A coworker of mine went to a shower where someone gave a gift that was a framed picture, and the picture was of the couple’s last names on street signs that were intersecting, (ie: Porter Street and Smith Avenue). It was obviously made to look that way and not just a crazy coincidence. I want to know where I can get one, because I am looking for unique and sweet gift ideas for my close friends getting married. Has anyone heard of this? I have been trying to google it different ways but am not coming up with anything. I don’t know if the way I described it even makes sense.
Or – does anyone have any other ideas? Three of my best friends are getting married soon, and I am trying to think of a really nice and thoughtful gift thats not just something off their registry. What do you give when your best friend is getting married?

I hope someone has this information because this sounds great.

Sorry I can’t help with the street sign gift, but it sounds really nice. I hate buying off the registry for my close friends. Two things I have done recently are (1) A dwarf lemon tree… in the card I wrote something about the tree growing as their lives together grew and (2) 2 bottles of wine. One bottle was tagged with instructions to drink on their first anniversary and the other was tagged to drink on their 5th anniversary. We also included a nice decanter.

Have you looked on Etsy? I know I’ve seen street signs personalized before but I can’t remember where, but I would definitely check out Etsy.

you could try etsy alchemy where someone would definitely have sufficient photoshop skills to make a picture like that for you. i suggest you collect pictures of street signs that you like.

I had something similar made especially for me on etsy. Use Alchemy to request exactly what you want. I had tons of bids for it.

Another popular idea is a framed print that spells out their new last name, but the letters are found objects.
Like that, but people on etsy can do that. I think it’s very unique.
The last names on a street sign could be done by taking a photo of a street sign and using photoshop to change the names. It wouldn’t take very long to do.
