Gifts for art lovers. 7 suggestions

Posted by Robert Lange on

Is there anything more beautiful than giving art as a gift? The profound impact art has on our lives is undeniable. Art sparks emotions, ignites creativity, and, above all, inspires. It's nothing strange to seek art gifts for the ones we love the most. However, when it comes to getting the perfect find for art enthusiasts around you, the options can feel as vast as a museum collection, which, surprisingly, doesn't make things easier.

But don't worry: having experienced the struggle ourselves, we've curated ten exquisite gift suggestions that can cater to a spectrum of artistic tastes and budgets. Let's dive in!

Gifts for Art Lovers – 10 Ideas From Our Experts

1. The Collector's Dream: A Limited Edition Print or Painting

That's an easy one: simply indulge the art lover's passion for unique pieces with a limited-edition print by their favorite modern artist. Bonus points if you manage to get it signed by the creator! Not only is this a beautiful addition to their collection, but it also contributes to the artist's journey—something extremely valuable to all art lovers.

2. Unleash the Inner Artist With A High-Quality Art Supply Set

Loving art is one thing, but what about creating art on your own? For the budding artist or the seasoned professional, a thoughtfully assembled art supply set can be a source of endless creative joy. Choose their preferred medium – paints, pastels, or drawing tools? – and select a set renowned for its superior quality or vibrant colors. A luxurious set of brushes or a pack of handmade French pastels can elevate their artistic experience by a lot!

3. A Journey Through Time? Choose An Art History Book

Who wouldn't love a richly illustrated art history book? Whether it's a comprehensive volume spanning the ages or a deep dive into a specific artistic period, a captivating art book can tell the most entertaining and enriching stories behind the masterpieces. 

Tip: Look for books with high-quality reproductions.

4. Fuel the Inspiration: A Museum Trip

This gift is a true delight for art lovers: a museum trip can be anything, from blockbuster exhibitions to intimate gallery talks. Imagine their excitement while discovering new artists, revisiting old favorites, and attending exclusive events surrounded by fellow art enthusiasts. And (trust us on that) the trip will be even more joyful with you!

You can take a step further and surprise them with tickets to a memorable art event! This could be an artist talk featuring a renowned sculptor, an opening reception for a groundbreaking new exhibition, or even a behind-the-scenes tour of a renowned museum. Such experiences offer a unique opportunity to delve deeper into the art world and create lasting memories.

5. The Best Painting Gift: Experience!

Unleash their inner artist with an invitation to art class at an art school or a gallery of their choice. Even museums offer a variety of workshops and courses catering to all skill levels. Why do we believe this is a great gift for art lovers? It allows them to explore new mediums, refine their techniques, and connect with a community. 

At Robert Lange Studios, we don't hold art classes, but you're always welcome to come and see Nathan Durfee and Robert Lange as they create art in their studios!

6. Cultivate Curiosity With a Subscription to an Art Magazine

Keep their artistic spark lit with a subscription to a high-quality art magazine. Let them stay in touch with emerging artistic trends! This gift provides a steady stream of inspiration, featuring interviews with prominent artists and in-depth analyses of current exhibitions.
