This is a tried and tested way of gifting art.

And perhaps the ones that create a memory closest to my heart.

I remember the details of the night quite vividly with emotions running high and lots of tears.

I got my husband a handmade panting made from his favorite photo from our wedding and a photo of his parents compiled to it.

He lost his parents young, and he desperately wished for them to be there with us at our wedding.

Before I gave him the painting, I played a few videos from our wedding, we reminisced about that beautiful day.

And with longing in his eyes, he said that his parents would have loved to be there.

And that is when I showed him the painting, all of us standing together at our wedding.

The painting was everything and more we imagined.  

So, what I’m trying to say here is that setting the mood for the gift is important.

It can be a simple video of the giftee’s friends and family wishing him or it could be something related to the painting.

It is another one of those ways to gift a painting that will not require much work.

All you need to do is put your painting in a different box, possibly in a box that seems completely unrelated and not relevant to the giftee. 

It could be a box of waffle makers or anything random that fits in the box painting.

This simple but unique way of gifting painting will definitely win over anyone and make it a memory to remember.

5. The discovery

This way of gifting a painting will require some research and organization, you will need to find a place that they go for sure but not often, it could be the walls of a certain hallway or their bookshelf.

Someplace that can conceal the painting in plain sight and can only be noticed when looked at with care.

This way the gift will truly surprise them as they will be discovering it in the least expected manner and place.

It should be a place they go to every day to perform their mundane activity.

It could be hidden in their dressing table drawer or their closet. It will completely catch them off guard and evoke intense emotions of gratitude and love.

And here are couple more tips to make sure you really gift them an experience along with the gifts.
