Art makes an ideal gift
(or would you like to receive it? You can share this page and drop a hint!)
Gifting art shows that you have thought about the recipients tastes and preferences, taken time to think about their home and style. In short it says that you know what excites, interests and moves them. It's also something very nice to un wrap on the day.
Here are some options and suggestions that will make giving the gift of art easier.
GIVE AN ORIGINAL PAINTING
Art can be a fabulous and long lasting gift to receive and to treasure, but sometimes tricky to choose for someone else.
If you would like to give an original painting, but are unsure about choosing the right one, I have a solution.
Give the gift of an original painting or commissioned art work, and leave the choice of painting in the hands of the person receiving it.
How it works: Buy this gift and I will create a beautiful hand made mini painting/ gift certificate for you, so the recipient has something to unwrap on the day. The price of the voucher is £200 - the price that original art from me starts at. It can also be used as a deposit for larger pieces of art or a commissioned painting. These hand painted gift vouchers/mini paintings can be exchanged by phone, online or in my gallery in person.
This voucher will be created personally for you and sent, beautifully wrapped by Royal Mail.
Ideal for a couple who may be choosing together at a later time.
Ideal if you'd like to gift original art.
Ideal if you'd like to gift a commissioned painting.
HERE ARE MY QUICK TIPS TO GIVING ART AS A GIFT:
Ways to pay - PayPal credit
Did you know that I work with PayPal to offer interest free credit on any purchase over £99? the cost of a painting can be spread over 4 months with 0% interest. For details click the pop up on my Editions or Originals pages.
No worries about choosing the right painting
Art is very personal. To take to worry about whether you have chosen the right piece I offer a 30-day unconditional exchange or refund policy with all paintings, so you can buy with confidence.
For Christmas gifts, this extends to the end of January 2021.
Do they have a favorite place or colour scheme?
This may be clear from the pieces they have in their home, but if not, then turn detective. Subtly ask them some questions, or ask their partner or children.
Where are they going to hang it?
Buying art as a gift is great, however, for it to be really appreciated, it's going to have to hang or be displayed. So it's worth thinking about the recipent's walls. This will help you choose a piece that will not only fit with their décor but also the space they have to work with.
Art for someone who is far away?
No problem we can wrap and post nationally and internationally. If you select art from my website, you can have the artwork shipped directly to your friend or family member. If you’re unsure of someone’s design preferences, you can always send the art unframed and send them a gift card so they can make their own choice.
Gift vouchers can be immediately downloaded or sent as a beautiful card, details here.
Still stuck? Here's an idea....
If you can’t find that perfect gift of art, but still want to give art as your gift, consider a gift card.
As part of your present, you could offer to make a date with the recipient to shop together and possibly take time for lunch as well.
Buying art as a gift is incredibly fulfilling and expresses to the recipient that you have put genuine thought and care into picking something they will like.
Art could be your best gift idea yet!
