1. Nobody else can give it. There is only one. Way to look special!!
2. When you give it, you can tell them how the piece is specific to them or your relationship and then they'll think of YOU every time they see it. Wow!
3. They don't need some boring Dean Koontz book.
4. Giving art makes you look thoughtful and refined - a great way to pre-qualify your opinions when it comes to arguing about politics and religion over the holiday dinner table.
5. Your purchase contributes to success of an artist and thereby promotes the arts in general. Have you seen the cultural dumpster fire we call modern culture? If there was ever a time to support the arts in your community, THIS IS IT.
