Here we round up our top ten favourite sites for photograph frames this Christmas.

Here at The Good Web Guide, we think hard about shopping – especially in the long run-up to Christmas. We know as well as anyone how difficult and interminable your Christmas shopping list can seem.

But there is a mantra worth bearing in mind at all times: nobody ever minds being given a scented candle (provided that it’s a fairly posh one) – or a photo frame.

The explosion of digital photography has arguably intensified our desire to print and frame our shots for posterity. Hence the fact that most worthwhile lifestyle stores sell a variety of glorious frames covering several price points.

Here, we round up ten of our favourite sites for photograph frames.

Nkuku
www.nkuku.com


The website of this Devon-based lifestyle shop and café is a treasure trove of furniture, lighting and homewares. You’ll find a frame for every need here. But our pick of the crop is the Gigantic Antique Glass Kiko Frame – only your very best shot deserves a berth in this one.

India Jane
www.indiajane.co.uk


The frames on offer here are – like the shop and website – sumptuous, old-school and wonderfully indulgent. Any one of them will add charm and elegance to a table-top in your sitting room or bedroom. They should show your photos off nicely, too.

Lund London
www.lundlondon.com


Lund London is all about fresh, clever designs and exquisite quality. Stylish? Yes. Traditional? Not so much. From watches and jewellery boxes to desk tidies and other homewares, it’s all pretty cool. We particularly love the neon acrylic frames, for their funky pop of colour.

MoA Design
www.moadesign.co.uk


The mission at MoA Design is to recycle, reduce UK waste and preserve our heritage timber. Their range of eco-friendly wooden photo frames does just that. And they look super classy as well. We like the Reclaimed Wooden Multi-Aperture Four Photo Frame.

The White Company
www.thewhitecompany.com


It may be 22 years since The White Company started selling us stylish things for our home – but they are arbiters of great taste to this day. Their photo frames are the epitome of understated elegance – in white and silver. With its slightly retro vibe, we think the 52 Aperture Year In Memories Photo Frame is a brilliant idea.

Sia Deco (online boutique returning 11 Nov)
www.sia-deco.com


It makes sense that a global leader in the decorative flower market should do other lifestyle elements beautifully. Their black faux leather frame is a stunner. We reckon it would get the approval of the man in your life, too.

All Things Brighton Beautiful
www.allthingsbrightonbeautiful.co.uk


As you’d expect from this quirky website featuring items from the best of Brighton’s creative scene, the frames at All Things Brighton Beautiful are stylish, inventive and unusual. We love the Antique Zinc Standing Frame.

Cox & Cox
www.coxandcox.co.uk


Always inspirational, Cox & Cox was set up in 2001 to provide shoppers with lovely homewares that they couldn’t find in traditional catalogues. Its been winning us over ever since. With its Scandinavian simplicity, we think the Black Hanging Frame is seriously smart.

OKA
www.oka.com


OKA's frames are stylish and grown-up but totally accessible. You can rely on them to bring polish to whatever situation you put them in. Our favourite is the large Faux Shagreen Frame in Pale Celadon, which packs a proper punch.

MADE
www.made.com


MADE’s collection of frames is typically streamlined and slick. Its range of colours and mounts suits posters and prints as well as photographs. With their lightweight design and synthetic glass, these frames feel cool and contemporary.
