Art from the heart

The range of mounted lasercut cards, £22 each, can be used as a card or framed as a gift. The designs are taken from an original hand-cut by designer Jo Green of Garboldisham, near Diss. These can be personalised for a fee. Alternatively Jo has worked on commissions for customers, creating a special piece of hand-cut art based on a brief. Prices for these vary from £75 upwards, depending on the size and intricacy of the design.

Portrait of love

Give a unique gift for their wedding day, or as a first anniversary gift, with the help of Aimee Paints of Norwich. As many details as you can provide - from children, pets, venues, hobbies and colour schemes - can be included in these one-of-a-kind paintings. They take between eight and 10 weeks, as each project is started from scratch, but those short on time can gift an “on the way illustration” certificate, while Aimee completes your gift.

Fully mounted A4 illustration is £180 or 10ins x 8ins is £160.
