PICTURE PERFECT GIFTS FOR THE HOLIDAYS

 BOSTON, Dec. 1 ~PRNewswire~ -- Eighty-eight percent of all photos are snapped during the holiday season, so what better gift for the holidays than a photo frame to flaunt your favorite memories. Retailers predict that picture frames will be one of this season's most sought- after gifts. Whether giving a photo of a child to a grandparent or a picture of yourself to a loved one, a framed photo is sure to bring years of enjoyment.
 "Look for brands like Burnes of Boston and Terragrafics that provide good design, variety and quality craftsmanship at affordable prices," says Mary Joseph, buyer for Dayton Hudson, one of the nation's leading department stores. "Both boast distinctive looks, and between the two brands, you're sure to find the perfect frames to reflect everyone's tastes."
 Burnes of Boston's Americana-inspired wood frames have grown in popularity due to their warm, natural tones, and a look that fits with today's comfortable lifestyle. For the corporate executive, distinctive rosewood-finished frames from the State Street line make handsome desk accessories, while photos displayed in rustic, scrubbed woods from the America at Home collection are the ideal gift for someone with classic tastes.
 For those who admire progressive "fashion forward" designs, Terragrafics offers an array of distinctive frames in standard and stocking-stuffer sizes. Terragrafics' nature-inspired Stencil Ceramics collection features colorful, hand-sponged floral and fruit motifs, while the Sculpted Ceramics line offers stylized retro designs that are sure to be a cherished gift for newlyweds.
 For the person who has everything, Burnes of Boston's SHOWBOX Photo Viewer is one of this year's most unique and innovative gifts. SHOWBOX looks like a traditional frame, but holds a collection of easily changeable photos in a concealed drawer. By opening and closing the drawer, you can change your framed photo, instantly. SHOWBOX is available in two sizes, 3-1~2 inches by 5 inches and 4 inches by 6 inches, and two colors, soft white and charcoal.
 Burnes of Boston, Terragrafics and SHOWBOX are available at select department, camera and gift stores. Each brand is part of The Holson- Burnes Group, one of the largest designers and distributors of photo frames.
