Five Wall Art Gift Ideas Guaranteed to Impress your Valentine

Think all you need is love? Yeah, right. If that were true, none of us would experience any anxiety around Valentine’s Day. A gift of wall art is a beautiful way to express a broad range of sentiments from the romantic to the comical.

Wall art can be fully customised, so instead of chocolates or flowers, you can show your loved one that you’re truly thoughtful.

Here are five arty gift ideas guaranteed to surprise and impress your Valentine.

1. Gift a wall art print from the day you first said ‘I love you’

While it’s important that your photo is high enough in resolution to create a beautiful wall art print, this particular idea is less about finding the perfectly crafted photo and more about finding a perfectly timed photo.

The trick is to make sure it’s genuine. If the photo is from months after that special day or even the day after, it’s not going to work.

Pulling this idea off relies on a good memory. If you’re unsure, don’t be afraid to suss it out with your loved one first. Talking about the day you said ‘I love you’ will raise no suspicions. In fact, reflecting on such moments will only get you in the good books.

Once you’ve selected your photo, print it as wall art. Size doesn’t matter, but should be commensurate with the quality of the photo. If the photo is a selfie of you both at the local pub, select a smaller canvas size. If the photo is of a spectacular mountain view, select a larger canvas size.

2. Gift a wall art collage of your most precious moments

Select a series of your most significant moments together (e.g. beach holiday, engagement party, wedding day, honeymoon holiday, birth of first child, birth of second child).

This idea is easy if you’re the one behind the camera or have access to where all the photos are stored.

You can customise your collage on canvas and select a ‘love’ theme – it’s a wonderful way to remember those special moments every day, beyond Valentine’s Day.

3. Gift a spectacular acrylic wall art print of your wedding day

Select the ‘hero’ shot from your wedding day album – this is the often the largest photo that appears in your photo album or it’s the one your partner loves the most (perhaps it’s been their Facebook profile photo!).

Get access to the original high quality digital file, hop online and use it to create a custom print in acrylic glass at 75 x 50cm.

Both the acrylic glass and aluminium prints convey a sense of sophistication ideally suited to professional wedding photos – and bigger is definitely better on Valentine’s Day!

If you want to show your loved one that you know who they are and appreciate what they love to do most in life – whether it’s a hobby, a sport or a favourite food – this is the gift to win them over.

5. A collage wall art print of you and your partner pulling funny faces

This one’s not for the workplace office wall! This is more for the home office or craft room. It’s fun, entertaining and will provide some serious laughter.

Gather up all those photos you haven’t posted on Facebook (overshare alert!) and you haven’t yet printed – funny photos only the two of you have enjoyed – and create a collage of comedy gold!

This gift will guarantee that both love and laughter ensues.

This Valentine’s Day, honour those precious moments. If you’re running low on photos, just choose an image your loved one might really like. After all, we have millions of images to choose from, so you’re sure to find one that will be just perfect.
