A master artist during the Age of Expressionism, Vincent Van Gogh famously painted some of the most recognizable works of art in the world. Bouts of mental illness caused him to famously cut off his ear and madness finally drove the artist to commit suicide in 1890. When choosing gifts for a fan of Van Gogh, popular themes often center on his colorful paintings, Starry Night and Sunflowers. Below you will find a few gift ideas for fans of Vincent Van Gogh.
The market is filled with journals and sketch pads decorated with sunflowers and the vibrant blue/yellow colors of Starry Night.
Sunflowers Gardening Gift Basket
Use faux sunflowers to decorate a gift basket for a gardening enthusiast that includes packets of seeds with gloves, trowel, shovel, and hand rake. Other items to consider: sun hat, lemonade mix, luxurious hand soap, and hand shears. Instead of using a basket to pack the gifts, think outside the box – such as arranging items in a watering can or gardening tote.
The bright colors of sunflower jewelry (like this fashionable cuff by DBK Design Arts) add a splash of yellow to outfits with accessories that demand attention. For a pricier gesture, seek out earrings or a pendent with petals made out of gold and a center filled with diamonds.
Van Gogh Sunflowers Colored Pencil Set
“Sunflowers” was the first of a series of still-life oil paintings that Van Gogh created with variations of three or fifteen flowers. At Shakespeare’s Den, you can find a delightful gift for art lovers with the “Sunflowers” Colored Pencil Set. With six different colors (black, white, blue, red, yellow, and green) measuring 3 ½” long, this decorative set is perfect for Van Gogh fans, sunflower lovers, and budding artists.
Van Gogh Irises Art Tote Bag
To carry the beauty of Van Gogh’s work wherever you go, the Van Gogh Irises Art Tote Bag is sold on ArtistGifts.com and pays homage to the artist’s painting, Garden of Irises. You can also pair with a matching mini umbrella of the same print.
