In the early days of our courtship, my husband and I had the opportunity to test our compatibility through gift giving. I remember our first Christmas together; we were falling in love and still figuring out what made the other tick. I have always put a great deal of thought into my gift giving, often purchasing gifts more than six months before an occasion. For me, giving a gift goes beyond the tangible item being presented, it is a way for me to show the other person that I ‘get’ them and that s/he is important to me.
That first Christmas was wonderful, filled with unique gifts (we chose to exchange stockings), and when we presented each other with the same item, I knew that it was kismet (the item was Mr. Bacon vs. Monsieur Tofu). My husband’s birthday falls exactly a week before Christmas, so I make sure to put a great deal of thought into the gifts I give him. I can’t imagine what it’s like to have a birthday so close to Christmas, but I understand that the two often get lumped together. I spend the year playing around with ideas and surfing the internet in search of great gifts to give my husband. This year, I stumbled upon what may be the best gift yet: a custom print from Voice Art Gallery.My husband loves art of all types, his collection ranging from unique concert posters from some of his favorite bands (Wilco’s concert posters are definitely pieces of art) to an original sketch by Salvador Dali. I’m a terrible artist, but when I found that I could create a one-of-a-kind print, with Voice Art Gallery’s help, I immediately contacted them to let them know how much I loved what they were doing, and asked them to work with me. Voice Art Gallery agreed to let me create a print, at no cost, to share with you, my amazing readers.
What is Voice Art?
Voice Art Gallery takes your sound recording and turns those sound waves into an incredibly personal piece of artwork. You can choose to whisper sweet nothings, bring your children together to form a chorus, or even get your favorite pet involved in the recording process. Simply record the message or sound of your choice, upload to Voice Art Gallery’s site, choose your colors, and Voice Art does the rest. Everyone is an artist with Voice Art Gallery!
Voice Art Gallery is, perhaps, one of the most unique gift ideas I’ve come across, and perfect for every occasion. With Babybeats™, you can transform your baby’s heartbeat into artwork; an incredibly sweet piece (and memento) for a nursery, preserving your little one’s moments in-utero, and one of the coolest baby shower gift ideas I’ve come across.
If you’re searching for the [uniquely] perfect gift, for someone special or for the person on your list that ‘has everything’, voice art from Voice Art Gallery needs to be on your radar!
