As a fan of sentimental and personalised items I am always on the look out for different idea's when it comes to gifts for myself and for others. There are so many personalised goods out there on the market that it can be difficult deciding on which to choose, you almost feel spoilt for choice. I also feel that having so much variation out there actually makes it difficult to discover something truly unique and extra special but I certainly found that with The Day That...
The Day That is truly innovative, it's a website where you can buy photo gifts that are shot on dates that are special to you. Founder Gavan Goulder came up with the idea when he took a photo for his friends to celebrate the birth of their child. The idea must of gone down a treat because that's when The Day That was born. Since then a team of photographers have stood on the coastline of Cornwall to shoot the sunrises to mark all of our special dates.
I was offered the chance to review my own framed photo and I was so happy to oblige. I of course selected Noah's birthdate as my special date because what is as special as the birth of your child?
I simply went onto the website and browsed through the various photo's taken on the morning of November 12th 2013 and chose the image which was my favourite. I then selected the size and frame and waited for the delivery.
With being such a fan of sentimental items I knew I would love the photograph before it even arrived but I just didn't know how much. I actually cried when I opened the packaging. I gazed at the image that was taken just hours after my son was born, the sun rise on his first day and I couldn't help but feel choked up.
The image and frame themselves are beautiful and such a superb quality. The hand written date and personalisation is the icing on the cake and I hope that they keep that personal touch as the website just grows and grows, which I know it will. For a photograph/artwork to have such an emotional impact on someone is just astounding and they deserve all the praise they receive.
Our print is now proudly displayed in the dining room above our fireplace. I wanted it to be the focal point of the room and it really is. Every time I set foot in that room I instantly smile. Our framed picture is "classic sized" and costs £120.00 which I think is a very fair price for such a premium and bespoke piece.
The Day That weren't just kind enough to send me the framed picture to review but have also given me the chance to give one away to you guys. I can't stress enough how much I am in awe of our photo and I am so happy to be able to offer you one too!
