her car frequently, a hanging ornament that can be suspended from the rear view mirror is a great idea. The point is to think about the person’s lifestyle to help guide you in choosing the most appropriate present.
4. Number of photos- if you want to incorporate a large number of photos into your photo gift, a album might be a good idea. For example, if you would like to document a couple’s progress through its engagement, wedding, and bridal showers, make an album of the most memorable moments of these events. You can create an album with three different sections; also, leave some blank pages in the end for the couple to insert pictures of their children. This will become a treasured keepsake for the family that can be passed from the parents to the children for generations to come.
