Most people think of custom picture frames as a way to display your pictures and artwork, but they also make a great personal anniversary gift. Because you can use a custom picture frame for a wide variety of objects (aside from pictures and artwork), they make a very versatile anniversary gift. In this blog post, we have found five personal wedding anniversary gifts that will surprise your significant other and make it easy to find your wedding anniversary gift on a budget.
Family tree in a box frame
One of the most exciting and precious gifts is a family tree. Especially for couples who’ve been together for a few years and started a family, a family tree can be a perfect ode to your family. While the basics idea will be the same, you can unleash your creativity to really make a family tree your own. If you decide to use craft materials instead of a tree that fits a piece of paper, consider a shadow box frame. The added depth will make your gift a centerpiece in any room.
Wedding vows in a frame
Chances are you’ve got a wedding picture somewhere in your house. But over the years, your vows have probably replaced the wedding day as the most important thing in your marriage, even if you’ve never explicitly thought about them. A collage that focuses on your wedding vows can be a great gift to surprise your spouse. Whether you made your own vows or used a standard vow, you can frame them in a fancy font and decorate it with pictures, memories, or a love letter that underlines the vows in your own words.

A timeline in pictures
A personal photo gallery of your memories together can be a fantastic way to commemorate your favorite moments together, and perhaps reflect on different times in your relationship. You can select a picture for each year of your relationship and put them in a custom picture frame by using our custom mat designer. This also allows you to put years and other texts with the pictures for a great custom experience.
Your love in one word
Another great gift idea that comes straight from our custom picture mat designer is a mat with cut out letters. Each letter houses a different picture. You can choose to display your last name, a general word like ‘LOVE’, or a word that means something to the two of you. Whichever word you choose, this is a great way to quickly make a wedding anniversary gift that feels personal and intimate.
Custom picture frames are an easy way to find the perfect wedding anniversary gift. Even if you choose a gift that doesn’t actually include pictures, anything that comes in a frame will be personal and thoughtful.
