Canvas prints - the perfect housewarming gift!

Finding original housewarming gifts can be a real challenge, but that’s because you probably never considered a bespoke canvas print!

Imagine the look of delight on your friend or family member’s face when they unwrap the perfect canvas print for their new home – one that you’ve designed especially for them!

Finding original housewarming gifts can be a real challenge, but that’s because you probably never considered a bespoke canvas print!  

Imagine the look of delight on your friend or family member’s face when they unwrap the perfect canvas print for their new home – one that you’ve designed especially for them!

What makes for the perfect housewarming canvas print?

Choosing the perfect canvas print to offer as a gift may seem quite tricky, but if you stick to some tried and tested formulas, you can’t go wrong:

 

  • Family – Nothing makes a new house feel more like home than seeing the smiling faces of your loved ones looking down at you from your walls, which is why a family portrait or candid image is the number one choice for a bespoke canvas print. If the gift is for family members, you’ve probably got some great shots in the archives – but if not you can always be sneaky and arrange a shoot with them as “practice” for your photography. Present them with a big canvas print of the best shot when they move into their new home as a lovely surprise.
  • Pets – In much the same way as a family picture looks great in a new house, a bespoke canvas of their pet is one of the most welcoming housewarming gifts you can give. Perhaps offer to pet sit while they pack, or take their dog for a walk and use the opportunity to take some photos.
  • Shared memories – A housewarming gift is all about welcoming the person to their new home, and what could be more appropriate than a canvas print of some wonderful memories you’ve shared? Either pick one great photo that reminds you of good times together, or go all out and create a photo wall collage in Photoshop of all the fun you’ve shared!
  • Shared jokes – If you fancy giving them something a little more leftfield, and you share a particular in-joke with them, you could have a canvas printed up that relates to that. This is a great way to remind them of your relationship and give them a laugh whenever they see it.

 

There are loads of great housewarming gifts you can bring to a new home, but we think you’ll agree that a canvas print is a great option that works for everyone!
