6 Tips for Buying Art Gifts in 2018

1. Buy the artist a useful gift

Get the artist a present you know they’re going to use. Don’t buy them art supplies for a type of art they aren’t even into or something they already have. Something like the amazon echo speaker might not be a “art gift” but it is still a nifty little tool that they will get a ton of use out of. They will be able to play music, answer phone calls, or start audio books hands free by using their voice. Some more examples are things like the art themed watch, leather pencil pouch, or one of the unique mugs below. Paintings or decorations are also great gifts.

2. Buy the artist a unique gift

There are so many cool gifts for artists out there. Don’t get them something they could just go to the store and pick up. Get something that is unique to their interests. For example, if you know they like tea and coffee, don’t just get them a plain mug. A mug like the art history mug on the list below would be a much better gift for an art student or art enthusiast. Other good examples from the list below would be the paint brush vase and porcupine color pencil holder. These are things they won’t find in stores.

3. Learn kind of art are they into

There are various categories of art. If you know they are really into painting get them something that relates to their interests. If you know they are really into oil painting, then get them a unique oil painting like the frog with glasses below. It’s something they can hang on the wall of their home, office, or bedroom.

4. Consider the artists age

Age is an important thing to consider. If you’re looking for gifts for art gifts for kids or a gifts for a young artists, then something like the 3d pen or art desk on the list below would be great presents. If you need something a gift for a professional artist you might want to get them something like a draw pencil for their iPad so they can store all their sketches and artwork in one place. If you are looking for gifts for teenage artists then something like the paint rain poster or frog oil painting are great ideas.

5. Determine if there are any art supplies they need

If you know they are running low on a certain type of art supply they use a lot, then that would be a creative and cool gift for artists. If they use oil pastels a lot, but their pastel set is old and beat up, consider getting them a new high end one. Also try to think of things they haven’t even thought of. Something like the hand massage or a Bluetooth speaker are gifts for artists that they will use a ton. Another example would be if you know have a very basic apron for painting, consider getting one that is more art themed like the choose your weapon apron below.

If you are trying to decide what to get an artist for Christmas, a birthday, or for another occasion, take a look at the list of cool gift ideas for artists below!

6. Who is the Art Gift for?

Are you looking for art gifts for girls or guys? If you need a gift for a female artist then a unique gift like the heat reactive mug might be cool for them to use while they’re working. If you are looking for a gift for artsy girlfriends then you might even want to think about something funny like the hedgehog color pencil holder.
