Gifting art is a unique idea that allows you to present your loved ones with timeless beauty that keeps giving. However, as you likely already know, choosing art for someone else is no easy task. The thing is, art is such a personal thing. In order to gift artwork, whether it’s 21th-century paintings, cityscapes or oil on canvas, you truly have to know someone deep down to understand the art pieces they would enjoy, which leads us right into the first step…

Step One: Think About Who You Are Buying For

The first step to buying art for someone else is to consider the recipient. If you are buying a gift for someone you don’t know on a personal level, such as your boss or coworker, perhaps art isn’t the perfect options.

However, if you are purchasing art for someone close to you, such as your significant other, parents or best friend, oil paintings can be an excellent option. With the perfect art piece, your gift idea can represent the deep understanding and appreciation that you have for your loved ones. 

 

Step Two: Consider Their Living Space

Once you have decided on who you’ll be buying art for, it’s time to let your eyes wander a bit the next time you’re in their home. Spot the empty spaces within their interior and make a mental note of the décor surrounding the area. This will help you find the best art pieces that fit their personal style and current interior, allowing for you to find a practical piece of artwork that is equally stunning.

 

Step Three: Consider the Source

Purchasing artwork from a gallery can be expensive but that doesn’t mean you have to give up the idea altogether. Instead, support local artists by purchasing artwork directly from the artist. This also allows you to gift unique artwork that hasn’t been seen anywhere else which makes the gift idea incredibly sentimental.

 

Step Four: Decide on the Fine Details

The next step to buying art for someone else is to consider the fine details. Does the 21th-century paintings you’re considering come in a frame? If not, how easily can oil on canvas be framed? Perhaps the artwork is so beautiful and elegant that it doesn’t need to be framed.

You’ll also want to consider the practicality of the art piece you’re considering gifting to a loved one. Is it too big and bold that it’ll be difficult for them to add into their home or is it a colorful painting of birds that will pair perfectly with their current interior?

These are the types of questions to ask yourself prior to gifting art.

 

Step Five: Find a Deeper Meaning

The last step to gifting art to someone else is optional. In no way does artwork have to present beauty beyond the surface of the canvas. However, if you’re purchasing art for someone who is fascinated with the strokes of artwork that flow across the canvas and turn into something beautiful, finding a deeper meaning could be a great option.

For example, perhaps your parents grew up on The Upper Westside. Gifting them with an oil painting of the Upper Westside City Blocks attaches more meaning to the piece.

This is a great guide for people looking to buy art. I find Etsy is a good place to look for less expensive art. You can find literally anything you are looking for there. For instance, I found custom cute cards from www.mossroseart.com just the other day.
