Paint Your Life Hero 2
CNN  — 

When it comes to personalized gifts for the holidays, there are different levels of personalization. On one hand, there’s a monogrammed stocking stuffer — and on the other hand, there’s a handmade portrait of you and your loved one’s greatest memory together, captured by Paint Your Life. The former, while it may make them smile for a moment, often ends up shoved into a holiday storage box in the back of the garage. The latter, which makes them smile for a lifetime, ends up front and center in a special location so they can admire it daily. It also makes them think of you every single time they look at it.

A personalized family portrait is a gift that comes straight from your heart. It’s unique, it’s deeply touching and it artfully captures the emotion behind your favorite moment with your favorite person.

So how does it work? Paint Your Life offers two primary options: You can turn an existing family photograph into a beautiful painting, or you can create your own portrait using the site’s compilation service, which allows you to combine several photos into one unique portrait. Both are simple, allow for ample customization options and give you full say throughout the entire process — plus, there’s a 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not happy with the finished result.

Even better, you can take 25% OFF any order exclusively with this link (offer automatically applies) through the end of the year. At 25% OFF, it’s hard to pass up this opportunity to create what many believe is the most personalized gift you can give. It’s a gift that truly says “I love you.”

Which option tells your story the best? Find out below:

Option 1: Existing Photograph Portrait

Paint Your Life Option 1 Existing Photograph

Let’s start with the existing photograph option: Simply upload your favorite photo of your family, whether that’s your significant other, parents, children, grandparents, grandchildren, extended family, pets or even that special place that’s home to your fondest memories. Then choose the size and the medium (there’s oil, charcoal, acrylic, color pencil, pastel and black pencil, though oil is the most popular since it’s durable and vibrant). From there, the artist of your choice will create your customized masterpiece using the photo you provided — and if the photo isn’t in the best condition, Paint Your Life can help you bring it back to life despite creases, blurs and smudges.

Option 2: Compilation Portrait

Did your child never get the opportunity to meet their grandparent, or your spouse missed a parent at their wedding? Paint Your Life turns those moments of what-if’s into reality with its compilation portraits. If your dream photo doesn’t exist, Paint Your Life’s compilation service can help you create it by combining individual images, turning your dream portrait into a reality. Start by choosing your theme, medium and artist, then upload separate images of all the involved people and pets, and after a 20% down payment, you’ll receive a digital composition that you can review and approve. After that, the design goes to your artist, who paints your portrait and works with you to offer modifications throughout the process. Once the final painting is finished and approved by you, you choose your frame, pay the remaining balance and get ready to receive your work of art.
