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 Art Republic we fully support this idea and encourage you to buy for life.
There is something very special about receiving a work of art from a loved one. Many see the artwork hanging in their home as an extension of themselves and a way to reflect an element of their personality or an experience they have had. Choosing a piece of art for someone which captures your relationship with them or memories you have shared is a meaningful gift that will last a lifetime and continue to bring them joy every day.
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.
