Gift Guide: Online Shopping for Décor. Change your Environment, to Help Change Your Mood!


“Get Better Get Well Gifts” at! Let us help you find that perfect gift!
If you can’t be in a new environment, change the environment that you are in. If you are in a cold, plain hospital room, why not hang up posters that reflect your style or cheer you up. If you are stuck in bed at home, it might be fun to give your room an uplift and hang some new pictures to spruce up the place. Sometimes just a small change can make a big difference. Change the stuff you look at, and you just might have a new outlook! Try these 5 online stores listed below for some new décor options.

1. – This is a smaller, home run business site out of Philadelphia, PA. There are over 170 posters for sale with more items being added daily. This site specializes in theatrical posters, video/DVD release posters, mini posters and movie poster postcards. Some of the posters are so affordable and start at $1 each! If you want a movie poster that she does not have listed, she can try to find it for you. Nice personalized service.
2. – I was pleasantly shocked at the collection of items at I had made the assumption that everything on the site would be fancy, expensive art. Well, yes they do have canvassed art, but they have so much more. They carry posters, and framed artwork, as well as really unique wooden plaques, and inspirational quotes. They have mounting and professional framing services too, with a wide variety of price points, and easy ways to search for the perfect art piece. You can search by artist name, style, collection and more. It will be very easy to decorate your own home, or to give the perfect gift to inspire your friend. I am sure you will find the perfect artistic gift!
3. If someone you know is home recuperating from a recent hospital stay or just not feeling well, how about getting them a wind chime for outside their window. Woodstock Chimes, a leading manufacturer of precision tuned wind chimes, that are perfect for soothing an ailing individual from the inside out. I have the “Amazing Grace” wind-chime hanging outside my kitchen window and I love hearing the music that comes from the wind outside. It is relaxing and a gift that never stops, as long as there is wind, there can be music. I think it is great to think beyond the typical flowers, cards, etc., as get well gifts. Gifts that enhance someones environment can be just as therapeutic. The chime was $30 and was not something I would have normally bought myself, but now I have grown to love and look forward to the music coming from the wind chime outside. Get yours here:
4. – is a “sister site” to has been in business since 1998, so with 10 years in the business I trust them to buy my posters. This site has a huge variety of posters to choose from. It was very helpful to search, using the subject and product search buttons on the left hand side. They have music posters, art posters, motivational posters and more. I have seen many advertisements for when surfing the internet, but never used them until recently. I quickly received the poster rolled in a tube, the poster was in great condition and it was very easy to maneuver the website to find exactly what I wanted. I think this website is the perfect option for finding a less expensive decorative gift for those in college, or even to jazz up a hospital room. If you bring it to the hospital to give as a get well gift, it is a great option because they can take it home and remember your thoughtfulness. There are many motivational and inspirational themed posters that would work great!
