How to celebrate a birthday with a one-of-a-kind gift

by

Unique personalized birthday magazine cover giftDo you remember the gifts you received for your last birthday?   Me neither.    Unless it was truly special or ungodly expensive, most people have trouble remembering what they received and from whom.   It doesn’t need to be that way.  A personalized fake magazine cover from YourCover is the most unique and heartfelt gift you could ever give to someone you care about.   Their reaction to your one-of-a-kind gift will be something for you to cherish while they cherish your thoughtfulness! 

Making a gift always means more than simply buying a gift.  And making a unique personalized birthday gift that can be framed and enjoyed for years and years, means even more!  The inside jokes, the photos and memories that bind people together, all can be combined in a completely personalized magazine cover that can be printed at home, at a photo shop, or by the team at Yourcover who can also professionally frame your personal creative masterpiece! 

The only problem you may end up having is that all of your other friends will become jealous that you did not make a personalized YourCover magazine cover for them.  But that can be easily fixed.   Just wait until next year! 

 

What should the groom get the bride for their wedding?

by

Gift from Groom to Bride - Personalized Wedding Magazine CoverGuys are notoriously uncreative and bad about getting gifts for their girlfriends and spouses.   When a couple decides to get married the engagement gift is a lay-up – a ring.  Since the rings (engagement and wedding) are assumed, what gift can the groom get to both surprise and delight his new bride?   How about a personalized magazine cover from YourCover?  It’s something intimate, completely personal and of course not too expensive. 

In just fifteen minutes or less you can create a gift that your bride will treasure and keep – forever.  Really, she will NEVER throw it out.  In case you grooms are not aware, women like to keep stuff forever.  I can say this from personal experience. 

You already have lots of photos, and memories of how you two met and came to be together.  Stories abound and all can be combined and compiled into a front and back personalized magazine cover for a unique photo gift that will not only impress your new bride, but also show her your creative side.  She’ll like that a lot.  

Planning a wedding is a stressful time for a groom (ok and the bride too) and I can remember my thinking how I could not wait for it all to be over and to be on that honeymoon.  I wish YourCover magazine covers had been around when I got married.  I’m sure my wife would still have saved one of the most personal gifts I could ever have given her.  There’s still time for you! 

 

An anniversary gift to remember

by

Wedding anniversaries are celebrated by the spouses more than anyone else and that’s the way it should be.  Yet family and friends of the happy couple often wish to acknowledge the benefits and accomplishments of staying together.   It’s a known fact that on an overall basis, married people live longer and are happier than their single counterparts.   

Unique Anniversary GiftMaking a completely personalized fake magazine cover for the honorees is a great and heartfelt way to show both your admiration and how much you care.    All you need is a couple of good photos and a little imagination and YourCover makes it easy to do the rest.  In as little as fifteen minutes you will have created a unique anniversay gift that will outlast almost every gift imaginable.   I note almost since diamond earrings and a cruise around the world are still pretty cool gifts too. 

Are you bored with not having a good idea on what type of gift to give your parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents or good friends?     Check out the wide variety of magazine cover templates available at YourCover.   If you cannot think of enough things to write about, no problem as YourCover has loads of headline suggestions that can help spark your own creativity. 

 Think about giving a completely unique personalized fake photo magazine gift versus let’s say an ashtray, wine glasses or flowers.  Is there really anything to debate?   

 

How about a graduation gift that will last a lifetime?

by

I remember my high school graduation all those years ago.  It was a cloudy, hot and sticky day in late June with an imminent threat of a thunderstorm.  At some point during the ceremony someone set off firecrackers – now that was memorable.   I wish that I had a personalized fake magazine cover from YourCover.com complete with photos from the day of my classmates as well as photos of my old school.   It would have been fun to have a top ten list of reasons why I was happy to graduate (ok there were more than ten – way more) and funny remembrances of thingsGraduation Fake Magazine Cover Gift that happened along the way. 

But back in the day there was nothing like YourCover personalized fake magazine covers.   So all I have are a few photos, a yellowed diploma and what I have in my memory banks.   Pretty much the same can be said of my college graduation which for whatever reason is even less clear in my memory than my high school graduation! 

What is an appropriate graduation gift?   Sure cash is great – and appreciated.  But not necessarily memorable (I guess unless it was a LOT of cash).   Why not give a gift that will be truly appreciated, remembered and is extremely affordable?   

Visit Yourcover and choose the Graduation magazine cover template to get started while there’s still plenty of time to have fun creating your completely personalized gift. 

 

Family reunions can be summer highlight

by

My immediate family is somewhat small but my extended family is pretty large and I always enjoy spending time with the cousins, aunts, uncles, parents and in-laws.    More than ten years ago we had a family reunion at a resort.   We’ve not had one since but there are many fond memories of that week that are slowly beginning to fade. 

Family Reunion Personalized Magazine CoverKeeping those memories close at hand would be so much easier today had we had the opportunity to commemorate that time with a personalized magazine cover from YourCover.   And it could have gone way beyond magazine covers as it’s easy to have the unique covers turned into t-shirts, mugs, mouse pads –even posters.  All would be a great way to remember a great week.  Yes we have photos from the event but the ability to tie them all together in one completely customized magazine cover would have been great.

A gift for a coach that will be remembered forever

by

Aside from parents and teachers, athletic coaches are some of the most influential adults in young people’s lives.  A great coach does so much more than lead his or her team on the field of play.   Winning on the field is great but winning in life is all the more important and a great coach is able to understand the difference.

When I think back on the coaches I’ve had and that my kids have had I can remember the great ones and the not-so great ones.   I often wishBest Coach Fake Magazine Cover there had been a way to acknowledge with a unique coach's gift how the team (and parents) felt about the great coach that would be more memorable than tickets to a ballgame, a plaque or a watch.   A personalized fake magazine cover from YourCover would have been just perfect.  

The inside jokes about the players on the team, their idiosyncrasies and of course the coach’s odd and often funny sayings that every member of the team can recite with ease should never be forgotten!   I can recall one of my high school coaches asking me during a tennis match in which I was trailing, if I was in a hurry to lose.  I thought about what he said, changed my approach and won the match!   And I’ve never forgotten that whenever I play now.  

I’ve actually stayed in touch with that team from many years ago but sadly lost contact with the coach who I am sure has since passed on.  I regret that we did not have the opportunity to let him know how we all felt and a personalized Best Coach magazine cover could have easily depicted all the highlights and fun we had during that championship season. 

Don’t let the opportunity pass you by to give a great and memorable gift to an influential coach.   Check out YourCover.com and start on a Best Coach magazine cover today.   Both the team and the coach will never forget it!  

 

You never forget the teacher who influenced your life

by

Think back to the teachers from your past who you can still remember today.   If you’re like me it’s a positive thing for the most part as some of them were really great, I’ve also tried hard to forget the teachers that left me cold.    I still find myself remembering things that my teachers have told me and I’m even more appreciative of the caring and influence they had on my life.   

Best Teacher Gift - fake magazine coverSome of my old teachers are even active on Facebook although it is a bit odd to be FB friends with someone that taught me in high school a very long time ago.  Yet they are closer to me in age than are my children!   Had YourCover been around at the time there are several of my former teachers for whom I would have enjoyed creating a personalized BEST TEACHER fake magazine.  I would include the inside jokes that only the teacher and my classmates would understand (and they still make me laugh so many years later).  What’s more the teachers would have loved it – and kept and treasured it I’m certain. 

When you are growing up it’s sometimes difficult to realize that a teacher is playing such an important role in your life’s development.    In fact it’s likely that Mom and Dad recognize a great teacher before the student does.  

If you are looking for a unique teacher’s gift for your teacher (or your child’s teacher), you can make Teacher Appreciation Day especially memorable with a “Best Teacher” personalized magazine cover from Yourcover.  It’s the perfect way to acknowledge and remember the best of the best when it comes to those that help shape your future.
