Wall Art as Gifts

We might be a little bias, but wall art is undoubtedly our top pick for the ultimate housewarming gift. It’s thoughtful, practical, and personal! If you know your friend’s taste, this is an excellent way to show how well you know their style. For friends who have recently purchased new furniture for their home, pull from their growing color palette and choose wall art to match. If they haven’t gotten very far in the furnishing process, don’t fret! Simply ask them their vision for the style of their space, and shop wall art by category. Still stumped on a subject? Abstract art is always a safe bet. Plus, the conceptual appearance will touch the recipients emotionally and make them feel like you put extra effort into selecting their gift.

Personalized Canvas Prints

For a close friend or family member who just made a big move, give them something meaningful! A one-of-a-kind canvas print is perfect for turning homesickness into a celebration of memories. It’s the modern version of a visual mixtape! In addition to practically endless layout options, you can choose from a single or multi-panel canvas. Create this personalized gift yourself, and add sentimental photos for your recipient to hang on their new walls.

Custom Photo Prints

Houseplants

Forget a typical bouquet of flowers; opt for a houseplant that will live for years! Indoor greenery is universally appreciated, and potted plants are ideal if you’re not sure about the recipient’s taste. A green gift is risk-free but still unique, making it perfect for practically anyone! For foolproof foliage, choose a low-maintenance plant like a succulent or bamboo. Looking for a houseplant with guaranteed longevity? Choose an air plant that doesn’t require dirt whatsoever!

City Skyline Art

Help your friends and family celebrate their new city with a piece of art that shows it at its best. Get them excited about their move with a sleek skyline print. This gift is perfect for a regional or international move. Choose a photo of their city at sunset, or go for a classic black and white print. Put a positive spin on this formative time, and celebrate new beginnings.

City Map

Another gift that embodies a warm welcome is a classic city map! Give your friend a map of their home city, or give them a fresh perspective of their new home. Not only is this a practical gift, but it also makes a stunning art piece for any empty wall. Point out your favorite landmarks, and pair the piece of art with a city guide book! Choose from a small piece of framed artwork, or a canvas that stretches from wall to wall.

Custom Collage

For an extra-personal touch, create a custom collage. Not only can you choose a bespoke selection of images, but you can also place a personalized message at the bottom. Write an inside joke, or a simple “welcome” message! Choose several photos from a variety of life events, or a handful of photos from one special moment. It’s an unexpected gift that makes an emotional impact.
