Maker Gift Guide
Do you have an artist or maker in your life? You’d like to buy them a gift, but don’t really know what they’d like? Here’s a list of my tried and true suggestions. These are things I use day in and day out and I absolutely love them. I wouldn’t recommend them, otherwise.
Membership to an instructive Class/ Website:
My personal favorites are Skillshare and Creative Bug. You can use these sites to learn to do anything from knitting to card making, gift wrapping to illustration. The instructional videos are beautifully produced and packed with inspirational projects and insights. Both sites are adding new videos all the time so I doubt you’d ever run out of content to watch. They are very affordable, also. Click this link to get THREE MONTHS of Skillshare for only $1. Or you can Buy a 12-month gift subscription to Creativebug and get a $15 amazon gift card.
I use these almost every single day. The colors are vibrant and mix beautifully. Winsor and Newton is a great, but not alarmingly expensive, brand for art supplies.
Winsor and Newton Gouache is excellent as well.
For a less expensive set, I’ve been really happy with Prang Watercolors. I use them all the time when I teach kids’ art classes. The colors are beautiful!
