Giving art is one of those original and personal Christmas gift ideas that require a good knowledge of the recipient of the gift. It is not easy to choose a gift that pleases your loved ones. Therefore, this mission is delicate. Nevertheless, with the following tips, you can approach this step serenely.


Knowing the recipient's tastes


Art is above all a matter of taste. Does your father appreciate contemporary art? Does your spouse like pop art? Does your mother like impressionist landscapes? Do you know their favorite artist?

Who are their favorite painters? Art is supposed to evoke emotion and admiration. The answers to these questions will help you find a piece of art they will appreciate.


Define your budget


Art is accessible to all budgets. Even if it is within the reach of everyone, some artists still present works at more than 1000 euros, while others are below 500 euros.


Find a piece of art that matches the interior design


To avoid having your gift gather dust in the attic, consider the interior design of the recipient's home when choosing the artwork. If the recipient lives in a small studio, they may not have enough room to hang a large painting. Also, consider the color when choosing your artwork.


Give a gift that you appreciate


When buying, ask yourself: will you hang this picture in your home? Will it have a place above your bed? In order to find the right piece, put yourself in the shoes of its recipient. If one painting doesn't inspire you, move on to another.

 This doesn't mean that you have to like the piece first. Each person's taste is different. Therefore, you should also consider the recipient's taste.


Custom the gift


Don't forget the frame after the purchase, as this detail can make a difference. The wooden model is the ideal choice, since it goes with everything. However, you can also choose a metal and colored frame. Note that you can ask the seller to frame the work and even wrap it for Christmas.
