If you're shopping for an artist in your life, then you may be searching for some creative ideas. Well, before you start adding things to your cart, it's important to consider what medium they specialize in. If they're an artist who draws, such as an illustrator, designer, or cartoonist, then you may want to look at things from their perspective. Fortunately, we've picked out 20 thoughtful gifts that are ideal for anyone who loves to sketch traditionally or digitally.
Sketching supplies like high-quality pencils, or a set of Procreate brushes, are just two ways to make an artist excited to start a new project. Similarly, you can enhance their studio by choosing a useful accessory, such as a bamboo stand to hold their drawing tablet or a dimmable LED light box for tracing drawings.
If the person you're shopping for is all stocked up on utensils, however, then consider treating them to a book that celebrates other great draftspeople from art history. Picasso and the Art of Drawing, for example, showcases some of the Spanish artist's best sketches. Additionally, an art print, such as one featuring a drawing by MC Escher, will look beautiful whether it's displayed over their desk or in the home.
