The trouble is since I am a stay at home mom, I do not have a regular income of my own. That often makes it difficult to afford extravagant gifts. Even worse, at times when I do have a good amount saved up, I go all out, which is great at the time, but it makes the times when I have less even more noticeable. Going from about 10 gifts to only 1 or 2 is a very big difference.
Even worse, me getting his so much many times before, he already has so many things, it makes it harder to know what to get him. How do you shop for someone who already has everything, especially on a fixed budget?
The only thing that could match up(in my opinion) is a gift that is heartfelt and special. Cologne(as an example) is not my opinion of a suitable gift on a wedding anniversary, especially if there are not other gifts as well.
So this year I decided to give him a gift that had an emotional connection. What better than bringing to life a special memory?
I wanted a photo gift, but there are so many choices that it is so hard to choose. I did a lot of research and decided on a photo canvas. I found a company that has great prices, great service and incredibly beautiful products. Canvas n' Decor is fabulous!
Canvas n' Decor has Split Panel Prints, Photo Collage Prints, Canvas Framed Prints and of course Canvas Gallery Wraps, which is what I chose. I got a 20x24, and it is perfect!
The best part though, it how much my husband loves it. He is not a super sentimental guy, but I could really see the emotion he felt when I gave him this. He has thanked me numerous times for it and has commented over and over how "cool" it is that the photo could be made into this beautiful artwork.
I could not be more thrilled with the quality of this Gallery Wrap. I do wish our wedding photos looked nicer overall, but this is the best our wedding photos have ever looked. Being able to add the "Until Death Do Us Part" text was great.=, and it not only fit perfectly with the photo, but with the occasion(anniversary) as well.
So not only was this a special gift in general, it was a perfect choice for an anniversary gift. I think this might just be on of the best things I have ever gifted to my husband. Considering how many things I have gotten him and how much I have spent, it is so surreal that just giving a special moment forever captured on canvas art can make him so happy.
I am so glad that I stepped outside of my usual sports memorabilia gifting routine and went with something that actually means something. I think I found a new go to gift. With the holidays coming up I certainly need all the gift ideas I can get, and a gorgeous gallery wrap is something everyone will love.
