Have a conscious Christmas and give your loved ones a present for the future. The Christmas season often encourages everything in excess - more shopping, more food, more drinking and more presents. Gift-giving is a genuine love language used to express appreciation, but mindless spending can detract from this sentiment and create unnecessary waste and make Christmas overwhelming for many people.
With an increasing awareness of environmental issues and our impact we have made on the planet with our waste, more people are rejecting a throwaway mindset and making more considered purchases that have more longevity. At artrepublic we fully support this idea and encourage you to buy for life!
Art lasts a lifetime The purchase of art is environmentally friendly, energy efficient and easy to maintain. It is not something that needs to be regular serviced like your car or your home, so the initial investment has no extra upcoming costs to consider. It is not another commodity that outlives it usefulness with an expiring shelf life. In fact, art gets better with time, often increasing in value it is a more worthwhile investment than buying an abundance of plastic items which you will soon lose their charm and end up in landfill.
Art is affordable The purchase of art is not only a unique and special gift, but a way to support talented creatives in a tangible way. We have hundreds of prints available under £100.
Art is an investment Seen something you like? Don’t be afraid to ask your loved ones for what you really want in order to avoid receiving unwanted gifts that you won’t use. You may feel selfish or ungrateful asking for something specific, but your loved ones are likely to appreciate help buying a gift you will enjoy and get use from.
