Holiday Gift Guide For Creatives*this post contains affiliate links

I know a lot of people already have their holiday gift list checked off, but for those of us who save Christmas for December, we still have a lot of gifts to buy! Maybe you have a creative person in your life and aren’t sure what to buy them. I have a pretty extensive art and craft supply gift wish list, so let me share it with you.

Sure, it already looks like Hobby Lobby threw up in my house, but a girl really can’t have too many pens, or rolls of washi tape, or inks, or … A creative heart can’t have too many supplies.

So if you have a creative person in your life and you want to give them a gift they will love, here are a few ideas.

1. Give the Gift Of Nice Markers

Whether someone is into planners, or illustration, or card making, I promise you they will love a set of Copic Markers. This post explains why they are better, and worth the investment. You can buy them one at a time, or buy a $2,000 inventory – so they WILL fit any size of budget!

2. An Organized Year is the Best Gift

Creative minds aren’t generally know for their organization skills. I use, and LOVE Erin Condren planners because they are laid out logically, full of bright colors, and inspirational quotes. These planners have a huge cult following of creatives who decorate and journal in them, as well!

3. Everyone Needs A Good Pen

Micron pens make a great gift for ANY creative, because they can be used for everything! From sketching, to hand lettering, to bullet journals, these are a relatively inexpensive gift that will definitely be appreciated.

4. Watercolor Kit

5. Speaking of Watercolors

If you have a creative person on your gift list this year, give them something they will love. Who knows, they might thank you with one of their creations!
