Adorable hedgehog themed gifts
Because the hedgie lover in our life would be tickled pink to get this cute little hedgehog
Mr. Hedgehog is a fabulous, unique gift for the discriminating Hedgie lover. Elegant, but quirky. Handsome, yet comical. Classic, but ridiculously silly at the same time. Old World Animal Portraits are at their best when they sport an over-the-top ornate frame and are proudly displayed in elegant surroundings. It takes a special sense of humor to do it!
Mr. Hedgehog fancies himself a replica of this portrait of Mozart when he was six years old. It was painted in 1763. The artist painted the surroundings and the clothes, and only then had the boy pose for the finishing touches; his face. Mr. Hedgehog was luckier than that; I paint completely from photographs, so there was no posing necessary.
I’m not the only person having fun anthropomorphizing hedgehogs. There’s an adorable hedgehog named Azuki who lives in Japan. His person made him an instagram superstar by taking the most enchanting pictures of the little fellow on “camping trips”. He’s got top-of-the-line camping equipment, including a tent, a kayak, coleman stove, ice chest. Makes you want to go camping. And makes you want to get to know a hedgehog, ’cause he sure is a cute little fellow.
But as cute hedgehog gifts, my prints are what’s going to bring that warm and fuzzy hedgehog happiness to the hedgie lover in your life. You can personalize the gift by creating a little story explaining the glorious life of this little fellow, and how he is their hedgie’s ancestor. These are great prints to hang near a hedgehog’s digs. Hedgehogs appreciate art, too.
