This year has been hard for everyone and we have endured so many things from lockdowns to natural and social storms. We can either stay stuck in focusing on all the negative things or use this time when social life is a bit frozen to focus on developing and improving our hobbies and strengths.
If you have always considered learning to draw, paint or embark on a fashion industry related path, now is the time to try and see where it gets you. If not now, then when?:)
If you are already working in the creative industry or drawing is your long term hobby, there is no better time than this Christmas to reward yourself with some new art supplies and try new techniques.
Art therapy is an amazing tool to cope with stress and therefore art supplies make a great gift for anyone in the family and friends. Coloring, doodling, painting, sewing, whatever it is that you choose to gift, it will keep the person engaged in the present and help with overwhelming feelings during this time.
Here are my 10 top choices for Christmas 2020 gift guide and I hope you will like them and find them useful.
1. Comic Book Art Lovers
If you know someone who loves comics or has been doodling for some time, here are some basic supplies you could gift them to help them get started on their journey. This artboard is such a great quality and you can use a variety of techniques for comic art and it's suitable for both beginners and advanced artists. And this professional art pencil set is a great gift for any illustrator or artist as it has everything you need for sketching, organized into a nice, little case.
2. Calligraphy Enthusiasts
Calligraphy has always been such a beautiful artistic expression to me but I have never tried to do it. This year I'm excited to try new things and these supplies for beginners will be perfect to start with.
3. Watercolor Illustration
Watercolors are a technique that I tried but never really got into it and it's something I would like to learn about more. Watercolor background in fashion illustration can look really beautiful and emphasize the designs. When it comes to working with wet media, I find having the right paper really makes all the difference in the world. I really like this Ucreate paper for that reason and it's also great if you like to use other media for accents. And this little watercolor kit is a perfect gift as it has everything you need to get started but also a really nice quality.
A good canvas pack is always a nice gift for an aspiring artist and if you add some brushes or a paint kit, you will definitely make a person happy. This painting kit contains everything a beginner needs and has the benefit of looking great in a cute packaging perfect for Christmas.
5. Coloring to Combat Stress
We could all use new stress coping techniques this year and coloring can be extremely relaxing and fun. A lovely adult coloring book and a set of quality coloring pencils will make a great gift for someone who could use some distraction.
6. Fashion Illustration
All you need to start with fashion illustration are the right sketchbook and coloring pencils or markers. Find some inspiration and practice as much as you can as with practice comes perfection:)
7. Knitting, Sewing and Crochet
It's always useful to know any of these skills and it can benefit you immensely, even if you are just doing fashion illustration. Getting to experience knitting and sewing can give a fresh perspective on design and illustration plus it's always nice to be able to make cute, unique accessories for yourself and others.
