With Valentine's Day right around the corner, many of us are still scrambling to find that perfect gift for our special someone. I don't know about you, but when it comes to gift giving, I prefer finding unique, meaningful gifts. Sure, chocolates and stuffed animals are cute, but do they really say "I love you" in the way you want it to be said? It seems to me that Valentine's Day is incredibly commercialized, and while I am all for having a holiday to celebrate love, I also think that cookie-cutter gifts can be....well....lame. Yep, I said it. Valentine's Day gifts can be quite lame and unimaginative. I would much rather get a gift that comes from the heart than receive one that clearly comes from an overly decorated shelf at my local Walmart.
That's why I was so excited when I discovered the unique and meaningful gifts from Light Affection. Light Affection is a mom-owned company in Southern California that specializes in creating beautiful night lights and light boxes that are custom made from customer's photos. When lit from behind, the image magically comes alive! Each light takes hours to make, and since there are no molds or dies used, each piece is truly a unique work of art. The finished pieces are stunning, too, and are designed to fit in seamlessly with any decor. Each personalized night light comes surrounded by an attractive wooden frame. For a small additional fee, you can even have an easel-like display stand included.
Each gift from Light Affection is carefully and lovingly created from the highest quality materials, and the products are made to last a lifetime. The carving is made from a blend of polymer and natural materials, making it incredibly durable. The beautiful image will remain perfect for many years, without changing or cracking over time. These beautiful lights are also quite energy efficient and can be turned on during both day and night for maximum effect. The light bulbs used are long-lasting, cost effective to use, and will not get hot.
For my Light Affection Night Light, I chose a photo of my daughter, Sophie. She's such a beautiful little girl and is growing so fast! Naturally, I wanted to capture that little angel face in this piece so we can remember it forever. Here is my original photo, taken on Sophie's 2nd birthday:
And here is the finished product from Light Affection. It's amazing how much detail is captured in this gorgeous night light!
Overall, I am very pleased with my night light from Light Affection. I love the wooden frame, and the quality of this piece is fantastic. I have turned my night light on both during the day and at night, and it produces a beautiful, soft glow while showcasing my daughter's face perfectly. Not only are the products from Light Affection flawless, the customer service is also stellar. This company is a joy to work with, and they pay very close attention to detail. The folks at Light Affection are committed to making each customer's experience a wonderful one.
I would definitely recommend Light Affection to anyone who wants to give a meaningful gift that is sure to bring smiles for years to come. These personalized photo gifts would make a great gift for birthdays, anniversaries, celebrating a new baby, and yes, even for Valentine's Day! This says "I love you" so much better than some sad little box of chocolates or flowers that will die in a week!
