You have a lot of options here as to how you want to set the images up. Pick the best images you have of your child and pick one of our great frames to give them for graduation.

A Highlight Reel of Important Life Events

You could highlight this important event that means a lot to them in a frame, so they have a treasure of that event they can look back on for years to come.

Encouraging Words

Becoming an adult can be a scary thing and we all need a bit of encouragement. Another thing you could add in your custom picture frames is sayings or words of encouragement for your child. If you have a religious family, this could be a verse from a religious text.

Collage in a boxed frame

By picking one of our shadow box frames, you’ll not just have room for the diploma and pictures of (and leading up to) graduation day, but also include their graduation cap, a sports jersey or other school uniform they’ve worn in their school days, and perhaps the school’s logo.

1. A Special Note

When you think of a perfect Mother’s Day gift you can frame, you might think first of a picture. While pictures can make a great gift, some notes can feel even more thoughtful. If you’ve ever written your mother a note as a kid, you can frame it or even try to remake it. Even better, you can use both and make a small collage (perhaps with a picture, too). But don’t hesitate to write a letter from scratch. This will not just warm your mother’s heart, but also show your love in a way you can’t just buy from a store.

Speaking of things you can buy in a store, check out these frames that would be perfect for a simple collage.

2. Heart-Shaped Photo Collage

If you want to use pictures, the best way to turn it into a perfect Mother’s Day gift is to create a collage in the shape of a heart. Hearts are popular around Mother’s Day and they’re a great way to turn normal pictures in a loving and thoughtful collage. It’s a display of love on so many levels, and will be the single best way to frame your love for your mother.

3. Box Frame

Another cool idea of framing a collage is by using a shadow box frame. This allows you to put anything you like inside the frame to decorate around a picture or the pictures you’re using. You can also include little notes, words, and even small objects that have a special meaning to you and your mother. If you can find it, a small gift from your childhood that your mother gave you or you gave her can be the perfect addition to a box frame.

4. Simple Collage Frame

A simple collage frame is perfect if you’re looking to build a collage for Mother’s Day but don’t have a lot of creativity. Our collage frames are the easiest way to bundle special pictures in one frame. A simple collage frame with three or four openings is by far the easiest way to get a lot of special in a small space. These frames are both modern and beautiful. They can hold several photos at the same time and will remind your mother of the special moments that you have spent together.

5. Our ‘Mother’ frame

There is an even easier way than getting a simple collage frame. Our special ‘Mother’ frame gives you six openings for pictures in the most fitting frame you can find for Mother’s Day. If there is a perfect Mother’s Day gift you can frame, this is it.

4 perfect and personal wedding anniversary gifts

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.
