Struggling to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gifts for those you love? Tired of the typical red roses-and-candy combo?

Save the calories and choose a gift that truly means something (not to mention lasts a lifetime) by designing a custom picture frame that’s easy, fast, and affordable!

From printed photos to meaningful art, there is no limit to how personalized you can get with this special gift, but we’re sharing a few ideas and style options to get your creative wheels turning.

1. Frame Your Wedding Photos

On average, hundreds of photos are taken during every single wedding, yet how many of those actually end up in a physical form beyond a digital file?

As Mike Yost suggests, capturing memories is one thing, but preserving and showcasing them long-term is something we often forget.

Printing and framing some of your favorite wedding photos as a Valentine’s Day gift is the perfect occasion to celebrate your love. We know that narrowing down the photos from your wedding to be framed can be a daunting task. Check out our post in our Learning Center for some inspiration on keeping the memories from your wedding day alive

2. Add Sentimental Touches to Your Bedroom Decor

Your bedroom is the perfect spot to add a touch of sentimental decor. Choose a photo or series of art prints that can express your true feelings. Or perhaps frame a print of a saying that means something to the both of you. There are tons of places to get meaningful wall decor online, one of our favorites being Etsy.

3. Pop the Question

According to a survey, 43% of Millennials say Valentine’s Day is their top day to propose or be proposed to. If you plan on popping the question, consider creating a special framed memento you can cherish for years to come. Maybe it can even be the start of a gallery wall of your life together.

4. Create a Gallery Wall of Your Life Together

Tip: You can also combine memories into a digital photo collage to save on space and group similar events.

Ashford in Gloss Gold with 1″ Smooth White Mat (White Core) Outer Mat and .75″ Smooth White (White Core) Inner Mat

For a look that speaks to elegance and class, gold is a solid pick. Thicker double matting helps to accent the art inside, and you can even choose a coordinating mat color!

Red Picture Frame

Hanover in Red frame with 3″ Smooth White (White Core) Outer Mat and .25″ Classic Gold (White Core) Inner Mat.

To go a bit more dramatic, larger matting will draw your eye to the center of the piece (your art or photograph). Pair a touch of inner gold matting with a red frame for a ready to hang Valentine’s Day gift!

Granby Picture Frame

Our Granby style frame is chic and tasteful, a great way to display your Valentine’s Day photos. It’s simple, yet will always stand out on your wall. Add a single White matboard to make it stand out even more!
