The Top 5 Reasons Why Original Art Makes an Impactful Gift

There are MANY reasons why original art is an impactful choice for a gift. We’ve listened to our patron’s comments and compiled these 5 top reasons why you’ll want to consider giving the gift of original art.

  1. It’s original! Sounds silly, but think of nearly every other gift idea: manufactured, duplicated 1,000’s of times online, featured in commercials, and on those mundane ‘here’s what I could use’ gift lists.
  2.  It lasts! Most gifts of art are treasured for a lifetime and may even become heirlooms. They are on display, admired often, and the receiver delights in retelling the story behind the artist or the occasion.
  3. It’s an unexpected treat that can take many forms: pottery, glass, jewelry, reclaimed materials,  textiles, and even the well known art form – canvas for the wall!
  4. It demonstrates support and appreciation for real live people (the artists) and encourages the artists’ growth and ambition.  It also shows support for your local small business.
  5. It makes YOU, the giver, become well-remembered.  The recipient will always appreciate the giver’s time and effort to match the art piece to their personality, making the gift of original art even more precious.

Original art is a long-lasting, eye-catching, conversation-starting gift that will stand out against the superstore’s generic gifts under the Christmas tree. What are you waiting for?


P.S. At Art & Frame on Main, each purchase of art includes a short story about the artist, personalizing the gift with one more step!
