Wondering why you should give art print or an original piece of art instead of perfume, socks or chocolates? The reason is simple: art lasts, it shows that you know the person intimately enough to know what it is they love, be it Jane Austen piece of art or a portrait, a landscape or a custom map. It is always there, on their wall, their kitchen counter, their dresser, constantly reminding them of your friendship, a time you spent together or place you have visited, or your tender relationship.
Another reason: Art is versatile. You need to give a gift to a person who has everything? They love dogs? Give them a piece of dog art. They love to cook? An Alfonse Mucha inspired art print or a painting of a cake/lobster/cooking utensils/large print of a recipe to hang in their kitchen. Gardiner? Botanical prints, garden watercolor or oil painting. A person who has a summer home by the sea? A nautical print. Your friend just had a baby? A lovely pastel colored print for the nursery or a custom piece of art with the baby's name on it.
How about personalized art - a custom watercolor of their child, their home, their favorite book character, their pet. A Star Wars, Dr.Who, Jane Austen fan? The geeky possibilities are endless :)
What other gift can compare to that?
As an artist myself, the nicest reviews I get are from people who give art as a gift to people they love, be it because they love Pride and Prejudice or because I painted a historical home where they work as a volunteer.
