It’s like Netflix-binging Bob Ross videos, but with a dose of dry + quirky humor and fewer happy little tree references.

December is upon us, and if you’re like me, knowing what to gift people can be tough.

So, for those of you who are looking for gift ideas for the creative person in your life, I got you! I know that niche pretty well, if I don’t say so myself. So without further ado, let’s get to the list:

1. “Everyday Watercolor Flowers” How-to watercolor book by ME

My second book of the Everyday Watercolor series just released this past June, and it’s full of beautiful blooms! It covers basic techniques, color theory and shapes, to painting loose and realistic style flowers!


2. Set of vintage stamps

I love this shop! And you know, snail mail for the crafty person is a form of expression! Adding these vintage stamps to your envelopes really takes it up a notch!


3. This watercolor brush

My favorite watercolor brush of all time. It’s perfect for anyone who’s new to painting OR more advanced! An amazing size 6 round, synthetic sable hair brush.


4. Artist Pad Paper collection

THIS PAPER! This is the paper I use all the time and there’s a mini pad set (2.5×3.75”- it’s so cute) and a full size (9×12”) bundle. There’s even just a Stonehenge Aqua set which includes the Coldpress (the paper I use for watercolor), Hotpress, Coldpress Heavy and Black.


5. “By Hand” beautiful book on brush lettering by Nicole Miyuki

This is a beautiful how-to book that looks great on a coffee table AND can teach you all about brush lettering! Great gift idea in combo with the paper and brush I mentioned above!


6. Skillshare subscription

Creatives LOVE learning. There’s thousands of design, illustration, business, photography and MORE classes on Skillshare! This would be an incredible gift for a creative if you want to take it up a notch.
