Still trying to come up with a great gift idea? One of the best gifts is something personal.
Framing a photo from a special day or memorable trip is one option and no one can do it better/faster than Framebridge! I have ordered through them for both personal use and for gifts and think they deliver on quality/speed/packaging. Some special people in my life will be receiving their own, personalized photo to commemorate an experience we shared this year.
Another option is to frame art by your children…always welcome at your own home, but a winner for grandparents or grown children who will relish seeing their artwork in a beautiful book. For individual art pieces, you can send the originals to Framebridge or upload a photo (I’ve done this). But, if you want a coffee table- style book I recommend Artkive. I have the app on my phone and though I haven’t finished uploading all of my sons’ art…I can commit that it will happen in 2018!

And, if you’re running out of time to get it done, take a snapshot of the work-in-progress and let your recipient know it’s on the way!

I love this idea and what a perfect way to keep all of that precious artwork from school! Happy Wednesday, Elizabeth!
The photos / frames attached on your post…are they original pieces or photos of the original pieces or do we Need to take photos of original art and send for framing?

The first photo is actual art, however I have had them frame a photo of my child’s art and it came out great! For certain pieces you might want to mail it in (though I don’t believe you’ll have it by Christmas). If you send a photo you can have it by Christmas. Hope that helps!
