The Perfect Gift Idea

The holiday season is now just around the corner.  Even though Dubai has every single kind of shop imaginable I still struggle each year on what to buy my husband and parents.

A few months a go I was at the ArtE fair at Times Square Center and I met a fantastic artist who’s name is Jennifer Stelco who was busy at the event completing one her paintings.  As I walked past her stand a picture of three children caught my eye and I discussed with her the possibility of her making a version of the painting with five children (I have five children so I thought this would be a great idea as a Christmas gift for my husband).

When I got home and looked at her website I found out that she could actually paint one of my photographs which of course would be so much more personal.  I searched through my holiday albums of this summer and found the perfect picture of my two daughters.  The cost was  reasonable and the end product exceeded all my expectations!

I hope this gives Expat Echo Dubai readers another gift idea for the person in their life who has nearly everything or is hard to buy for – be it for Christmas, anniversary, birthday or any other momentous occasion!
