Instead of Splurging on New Shoes You Don’t Need, Make an Investment to Last with My Picture

These days, it seems as though the world is centered around material things. There is always a latest must-have that we ‘need’ immediately. However, the feeling of happiness these new purchases bring is fleeting. In fact, it often leaves as quick as it arrives. No matter how high-tech the gadget or shiny the bracelet, we are never fully satisfied with our material things- there is always an upgrade, always a version that we do not yet own. 

This may be all down to our phones, social media, and those advertisements that we subconsciously take in as we scroll. As a result, we live in worlds filled to the brim with stuff that we do not necessarily care about nor need. So, what is it that does make us truly happy? What can fill that void that flashy material things clearly cannot? The answer is simple: investing into memories.

Memories are the best gift that we can receive. Think about what you would grab if your home was to go up in flames. It’s most likely not a blingy accessory or a pair of expensive shoes. Instead, you would grab something with sentimental value- something that is connected to a memory. So, if you’re considering treating yourself or someone close to you to a gift, for whatever the occasion, why not make it a meaningful one? A framed photo of a special moment will certainly go further than a voucher. 

A special gift can be created with the help of brand such as My Picture that offer a framed photo print of your choice in a slimline frame with a timeless aesthetic. You can even choose a colour that matches the shades within your photo such as classic pure black or white, warming wood tones, or a stylish vintage silver.

What’s more, these framed pictures are digitally printed on premium paper, giving you pin-sharp resolution and brilliant colours. The result is a print of stunning intensity, instantly bringing those memories back to life.

Another reason why investing into memories is so important is down to the fickle tendencies of our modern devices. Have you ever been on a holiday only to have your phone stolen or broken? If you have, you may immediately recognise that one of the primary concerns is losing all of your precious photos from the trip. Of course, the expense of a new phone is a significant burden, but the phone itself is easily replaced unlike the snippets of memories that are trapped inside of it. That is why it’s so important to remember to develop your photos into something you can physically hold in your hands, such as canvas prints. 

My Picture allow you to decorate your home and walls with top quality photo canvas that can be personalised with the finish, size and edge of your choice. All of the canvas prints come stretched on a wooden frame but for an additional cost, you can choose an outer Premium Frame to give your photo canvas an extra- special presentation. These “shadow” or “floating” frames leave a gap around the folded edges of your canvas, so the whole of your print remains visible. You may have seen this striking design before in some modern art galleries!

So before you splurge on another materialistic item, have a think about what you’ll really appreciate a few years from now. Luckily, we have a code for you, so your investment into memories doesn’t have to break the bank!
