With January 1st right around the corner, you’re probably looking for an awesome New Year gift idea! Yes. You heard me right. If there are only two things I’ve learned over the past years as a wedding and lifestyle photographer, its that:
Every year, during the holidays I think about this—what does that look like? It could be as simple as taking time each week to intentionally have a bubble bath or to go on a date together, OR it could be extravagant. Thats where this NYE Limited Edition Kit from LOVE IS ART comes in.
For those of you who’ve never heard of Love is Art, its a company founded by South African-born artist, Jeremy Brown (Check out his Instagram HERE). As an abstract artist, Jeremy was inspired by the 1960’s French artist Yves Klein and some performance art pieces by Andy Warhol. He’s created paintings of his own during intimacy, and when a friend complimented him on a painting that was hung inside his house, he explained how it was made. She immediately asked him to provide her with everything she needed to make a painting with her husband on their anniversary as well! He put together a small package with all of the materials needed and wrote a directional note for them to follow as well. They absolutely loved it, and the idea was born.
The kit now includes a specially-treated cotton canvas and organic, non-toxic paint. Covering all bases, it also includes a painters tarp to protect surfaces from paint splatters, disposable slippers to make a clean walk from the canvas to the shower and even a body scrubber.
I love this kit because it provides a unique bonding experience for couples! Its lets you work together as a team to craft your own unique masterpiece, while still getting some intimate time together.
The only thing I can think of that would make this New Year gift idea more exciting and fun is to have a photographer (pick me!) come for an hour and take some photos of the two of you spending some time and making art together— obviously before things get too risqué!
The photos below are some images I helped the founder, Jeremy, create for their upcoming Instagram campaign, though I’m promoting this New Year gift idea purely on my own. I’m sure he won’t mind?? This really would make for a PERFECT New Years gift. Scroll down to check it out!
Coming in at only $120 for the limited edition, its definitely a worth-while experience. Most couples have never had the privilege of doing something like this together, and it will most certainly be the perfect surprise for your partner or loved one! (p.s. There are other kits for the rest of the year too, some for as low as only $60)
Head over to Love is Art and take a look around. You’ll find a wide variety of exciting boudoir kits for couples. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed I sent you there!
