Our love affair with social media is no secret; Instagram users post 26,740 photos every minute of the day, while Snapchat users share as many as 527,760 photos per minute. Facebook ranks first with two billion active users that upload 300 million photos per day. With mobile phones qualifying as digital equivalents of photo albums, some people argue that physical photographs may have lost their charm. However, here are 3 reasons why they still make the best gifts for loved ones:
1. A Timeless Gift
Do you find yourself wondering what gifts stand the test of time? It’s a materialistic world, but photography still qualifies as an experience beyond monetary measure. Photography is near synonymous with memory; each time you give someone a photograph, you’re giving them a slice of your life.
2. Customized Gift
Photography is an efficient art form, a concept brought to life with medium mastery and preserved for years by an artistic vision. Giving someone a customized painting is as though you’re giving them a one-of-a-kind experience in terms of colors, style, and ideas. Best of all, it is easy to personalize the gift further based on the occasion. For example, who wouldn’t love a 3D embossed oil painting of a picture-perfect moment shared with the love of their life?
3. An Ageless Monument
Art is free of boundaries, which makes it a valid gift for people of nearly all ages. There’s rarely anyone who hasn’t enjoyed the shades, colors, and strokes that synchronize seamlessly to revive joyful memories. It encourages healthy relationships as the sentiments are rarely ever replicable. The feelings evoked are a graceful reminder of what you are capable of doing and how much you mean to someone, making the gift giver come across as considerate, compassionate, and thoughtful.
