Pop a 5x7” print inside before putting it on display.
The best bit? Interior brand Global Explorer donates 15% of its profit to Women for Women International, so you’re supporting the charity when you buy this frame.
Luxe Marble Photo Frame
Marble accessories never seem to go out of fashion, so investing in a photo frame like this should bring timeless style into your home. As a natural product, each frame contains the unique, subtle markings found in the stone.

Magnetic Poster Frame
For larger prints or posters, why not ditch the traditional frame and go for something a little more unusual?
This magnetic option works by gripping the paper between two wooden rods at each end. As there’s no pinning or sticking involved, you can easily swap out your pictures when you fancy a change; it’s a quick and easy way to display your favourite images.
There’s plenty of room for customisation here, as you can choose between white, black or teak wood and select your size, from 21cm up to 101cm.
