the perfect gift
A pencil portrait makes a very special 1st anniversary gift. I can draw it from any good clear photograph - either taken on the day of the wedding or, perhaps, on the honeymoon.
In fact, any favourite photograph of the couple can make a beautiful portrait.
Although, being paper, it makes an ideal first anniversary gift, it can also be an ideal thank-you gift for the bride or groom's parents.
Alan and Anne
Alan had intended to give this portrait as a gift to his mother-in-law on his anniversary to thank her for their wedding.
He ended up keeping it and giving it to Anne instead!
