Buying artwork can be super overwhelming... especially if you're buying it for someone else. The best place to start? Think about what else the giftee is into. What's their favorite movie? What's the color of their bedspread? What are they pinning and instagramming? What's their style - vintage or contemporary? After you get a few clues, it's time to play art matchmaker... Ugallery breaks their collection down into very manageable categories - medium, style, color, size, they even have a decor guide if you have a specific room in mind. Oh and they have a "view on the wall" feature that allows you to visualize the artwork in a real space. So. Cool.

Even cooler? They're offering 15% off to all of you awesome readers with the code artsocial15 until December 21st!! Hurry and get that art for the holidays, friends.
