Unusual Gifts for the Tough to Please
You know the ones. They have everything, they don’t need anything, they don’t want anything…but, you better not show up empty-handed! Here are a few great ideas that should please just about anyone.
Turn Your Favorite Photos into Works of Art
Here is a fabulous, personalized and unique gift for anyone on your holiday list – or gift yourself. Our friend Sharon Marantz Walsh is an artist, who has expanded her talents into a new endeavor – FOTO ART, “creating forever memories.” Her inspiration comes from the photos her clients send her – portraits, families, pets children. Almost any subject can become a work of art, a keepsake, something that can be displayed, not tucked away in a draw.
The cost of creating the Foto Art is $350. Once you have the art, you can apply it to any medium you choose – canvas, note cards, holiday cards, or even as a new banner for your social media and websites. It will put a smile on your face. FOTO ART is the perfect personalized, unique gift for all occasions. Get the details.
