Have a few people on your gift list that are just spewing with creativity? They’re always coming up with something that just leaves you in awe? Then they will love getting one of these gifts for creative people! These gifts will continue to foster their creativity and for that, they will love you forever. Here’s to the artsy people in your life!
I started doing a gift guide for creatives last year. You know those ones who can take nearly nothing or what you would have considered garbage and turn it into one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen in your life? Yep, this list of gift ideas is geared toward those people.
I’ve left some of the creative gifts from last year on the list (because they were too good not too!), but I’ve also added in more gift options to help you find the perfect gift for those artistic people on your list this holiday season.

Gifts for Artistic People
Artist Palette Ornament
Give a nod to their artistic abilities with this quaint little palette ornament. This is one of those gifts that you truly can’t go wrong with – everyone loves an ornament that expresses them!
Am I the only one who seems to get great ideas in the shower, but then forget them as soon as I get out? 🙄 This notepad solves that problem! They’ll have a place to jot their idea down right then!
Inner Sparkle Tote Bag
Not only will they love this bag for it’s message, but they will also be able to easily transport their crafting supplies wherever they go! They’ll sparkle just carrying it.
Ways to Be Creative Book
Just like writers with writer’s block, we creatives often hit creative blocks – and that’s where this book comes in! It will help to get their creative juices flowing again!
Creative not Neat T-Shirt
It’s true – usually if you’re in the midst of a fantastic creative span, there won’t be a thing around you that will be neat and tidy. This shirt will validate their not-so-neatness.
Artist Palette Catchall Trinket Tray
This little tray will be the perfect bedside tray for the artsy person in your life. It can catch their jewelry or loose change at the end of the day, keeping it all corralled – making their lives a little neater.
Artist Palette Cheese Tray
Another artist palette tray option here, but this one for entertaining! This is sure to add some color and interest to their dinner party – even though those creatives tend to always be interesting. 😃
Happy Little Accidents Bob Ross Game / Bob Ross Coffee Table Book
I mean, can you ever go wrong with a Bob Ross themed gift? The answer is no. Never. If they’re fun-loving and into game nights, snag them the Happy Little Accidents game. If pretty pictures are more their thing, go for the coffee table book.
Van Gogh Salt and Pepper Shakers
Talk about the most interesting pair of salt and pepper shakers! Any creative soul will appreciate these! The shakers even replicate Van Gogh’s ear he cut off.
Paintbrush and Palette Earrings
This is the perfect way to help the painter in your life express themselves through jewelry! This is a three piece set so they can opt to wear the palette and a brush or just the brushes!
Who better to think about and potentially gain inspiration from while drinking their morning cup of joe than some of the greatest artists of all time? Whether they’re a painter, photographer, sculptor or any other kind of artist, they’ll appreciate one of these mugs. Any of the mugs will only set you back $25. Also, did I mention these are from The MET. Yes, as in the one and only Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC – you know you’re getting quality here.
Hand Lettering 101
This guide to hand lettering is a hands-on workbook that teaches how to create beautiful script, starting with the basics. If you’ve seen your gift recipient fawning over hand lettering artwork that’s popular right now, this would be the perfect gift for them! Besides letters, Hand Lettering 101 also covers learning how to write fancy numbers!
Craft Supply Storage Box
As a somewhat crafty person myself, I can say with confidence that there isn’t a creative soul on this planet who wouldn’t appreciate and couldn’t use more storage for their crafting supplies. This one has handy pull out compartments, so they could just pull out one of the compartments if they wanted or they could pick up the handle of the whole thing and go to work.
Color Wheel Necklace
Here’s one that’s perfect for artists and color lovers! This color wheel necklace will allow them to show off their love of color! And since it has every color – it’s going to match whatever they wear! This necklace is another gift that’s less than $20!
Color Wheel Umbrella
Another for the colorful creatives on your list, they would adore this color wheel umbrella! Heck, I think even non-creative people would love this umbrella – it can brighten up the dreariest of days!
Dual Tip Brush Marker Pens
Treat them to a new set of colorful brush marker pens! The great thing about these markers is that they are dual tipped – there’s a fine point end and brush end. They are great for calligraphy and hand lettering but also perfect for adult coloring books and creating general art. These markers come with over 60 colors.
Solar Photography Kit
This is a really cool art kit! You put any object on the included paper, expose it to sunlight, then rinse with water to get unique blue prints. You can literally use anything on the paper, so the possibilities are endless! This solar photography kit is also a great buy – $15! Any creative person and kids would love this one too!!
