You might not realize it now, but buying a gift for an artist is fun for you, too. Having a creatively-inclined person in your life means that you get to look for items that are likely more quirky and clever than your average gift. But how do you find them? You’re just in luck! We’ve curated a special collection through My Modern Met Store, which was founded on bringing you the best creative products from makers around the world.
We’ve got gift ideas for artists to supplement their studio practice, learn about the field’s history, and grow their creative careers. Some of our picks include the revolutionary Viviva Colorsheets, a portable watercolor palette that’s the size of a smartphone for easy art-on-the-go, as well as artist action figures like Frida Kahlo and Vincent van Gogh. These five-inch vinyl toys have been immortalized by the company Today is Art Day, and they’ve made them educational by including, among other things, facts about the iconic artist featured on the box.
My Modern Met Store has many books that are helpful to creatives of all kinds. One of our favorites is the popular 642 Things to Draw, which is a twist on the average sketchbook that offers a bevy of drawing ideas. But if your gift recipient has the art part down and is trying to grow their e-commerce shop, they might benefit from books like Art Inc. Written by illustrator Lisa Congdon, it can help them achieve financial success through their work.
