6 Reasons Why Framed Prints Make the Best Gifts

They say a picture paints a thousand words, but do they make a good gift? You have most probably gifted a photo before either of friends or family, taken at birthdays or weddings. It could have even been a school portrait that was sent to a relative when you were younger.

So would you consider landscape photography as a gift? Well I may be biased but I believe they can make some of the best Gifts you can find, here are 6 reasons why they can make the perfect gift.

1. They are meaningful.

Buying a photographic print whether framed or not as a gift, shows them you have thought deeply about the recipient and make great personalised gifts. it may be a place you visited together sharing a moment or celebration, or just a beautiful capture of a place you know they will love.

2. They are one of a kind

The framed print you gift is individual to the recipient, it may be because its a place they like, somewhere they lived or holidayed in, it may be where they got married or engaged and the emotional connection they will have to location will be unique to them.

3. They add character and charm to their home

The Roman poet Horace once said "a picture is a poem without words" it can add a story to their walls, colour and vibrancy to their home whilst showing of their individuality. Photography is available in so many forms as well, you can gift them a piece of wall art, a framed photo or even a personalised print or personalised wall art piece. Plus you will be to cool person who got them that unique gift.

4. They are a great talking point.

It's extremely likely the print or canvas wall art you have given to them, will be totally unique to your friend. They are a great item to show of their individuality or spark off a conversation about their favourite place or time.

5. They can tell their story.

Every picture has a story behind it, it could be their favourite walk location, their favourite part of the country, where they got married or engaged. That special place they have an emotional connection to. A gift of this is surely a winner.

6. They can transport them back in time.

Framed photographic prints have the ability to bring back memories of the past, bring the past into their home and allow those memories to be retold. 

We can't physically travel back in time but memories visualised and shared are a good alternative.

People like to buy art from where you have strong memories and it goes without saying that people in Wales are likely to want to purchase some Snowdonia Prints for their walls.
