Memorable Gift Ideas

By: Sarah Leavey

When buying a gift for a loved one, it's important to find something they will cherish and remember forever. An impulse gift is usually a waste of money as it is often quickly forgotten by the receiver.

Receiving a heartfelt gift brings a smile to your face every time you look at, or think of that gift. The trouble is, finding such a gift can often be very difficult. One can get overwhelmed when walking into a store to purchase a gift. In order to give a meaningful present it's helpful to ask yourself questions, such as:

1. What accomplishments is he/she proud of?
2. What activities does he/she love?
3. What would mean a lot to me if I were receiving a gift?

Planning out what one is going to buy months in advance is not necessary. A lot of great, significant gifts can be found in the comfort of your own home. No, I'm not suggesting watching infomercials or shopping channels; try searching for products online.

A personalized gift shows you put your time, energy, and love into your present. It's important to buy a present that one will keep close to their heart forever. Pictures are a great way to freeze time and evoke fond memories. I know I know, you're thinking giving a picture is an unoriginal present. I'm not suggesting putting a picture in a five dollar frame and calling it the perfect present.

You can customize the picture of your loved one in many ways, such as:
1. Photo Blankets: photo blankets are available in vibrant colors or in black and white.
2. Photo Tote Bags: photo bags are ready to be toted in two sizes, 13" x 17" and 17" x 17".
3. Logo Throws: top quality logo throws are woven not screen printed.
4. Photo Pillows: photo pillows are available in a variety of sizes such as: 19" x 17", 26" x 34" and 17" x 17".

If you want to get even more creative with your present, you can turn a few of your photos into a collage. Some companies have designers on staff to create aesthetically pleasing blankets out of your memories.

If you want your customized photo gift to look flawless pay close attention to the following tips. It's important to have a high resolution photo, a JPEG of around 1,000 pixels works best. All photos are acceptable, but close-up photos produce the best results. It is essential to choose a photo that has the best clarity for optimum results.

When purchasing a personalized photo gift be mindful that all companies do not produce the same quality of work. Some stores turn out work that is grainy and discolored. Stores that take the time to manually match yarn to your photo create the best products. Don't stop at the first site you see to buy a custom present; do your research.
