Gift Guide: The Artsy One

Are you shopping for the visual artist in your life? Here are my 2019 picks for your artsiest artist!

Something They Want

Have you ever just sat in awe, watching beautiful calligraphy videos on youtube? No? Well, your artsy friend has…I’m your artsy friend… Sometimes the best gift is the one they won’t buy for themselves. Maybe Calligraphy isn’t their main art form, but chances are they’re dying to pull out a fresh sheet of paper and scroll the day away! (Faber-Castell Pitt Calligraphy Pen Set at Chapters/Indigo)

Something They Need

This set comes with, not only, a gorgeous Moleskine sketch book, but a set of watercolour pencils to take your sketches to the next level. Perfect for budding artists and old pros alike!

Something to Wear

Keep your artist warm with this gorgeous wrap from Love & Lore! (Love & Lore Colour Block Wrap at Chapters/Indigo)
