If you are looking for a personalised gift for a friend for a special occasion, consider purchasing or making a photo frame gift. A personalised photo frame is a creative and easy gift to create for a friend or loved one. It does not matter if you have a photo to insert in the frame. If you do not, then take out the filler photo and replace it with a piece of card stock inscribed with a special message.
Silver Engraved Frame
Purchase a sterling silver or silver-plated photo frame and have it engraved with a special message, the gift recipient's name, and/or a date of a special event--such as a birthday or graduation. You can purchase these silver or silver-plated frames from stores that specialise in personalising objects through engraving or from online frame vendors. Consider a heartfelt or entertaining message. For example, if your frame displays a photo of you and your friend at a special gala or party, consider engraving your names, the name of the gala and the date.
Personalised Name Photo Collage Frame
Order a personalised photo collage frame. A good source for personalised photo frames is the website FindGift. This site's "Personalized Name Photo Collage Frame" features up to nine letters that capture a memory or name. For example, your word could be your last name or a favourite activity, such as "Boating" or "Relaxing." You or your friend can slip photos in the frame. Parts of the photos will be seen through the cut-outs of the words. This is an artsy way to personalise your photo frame gift.
Select a custom wood frame that has a name or message etched into the finish. You can purchase these from online vendors, such as the wood frame website 1stFrame or Gifts For You Now. You also may be able to get a local wood craftsman to customise a wood frame for you. Consider theme messages such as "Family ... Our Love Endures" or "Sisters ... Best Friends Forever."
If you are on a budget, consider a paper frame. You can print these directly from your colour printer. Hewlett-Packard offers free templates through its free online "Creative Studio." You will upload your favourite photo into these templates and print. Or, you can use the online templates as a guide to make your own paper photo frame from scrap paper, embellishments and other craft items you have at your house already.
