GIFT FOR UNDER £10



If you are looking for a present, that is both affordable and personal, then look no further. These two copper frames would make a lovely gift simply on their own. However, you could make it extra special by framing something special for them, as a surprise! 
There are so many things that could be framed, memories old and new. Such as, concert tickets, postcards, flyers, passport photos, polaroids or a favourite verse or quote. You could even use washi tape, ribbon or fabric. Keep it simple with a photograph from childhood or make a collage of your favourite moments of this year. The options are endless. Let your creativity take over, and the end result will be a gift to be treasured. 
I have a special place in my heart for all the photographs that were taken before I was born - I'm very grateful to my nan and mum for keeping them safe for all this time. I insist on hauling them down from the attic at least twice a year. 
Below, are a few pictures that I plan to use. I also came across an old postcard from yours truly. The postcard reads... 
To Mum, David, and Nicola
It took us 180 miles to get to Torquay. Then the next day we went to paighton zoo at paighton Zoo I bought a furry bunny. I called it funny bunny.

So, I plan to use the New Look frame (left) to share a few pictures that will be sure to stir some nostalgia, and the Paperchase frame (right), will feature a very festive photograph. These two presents did not cost a lot but I'm sure that they will be appreciated and enjoyed.

  1. This is a lovely idea. Personalised gifts always mean the most and those frames are lovely in their own right :)

  4. I love this idea! Handmade gifts are my favorite, but these wouldn't take too long to make for multiple people.
