5 Romantic Ideas for Custom Framed Anniversary Gifts

Whether it's the first year of your relationship or you've been married for years, finding the perfect anniversary gift can be a little stressful.

Fortunately, anniversaries are all about celebrating your shared experiences, so you don't need to look too far from home or even your phone to find a sentimental gift that shows how much you care.

Read on for some ideas for framed gifts your partner is sure to love!

Frame your favorite text messages

These days, many of our love notes come in the form of text messages and emails. Going back to the beginning of your digital exchange will reveal many special moments— Planning a first date, saying some of your first "I love you's," and the start of inside jokes.

Simply upload a screenshot of your text messages using our print and frame option and design your frame!

Frame your photobooth strips and polaroids

Custom framing a Polaroid or instant photo you both love not only makes a great gift but will also help preserve it.

These types of photos are made of materials that can easily degrade or discolor, so protecting them with archival framing can extend their lifetime and be a memory cherished for years to come.

You can custom frame your instant photo at home or send it to us to have it professionally mounted.

Frame your concert tickets

Ticket stubs are items that too often end up stuck in a drawer or sandwiched in the pages of books when we want to preserve a memory, but we don't really have plans for it.

Custom framing gives these items new life and is an opportunity to surprise your partner with a sentimental object that they probably haven't seen in ages. Like instant photos, the inks on tickets fade and discolor easily, but framing will protect them from elements that contribute to aging.

Frame their favorite album

Our framed vinyl records are a favorite of music lovers and make an easy, thoughtful anniversary gift.

You can order a frame for a vinyl you already own or we can track down and frame just about any album you'd like and send it to you ready to hang.

For an even more personal touch, reach out to us to add an engraved plate with an important date or a message.

Frame a personalized map

Print and frame a custom map to celebrate a significant location and date in your relationship.

Many small businesses on Etsy create digital downloads of beautiful custom maps that feature a location, a date, your names, and other personal touches.

If you have more than one date to feature, you can pair multiple maps in a custom collage frame.
