The Daily Portrait Review + {Giveaway} (CLOSED)








Looking for a unique one-of-a-kind gift for a special occasion? From new babies to anniversaries, Milson Road's The Daily Portrait is a wonderful gift for anyone. This is a product that the recipient will treasure and come back to for a long, long time to come.

The Daily Portrait is a custom made framed print that memorializes a special day for the recipient. It is personalized with their name and information that you chose to add, and then it elaborates on the news events of that day. All of this is expertly matted, framed, wrapped, and packaged for you to give away…or keep for your family.

With The Daily Portrait you can chose between their Anniversary, Baby Boy, Baby Girl, Baby Twins, Special Birthday, Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah, Graduation, or Wedding event. They include a "special edition copy block" that has the recipient's name, the giver's name, and the special occasion. It also has the celebration date, a customized lead news story with the details of the event, and the news of the day from national and international sources. Then it comes with a commemorative plate and custom frame & mat combinations. You can chose from several different frame options and matting color choices.

My favorite part of The Daily Portrait is the customization. You get to create the main "news story". It comes out looking like a genuine newspaper page, but it is special for the person you give it to. And they even have gift certificates for you to give at a baby shower or as a wedding gift, so they can customize their own gift after the big day.


I made a wedding Daily Portrait to commemorate our 10th wedding anniversary last month. I wanted to order it in advance, so I could give it to my husband. Otherwise I would have chosen the anniversary one. I like have the wedding edition, because it reminded us about our wedding and what a beautiful day it was. Plus we now have it hanging on our wall with a little wedding photo on it as well.

I love the way it looks hanging on our wall too. It is a large portrait with its 21.25 x 18 inches with the frame and mat. With the ability to customize the frame and matting color, it can match any d├ęcor. I chose to have the matting in a light purple, because that was one of our wedding colors. It's just a great way to remember a special day.



Buy It: You can purchase your own custom Daily Portrait from Milson Road on their website, and they even include free shipping.

Win It: They have graciously given me one customized Daily Portrait to give away to one of my readers (a $165 value). You get to choose the one you want and customize it to suit you.
