Have you been looking for the perfect gift and unable to establish what it should be? Have you considered the picture keychain? In reality you probably haven’t; you may have dismissed it as you were worried that it would not look significant enough or that the picture keychain simply wouldn’t last as long as you wanted it to.
However, this is not the case! There are many different types of picture key chain’s available; you simply pick the one that suits you and your needs best.
These 5 ideas should help you find the right one for your needs.
The picture keychain is usually thought of as a clear Perspex case with a picture sandwiched between. But this does not have to be the way you present your keychain.
You can actually choose any shape for your keychain; whether the receiver loves guitars, teddy bears or automobiles; have the keychain created in a shape that will amuse and inspire them. This will ensure they keep it with them and love the gift.
Enclose the Picture
Your picture can be enclosed to look like a book, diary or simply a locket style keychain. This is better for your picture as it is protected from the elements and the daily abuse received when being put in and out of your pocket.
Whatever you choose to enclose it in should reflect the interests of the person you are giving it to. This will show that it is a thoughtful gift as well as practical.
Create the Picture yourself
To really show how much you care you can select a picture yourself or, better still, make your own. You do not even need to be good at art to do this!
A hand drawn picture will be small enough to disguise your artwork a little and personalized enough for anyone to be happy receiving it.
The key thing to remember when creating a picture yourself is that it must be something that connects to the receiver; if it links the two of you it is better still. The fact that it will trigger a shared memory is much more important than the quality of the art work!
The classic keychain used to be for just that; attaching your keys to. But now you can purchase a wide array of picture key chains which serve another purpose.
You may get one that attaches to a charm bracelet, is a bracelet itself or one you attach to your bag. The range of options is almost limitless; meaning that you will be able to locate the right one for each of your loved ones and ensure they love their gift.
Give A Kit
If you are really stuck for what picture fits your picture keychain gift then you can choose not to give one! Simply provide your loved one with the keychain and let them put their own picture in it.
Alternatively you could purchase a kit which will force them to create their own keychain. However, if you decide on this option it is worth selecting a kit which simply allows them to order the picture keychain; it is likely to be a better quality and they will receive the gift. If they have to make it themselves it will lack the personal touch from you and may never be made.
