10 Gift Ideas for Art Lovers




I don’t know about the rest of you, but each Christmas, housewarming, wedding shower, or birthday I get a little anxiety attack trying to find the right gift that will evoke joy! If you have an art lover on your list (speaking as one myself) I’ve got you covered!


1. Art Mugs

I am a HUGE mug addict. I have a whole cabinet dedicated to just my mugs and people have to get special permission if they want to use them. I have a couple of butterfinger kiddos in my house and more than once favorites have crashed to the floor. Mugs for an artist are an essential!

2. Artwork




There’s always the classic idea of unique artwork. Etsy has a plethora of great artists to find original artwork. You can buy original paintings, and some shops offer cheaper prints of their originals.

3. Punny T-shirts



4. Artist Book


Everyone needs a great art book to sit on their coffee table as a great conversation starter or flip through. I own two books that showcase the works of Andrew Wyeth, one of my absolute favorite artists, and I love to sit down with a cup of tea and immerse myself in his works.

5. Art Supplies

My husband is forever asking me if I don’t already have enough paints and brushes. Um…NO! I get a special thrill with new paints and brushes, not to mention palette knives or canvases.

6. Gift Certificates

If you are not an artist yourself, you may feel at a serious loss in knowing just what art supplies the artist in your life might like. I LOVE shopping for new art supplies, so when I get a gift certificate I am in my absolute GLORY! Even if you give a gift to Amazon, they will have even more to choose from.

7. Accessories 


I love to surround myself with pretty, artsy things, while not have them on me at the same time?

8. Magnets


Who can’t use some magnets?

9. Home Accessories 


I think it’s safe to say that all artists like to indulge their senses with beautiful or interesting surroundings. Home accessories scratch that itch.

10. Art Movies or Instructional Videos


Movies are a great way for any artist to connect with their favorite artists or to learn a new skill. There are a HUGE variety of videos for them to help master their skills, from watercolor to woodworking.

What do you guys think? Is there anything you would add to this list?
