The Frame TV by Samsung. This TV is amazing! Not only do you get the latest flatscreen, 65" LED 4K UHD technology but you also get the stellar Samsung reputation, a company that has been crushing the digital technology competition for the last couple of years. But, that's not all. The Frame TV is a true chameleon that morphs into a beautiful painting when it's not being used. This is a TV that's both beautiful and smart; it has a built-in motion sensor that activates the Art Mode whenever someone enters the room, displaying an ultra high definition digital rendering of your favorite works of art. Now that's an energy efficient addition to your home's unique decor.
In addition to the clever Art Mode feature, this TV is customizable to match your home's distinct style. You can select from four different frame styles; black, white, beige, and walnut. Although The Frame TV is not wireless, it is definitely a minimalist when it comes to required connection ports. Only one line is required. All features are powered by this one connection so you don't have to worry about several in-lines draping your wall and wrecking your home's Feng Shui! We definitely recommend purchasing the extended warranty because this baby is not cheap. But hey, you get what you pay for, right?
Everyone on your list would love to receive Deep Sea Sand Art as a gift this year.

Isn't it funny how we deprive ourselves of beauty based on austerity or frugality concerns? So, if you have someone on your list that fits this description, please treat them to years of relaxation, contemplation, and beauty they would otherwise not provide for themselves!
