Let’s see some gift ideas! Since I was little I fell in love with his art. I felt like, at some point, he was the only one who understood me. He expressed my feelings and my thoughts through his art without even meeting me.
Like Van Gogh, I put my soul into my work and have lost my mind in the process. My mind and my soul are a mess and always in war. His colors express mines, the agony that’s in my head, the screams that are in my soul, the mess that I am. He is there for me when I can’t express myself. If you are just like me, you’d love these gift ideas!
VAN GOGH: THE COMPLETE PAINTINGS (TASCHEN)
I am obsessed with this book. It has all his paintings, each one comes with its story. It’s a complete study of his work and it’s full of detailed monographs on his life and art with a complete catalog of his 871 paintings. I have a lot of books like this one, but only one has a special place in my heart. I bought it some years ago and my obsession started.
MUGS, CARDS, BAGS
The coffee from this kind of mug hits different. On my birthday last year, my friends gave me a mug with a card. The mug is fully covered by his famous painting “Sunflower” and the card has the “Starry Night” on it.
In the card they wrote “I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream” and I love it! Another good idea might be a bag and you can do it for yourself or you can order online. It’s a simple bag made of cotton and you can paint anything on it, it’s about imagination.
MATCHING RINGS AND TATTOOS
This is one is my favorite thing ever! Besides the fact that I am obsessed with rings, having matching rings with someone I love would mean a lot to me. I would wear them all the time. I’d like one with “Starry night” or maybe “Sunflower”.
I’d love a tattoo with sunflower, or some quotes like “…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”, “There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”, “Art is to console those who are broken by life.” I’d love a tattoo with a sunflower on a finger. These are just some things I think you may like because I know much I love them and how happy I was when I got them. I hope this will inspire you!
