How to buy art as a gift?

Artworks make the ultimate personalized personal or business presents.

The pleasure from receiving an original art (whether a one-of-a-kind painting or a limited edition graphic print or photograph) goes way beyond the cliché of Prada handbags, Gucci shoes, Hermès ties and Tiffany jewellery or gifts.

When you give an art to someone you will be stepping aside from the formula of luxury gift giving and probably giving the most memorable gift. Even a small artwork is something to be cherished for a life time by someone who may seem to have everything.

Here are some things to consider before giving an artwork as a present:


Plan how much you are willing to spend on each present. Remember, original artworks can cost from $100 to many millions of dollars. However, even if your budget is as low as a couple of hundred dollars, you can purchase beautiful paintings or drawings by emerging artists or excellent limited-edition photographs and graphic prints.

Know the Person:

It is a good idea to know a little bit about the likes and dislikes of the person, in terms of how he or she likes his décor or the style of art he or she might appreciate.

Alternatively, options such as Abstract Art and Landscapes make for excellent choices.

If you are purchasing art as a corporate gift, please remember that you can also commission some of our artists to create customized for you and even incorporating your logo in the actual artwork. Otherwise, we would recommend you to keep the art simple and likeable, such as the Abstracts and Landscapes.

Return or Exchange:

Further, if you are purchasing an artwork at, you are aware that all artworks come with a money-back guarantee and also allow the recipient to exchange the artwork, easily.

This is an excellent way to ensure that the person receiving it will be able to exchange the piece, if he or she desires.

Gift Certificates:
