Do you have those people in your life who are difficult to choose gifts for? Give them some art! A piece of artwork is a thoughtful amazing gift for a man or woman, people of almost all ages and even for someone who seems to have everything. It shows thought, effort and it's personal. It's something they might not splurge on for themself. The thought of giving artwork may seem overwhelming at first., but how many times have you seen a picture and thought, “WOW, that would be perfect for him or her.” Or maybe you've seen a photograph and immediately knew the individual who would appreciate it and it would make them smile.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, people are doing more of their shopping online. Art prints are easily obtained online and can be shipped to you for you to wrap and personally deliver, or be drop shipped directly to them if they are far away.
Art is a terrific and thoughtful gift for any occasion. A baby shower, a wedding gift, a thank you, and birthday gift, a gift for a loved one and of course Christmas and Hanukah. And it is an appropriate gift for anyone whether they be family, a loved one, a mentor, a special friend, or a co-worker. It doesn't have to be expensive. A small print framed for a desk or shelf or small place on the wall.
Here are 5 tips for choosing art as a gift:
Think about the gift recipient’s personal taste. Don't buy an abstract for someone that likes nature, farmhouse, or classical prints. Match their colors and decor. Take a look at the house or office and make sure the art you are giving has similar or some of the same colors in it. Think about how their home or office is decorated. Find art that will match or complement what they already have.
Is there a special vacation or place they like? A gift signifying that place shows you care, you listened and preserving memories are important to you.
Make it unique. A print sold in bulk from a department store is not unique. A print sold from a photographer is unique.
What do they like to do in their free time? Hikers like nature prints, beach lovers like beach and ocean prints, wildlife lovers like pictures of wildlife.
Think about their wall space when selecting a size. Don’t buy a 30x40 print if they have small wall areas. Always frame the art, or buy a metal print that is ready to hang. Metal is a modern, sophisticated look and goes with most homes today.
