Those Pesky In-Laws ;)

There are some real horror stories about in-laws out there. I don’t think Natasha will be running into any problems with hers though – she definitely scored a ton of points by gifting a custom portrait to her mother-in-law for Christmas that included her hubby, his mom (aka her mother-in-law), and their pup.

Throwin it back for mom and dad

Vintage is all the rage, so why not incorporate some of this magical nostalgia while creating a custom portrait this holiday? Mark did just that and had me recreate a one-of-a-kind photo from 1976 of his dad, brother, and him. It’s wicked cool and groovy – especially those tennis racket pants!

Your One True Love

You’ve probably snapped tons of pics together, so this could really be as simple as choosing your fav and having me replicate it. Or we could go completely over-the-top and add in all the bell’s and whistles – it’s totally up to you! Whatever the end result, I’m honoured to create these special pieces so often – there is a lot of love in this world to go around. And the holiday season is a perfect time to celebrate it!


Custom Portrait Christmas Gift for Best Friends by Chelsdrawsyou


If your friends are actually the family you choose, there’s no better way to commemorate those clothes-swapping, late-night talking, us-against-the-world moments then by a unique iPhone fingerpainting. – because could you guys look any cuter together! That’s what I did for Katie and her roommates, who by the way, are living their best sex-and-the-city life in NYC!

Maybe you’ve recently started a family of your own

It’s so so special - that time in your life when you start creating this unit that’s precious and perfect and all yours. Ari surprised his beautiful wife with this custom portrait of their young family. This request was even sweeter because 80% of my clientele are women. So attention gentlemen; a guaranteed way to melt her heart is to gift her a portrait of her all-time favourite people. Trust me - it will mean the world to her!

…But there’s always room for the whole fam jam

Maybe you really want to include the whole clan (I’m talkin cousins and pets) even though it’s impossible to get everyone together for a photo. Alicia and I created this piece by combining three different photographs together. This is exactly why I give you the option to add up to five different pictures to your online custom portrait order.

People like gifts that you’ve put some thought into. A giftcard to VS is great, and a surprise Benjamin Franklin in a Christmas card sure does help with the gas money, but the ones that people are going to remember - or maybe even shed a tear of joy over - are those ideas that are uniquely constructed by you – with love at the forefront.
