Finding the perfect present for everyone on your list is probably at the top of your mind right now—maybe even a source of stress. And if you’re wondering what kind of gift to buy for the person who “has it all,” you’re not alone!

That’s why the recommends a gift of art as a unique gift that is memorable and increases in value each year; the quintessential gift that keeps on giving.

    Choose artwork that will speak to them. Remember, it’s not for you; it’s their gift FROM you.

  2. Think about their hobbies and passions: Their interests provide the perfect clues. Do they love outdoor sports, maybe landscapes will be right. Maybe they love travel and would enjoy abstract cityscapes.
  3. Visualize the space: Picture their home, consider their style, the colours and themes throughout their space. Do they have a traditional decor or more of a contemporary look? Do they display art? If so, consider what they showcase on their walls.
  4. Visit an online gallery: Visit the website to see which artworks will work in their space. Make purchase and delivery arrangements with the gallery.
  5. Originality counts: Remember, original art makes a very special and potentially valuable gift for everyone.
