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.

Are you planning a family reunion this summer?    Well if so then take lots of photos – both planned and spontaneous that you can then use to create a lasting memory of your special week.   Choose the YourCover Family Reunion magazine cover template to make a magazine cover to give to family members is easy and fun and everyone will be both surprised and grateful.

Unique Anniversary Gift is May Cover of the Month

Each month our customers add their personalized magazine covers to our Gallery of Covers. We then add these covers to an album on our Facebook page.  Emails go out and posts get circulated on Facebook letting everyone know that it is time for them to visit that month's album to help us choose the Cover of the Month.  Visitors to our Facebook album then 'like' whichever covers they think are the best. Customers can tag and share their magazine cover design with their friends to try to get as many likes as possible. At the end of the voting period (typically 3 days), we choose the Cover of the Month from among the three fake magazine covers with the most likes.

The May 2013 Cover of the Month is a 6th anniversary gift that Michele K of Sneads Ferry, NC made.  The photo is super cute and fun!  She used our standard "Happy Anniversary" magazine cover template but then personalized it to her occasion by adding the word "Sixth" to the title.  For being chosen as the May Cover of the Month Michele has received a gift code for a free magazine cover print and wood frame (with free shipping too of course).  We're sure you'll think that Michele's design is a fun example of a personalized magazine cover and is a unique and memorable anniversary gift.

Below is a recent review about a 50th birthday magazine cover made by Judy V of Aurora, IL that explains why YourCover is a unique 50th birthday gift idea

"Selecting a gift for the person who has everything is quite difficult, especially if it's a milestone birthday. This was a great idea and Your Cover makes customer service a top priority! I was quite impressed. After sending the payment info, etc., I got e-mails from customer service that the picture was blurry. Most companies would have just made it, I paid for it. They did not and helped me when I sent additional pictures until the quality was top notch. Not many places do that and I would/will definitely use them again!"
