It’s the first day of December and the countdown to Christmas has begun. Galleries opened their doors to affordable artworks that people can buy as Christmas presents and Christmas markets with art & crafts, festive food and Christmas decorations welcome their visitors all around the country. Whether you finished your Christmas shopping or you just started, you still have time to acquire original artworks as presents for family and friends.

At Art2Arts we have a selection of original paintings, photography and digital art to suit all tastes and interiors. There is also an Own Art scheme available so you can purchase any artwork in ten equal interest-free instalments. Offering art as a present shows originality and thoughtfulness. An artwork lasts a lifetime so the recipient will enjoy it for years to come. An original artwork will bring any interior to life while adding personality to it.

This is just one of the numerous flower paintings that you can acquire at Art2Arts online gallery. Floral art is popular with collectors and occasional buyers and can make a perfect gift for yourself or for your loved ones. A floral painting will look great as a centre piece in the living room, but also anywhere in the house to brighten up a bedroom, a hallway or a dining room. Paintings with roses will complement a shabby chic interior; still life paintings will look great in a traditional home while semi abstract or expressionist ones will complement a modern, contemporary home with their striking colours and textures.

Seascapes, cityscapes, traditional oil landscapes or sunsets paintings will make a great gift to anyone, especially if the image captures the recipient’s favourite place. A landscape painting will remind us of a childhood place, our honeymoon, a memorable holiday or just a beautiful place that we dream to escape one day. Landscape paintings are suitable for any interior, from traditional or rustic to modern and New England.

Yes, this is the artwork’s title and the picture matches it humoristically. Humorous art is great to give as a gift as it shows how well you know the recipient. Such paintings can be placed anywhere in the house as any other artwork and it will always put a smile of people’s face: owners, visitors, family and friends.

Figurative art is another gift suggestion as you can offer such a painting to anyone: from family and friends to parents and partners. You can commission a portrait of the recipient, you can buy a celebrity portrait or you can buy nudes or paintings of lovers for your partner as a piece that will represent your relationship.

Abstract art looks great in a modern, contemporary and minimalist home as well as in a shabby chic or New England style interior. An abstract painting captures the artist’s vision of the world so the viewer can have their own interpretation.
