The Christmas season is finally upon us! As we approach the upcoming holidays, we are all thinking carefully about what gifts to buy for our family and friends. The holiday shopping scramble has begun, and everybody is hoping to get their gift-shopping done before the real chaos begins. I always find that it is easier to get holiday shopping done early, and it is sometimes extremely helpful to plan your gifts in advance. Planning your gifts for family and friends can be a good way to avoid hectic holiday shopping and prevent much unnecessary frustration.
There are so many holiday gifts to choose from for family and friends. Deciding what gifts to buy for everybody on your list can be incredibly overwhelming, scary even. It seems that there are endless options, how can you know for sure that you are giving the gift they really want? While I was doing my gift planning this year, I remembered how much I love receiving personalized gifts. Over the years, I have received several personalized gifts, and have loved and used each one for many years. There is something about receiving a gift that is unique and personal, that gives it more value, more sentiment. I love the thought that goes into a personalized gift, the planning, and the true mark of friendship and love that it shows. Whenever I receive a personalized gift, I know that the gift-giver had our relationship in mind. In the past, I have given personalized wallets, photo albums, luggage, and books. A personalized gift can be an incredibly special and intimate way to show the people in your life you are thinking about them. The beauty of a personalized gift, is that you need not worry that it is the wrong gift. A personalized gift is made specifically with your friend or loved-one in mind, and is perfectly unique. This year, I stumbled upon a new type of personalized gift, a photo canvas that is made up of small pieces of text. This gift is personal in two ways, as it captures a photo memory, as well as a written one.
The photo-to-text canvas is a large photo that is comprised of many small words. If you are looking at the canvas from a distance, it appears as one large photo. Get closer, and you’ll see that the photo is actually made up of many small pieces of text. To create your very own photo-to-text canvas, select your favorite photo, and an important, cherished piece of text. Many customers choose photos from their weddings, birthdays, or family celebrations. Since we are deep in the holiday season, consider choosing a favorite family portrait. Once you have selected your photo, you will choose the text that you’d like to make up the photo. Many customers choose the lyrics to their favorite song, their wedding vows, or a short story. You may consider a short prayer or favorite holiday song. Like the photo, there is no limit to the texts that you may choose for your canvas.
After you have selected your photo and text, you will choose the size of your canvas. The photo-to-text canvases are available to order in several sizes, making it easy for you to choose the best size for your budget, photo, and home. If you are giving the photo-to-text canvas as a gift, make sure you know what size your friend or loved one would prefer. If you would prefer to order a digital copy of your photo-to-text canvas, you may request that a digital copy of your photo-to-text canvas be sent directly to you in an image file. All physical canvases arrive at your doorstep ready to hang.
There is nothing like a personalized gift. Nothing like knowing how much your friends and family value you and your relationship. A personalized gift makes it clear that you have put so much time and thought into the gift, into the relationship. While there are so many gifts out there to choose from, and many that can be personalized, consider giving the photo-to-text canvas to some of your closest family and friends. Whether you are giving or receiving a personalized gift this year, you can guarantee that it will be cherished and appreciated for years to come. I love the photo-to-text canvas because it allows you to recreate and share so many memories at once. I am looking forward to the holidays, to giving the ones I love special, unique gifts that have been personalized just for them.
