Giving the Gift of Art – 12 Great Gift Ideas to Hang on the Wall
Do you enjoy finding new and unique things to give as gifts every holiday season, or do you tend towards the dreaded gift cards each year when you run out of ideas?
It happens to the best of us. We all know someone who is just impossible to shop for, and we feel like it’s better to just give them the money and let them decide on their own.
This holiday season, why not try something completely different? Why not give them something that they’ll be excited to unwrap and see for the first time?
Beautiful wall art makes a beautiful gift, and you can easily find something for any tastes and styles.
But where do you start? What kind of framed wall art is the best choice for your friends and family?
Let’s look at a couple categories and determine which is right for this year’s holiday gifts.
Inspirational Quotes Wall Art
Life in general – and the holiday season in particular – is often filled with anxiety and stress and constant distractions from the things that should be most important to us.
Sometimes, all it takes is a little reminder that there are a lot of great things around us every day, and we just need to step back for a moment and appreciate that fact.
These inspirational quotes are a great gift idea for friends and family, whether they need a little pick-me-up or they just enjoy looking at life in a positive light.
Which quotes make the best gifts? Well, obviously that’s a pretty subjective question, but we can recommend starting with some of these:
1. Past Present Future, 2. Your Smile, 3. Bless The Food Before Us, 4. Today Is a New Day, 5. Today is A Brand-New Day, 6. Living Life
Premium Wall Art
Whether you’re shopping for someone who enjoys abstract art, landscapes, flowers, or modern/contemporary styles, some premium wall art can be a great gift.
These pictures go great in most rooms of the house, and if you’re careful about it, you should be able to find something that matches the recipient’s current style.
Art aficionados will really appreciate the level of quality in the print and the artistic expression in the image. When they open this gift and see how well it fits in their home, they’ll know you really took the time to find a gift that is very personal.
Take a look at these options to get started:
1. Adele Bloch-Bauer, 2. The Kiss, 3. Formo II, 4. Flowering Succulent, 5. Birch Trees, 6. Subtle Mist
How to Choose Quality Wall Art
There are certain qualities and characteristics that you should look for when you’re buying premium wall art or inspirational quotes. This is a gift, after all, and we want to make sure that the recipient appreciates your efforts and can display the picture for years to come.
Traditional wall art should be hand assembled, use acid-free mat, and be Giclée printed on archival paper. Make sure that it is ready to hang (you don’t want them to have to go out and find their own hanging accessories or it may never make it to the wall), and that any wooden frames are of the highest quality and the prints are stretched by experts.
Getting Your Art in Time for the Holidays
Shipping is a tricky thing in this day and age for everyone, but at Homekor we still offer free 2-day shipping on all orders.
Still, that doesn’t mean you should wait until the very last minute to get your order in. Best to play it safe and make sure these great gifts are on a truck and heading your way as soon as possible.
And, just to be sure, remember that we do have a 30-day money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with your purchase. (It may usually be considered bad etiquette to return a gift, but we really do want everyone to love the art they hang on their walls.)
We hope that you've found your ideal piece of art, or at least some inspiration for gifts this holiday season through this article. But, if you haven't yet, feel free to read more from us in this article on Redfin about great gifts, particularly for new home owners.
