No Gift Receipts Needed
My focus this week will be on a piece for an upcoming wedding. This will be my gift to the bride and groom. What I enjoy most about these paintings, is the personalization and uniqueness of them. I try to incorporate the recipient's favorite flower(s) to make the piece more relevant to them. I choose flowers based on the letters of the name. For instance, in this painting, I chose a Water lilly, Aster, Lavender, Shasta daisy, and Honesty. In pen, I write the names of those flowers alongside each letter.
Aren't gifts of the homemade variety the most memorable and rewarding (whether you make them or you commission someone else to make them). And it seems even more these days, that people tend to give gift cards, fearing they may buy a duplicate item and knowing they are giving the gift bearer the power to "buy what they want".
You'll be sure the gift bearer won't receive doubles of this. And....you don't need a gift receipt either. What a great idea for not only a wedding present, but for an anniversary, baby gift, or housewarming gift too.
