Giving the perfect gift to someone has always been kind of a pain for most of us people.

How do you give someone something that’s personal and intimate enough to be heartwarming and also be relatively light on your wallet?

Well, this new old-fashioned trend of gifting paintings is rising again in recent times.

However, what’s even better than a painting to gift someone?

A personalized custom-made painting tailoring to your needs and choices.

Let’s look at some of the occasions where a personalized handmade portrait would be the perfect gift for your loved ones:  

1. Birthday Gift:

In the modern cosmopolitan world with the ever-increasing connections, we may, at times, fall short of what to gift to the person whose birthday it is.

Gifting a handmade portrait can really save you a lot of trouble in such cases.

Just select a good memory you share with that person and get it translated into colors and paint on the canvas in the form of a portrait.

Mother’s Day gifts have always been something that we have faced problems with while selecting, that’s mainly because on such occasions we look to repay her with the unconditional love that she showered upon us since the very moment we were born.

But, there isn’t anything that can possibly help us do that, what we can do instead is tell her how much we care for her and gifting her a custom-made portrait is just what you need.

Your love for them artistically outlined over a canvas with a plethora of colors spilled.

Sounds like the perfect kind of gift to me.
