Last-minute Christmas gift ideas
Various sources of inspiration – such as an immersion into foreign cultures, femininity, encounters with nature, and a passion for handicrafts – have been combined in a portfolio of unique art prints, large-format wall hangings and poetic art cards. This year, instead of passing fashion trends, we can give lasting artistic joy. In the article below, I’ve put together a gift guide for you. Have fun browsing!

Art has an extraordinary way of creating joy. It's as individual as each one of us.
Surrounded by layers of vintage paper in various shades of green, the pink square's radiance will captivate you. The art print EMERALD GREEN ( A4, from €52.45), limited to 300 copies, is hand-numbered and signed by the artist in soft pencil.
The art print CITRONS À L'INDIGO, available in A4 for €42.45, is a luminous display of colour inspired by the street markets of Marrakesh.
In the art print CHALK & TANGERINE (from €42.45), delicate shades of soft pink and grey are artfully challenged by a powerful red that forms a direct dialogue with the viewer. This quality reproduction, with the original done on vintage paper, is available in A4, 30 x 40 cm and 50 x 70 cm.
This monoprint (€54.95), inspired by the intoxicating city of Marrakesh, is available in a 30 x 40 cm size. At sunset, the city, also known as the “red city” due to the colour of its walls, reveals itself in a colourful cloak of dark red tones, expressed in the work MARRAKESH.
Art under €90
Art over €150
The muted colour palette and softness of the wall hanging BLUE EYES (€179.95) usher peace into the room and our often-hectic daily life. A Japanese brush was used to paint the original on pages of an old book.
Wondering how to choose the perfect gift? Here are 4 tips for finding the right artwork.
- Refine your search. Is your recipient passionate about a specific theme or genre that they have in their home gallery? Is it abstract paintings and collages, or perhaps silhouettes, that will make their face light up when they unwrap their gift?
- Skilfully playing with colour. The artwork you select should fit in with the colours in the room and create a harmonious overall picture. Is there a specific colour concept in the apartment where your gift art piece will be displayed?
- Make way! Should your gift be a large-format soloist on the wall or a small new eye-catcher added to the collection in a Petersburg hanging? The presentation location will often determine the image size. That's why it would be wise to take a discreet little tour of the art lover's home, enabling you to choose the right large or small-format work.
- Captured moments. The shared moments that build a special bond might include far-flung trips, nature walks, having the same favourite flower or an emotional friendship experience. An artwork could form a lasting celebration of these connecting moments.
