Need to wrap up a gift for your artsy friend who’s having a birthday soon but you’re out of ideas? Relax! With art aficionados, it’s all about supporting their passion and appreciating their craft. For example, painters would be grateful for the top of the line paint brushes and writers would appreciate a good writing tool like a Rhodia notebook. Here are some gift suggestions that may just put a smile on art enthusiasts’ faces:

 

Rhodia notebook

 

    • Personalized art kits – Instead of buying packaged art kits from stores, why not assemble an art kit that caters to the recipient’s individuality? Some of the items you may throw in are Stabilo art supplies, different kinds of paint brushes, good quality paint that comes in unusual colors, and lots more. Take some time to figure out which art supplies the recipient needs or items that he or she has never owned before. This shows that you’ve really given the gift some thought.

 

    • Classy notebook and pen – For writers, you may give them a classy Rhodia notebook and fountain pen with their names engraved on it. Rhodia notebook is a fountain pen friendly notebook so they’re like a match made in heaven. If you like, you can put them in personalized boxes and perhaps engrave the recipient’s favorite quote or motto on it. You may throw in some top of the line ink pens too while you’re at it!

 

    • A fine piece of artwork – You may choose between paintings, sculptures, classic books or any artwork piece that matches the recipient’s personality. Better yet, get the recipient an artwork piece that he or she has always wanted to have. You may check for art suppliers online or join online art forums in case you need any help locating an art piece.

 

    • Museum, art gallery passes – If your friend values experience more than items, you may want to give him or her free passes to visit museums and art galleries. These places will not just help ignite art passion but they are ideal places to go to if you want to expand your knowledge about the world. Make the experience even more special by joining your friend in the trip and then taking him or her out for a coffee date for some bonding time.

 

    • Art courses or classes – Try to look for any art courses or classes available in your area and sign him or her up. This shows that you don’t just value your friend’s passion but you’re willing to help improve his or her craft in any way possible. That’s one of the best gifts you can ever give.

 

    • Support art-related activities – If you don’t have time to pick out or assemble a gift, ask your friend about any art-related project he or she is planning to do or start and offer your support. That could mean physical, moral, or financial support. The important thing is that you show your friend your willingness to give all out support.

 

Whatever option you choose, just make sure to add a touch of your personality which will make the gift truly meaningful. For different writing instruments and gift bags, check out Notedian.
