How to Gift Art

Across different cultures you’ll see many forms of gift giving as well as a variety of occasions marked by an exchange of anything from small tokens to large presents. Western practice has it that gift giving is one of the easiest ways to express love and gratitude.

 

There are a ton of great gift ideas circulating out there, but right here, we have one thing on our minds: art! So next time you come up against any one of these occasions, think about how a stunning piece of art is not only a meaningful gift to unwrap in the moment, but is the gift that keeps giving as it adorns the walls and spreads its beauty year-round.

Here are 5 plug-and-play ideas for your back pocket next time you need a quick gift:
This reminds me of you.

Every holiday, anniversary or monumental milestone is marked with a gift and finding something different every year (sometimes 3 or 4 times a year) can get really difficult. The best starting point for the gift process is thinking about something special about the person: an interest, hobby, favourite movie or food, or funny memory together, then go through Artsake’s collection and grab the art piece that says it all. Car fan? Got it. Tennis lover? Done. Style icon? Yup, got that too.

Artsake Gift Card

Keep up the good work!

Whether it’s a gift exchange at work, you need something to gift that your whole team would like, or a client gift, think about how simple it is to grab an Artsake Gift Card and hand over a box that says both taste, culture and thoughtfulness. If you know the recipient well, you could pre-select some choices and include them in the box or better yet, go bold and choose their piece for them! But when in doubt, go for the gift card.

Welcome Home

Most people who throw housewarmings do so for the gifts. Yes, they want to show off their new digs, but they also need to fill their
liquor cabinets, coffee tables, and bathroom counters. That’s why we toast with champagne, stunning coffee table books, and vanilla scented candles! Next time you cross over a new threshold, imagine carrying a ribbon-tied canvas piece that says, “let’s pop the bubbly!” You’ll be the best gift of the night, hands down!

Paying it forward

When charitable occasions come along, we often think to donate cash amounts. As business owners, we might sponsor a part of the event or donate product for gift bags. Another option we want to throw out there is rolling that donation over into an art piece or Artsake gift card that can be put into a raffle or auction (check out what we do with the Artsake Foundation). When it comes to art, you stand to increase your donation with rising bids, which means more money for the charity. Everyone leaves happy!

Baby shower!

A new baby means another room to decorate. You could help relieve new parents of another task that may remain unfinished (for years!) by gifting art for the baby room. Something cute and sweet like colorful polka dots or gummy bears to say welcome to the world!

 

The thing about art is that it’s anything but another boring gift and even if it’s offered in a gift card, the endless possibilities of beautifully crafted, high-quality art is enough to make everyone ooh and ahh at the originality and thoughtfulness.
