Giving a family tree as a gift is a great way to provoke nostalgia and relive memories together. Whether you buy a family tree arrangement or craft your own from scratch, photographs make a thoughtful gift for any family member. There are albums, frames and even decorative ornament versions of family trees that make for great displays in any home.
Family Tree Albums
- There are family tree versions of photo albums that are simple to compose and make for a thoughtful gift. By printing out digital photos or having them ordered, you can easily place them into albums in chronological order for the gift recipient. If you're giving it as a gift to parents, you can get two separate albums for each side of the family. Family tree books are a great way to emphasize your heritage and reflect on your roots.
- If you want to get crafty, you can easily compose your own family tree and make it a gift with a frame. By printing out or ordering photos, you can paste and matte them to large card stock in chronological order. With a craft marker, you can draw a tree, date each photo and add names. Put the portrait together with any simple picture frame and you have the perfect family tree gift. Crafting it is a great way to add your own special touch.
Family tree frames
- Family tree frames are common these days in home decor stores. While they tend to be more ornamental, they still make a great keepsake and display piece in any home. Trees with their own frames often call for specific-shaped photos. Even though you may have to cut photos into these shapes to put the tree together, it still makes a thoughtful gift.
