Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Posted January 14, 2015

Ah yes, the sweetest time of year at Peterson Picture Co. It’s wonderful that we have an endearing holiday in the middle of our coldest months to keep us warm! Get a head start on Valentine’s Day gift giving today! To help you get started, we have put together a few gift ideas for your sweetheart.

1. Custom Artwork Framing

You can bring in any photo to Peterson Picture Co. and we can work with you to find a suitable presentation! You can bring in a photograph for conservation and framing or you can bring in a photo to be enlarged by our professional image printing service. Perhaps a stretched canvas print of you and your loved one would make a graphic display of love? Maybe you have some vintage photographs of your parents wedding day that you would like to be preserved? Either way, bring in your imagery and we can talk about methods!

2. Shadoxbox Presentation

Shadowboxes are a great way to preserve materials that are not on paper. They are constructed with three sides of finished wood and a glass top so that you can see into the tableau. Maybe you have a small collection of memorabilia from throughout your relationship that you want preserved. You can bring in flowers from your first date, ticket stubs, heirloom jewelry, figurines, just about anything! And when you come in for a custom made shadowbox, it will be built to fit whatever your treasure you beloved has given you. Come in today and we can build your vignette!

3. Chicago Art Prints

Maybe you and your pal haven’t been dating that long but you still want to get them something meaningful. We have a selection of professionally framed art prints of historic Chicago landmarks and vintage maps that would make ideal Valentine’s day presents for the architecture or history buff or for someone looking for a little Chicago love in their abode! Come in and check them out!

Visit us today and we can make this your most treasured Valentine’s Day yet! Mention this blog post and receive 10% off any custom art project that you bring in (exp 2/14/15)
