A Piece of Artwork
Choosing a piece of artwork for a close friend can be a lovely experience for the both of you. While many traditional gifts are perishable or short-lived, a beautiful piece of art can last for years and serve as a keepsake of your friendship. You don’t necessarily have to break the bank- check out the local galleries in your town for some affordable illustration or photography pieces? You could also try sites like Etsy for some unique homemade items from new and aspiring artists.
A Poetry Book
Not everyone is into poetry, but if you’ve an artsy group of friends, a nice poetry book might be really well received. When we read something that really moves us, be it political poetry, feminist poetry or simply something abstract, it’s a wonderful thing to share this experience with friends. If you’re not sure where to start, check out some of the best poetry of 2019. If none of these take your fancy, head to the library and have a read.
