Canvas—A Clever and Classy Gift

A Deeply Appreciated Gift

Looking for meaningful gifts for your many upcoming family events? April’s the perfect time to plan for those wedding, graduation or Mother’s Day gifts, and canvases are the perfect gifts for such special occasions. While fast and easy, a canvas is a thoughtful, substantial and always appreciated gift that shows just how much you care. Check out these ideas for your spring and summer gift giving.

(Shown above are “Mothers Day Tribute” by Michelle Wolfley, a 20 x 16 canvas, template 56489 and “Dahlia Wedding Canvas” by Sandra Dovre, an 8 x 20 canvas, template 65893 that’s part of a complete wedding collection.)


Wedding Memories

If you’re involved with the wedding and have access to the photos, preserve those feelings of joy and promise by creating a canvas that’s matched to their wedding invitations and books. Shown here are Darcie Toom’s “Blessed Wedding Canvas” a 24 x 18 canvas with the deep wrap, template 83895; Kristen Melnyk’s 12 x 12 canvas template 78762, “You and Me” and Roxanne Buchholz’ 12 x 12 canvas template 66411, “HM Wedding White Canvas.” Search the Template Gallery for “wedding” with “canvas” selected as the product. Many of the wedding collections have a canvas as part of the set.

For the New Couple

Want the young couple to know how much you are pulling for them and their future together? Canvases as décor for the new couple’s home are the perfect wedding gift. Take your favorite photo of the two of them and make Wendy Bailey’s “The Hands of Time” 20 x 16 canvas, template 52700. They’ll treasure it forever. Don’t have photos of the bride and groom but want a really meaningful gift? Here’s a solution, try “The ABC's of Us Canvas” by Kelly Wolfer. It’s an 18 x 24 deep canvas, template 59317 that can either have the new last name under the initial or the first names of the couple. The ABC’s that follow are attributes that anyone would find inspiring. (This template or the matching 11 x 14 poster version makes a great graduate gift too.)

Graduation Gifts

Give the new graduate a gift that helps him or her set lofty goals for the new life ahead. Add your inspirational quote to any of our 8 x 8 canvases. The message that came on your card or the words you’d love them to live by all can have a longer life and resonate more deeply while hanging on your young adult’s walls. Many of the canvases made to display a photo of a child work for graduates. We chose “Do Great Things” by Lynda Angelastro, template 58393, for a male graduate and “Wish” by Tanja Rigby, template 29172, for a female graduate.

Making Mother’s Day Meaningful

Nothing pleases most moms more than having photos of loved ones decorating their homes. Add the upscale look of a canvas to a photo they’ve been dying to display and you’ve got a gift for mom or grandma this Mother’s Day that’s sure to be a winner. Canvases in our popular 12 x 12 gift-giving size that fit the bill perfectly include “HM Cute as a Button” by Roxanne Buchholz, template 66406 and “Grandparents are Gifts” by Leanne Reist-Barr, template 69186. “Call It a Family” by HM Signature Templates, a 20 x 16 canvas, template 29531 is also a wonderful, larger canvas to show off your family.

Impact and Value

In addition to being the perfect present for all your important occasions, April’s an especially good time to make your canvases because each and every one is an additional 10% off this month. Show just how much you care with a canvas. It’s fast, it’s easy and it’s a fantastic gift!
