Christmas is no doubt the most joyful time of the year for us to get together with family and enjoy each other’s company. It’s a time of giving and sharing, but with everyone in search of the ultimate Christmas gift, the next few months of shopping can be very stressful! Here at KAB Gallery we’re keen followers of the latest trends, and the hottest Christmas gift wish-list items.  

This Christmas its all about a lasting gift – a treasure for someone to enjoy forever and to reminisce about good times spent together. With Christmas just a few months away everyone is looking for the perfect present that will provide the biggest surprise, the grandest present, and above all the present that will bring their recipient endless enjoyment and a feeling of supreme love! What is this perfect gift you wonder?

Have you been googling “on trend gift ideas” or “the best Christmas present” or simply asking your loved ones if they need anything? “Oh, I don’t need anything,” they say. But you know that isn’t true. You ask them what they want, and, if you’re really lucky, they’ve told you exactly what and where you can go buy it, but now all the romance has been deflated and the surprise is ruined. What’s the alternative? You definitely don’t want to resort to buying a calendar and DVD at the last minute, along with a lot of other underwhelming stocking fillers.

So what IS the gift everyone will be wanting this year?!

We have it – ART: The ULTIMATE gift!

Here is your 3 step guide to selecting the BEST, most unique, and completely on-trend gift this year!

  1. Quality – Look for a piece of art that screams quality and luxe. Nothing beats a unique original artwork! Stick to a quality original and remember that a print is…well…a print (HOT TIP: nobody will treasure an overpriced print-out in a generic frame forever). An original piece of handcrafted beauty is something that can be loved endlessly and become a sentimental family heirloom. You’ll always be onto a sure-fire winner with quality!
  2. Beauty – If you think buying someone an artwork would be hard because it’s too personal, think again. Similar to purchasing a unique perfume or a special piece of jewelry, you can also purchase an artwork that they will love. The trick is to buy something that is truly beautiful to be enjoyed for its beauty, and is a true expression of the love you have for the lucky recipient. For extra peace of mind ensure you rely on the expert gallery team for help. They are the experts who match-make art to art collectors daily and will definitely be able to help. KAB Gallery’s team will also be able to provide a gift receipt, so if worse comes to worse your recipient can easily exchange their gift for a piece of art they REALLY love. 
  3. Personalise by including a little bit of yourself – Make it personal in a different way by personalising from you rather than for them. Purchase a piece of art that connects via the colour, mood, subject matter or even the location of the artist who created it. Combine this with one (or more) of the above suggestions for the most wanted gift ever!



So just remember KAB Gallery’s golden rule of Q.B.P. (Quality, Beauty, Personalisation), and with a little bit of extra help from our Art Expert team you’ll definitely be on your way to making this the best Christmas yet for your loved ones!
