A Valentine’s Day Gift Sweeter than Chocolate
How often do you remember the gift you have given, or received, on Valentine’s Day? A box of assorted chocolates, a variety of flowers, or a group of heart shaped Mylar balloons may be your best memory of past Valentine’s Day gift giving. Or, maybe you can’t remember what it was at all. Unfortunately, flowers wilt and chocolates go stale and balloons lose their air.
If you are looking for something a little different this year, something that will have a lasting impact on your loved one’s memory, consider having something custom framed. The options are limitless. A small photo from your early dating years can be matted with a customized cutout reflecting a place or a theme, and then framed in a beautiful wood frame to match his or her décor. What about custom framing your engagement photo? A recent trip to the local wineries provides a great gift idea. Wine labels, a map of the area and even a cork or two from your sampling that day, can all be arranged in a beautiful presentation for your loved one. Perhaps you have the ticket stubs from the first movie you saw together. The menu cover from your favorite restaurant or photos from your first vacation together are all thoughtful and meaningful gifts.
Keep in mind, when you decide to have your special items framed and find that you have belongings that are rare, old or sentimental, be sure to ask about preservation framing. The materials and process used for preservation framing will help ensure your treasured pieces are protected from the elements, and will guarantee your gift is remembered for years to come.
