I always leave the hardest people to shop for gifts at the last moment. One of these people are artists. Yes, I can replenish their art supplies or give them countess drawing books. However, I took the challenge to find unique gifts for the artistic people I love. Here are my thoughts of unique gifts for the artist.
This makes on every list of unique gifts because it human intellectual and inspiration that a book breathes into a person that it can it never be wrong. So what artist look for the following books:
- Art Books
- Graphic / Design Book
- Books with fantastic illustrations
- Books with unique text design
- Classical Literature Books with heavy text, and write a note to the artist to draw illustration on top of the text to create an art book. If you can even cut out scenes too.
Artist are always in need of frames, either to display their artwork or artwork from other artists. Grab all different sizes and colors, so they can make a mini gallery at home.
Purchase a used suitcase and convert it to a carry-along art studio. This is perfect for an artist without a studio. Read this blog post for how to convert your vintage suitcase.
Artist are always looking for inspiration. Look for amazing prints to inspire the artist, prints can be either fabric prints,book prints, poster prints, or home decor.
