Holiday shopping has never been an easy feat. And while the internet has made it infinitely more convenient, it can strip away some of the heart and soul that goes into gift giving. The solution, and Nate’s go-to? A framed piece of art. “Especially when it has a story,” says Nate.
And it’s easier than ever to pull it off thanks to Framebridge, the interior design start-up disrupting the often frustrating framing process. Nate’s proud to be on board as their new Creative Advisor and is kicking off the partnership with some best practices for thoughtful gifting.
Starting with a twist on the obvious: quickly turn a family snapshot into art by shifting it into black and white.
Another great idea? Framing a favorite recipe. An especially personalized gift with a utilitarian bonus.
You have until December 17th to upload your recipe (or photograph, or scanned momento), choose a frame (starting at $39!), and have it arrive for your loved ones by December 23rd.
Of course, Nate being Nate, he can’t resist the opportunity to recommend framing special pieces as well – check out his People article for his notes on framing scarves, notes, and more. The deadline for mailing in items to be framed by the holidays may have passed, but a giftcard is a solid and always-welcome choice.
