Every gift sends a message. For instance, if you give someone a new cell phone what you’re really saying is: “Now you have to pick up anytime I call.” Jewelry says: “Your acceptance of this present requires you to forgive me for up to three offenses.” A blender says: “Next time I visit I expect a well-blended daiquiri.” Don’t disappoint your friends or family with a gift that sends the wrong message. Learn the language of gift giving with this handy Gift Translator. Here is a list of gifts and what you’re really saying by giving them…
The Gift: Fruit Cake
Translation: You seem to be a person of non-discriminating taste.
Consider instead: Wall art. This gift says: “You are very cultured and have great taste in art.” For wall art to fit any gift budget visit any Pictures Plus location and browse their selection of Publisher’s Specials.
The Gift: A Toaster
Translation: Perhaps you can use this toaster I received as a gift last year.
The Gift: A Tool Set
Translation: Maybe now you can finally fix that leaky faucet.
Consider instead: A framed photo. A framed photo says: “I love you even though you neglect the ‘Honey Do’ list.” Visit any Pictures Plus store to browse our wide selection of ready-made frames.
The Gift: A Vacuum Cleaner
Translation: Perhaps you should consider cleaning your floors once in a while
Consider instead: A custom frame. A custom frame says: “You’re a special person and you deserve something much better than a vacuum cleaner.” Remember: the Design Consultants at Pictures Plus can frame just about anything. Bring in any special memento and they will work with you to create a beautiful display solution.
The Gift: Wine
Translation: I know you don’t know much about wine so you’ll automatically assume this is a good vintage.
Consider instead: A print on canvas. A print on canvas says: “Here’s a one-of-a-kind work of art for a one-of-a-kind loved one.”
Still don’t know what to get? Remember: if in doubt, just pick up a gift from Pictures Plus. We have a wide selection of gifts you can customize or personalize for your loved one that deserves nothing less than a one-of-a-kind gift. Happy Holidays!
Choosing the perfect gift among a sea of nondescript offerings can be challenging. When you want to give the perfect gift, give one that’s personalized or custom-made. Before you read any further, let me dispel the myth that all personalized gifts are expensive. At Pictures Plus all our custom-made products are made centrally at our factory on Oahu by experienced artisans. This is the most efficient way of making custom products. What that means for you is the best price on custom made products such as custom frames, 3-D acrylic showcases and personalized laser engraved products.
Here’s a list of our five favorite personalized presents. We guarantee that these memorable items will not be re-gifted.
Take just about any special memento and put a custom frame around it. You just turned that memento into a story-telling work of art that can be displayed for generations. And don’t assume that just because something is three-dimensional that we can’t frame it. As our designers like to say “You name it, we frame it”. Note: normal turnaround time to complete a custom order is 7-10 days on Oahu and 2-3 week on Neighbor Islands.
This velvet-lined keepsake box holds a 4″ x 6″ photo and can be engraved to display the special message of your choosing. Use the keepsake box to store jewelry, photos or just trinkets. Note: personalized orders usually take up to 7 days for Oahu and up to 2 weeks for Neighbor Islands.
This attractive Koa sign can be hung in the entryway, office, on a child’s bedroom door or anywhere else you can imagine. Choose one of four Koa pendants to go on the left and have a special message laser engraved on the right. Note: personalized orders usually take up to 7 days for Oahu and up to 2 weeks for Neighbor Islands.
Plain Jane frames not getting the right message across? Say what you want loud and clear with engravable frames. Pictures Plus has a variety of frames available to be laser engraved. Just look for the “Engravable” tag displayed next to select ready-made frames and let one of the friendly designers know what you would like the frame to say. Note: personalized orders usually take up to 7 days for Oahu and up to 2 weeks for Neighbor Islands.
If you’re like most people, you have thousands of digital images on your hard drive and the number of those images that you have printed is close to zero. Show your loved ones how special those photos are to you by turning them into works of art on canvas and giving them as gifts. Gifts don’t get much more personal and special than that! Ordering is easy – order online or drop by any Pictures Plus location. If you don’t have your images in a digital format, don’t fret – we can scan your prints too (max scan size: 8″ x 10″). Note: canvas prints take up to 7 days for Oahu and up to 2 weeks for Neighbor Islands.
