100 Gift Ideas for Artists

From Modern Wood Carving Kits to Haute Couture Coloring Books

— November 25, 2015 — Art & Design
These gift ideas for artists are perfect for amateurs and professionals alike. Whether the person on your list is a world-renowned artist or simply someone who enjoys DIY projects, these gifts are sure to spark some creativity.

For those who take their art seriously, there are a number of gifts that can help bridge the gap between the analog and digital world. For example, there are a number of drawing tablets that allow artists to turn ordinary sketches into digital artwork. There are also ergonomic stylus sets that give artists more control when it comes to creating custom digital designs.

While some people make a living from their artwork, others simply use art as a form of relaxation. In recent years, adult coloring books have become a popular way to de-stress because they encourage consumers to get in touch with their creative side. For the amateur artist on your list, you might want to consider a city-specific coloring book, a classic art coloring book or even a hip-hop coloring book.

Regardless of what medium they prefer, these gift ideas for artists are guaranteed to inspire.
