Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Now the mad dash to finding great holiday shopping deals is here. Are you the type of person who rather stay at home and shop online than try to make your way through the crowds at the store? Good, me too :)
After adventuring out a few years ago during Black Friday, I swore I would never do it again, the whole craze was just too much for me. I looked back at holiday consumerism, marketing schemes and what we should be trying to embody during the holidays, and decided to go after more personalized gifts, homemade crafts, and spending time with family right after Thanksgiving. So my shopping day is Cyber Monday!
With so many gift ideas out there, it can be hard to decide what to get the island lover in your life. But if you're like me, and really want something that will speak to our creativity, places you've traveled, and life at the beach, look no further than customized letter art gifts from A to Z Letter Art.
A to Z Letter Art's owners Deb and Lary have traveled the world, capturing landscapes and nature that resemble letters of the alphabet. They even visit Sanibel Island every year! I bet all you Sanibel Island travelers recognize where those full-color on location SANIBEL letters above were taken!
S: from the entry door to St. Isabel Catholic Church
A: the Sanibel lighthouse
N: three of Sanibel's native palm trees
I: from the entrance to the Sanibel Marina
B: from under the causeway
E: from one of Sanibel's native palm trees
L: from the sculpture in front of the Sanibel library
If you've never been to Sanibel Island, put it on your bucket list! It's a true gem in the United States, and my favorite beach destination with all the shelling, seafood, biking, nature walks, and dolphins at sunset you could want in a beach vacation.
A to Z Letter Art's on location Sanibel art has four different groupings of letters that spell SANIBEL, so any interior island decor style can be found! Each grouping can be built out to either 4'' x 6'' horizontal or 4 x 6'' vertical, with 2'' x 3'' options also available. Anyone who orders a horizontal letter art piece gets a FREE 4'' tall, black twisted wire easel.
The letter art is displayed in a "floating" frame sequence, with each frame backed by 1/8" thick MDF and a piece of protective glass on the front held by clips. The double rail system on the back of the art is custom built by Lary, and features two hangers on each end for easy hanging. If you rather display the art in the easel, they fit great on mantels, entry tables, coffee tables,or shelving in offices.
Gifting beachy memories of Sanibel Island comes easy with A to Z Letter Art. Here's a couple ideas on how to gift beachy memories through Sanibel Island letter art this holiday season.
1. Plan a spring break or summer vacation trip with friends or family for next year. Surprise them Christmas morning when they unwrap your A to Z Letter Art gift that has captured what memories are to come!
2. If Sanibel Island is your native homeland (lucky you!), treat yourself to a Christmas gift that captures your love for the island.
3. Are you a condo owner? Welcome your guests from around the world with a preview of the island in letter art displayed on an entry wall, or on an easel on the coffee table in the living room.
4. Past Sanibel Island vacationers will love unwrapping any A to Z Letter Art that makes them feel like they have their own piece of the island with them even though they're miles away, and bring back the good times under the sun.
Beachy memories can also be gifted through custom letter art in any word up to 9 letters! A to Z Letter Art has over 900 letters for you to choose from to create your own personalized gift in a word of your choice!
I customized my own A to Z Letter Art piece with the word NURSE to gift to my sister for Christmas.
1. Chose my word to customize
2. Picked the style of each letter
3. Decided on a vertical frame with 4'' x 6'' letter art
4. Then placed my order! Easy.
My sister will be graduating from nursing school next month and likes the beach too, so customizing each letter made the piece complete for the life events about to happen! The art is very well made, and carefully packaged so that it arrives safely and is easy to open and repackage if gifting to someone else.
When it comes to wrapping Christmas gifts, I like to choose a theme to do. This year, I chose brown paper, tight jute string, seashells, and white paint.
Wrapping the letter art was super easy to do because the protective wrapping that it came in was already very well done.
