When it gets down to gifting art it’s hard to know where to begin, but I think a sure place to start for the perfect present is with a print. When choosing a piece for someone else a print will give you loads of flexibility when it comes to price options and size, and they will mostly require pretty standard framing, so it makes everything that little bit more simple. Unlike other media that can be extremely subjective, prints are generally a great crowd pleaser, and will give you a wide choice of subject matter and style to choose from for that flawless, unforgettable gift. Limited edition prints are also a fantastic way to own art from really well-known established artists at affordable prices, so if your best friend, sibling or partner loves Tracey Emin, you can make their dream come true and gift them one at a fraction of the cost of an original. From geometric to illustration, monoprints to screenprints, a good print is easy to connect with, fun to live with, can be a wonderful memento, and is definitely a step up from socks. Read on for my 5 Prints Perfect for Presents, all under £500.


Under £100

Leigh Bagley

Right: Diamond Blue

Leigh Bagley’s geometric prints are always popular on Rise Art. I love the colour combinations of these pieces, the clean lines and minimal approach. They will make any interior pop and are a great gift for the design orientated.


Under £200

Mychael Barratt

Notes from the Underground

A View of the World from North London

Mychael Barratt makes gorgeous maps and story book scenes depicting parts of London and beyond. This playful interpretation of rolling hills and exaggerated buildings is perfect for the North London lover out there.


Under £300

Clare Halifax

Bristol Zoo

Who wouldn’t love this magical scene of Bristol Zoo! Gorgeous depictions of flamingos, penguins, zebras and more with a monotone colour palette and a hint of pastel that will uplift forever. The combination of muted pinks and greens are great for a modern home.


Under £400

Sir Peter Blake

Left: Max

Right: Emily

Here is an example of an opportunity to buy a legendary artist like Sir Peter Blake at affordable prices. This limited edition series titled ‘Tattooed People’ bring the art of ink to life with beautiful sentiment, and they really stand out when framed.


Under £500

Rebecca King


These electrifying, neon prints depict the high life of some of the world’s most complex and intricate urban landscapes. Full of vibrancy and energy, I love these works for their unique approach using laser cut etchings and standout presence. High impact for someone who likes the fast pace of city life and all the world has to offer.
