Disclosure: Instantly Framed provided me with my own custom print so I could understand the process and see the quality for myself. I was not required to post, but I loved the finished product so much I had to share it with you.
I don’t know about you, but holidays have a way of sneaking up on me. Even sneakier are the holidays that require gifts. I know they’re coming, but they always seem so far away … until the date is looming and I have nothing to give.
It doesn’t help that I’m an anxious gift-giver. I want so badly to give the perfect thing, that I often suffer from decision paralysis. Because I wait so long to decide on the BEST GIFT EVER, I instead end up giving the most sub-par gift ever. Funny thing, the best gifts often require those troublesome things like running errands across town or 5-7 business days shipping. I know, I know, you say it’s the thought that counts. But sometimes I’d like my recipients to think something kinder than, “Oh! Thanks for getting me this random thing we’ve all seen in the Target before.”
So, news alert: Mother’s Day is coming up. That’s an especially tricky holiday, because who doesn’t deserve something really personal and thoughtful for bringing you into this world? You’re in luck, because I have a great idea for you that:
a) doesn’t involve putting on pants,
b) will be processed and shipped to your door (or your recipient’s door) in no more than four days,
c) will be loved, cherished and beautifully displayed.
Instantly Framed takes a photo from your Instagram or Facebook account, prints it on professional photo luster paper with archival ink, and mounts it into a 12×12 handcrafted walnut wood frame. It’s so easy, and the finished product is so lovely.
I snapped this shot of my parents on a whim with my phone and just fell in love with it. It was casual and last minute – we were saying our goodbyes in front of their house after dinner. It’s everything I love about my parents: their enduring love, their smiles, and my childhood home in the background. It’s so easy to let these images languish in our phones or on our computers. Thanks to Instantly Framed, I had it uploaded and ordered through their app in less than 5 minutes. Two days later it was at my door.
If you’re anything like me, I bet you have a few of those kinds of photos lingering on your phone. Why not turn them into a thoughtful gift instead? You don’t even need a holiday – just gift one to yourself!
