Have you thought about Christmas shopping/gifts yet? Every time school starts I try to get into the mode of thinking about gifts. I do this so we can plan accordingly and get a few gifts at a time rather than gifts for everyone in the few weeks before Christmas. It not only prevents excess spending, credit card use during December, but it prevents much of the stress that can come with holiday shopping. We have time to plan each gift, put thought into it and get our loved ones something unique and personal. The first gift I’ve been consider is something unique for my dad. Believe it or not, it’s poster frames!
The Unique Gift
Yes, poster frames. My dad is an avid old movie poster collector. Right now he has a bunch rolled up in the corner of his office. My mom has been getting on him for some time now about doing something with them because she’s tired of seeing them. Well, me being me, I want to solve this problem for my mom while doing something nice for my dad! It’s a win-win! I did some research on what to do with movie posters to get some ideas and I thought for him it would be best to frame them and hang them either in the basement (his man cave) or in his office. It was really this article I saw on The Beauty of Decorating with Posters that convinced me this was the route to take. They really do look great on the walls!
Finding Poster Frames
So, now that I had my plan I was left with the task of finding some poster frames. My being me, I am always looking for the best prices I can find so I searched for wholesale poster frames and came across some fabulous looking frames that would go great in their house! My first gift has already been thought out and bought and school just started this week! I’m so happy to have my holiday shopping started and can’t wait to move on to the next recipient on my list to find something unique for her, too!
