At Art Republic, we want to make this year's festive season stand out, and what better way to make an occasion special than through the joy of gifting art? Whether you're looking for that perfect gift to please your partner, a hard-to-impress teenager or for a much appreciated parent, think art this Christmas!
So, why give the gift of art for Christmas? Art is incredibly personal. This comes down to a combination of individual taste and a sense of connection between the artwork and the space it is hung in. Adding light and bright vibrant colour can be exactly what a dull wall space needs, much like how a minimalist artwork might look best directly above a loud orange chair in the living room.
Picking the right piece can be a tricky task. Fortunately, our Art Gifts Page is a helpful guide to finding the right gift for your loved one. Whether they're movie geeks, fashionistas or nature lovers, we have a carefully curated collection just for them. Avoid scrolling with no idea of what you are looking for and browse our selection of our recommended pieces instead!
Before exploring our Arts Gifts Collections, here are a few of our favourite artworks that we think could be perfect for your loved ones - or are a good place to start your search.
Poolside Gossip - XL by Slim Aarons
Something for the both of you...
Gifting a partner a thoughtful present is no easy feat. Before you make the final decision, take some time to decide whether you like the artwork as well. After all, it's going to end up on your wall too! This photograph by the renowned photographer Slim Aarons is the perfect present for a partner looking for the centre piece of a room. Slim Aarons' large-scale works make for a distinctive accomplice to a new kitchen or a successful revamp of a dining area.
Something for Dad...
What do you get for a dad who has everything? This humourous print by Little Fish Design might just be the perfect solution. Twixie is one of our favourite works, being eye-catching and conceptually provocative, while brimming with charm and a little tongue-in-cheek frivolity. Little Fish Design's pieces are humorous and lighthearted, affordable and delectable, on top of which, these would prove the perfect gift for a cheeky chocolate-lover on Christmas day.
For the picky teenager...
Hard Being Me is one of Marcelina Amelia’s beautiful female-centred limited edition prints. Taking inspiration from her Polish heritage, her works draw on the themes of sexuality, race and the human condition. She is no stranger to the public eye; she embraces subjects that others would shy away from in an innately thought-provoking manner, which we are certain would go down well with a fast-growing and thoughtful teenager.
Kids can appreciate art too!
Art is often viewed as a gift purely adults, but kids appreciate art too! A fun and engaging environment is best for a child's development, and a fun work of art is the first step in creating that stimulating environment. Whether they're a fan of cartoons, or they're younger and you're looking for a calming artwork to place in their nursery, we have the perfect artwork for you. This adorable print by Richard Levine appeals to kids and art lovers alike - just because it's a gift for a child it doesn't mean you can't enjoy it too!
The perfect gift for Mum...
Regardless of their child's age, many mums seem to constantly be on the go, with busy schedules meaning there is rarely any time left to relax and care for themselves. A calming work of art is the ideal gift for someone who's constantly on their feet. A serene landscape piece like Where the Light Shines Through 2 by Emma Reyonlds is a gentle reminder to take a breath and make time for yourself once in a while.
If you still find yourself stumped and nothing is catching your eye, why not opt for one of our gift cards, leaving the decision up to them without losing the sentiment.
