3D Printer Pen

This 3D Printer pen is from Tecboss and is available on Amazon for $41.95. It’s like a 3D printer except in pen form. If you know someone who loves to doodle or create sculptures, this would be a perfect gift for them. 3D pens use heat to shape the filaments into place, so children using this pen should use the finger covers that come with it as well as be supervised during use.

Pastel Dreams Watercolor Set

Introduce your artist friend to this set of pastel watercolors from Prisma Marketing on Amazon. Just the colors themselves are sure to inspire them to create dreamy watercolor paintings.

The Artist’s Way

The Artist’s Way is a book written by Julia Cameron. It was first published 25 years ago, but still remains a staple read among many creatives. It introduces Cameron’s key tools for creative recovery: Morning Pages and the Artist Date. It also contains hundreds of exercises and activities to hone one’s creativity. This will for sure revitalize any artist suffering from creative block or burnout.

Mugs: Paint Water?

Sometimes we get our cups mixed up in the studio… so here’s a funny gift for all the artists in your life who have almost drank their paint water instead. These mugs can be found from SugarSpoonMugs on Etsy.

Drawing Tablet

Drawing tablets are a “dream-come-true” gift for any drawer; It’s a gateway to so many opportunities for artists. I’ve decided to add a more affordable option from Huion on Amazon to give to your artist friend as a gift. It’s small, but it’s a high quality drawing tablet that’s just right if you’re on a budget.

Watercolor Pencils

I absolutely love working with watercolor pencils: You get the best of both worlds – The control of colored pencils and spontaneity of watercolors. These ones from Arteza on Amazon come with 48 pencils for just $16.

Artist Apron

As artists, we tend to get our clothes messy. A lot. Try giving your artist friend an apron as a gift – It’ll help them keep their clothes more cleaner… And be more stylish in the studio! This one is from Tran from Amazon.
