Christmas is quickly approaching and you haven't completed your Christmas shopping or even started for that fact.
You're freaking out - the mall crowds, everything will be out of stock and you have no clue what to get anyone on your list.
We all love to tell ourselves that we are going to get our shopping done early in a stress free manner, but let's face it... most of us are procrastinators. That leaves you with making a classic dad move: picking up a good old gift card.
I am here to say DON'T DO IT! I have your answer!
The Perfect Gift: ARTWORK
Artwork can be a great gift for any occasion, whether it is for Christmas, a birthday, baby shower, a thank you gift, etc.
Buying artwork for someone else can be quite daunting and intimidating, but I am here to tell you it does not have to be. When they receive this gift it will without a doubt make them feel very appreciated and special.
Now you do not need to get them a gigantic piece to go in their foyer or above their couch. A small artwork that won't take up much room on their wall is the safe way to go, that way you are not risking them not having the wall space to hang it up.
So let's get into the reasons why artwork makes the perfect gift!
3. It is an asset that could make them rich one day
If you give someone a pair of socks, they wear them over and over again and eventually have to throw them away. They deplete in value, like most gifts you would choose to give.
Artwork is a gift that will only appreciate in value. You are providing an asset for that person to potentially sell in the future. Who knows, maybe that emerging artist you bought an original artwork from becomes famous and that artwork is worth millions!
If you are on a tight budget you can always purchase a print of the artwork you had in mind, which you can usually find for $100 or less.
