I don’t think its lame at all. Are you going to record a message for them?

Recording a message would certainly make it nifty and heartfelt!

Unless it’s my parents or inlaws, I feel kind of self-centered giving people pictures of myself.  It seems like I’m saying, "I’m wonderful, here’s my picture, display it in your home."

I give lots of photo gifts (calenders, framed photos, albums, etc) and I get around that fear of seeming self-centered by make sure the pictures include the person who is receiving the gift.

I think it is a neat gift, but perhaps you could make it clear that you don’t expect them to keep your picture in it.  Like maybe say- here’s a filler image until I can get one of us together at the wedding to replace it!

Having a picture of you WITH them in a frame would be a wonderful gift and I think it would seem less narcissistic.  (I think that sounds harsher than I mean it to be, I don’t mean you are narcissistic, just that I would feel that way giving someone else a picture of myself).

I agree with the above. I think it’s a little odd to give people a framed picture of yourself unless they asked for it (or they are your parents/grandparents). Sorry!

If it’s just parents/grandparents/siblings than I think it would be a great idea.
