A meaningful gift for each of my sisters.

December 18, 2017


In partnership with Art.com

One of the hardest people to find a gift for each year are my sisters. Maybe because they mean so much to me, and nothing ever seems good enough. This year I was able to team up with Art.com to come up with some meaningful gifts that I know will last them forever.

I thought about how it is so hard for me to ever commit to art in my home or get anything framed for that matter! So as I thought of each of my sisters, I picked out an artwork that reminded me of them in hopes that it would be a winner. It was really nice to be able to have them framed or mounted right on Art.com so that they are ready to hang. Anyone else have art that has been sitting for a year waiting for a frame? (Hand raised.)




Art.com has a huge selection of products, so there is really something for everyone on your list. I couldn’t resist picking out the classics like Renoir, Fra Angelico, and Monet. My sister Madeline spent last year working in Ireland so I did a wood mounted map of Ireland for her as a keepsake. I also found a good Audrey profile for my sister Gianna  in highschool who loves her movies as much as I do.


One of our favorite things for us sisters to do together is to have coffee, so I set up a time for all of us to gather over a good Christmas brunch. This is a fun gift to work into a table setting, and surprise your guests with! The hardest part was picking out the artwork, but the since these piece were mounted on wood, the only thing left to do was a find a good ribbon.

One of the reasons I was so thrilled to team up with Art.com is that they wanted to focus on remembering to give in charitable ways this season. I have come across several families this year who were misplaced from their homes, starting over, and going through a difficult time financially. I know first hand how having a semblance of home can make all the difference when things are hard. I selected a gallery wall of classics to pull together, and I will be gifting this to a very special deserving family this Christmas. I am so grateful to be able to give the gift of art in a meaningful way. Here are the ones pictured above

What is your favorite art piece you have ever received or given? I’d love to hear!

P.S. ART.com is having a final holiday sale and everything is 50% off sitewide today. Totally grabbing this poster for the boys room.
