We all know that the best gift for an artist is usually a specific art supply they have asked for, or a gift card to their favorite art supply store, but sometimes it is fun to give (or receive) gifts that celebrate the person as an artist. Here are some of my favorite gifts ideas!
Inspirational sketchbooks or journals and fun pens: Every artist I know loves paper and writing utensils! Sketchbooks and journals are great for artists to do quick sketches, and jot down ideas. The inspirational quote is an added bonus to boost creativity, and who doesn't love fun and colorful pens?!
Books/Magazines: Whether it is a book about your artist's favorite artist, or about techniques or mediums they are trying to explore, you can't go wrong with a book about art! You could also get your artist a subscription to one of their favorite art themed Magazines!
Charm bracelets and other jewelry: There is no doubt, most artists love decoration and that does not usually stop at their own appearance. Why not find them a charm bracelet that showcases their love for creating art? The best part? You can usually find handmade jewelry on places like Etsy, so not only are you buying something for your favorite artist, but you are supporting another artist as well!
Artist themed clothing: Most artist's need clothing anyway since theirs is usually covered in paint!
Inspirational tools: The gift of inspiration! There are plenty of great books, decks of cards, and activities out there for artists and writers to help them get past their creativblock. (Please click picture for 642 Things to Draw. For the "Wide Open" set, go HERE.
A funky version of their favorite medium: I just love these stick colored pencils that my sister got me! Rustic, and a great collectable!
Handmade by you: Do you create as well? No one will appreciate the love and care that goes into something handmade more than your favorite artist!! For instance, my sister designed this giraffe for me, and it is one of my all time favorite gifts!!
