Why canvas prints make the best Christmas gifts

Ok, we know, you don’t really want to think about Christmas just yet, but it is the time of year where you need to start planning your Christmas gift list and start deciding who’s getting what. The shops have started to deck their halls, the mince pies are stocking the shelves and before you know it, it’ll be time to exchange presents and hope that you’ve made the right choice. While not entirely altruistic, we highly recommend our canvas prints for Christmas gifts – want to know why?

Personal gifts mean the world

The most valued Christmas gifts are always those that touch your heart strings and show someone how much you care. Because you can select any image you want for your canvas print, you can ensure that the picture has deep, personal meaning to the recipient. Maybe a lovely candid shot of a newlywed couple that you took at an event or even their wedding, or a lovely picture of a friend or family member’s child? Perhaps you want to bring a bit of nostalgia into the mix by taking a photo of the church where your grandparents or parents got married and get that printed onto canvas for them? The choices are almost endless; just choose a picture that you know will resonate with them.

Shared moments

Have you had a fantastic holiday with your best friend and want to remind them of the laughter you shared? Did the whole family head out for a special meal together this year – a rare occasion when a big group of relatives got together? Did you take your partner out for a romantic meal and got the waiter to take a picture of you together? These shared moments make truly captivating Christmas canvases – a snapshot of happy times together.

Getting to the heart of it

If you’re feeling a bit creative and want a canvas Christmas print that will really impress, draft in a bit of help from mutual friends. Think about all the things that epitomise the person you’re going to give the gift to and build up a collage of their favourite CD covers, family photos, snaps of the two of you together, tickets to special gigs, event invitations, images that depict their favourite foods or hobbies, postcards from places they’ve visited or really want to go to... go wild and really try to get the heart of the person’s character. They will love the result and be really chuffed with the efforts you’ve gone to.

Cheap Christmas gifts are always a winner!

Sure, you could lavish your lover with jewellery, spend a fortune on a designer handbag (or manbag!), or splash out on an expensive, ornate silver frame to present a special photo in a boring, traditional style – but the truth is, you don’t need to spank the bank in order to make someone happy this Christmas. Our canvas prints are so reasonably priced, that even a HUGE statement canvas won’t break the budget. It’s also worth looking out for special offers, as we sometimes do 3 for 2 canvas prints or other great deals - which means more money left in the coffers for a Christmas drink for you!
