This Artsy V-Day Gift Will Bring You Togetherby Lauren Passell on February 03, 2012
Just upload a picture, wait for your neat-o kit to arrive in the mail, then paint it with your lovvvverrrr. It’s both a personalized gift and to-do activity. If you buy this for, say, your girlfriend, you’ll be the hero of Valentine’s Day. Your girlfriend has probably never heard of Paintapic, so you seem pretty cool, plus it is just incredibly thoughtful. You can’t tell anyone about this gift without them saying, “oh, that’s so cool and thoughtful!” In fact, if I did not buy this gift for my girlfriend, and then after Valentine’s Day I heard that my friend bought it for his girlfriend, I would be like “you @**hole. Thanks for making me look bad with your awesome gift.”
p.s. If all this sounds good, but a little too PG for V-Day — you’ll want to check out the R-rated Love is Art Kit. There are many similarities to Paintapic: It’s a kit that involves painting. It’s personalized. It’s something you do together. But it’s definitely not paint-by-numbers. Ahem.
