Amazing Cornwall Gifts to buy online from The John Dyer Gallery

The people in your life are special, and they deserve special gifts. If you love Cornwall or art then why not give them a unique Cornish gift? There are many different types of Cornish gifts to choose from, so you're sure to find the perfect one for each person on your list. We will discuss some of our favourite Cornish gifts available from The John Dyer Gallery in this blog post, and we will also provide some tips on how to select the perfect gift.

Unique Cornish gifts

The art of Cornwall is famous the world over, and there's no better way to show your loved ones that you care than by giving them something that celebrates their heritage or holiday memories. Cornish gifts are perfect for any occasion, and they're sure to bring a smile to the faces of everyone who receives them. Our small team of artists at the gallery are very selective about the Cornish gifts we offer for sale, and we only sell products that we would be proud to receive ourselves. You can rest assured that any gift you purchase from us will be of the highest quality and sure to please even the most discerning recipient.

How to select the perfect Cornish gift idea 

When it comes to finding the perfect Cornish gift, it's important to keep the recipient in mind. What do they love? What would make them smile and what would be useful? With so many unique and wonderful options available on our gallery, there's sure to be something that fits them. You might consider their favourite colour, the interior of their home, or the type of things they like to do in their spare time, interests and hobbies. If you know they're into travelling around Cornwall, you might think about getting them something related to their favourite location like St Ives. They might love the art of John Dyer and all the activity in his paintings or the colourist work of Joanne Short or the timeless romantic feel of Ted Dyer's art. The possibilities are endless!

In the end, it's important to choose something that is special and unique to them. Something they will love and appreciate, not just something you picked at random in a hurry but something that will become a personal favourite for them for a long time. So take your time and pick the perfect art-based Cornwall gift for your loved one and the key people in your life. They'll be glad you did!

Finally, make sure to wrap the gift nicely and include a card with your personal message. This will make the recipient feel extra special and appreciated. You can buy cards featuring our artist's work online from ArtEco Designs and it will add the finishing touch.

Cornish brands are a real treat

Our gallery represents three of Cornwall's best know artists and each of the artists are essentially a brand in their own right. John Dyer, Ted Dyer and Joanne Short are known the world over and their affordable art, like most famous artists, has been published in so many forms from fridge magnets, bags, hats, posters, mugs, trays, candles and more. We are proud to make available their amazing and uniquely creative artwork on a range of new items that make perfect gifts as it enables so many more people to connect with and enjoy our artists' work.

Art phone cases

We are excited to introduce our new range of iPhone and smartphone cases, which feature the work of our artists and a small range of historic art that we love too.

If you know someone with a new iPhone or smartphone, then an art phone case would make a great gift (but make sure you order the exact make and model so it fits perfectly). There are many different designs to choose from in our range, so you can find one that suits the recipient's style. We have two types of cases available, 'Tough' and 'Snap' cases. The tough cases are made from a two-layer case design for extra protection and the 'snap' cases offer a super slim design and protection from scuffs and slight damage. The 'Tough' cases are by far the most popular and we use these art cases for our own iPhones at the gallery and the quality is second to none.

Our John Dyer, Ted Dyer and Joanne Short cases are mainly inspired by the beautiful landscape and seascapes of Cornwall, and they make perfect gifts for anyone who loves this stunning county. We also have a range of historic art phone cases available featuring some of the most famous art in the world.
