Why We Love It: This is why one of my favorite favorite gifts to give, usually paired with cash (which I hate to give, but expected in my culture). I’ve gifted these portraits several times and it’s always a favorite and I love seeing it on their walls after all these years – best wedding keepsake EVER!
Perfect for: Weddings, anniversaries (one year anniversary is paper!), housewarmings, romantic or family gifts
