Here is a really neat product! It is from Milson Road and is called The Daily Portrait. Milson Road takes a special occasion and creates a wonderful commemorative framed print. They can do birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, babies births, whatever your special occasion might be! I had one done for our 28th anniversary. They took the year we were married and found some news from that year and then they gathered news from the date of our anniversary. At the bottom of the portrait is an engraved plate of the special date. The left side of the picture is when we were married and the right is from the anniversary. You also get to pick the frame, background colors (mat) and your font style. This is a $165 value.

I am really impressed with the finished product. I will tell you that you will only be seeing the proof of my portrait because even though Milson Road carefully packages everything, and believe me, it was wrapped in tons of bubble wrap, the glass in my portrait was damaged in shipping. Milson Road has very graciously told me they are ready to ship a replacement. I was going to wait, but I really wanted to get this post up in case someone wanted it as a gift.
About Milson Road:
"Milson Road. This has long been a sentimental favorite for us, so we felt it was the perfect name for our family-owned and operated business.As our home-away-from-home during a time living in Australia, Milson Road represents memories of adventures, celebrations and special holidays spent with family and friends from near and far. Each spring, a large Jacaranda tree bloomed in a wild burst of lavender over Milson Road. This beautiful, annual event was always worth celebrating — and documenting — so we thought it only fitting to use its signature lavender shade and iconic branches to help tell our Milson Road story.Those wonderful years back on Milson Road inspired us to share our founding signature product, The Daily PortraitTM, with others. Mark originally developed handmade versions of The Daily Portrait as special gifts for nieces and nephews. After the birth of our first child, we were finally able to hang our own version of The Daily Portrait in our home on Milson Road. Friends and family members began requesting their own versions of The Daily Portrait to commemorate important milestones in their lives and to give as gifts on special occasions. When we came back to the U.S., The Daily Portrait came with us, and so did the passion to someday create our company, Milson Road.We are proud to share The Daily Portrait with you and your family. With this one-of-a-kind gift you can capture the events of an extraordinary day, and consider that day saved — forever.We hope you enjoy your visit to Milson Road, and find a sentimental favorite while you’re here. Thanks for stopping by."
The portrait itself is simply beautiful and I highly recommend Milson Road. It does take 3-4 weeks for your portrait to arrive, so make sure you take that into account when you order. Check their FAQ page if you have any questions before ordering.
