We all have a friend or family member (or two, or more) who really loves art. And when it comes to choosing a gift for them, you’ll naturally find yourself looking for something extra special to appeal to their creative nature.
It goes without saying that art lovers are drawn to things of beauty. With a real eye for detail, they simply adore colour, style and statement pieces. So, when looking for the perfect gift, bear this in mind and go for something with an added touch of va va voom. For inspiration, here are some unique gift ideas for the art lover in your life.
For the home
Creative people naturally inject this passion into their homes. Think beautiful and eye-catching art adorning every wall, and effortless style around every corner.
So, if you want to really strike a chord with someone, go straight to their heart with an art-inspired gift for the home. Ranging from cushions for the living room, or an apron or tea-towel for the kitchen; you can get pieces that showcase individual and charming designs from artists.
Choose between intricate prints of paintings, or vibrant and funky patterns, like this retro daisy floral cushion in matte velvet fabric from the Whistlefish range:
As an added bonus, these things are all super practical, so they can enjoy art while doing the daily chores!
Everybody loves stationery. You can never have too much of the stuff, so, if you want to get a gift for an art lover that is guaranteed to serve a purpose, this is it.
Owning a notebook with an artist’s picture decorated on the front cover, will inspire someone to pop it out at every opportunity and get jotting. Similarly, an art-inspired address book is the perfect place to store all those important contacts.
Alternatively, give someone the materials to be able to send little pockets of art to their own friends and family, with an assortment of 15 beautiful floral notelets stored in this meadow flowers tin:
Carry art with you
I think we can all agree, art lovers are at their happiest when admiring a fabulous drawing, striking painting or, simply, a lovely sketch. The very idea of artistic flair brings a smile to their faces. Therefore, a gift which allows them to carry art around is going to be a winner.
Stylish art tote bags are totally different to the plain bags you usually see. These can be used to jazz-up shopping trips, carry books to the beach, or replace a handbag on the daily walk to work. Whatever the activity, this is a gift that can be enjoyed each and every day.
