5 Tips On Gifting Art

Looking for a gift that is sure to be very well received and likely cherished for years to come?

Whether it's a special occasion or just because, giving the gift of art is a thoughtful way to create lasting memories.

From navigating budgets to finding the perfect piece that resonates, here are five essential tips to help you choose art that will be cherished for years to come.



With any purchase, budget will ultimately help you decide what kind of art purchase you’ll be making.

Always feel comfortable being upfront with a gallery or individual artist about what your budget is so that they can make easier recommendations.


What do you know about who you're shopping for? Do they love travel? Camping? Is there somewhere specific that holds special meaning to them?

If possible, finding a piece of art with personal meaning is always a safe way to guarantee that their new art will be loved forever more.


Does the your potential gift recipient have a home full of bare walls or are they already collectors?

If you’re unsure, it’s always a safe bet to go with a medium size or smaller piece to be sure they’ll have space for your art gift in their home. If you know their space is missing larger pieces and have the budget to splurge, then a larger piece could be a possibility too. 


Does the gallery or artist you’re making a purchase with offer returns? Feel confident with your gift giving and be sure to request a gift receipt as a just in case.

Gift Certificates:

Overwhelmed by choice and just don’t know what kind of art to pick? Gift certificates are a great option for art gift giving.
