What could be more personal than a picture of you and your beloved? To make it gift-worthy, commission an artist to create a fun rendering of your favorite couple photo and frame it. It could be a watercolor version, a pop art version, or a Victorian-style vignette complete with ornate borders. Look around your local job boards or Facebook Marketplace for artists offering their services.
