Holiday Gift Idea: Framed Love Letter


While browsing my favorite antique shop, I came across a yellow frame that really appealed to me. I snatched it up for a couple of bucks and then started thinking about what to do with it. When I realized that the frame is 8.5 x 11, I decided that it would be really sweet to frame letters to our baby.

I've already been writing letters about once a month throughout my pregnancy, and it's something I would like to continue throughout his childhood (kind of like a free-form baby book). I realized I could frame the most current letter in the yellow frame. Whenever I write him a new one, I can take out the old one, add it to his living, growing scrapbook, and then frame the most recent letter. Voila!

Then I realized that this idea could also be applied to your beloved partners. What a nice holiday gift! A framed love letter with the promise of more love letters to come throughout the years....

Ooh, this could also be incorporated into a wedding ceremony. You could read each other framed loved letters and then promise to continue to write new ones throughout your marriage.

Just an idea!

The yellow frame alone makes this a YES in my book. Framing the letter is ice cream on top.

Nice! This simple yet ph-so-romantic gift idea would work just as beautifully for your anniversary, birthday, Christmas, engagement, wedding or Valentine's Day.

I love this - I think it would be great for one year anniversary for the just married couple! I think I'm going to have to try this one myself!
