When it is time to think of a unique gift for someone’s birthday or anniversary, many times we aren’t sure what to do. We could do a gift card or something less original, but where is the fun in that? I recently learned about this great new website, which helps you create one of a kind photo collages.
RemindsMeofU takes the photo collage to the next level. Instead of just a regular collage of photos, you can personalize it to make it truly yours. You can customize your collage using as few as 15 photos up to 76!! Each one includes a “reminds me” block. You can edit this to make it say what you would like, but the number stays the same.
For instance, if you select 24 photos, your box will say “24 things that remind me of _______” and you can fill in the blank. You could say “24 things that remind me of our wedding” or “24 things that remind me of vacation” or even “24 things that remind me of you.” The ideas are endless and within your control!
Making your collage is so easy!! First of all, you head to RemindsMeofU. On the first page, you will select the size you want, which is based upon the number of images (which also affects the price):
- 15 – 34 images for $89 framed
- 35 – 47 images for $109 framed
- 48 – 69 images for $129 framed
- 70 – 76 images for $149 framed
Once you select the size/price you want, you will decide upon the number of photos you want to add and select that template. I chose Number 15 for my kids.
Next, you just click on Edit Number Square and change the wording to make it your own. I went with “15 things that remind me of my blessings.” I then opted to add in my own message which reads “Couldn’t Imagine Life Without You.” Once that was done, I started uploading my photos. You can drag them around to re-arrange them however you would like, until you are satisfied with how it looks. I had SO much fun doing this. The only difficult part was deciding which photos I wanted to add to mine! After a bit of time, I was able to create my masterpiece:
I selected my frame and mat (opted for black frame with white mat and black background (as I wanted my photos to stand out). I headed through checkout (which was very simple). Within a few days, my collage arrived. I was very impressed with the packaging — there was no way that this would have had any damage at all.
I am a believer in “you get what you pay for.” Sometimes, the deal is just not worth it because the quality is not there. This is one item, which I can say is worth the cost as it is a quality item, which has the added bonus of bringing a smile to my face!
If you are looking for something for someone special this Valentine’s Day, I would definitely take a look at RemindsMeofU – you won’t be disappointed (and neither will your recipient)!!! Make sure that you follow them on Twitter and/or Facebook.
