How waiting until the last minute can still make you a Valentine’s Day legend

Last Second2Did your Mom ever call you a last minute Charlie?  Mine did and I never knew exactly who Charlie was but I knew it was not a compliment.  But many people thrive on the pressure of delivering – at the last minute.  And when it comes to the importance of Valentine’s Day in a relationship, waiting until the last minute creates a ton of pressure.  So how will you create a last minute Valentine’s Day gift that will still make you look awesome?  A personalized magazine cover from YourCover.com can do the trick!

Think of it this way.  Imagine it’s Valentine’s Day morning and you’ve got…nothing.  Empty.  You had all good intentions of not letting things get to this point and then – here you are again.  All you need is an internet connection, a good photo (or photos) and some imagination and in less than 15 minutes you can create and even print at home your last minute Valentine’s Day gift masterpiece that will make you a legend – even if it’s only in your own mind.

Last Minute Valentine GiftIf you don’t have a decent color printer you can run out to a store to actually have it printed on nice paper and maybe buy even a frame to put it in.  Or, just in case you wanted to break out – you could plan ahead and have YourCover.com print it for you and help you get a suitable frame.  But of course if you did that you wouldn’t be a last minute Charlie.

So go ahead.  Wait.  YourCover will bail you out!

What do you get him for Valentine’s Day this year?

Personalized Valentine Magazine CoverThey say guys are easy to buy for right?  Well not all guys.

Ok, now that we have all that out of the way what can you get him for Valentine’s Day that will both surprise AND delight him?  A personalized fake magazine cover from YourCover.com delivers on both counts!   Surprise?  Check.  He will never expect it.  Delight?  Check.  And it’s not as if you don’t have a million great photos to choose from to put your guy on the cover of any magazine you can think of!

But don’t wait until the last minute.  That’s something he would do!


Being a last minute Valentine gift buyer doesn’t mean you don’t care

Valentine’s Day seems to come right after Christmas.  However forgetting to get your Valentine a gift that shows you really care is possibly worse than if you forgot a Christmas or Hanukah present!   But it would not make sense to try either.

First Day of School Photo Gift & Keepsake

First Day of School Gift and Keepsake from YourCoverIt's the First Day of School!  How will you remember this special day in your child's life?  Of course you'll take lots of photos, maybe even some video.  When my little ones went off on the bus the first time I took photos at the bus stop, plus photos getting onto the bus, and then photos getting off the bus at the end of the day!  When my daughter entered her senior year of high school, I took the last 'first day of school' photo so we could compare the two images of her heading off to kindergarten and then 12 years later heading off to her last year of high school – time flies!!

YourCover offers a unique way to celebrate and commemorate this important day in your child's life. Use our blank magazine cover template to create a "Kindergarten" or "School Days" magazine cover or choose the "Scholar" magazine cover.  

To the left is a magazine cover created by our customer Mandy in Texas. She used the blank magazine cover template to create her "Kindergarten" magazine cover.  Her son looks adorable as he heads off to school for the first time.  Mandy captured this moment in time with headlines about her son's likes, interests and what he we wants to be when he grows up.

Whichever magazine cover template you choose, it will feature your child's photo along with headlines all about their first day of school.  Use the online magazine cover editor to upload the photo. You can then personalize each headline to include the name of the school, your child's teacher, the date, a funny or special memory of the day, and more.

A YourCover personalized magazine cover is a unique and memorable 'first day of school' gift and keepsake.  Your gift can be instantly delivered when you download and save the image file to your computer for  self printing. Or let us print and frame your "first day of school" keepsake for you.


August 2013 Cover of the Month – What Makes It Special

The August 2013 Magazine Cover of the Month was designed by Sue P of Bordentown, NJ.  The Cover of the Month is chosen from the top 3 covers with the most likes in that month's Facebook album. Sue's personalized magazine cover beat out the competition from nearly 40 other entries.

August 2013 Cover of the MonthThere are several reasons Sue's personalized magazine cover came out so well.  She used our blank 'make your own title' magazine cover template and created her own title "Rock Star Living". This clever title really matched well with the photo she chose to upload.  Each headline is a funny tribute or memory about Bob whose photo graces the front cover.  Sue used each element and feature of the magazine cover editor to create a unique personalized birthday gift.  

We could tell from the comments the cover received in our album that the recipient loved his gift and his friends and Sue's friends also thought it was unique and special gift.

To create your own personalized magazine cover whether as a birthday gift, an anniversary gift or a gift 'just because', visit YourCover to choose from over 80 magazine cover templates to find the one that matches your occasion or recipient's personality or interests.  Or like Sue, choose the blank magazine cover template to create your own title!

What should the groom get the bride for their wedding?


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!
