Your best friend’s birthday is coming up and you want to get her something really special, but can’t seem to think of anything.

Of course gift hunting is really difficult as nothing seems perfect enough for your special one. There is one gift though that may seem unusual to present as a gift, but involves a lot of thought and effort: a painting.

You may wonder if a painting is appropriate enough or would it seem weird or silly. Actually a painting is the perfect gift as it will last with your loved one forever and will hold some meaning to it. If you are still unsure of the reasons why you should gift a painting, here is why you shouldn’t be: a. You will need to spend a considerable amount of time selecting a painting and this itself will make your loved one feel special. b. Store bought gifts will eventually wear out their lifespan and will be soon forgotten. It has no value once used, but a painting will never amount to trash even after decades. c. A painting requires very little maintenance and lasts for a long time. It also serves as a constant reminder of the special bond the two of you share.

They may include:

1. Personality The personality of the person to whom you wish to gift a painting to will be the main thing you need to consider here. You also need to think of her views on art. If she loves art, then you could search for a painting by her favorite artist. If she isn’t an art fanatic, then you can get her something special by even a local artist.

2. Meaningful The main reason for presenting your special person with an art piece is to remind her about her importance in your life. And in the process, she will be reminded of yours whenever she looks at the painting. Therefore since the painting is going to hang on her wall forever, it needs to be something that holds a special meaning to either the both of you, or just to her.

3. Different The art piece you begin looking for needs to be something that isn’t common. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you need to spend all your savings on an original painting by a famous artist. But you could take the time to visit several art galleries in order to find one that is beautiful and unique.

Once you have considered the above, you will have a faint idea on the painting you are going to buy. At the end of the day, it is mostly the thought and effort you go through to find the perfect painting, that will matter to the recipient. But make no mistake; it needs to be a good painting nevertheless!
