The art of giving art (and how to avoid the pitfalls)
Our guide helps you cheat. Ask yourself a couple of questions about their home or the holidays they love best and we’ll help you to pick the perfect picture.
Buying art for your friends and family is so tricky that most of us dodge it. But if you get it right, it’s one of the best gifts there is. Choose a picture from the Artist Collection and you pick the size and style you want – it’s really easy.Browse Artist Collection
First, imagine their perfect holiday…
Bustling city break?
Stretching out on white sands?
Off the beaten track?
Packed with exotic creatures?
Now, think about their home
Can you imagine where it might hang? Do they have loads of art up already or a few key pieces? Smaller is safer and gives them more options but if you want real drama and you’re confident in your choice, always go large.
Finally, a Canvas, Poster or Framed Print?
The great thing about a beautiful Framed Print is, it’s complete, you’re not giving them a job in the new year.
Would that classic black frame fit their home perfectly, or would you be safer buying a Poster and letting them frame it themselves?
A Canvas feels arty, it’s got a nice wrappable shape and it’s good to go on the wall straight away.View Gallery
