With the holidays nearing, you may have already begun planning for gifts to give your friends or loved ones. This can be quite tricky, especially if the person you’re gift-shopping for is an art enthusiast capable of making the things they want. However, there are a number of creative gifts that are sure to delight them, whether it’s a unique piece of décor they can display at home or supplies they can use to further enhance their skills.
If you’re stumped for ideas, you may want to consider getting one of the following items for your art-loving friend or family member.
Canvas prints with photos of you and your loved one can make for good personal gifts, especially for people who have photos or canvas paintings displayed around their home. If you’re planning to gift it to someone who loves photography, you could give them a canvas print of one of their favorite shots. Since these prints allow for customization, you can easily get the recipient a print that showcases their personality or that symbolizes something significant in their life. It’s a unique gift idea, and your friend may be surprised by your thoughtfulness.
Canvas prints can be used as prominent pieces of décor in a home. If your loved one’s home has a more sophisticated feel, perhaps framed canvas prints would suit them better, provided that you choose a tasteful frame that matches the rest of their décor. These would make for good wall décor in the bedroom, living room, kitchen, or bathroom, and the recipient can be reminded of you every time they walk past it.
Canvas prints can be made with premium quality ink, so if you purchase from the right shop, you can expect them to last a very long time. They’re slightly more expensive than regular paper prints, but for their durability and how unique they are compared to paper prints, it’s a reasonable price to pay.
Creative And Artsy Pillow Covers
Pillow covers aren’t a common gift idea, and if you’re able to find some with creative or art-inspired designs, your choice of gift could be seen as doubly unique. There are psychological benefits that come with having art in your home, so, when choosing a pillow cover to gift someone with, consider what kind of art they’re interested in. Of course, it’s important to choose one with a fabric or material that works well with their home, but equal consideration should be given to the design.
You can check the nearby stores in your location for options to choose from, but you might also want to search online to broaden your range of choice. You could choose pillow covers with patterns or prints that remind you of your friend’s personality or art style. Alternatively, if their home seems to have an art-themed look, you could search for designs that are inspired by famous artists or that mimic the strokes and textures of different art mediums. This would be a particularly good choice for friends looking to elevate the look of their home.
If your loved one has recently expressed interest in a certain medium of art, you can gift them with a course on that medium. Though art courses are often conducted in physical workshops, you can find online courses that are just as effective. There’s a wide range of prices, and these may depend on how extensive the course is and on what platform or institution it’s being hosted by. Choose one that fits your budget but that also promises to deliver good-quality lessons.
If your loved one hasn’t mentioned anything new they’d like to learn, you can still find something that could work for them. Perhaps it could be a course that can help them improve on their art style, or perhaps you can secure a slot for a workshop held by an artist they admire. Anything that can help them elevate their skills will surely be appreciated.
Calligraphy has risen in popularity in recent years, and considering how writing by hand has been proven to be good for your brain, it’s no wonder that many people find it to be a calming hobby to have. With that said, perhaps a calligraphy set would be a good gift for the art enthusiast in your life. If they already dabble in the activity, they’re sure to appreciate it. And, if they’ve never tried it before, then you’ve provided them with another avenue in which they can exercise their creativity.
The gift ideas mentioned above are great for creatives and art enthusiasts. However, you should remember to take note of their individual interests or art styles. Giving them something related to art is a good idea, but giving them an art-related gift that’s tailored to their specific interests is better.
