February is almost here, and we all know what that means…..Valentine’s Day! Yes, the day that brings hope to some and fear to others.  Most of us are clueless when it comes to choosing the right gift, and it’s never fun searching for a last minute Valentine’s Day gift.  But one thing is for sure, whether you believe in celebrating or not, you have to do something for Valentine’s Day!!

We’ve worked hard to remove some of the uncertainty for you, with a few simple photo ideas that you can pull of this Valentine’s Day.  Whether you’re celebrating for the 1st time or the 101st (and good for you if you are!), we’ve got some ideas that will certainly keep you out of the doghouse.

Lovers photo-booth prints

Grab your camera and take a few photos of you and your partner making silly faces.  Line the photos up vertically, and you have DIY photo booth series!  This is a great way to show off your personality and your love (or really, really like) for one another.

You can pull this off this great Valentine’s Day gift idea with multiple square format Fractures.  Make something that puts a smile on all faces (canine included).


“Thinking about you” prints

Collect images that remind you of your significant other, and turn them into a “Thinking about you” collection.  Whether it’s their favorite animal, favorite food, their dream destination, that playful phrase they’re always saying, their pet name for you…anything with sentimental value can work here. The objective is to show them that you pay attention to the little things that make them special.


Vacation photo mix

Remember that vacation (or honeymoon) you took oh so long ago!?  How about you rescue those photos from your computer and create an “Our Adventures” collection!  You can start with one print and add to the wall each time you visit a new place together.  And since each photo has a story, you can plan an evening around reminiscing about the adventures you’ve had.

Mix and match different Fracture sizes for this project, and create something that’s totally unique to your relationship.


“I heart you” prints

If you’re a couple that loves to snap pics of regular ol’ life together, then why not gather those photos and create an “I heart you” wall (name is up for debate).  Each photo will tell a story, and you can have a fun time creating your display, heart or otherwise.

Fracture square format prints are perfect here – use them to create a gift that comes directly from the heart (pun intended).


Celebrate your kids

Do something that puts your kids on display.  Whether it’s gathering up their artwork and making an “Our Little Artist” collection or gathering shots of your entire family together, creating something that celebrates that your kids’ are sure winners.

And did we mention that you can easily print kids art with Fracture!  Just scan the artwork or take a photo of it (since macaroni art probably won’t scan well), and you can turn the masterpieces into Fractures that will last a lifetime.


Get colorful

What’s your Valentine’s favorite color?  Hopefully, you remember it ; )  If you do, you can create a display of photos in that color scheme.  You can incorporate some of his or her favorite things into the display (places, things, etc.), or you can just get goofy and use random images.  You’ll get brownie points for remembering their favorite color and for creating a gift that’s personalized to them.



There are many things you can do to show your Valentine that you care.  Don’t be afraid to try something new and be sure to make it thoughtful.  It really is the thought that counts here, so just make sure that everything you do is from the heart.

If any of the ideas above inspired you to make a personalized Valentine’s Day gift, let us make it happen for you!  And sign up for the Fracture newsletter to get the scoop on everything that’s new at Fracture.
