Whether you’re gearing up for a holiday, birthday, or just the every day, it’s always a good idea to have gifts in mind for the artist in your life. There are a ton of items out there that are sure to inspire your favorite creative person, so how do you choose? Luckily, the search is over. We’ve found some great gifts for artists that'll spark their inspiration—no matter the season.
Some of our favorite things fuse analog media with sleek digital technology. The Friendly Swede Brush stylus, for instance, looks like a traditional paintbrush, but it’s cleverly disguised as a pen to use on their favorite tablet device. A 3D printing pen also brings drawing into the 21st century with its capability to create small sculptures out of their renderings.
But, if your creative person prefers to keep pencil to paper, have no fear. There are plenty of great gifts for artists that don’t involve plugging in a device. For artists on the go, there's Derwent’s Sketching Wallet. It’s small enough to fit in a handbag, but it comes equipped with a sketch pad as well as graphite pencils, eraser, and sharpener. Or try Viviva Colorsheets, a portable paint set that makes painting en plein air a breeze. In either case, when inspiration strikes, they'll have the right tools at their fingertips.
