Wall Art: A Perfect Gift For All Occasions
Meaningful milestones of your loved ones can be made memorable with the perfect gift. But finding the right gift may seem like a daunting task. If you want to give something unique and not something cliche, try gifting your loved one special wall art.
May it be a birthday, anniversary, wedding, holiday, or housewarming, a stunning handmade painting or a rare limited edition canvas print is a thoughtful gift. Only a few gifts are more memorable than fine art; making it an unexpected, yet excellent and long-lasting gift for people close to you. Although art may have a reputation of being costly, with a bit of research, you can find beautiful wall art that is within your budget.
In this article, we’ll give you some pointers to find the right wall art for your close friends or family that can be made part of their home or office.
The perfect gift
Let’s face it- not all gifts are right for every occasion. When you think about it, art is the only exception to this. A well-chosen art piece is a gift that people will remember fondly forever. But how do you choose the right wall art? Here are a few things to consider-
- Your recipient
When you plan to give art as a gift, always choose according to the recipient's taste rather than yours. Do they have a traditional home full of character or a minimal, modern home that relies on functionality above everything else? Are they fans of classic decors or do they prefer something vibrant and bohemian? If you don’t have an idea as to how their home looks, look for clues from their personality. Do they dress in vibrant colors or prefer subtle, muted tones? How do they generally spend their free time? Try subtly asking them or their partners/children as to what their likes and dislikes are. All this information will help you choose wall art that they are most likely to enjoy and appreciate.
- Have an estimated budget
Wall art is the kind of gift that you give to someone close and special to you. As they don’t come cheap, fix a budget for the gift you give them. If you are sharing the budget with others, you can discuss it with them and have a bigger one, which will help you expand your search. Handmade oil paintings are luxury items that cost a bit but will make for a fantastic gift. However, if it's outside your budget, you can still comfortably buy a smaller canvas print that suits the taste of your recipient. You can also go for custom canvas prints to commemorate a special memory you both share for a more affordable price.
- Give something meaningful
Rather than choosing a beautiful, but random work of art to gift your loved one, look for something that your recipient will be able to connect with. For instance, if they love the outdoors and like to go on hiking trips, why not give beautiful paintings depicting a forest or abstract art in green and brown tones? Or if your friend is a water sign, try gifting a painting or print depicting water, in cool blue tones. If you can symbolize something through the art piece about the occasion or something personal or intimate about the recipient, it will make the gift a lot more precious and meaningful.
When it comes to gifts, it is the thought that counts at the end of the day. So even if you didn’t ‘nail it' by finding the perfect wall art to gift your loved one, a lovely painting is a great option for any occasion. Looking for some inspiration?
