Picture Perfect Gifts and Gift Baskets

Photographs are among many people’s most treasured possessions. Gifts that offer special pictures are especially revered by recipients. The following text provides an array of gift ideas for giving photographs and photo accessories.

Pictures may say a thousand words, but for many women, jewelry says it all! By combining both, you may have a seriously great gift on your hands. Charm bracelets that sport mini picture frames make for a wonderfully novel gift. Look for examples in sterling silver or gold. Styles can be anything from Victorian to contemporary.

For a classic gift of jewelry, however, consider a personalized locket. From a new design to a classic one, have your locket engraved for someone special. This can be a romantic gift or a great gift for a mother or grandmother.

A basket of picture frames is a great gift for a new bride or mother-to-be. Consider their personal taste or style of décor before choosing your frame collection. Simple black frames in several sizes makes a simple yet elegant offering. Yet, an eclectic mix of photo frames appears more personal, and for the right person, just as elegant!

Some crafters might want to go the extra mile with their gift of a photo frame by adding some custom artwork to a simple wood frame. Cover the frame with a cushion of velvet or add a border of dice and poker chips for your favorite gambler. These personalized offerings can transform an inexpensive item into a memorable gift.

Scrapbookers might want to consider making a mini-scrapbook for a friend filled with some great pictures of past adventures together. Scrapbook pages may seem a bit unorthodox, but their unique ability to personalize often means more than other kinds of gifts.

Old photographs often linger in drawers, but this can be the makings of a great gift for various members of the family who may not have access to the drawer of old pictures. For instance, consider giving framed copies of Great Grandfather in his naval uniform or your grandmother’s baby picture in vintage frames to all the girls in the family. Keep in mind, pictures might also show the old family homestead or a beloved family pet.

A specialty picture frame make a great gift in itself. A small frame covered with rhinestones looks beautiful on a dresser or nightstand. A lovely carved frame might be composed of a rare exotic wood making for an extraordinary offering. If a wedding gift is needed, consider a large table-top frame made from fine crystal.

Of course, frames are not the only place to display photos. Many objects like trinket boxes also sport framed areas for photo inclusion. With paint, adhesive and lacquer, you can convert any object into a place to show off decoupaged photographs—old trunks, jewel chests, plaques, etc…

Another picture perfect idea is to allow an artist to render a favorite family photograph into a work of art. Water colors or oil paintings are perfect for the family room or a formal living room. Another great gift option might be to give a family a gift certificate to have their portrait taken by a professional photographer.

Disposable cameras and camera accessories make terrific gifts also. A basket filled with disposable cameras is a wonderful bridal shower gift as they may be used by wedding reception guests. It has all the makings of a gift of memories.

Because pictures are so universally beloved, giving the gift of photographs is sure to please anyone on your gift list, both young and old, male or female alike!

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
