Why is original art such a great gift?

Does it always have to be for someone else or can you gift yourself?

Of course you can… are you worth it? Yes of course you are. Buying or commissioning a piece of art for yourself or someone makes a great gift for several reasons. You may have some original art already , or you may be just thinking about it and wondering if it is something you can afford. Read on to know more about why original art is so good and how to buy or commission your own .

  • Emotional Connection: Art often evokes strong emotions and feelings. A piece of art that resonates with the person receiving it, shows that you've put thought and effort into choosing something that aligns with their tastes and preferences. This emotional connection can make the gift really meaningful.

  • Long-lasting: Unlike many other gifts that may lose their appeal or functionality over time, art can be enjoyed for years, even generations. It becomes a lasting reminder of the occasion it was gifted, the person who gave it, the memory of an occasion or in animal and wildlife art a much loved animal in their life.

  • Unique and Personal: Art is a unique and personal gift. It suggests that you see the recipient deserving of something special.

  • Conversation Starter: Art often sparks conversations. When the recipient displays the artwork in their home or office, it can become a conversation starter with visitors, allowing them to share the story behind the gift.

  • Support for Artists: Buying art supports artists and the arts community. It can be a meaningful way to contribute to the creative world and help artists pursue their passions.

  • Memorable: A well-chosen piece of art is likely to be remembered for years to come. It's a gift that stands out from the typical presents one might receive.

  • Versatile: Art can fit various occasions and relationships. Whether it's for a birthday, anniversary, wedding, housewarming, or any other special event, art can be a versatile and thoughtful choice.

Consider the recipient's tastes and preferences when selecting art as a gift, as art is highly subjective, but that time will ensure that your gift is well-received and very much appreciated. Just think how much it will mean to them.

I have limited commission slots available before December as well as some for my Autumn offer. When they are gone they are gone!

Do get in touch if you would like to discuss the perfect gift. My Autumn offer (Pet portrait and greetings cards) is a great way for those on a tighter budget and still offers a unique piece of art.
