Essential Holiday Tips for Gifting Art
Tis’ the season for giving and what a great way to show your love by giving the gift of Art!
These 5 essential tips will help you narrow down your selection. Since Art is a very personal and unique gift following these suggestions will make your gift-giving a success this holiday season.
Think of the recipient’s personality, style and taste should be considered when deciding on the right piece. Do they like bold colours, subdued hues, abstract or figurative work, photography or painting. Also consider their favourite colours, textures, shapes and design styles and any unique subject matter that speaks to them. Finally, how much room does the receiver have, would a large statement piece work for them or is it best to gift a small intimate work of art.
Contrary to popular belief, art does not need to be expensive! Choosing an original work of art, which tends to be a high ticket price, doesn’t have to be the first choice. Fine art prints are a wonderful option and are available in various sizes with a price range to fit every budget.
Take a moment to think of the art in the recipient’s space. Consider the environment – what style of work would suit their space, is it contemporary or traditional, colourful or subdued
The work of art should harmonize with the room it is settled in. Consider the colour and design styles such as bohemian, urban, shabby chic or zen. Break the rules with a large art piece that can be the centre of the space or offer a small and intimate piece of art.
When buying fine art prints, it is best to gift them already framed. Opt in for a personal touch by discussing unique framing styles with your local framer. This personalization will enhance the gift and make it more impactful.
When in doubt, a gift card can be the best solution when thinking of gifting art. Since art is a very personal choice, allowing the recipient to choose their own piece is a wonderful option. Create an experience for the receiver by choosing to visit local galleries together, prior to using the gift card, for inspiration.
Wishing you and yours a very Happy Holiday Season
