Finding the perfect gift for someone special can be a real challenge! Of course, you can play safe and buy flowers or a box of chocolates. But let’s face it, these gifts though nice are easily forgotten. Moreover, they are mundane and boring! Why not consider gifting an artwork. Here are five top reasons why art is the perfect choice of gift for loved ones.

Improves Quality of Life:
Wooden Cabin By Tapon Roy
Enjoying and appreciating art can have a powerful effect on the quality of life. It not only improves the ambience but promotes positive emotions. Focusing on art is soothing and helps people unwind.
Victorian Cow By Pragati Sharma Mohanty
Artists convey their feelings and emotional state of mind via colour, texture, lines and shapes in their creations. The passion and sentiments illustrated on canvas may have a strong social or psychological message and has the potential to evoke a powerful response from viewers.
Paintings are Valuable:
Untitled By M F Husain
Fine artwork can prove to be a worthy investment down the line. Original paintings may be a trifle expensive but it is one asset that will increase in value for the recipient. For example, an M F Husain work that could be grabbed for a lakh in the mid-90s now carries a price tag of 50 lakh if not more.
Allegory Of Rice Route By Tushar Waghela
If you have the resources, go for an original work as a gift. However, if your budget is limited, you can look at cheaper options like open edition canvas prints which are equally pleasing to the eye and do not pinch the pocket.
In conclusion art makes for a unique and memorable gift that will be cherished forever by anyone it is gifted to. Just remember to find an artwork that is in sync with recipient’s interest to ensure a long lasting impact.
