Keepsakes

That shoebox full of things you’d kept (but didn’t know why) is about to become your best friend. It’s hopefully full of little items that’ll look amazing on your wall. Here’s some of our favourite ideas based on things we’ve framed in the past:

  1. Holiday ticket

    Perhaps you have kept a memento from your past together. A first plane ticket, or a token from a special holiday. Framing a keepsake like this can be a highly personal gift. Anything with sentimental value to you both is perfect for gifting.
  2. First date memories

    A popular first date option is the cinema, if only to avoid awkward silences as you get to know one another at a steady pace. If you still have the cinema tickets, or a poster from the movie why not get it framed?
  3. Gig ticket / wristband

    If you have visited one of the big music festivals in the UK or abroad why not frame your entry ticket or wristband? We suggest a frame and mount with a multi aperture which displays your favourite festival getaways from start to finish.
  4. Love notes / cute mementos

    Are you traditional romantics? Have you salvaged any love notes, or a simple post it note that really made you laugh, or cheered you up during a difficult day. Why not frame some of these moments? However, if you are on the younger side and don’t use pen or pencil for your messages, screengrabs of romantic WhatsApp’s could be a very 21st century idea.

Framed Maps

Perhaps you are one of the lucky couples who are well traveled and have explored interesting parts of the world together. A framed map pinpointing places you have visited can be a wonderful callback to your adventures with one another. We absolutely love these by Louisa Elizabeth. The maps are dry-mounted onto foam board and framed ready for you to remember your special destinations.

The Staged Photo

Arguably the most the most simple idea of all, but one that will really stand out with the right frame. Upload a picture, customise your perfect picture frame, and pick a mount to make your special image pop. Staging this photo next to a cultural monument will provide that additional wow factor to your pose with one another. Inspiration for landmarks to catch within this photo could be but are not limited to the Eifel Tower in Paris, or the Grand Canyon in Arizona!
