a drawing gift guide


Looking for simple gifts for someone who draws or is looking to incorporate drawing into their creative routine? Consider assembling a gift basket full of drawing supplies, give them a class or invest in a few great products that will inspire them. I have put together a handful of ideas get you thinking about giving drawing supplies for gifts.

Sketchbooks are a great gift. Gather a few different types, bundle together and give as gift. You can find a great variety here
This will always be my favorite gift to receive!

or give a handmade sketchbook like this one from Raspberrie Press

a set of drawing pencils- Staedtler is my favorite brand

a complete drawing set from prismacolor for the beginner

you can't go wrong with kneaded erasures- they would make a great stocking stuffer
