How to Buy Wedding Gifts

Artworks make the ultimate wedding gift - a combination of beauty, culture, heritage and investment.

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 Alessi products, Bang & Olufsen televisions, Prada handbags, Hermès ties and Tiffany jewellery.

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 the new couple.

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 / euros, you can purchase beautiful paintings or drawings by emerging artists or excellent limited-edition photographs and graphic prints by well-known master artists. A unique element of art is that you are pretty much assured of a stable investment, with high potential gains.

Know the Person:

It is a good idea to know a little bit about the likes and dislikes of the couple, in terms of how they like the décor or the style of art they might appreciate.

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

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.
