HEY! HOLIDAYS GIFTS YOUR ARTSY FRIEND WILL ACTUALLY THINK ARE COOL

Welcome back to Hey! Holidays. We’re comin’ atcha all month with AH-MAZING gift ideas for all types of vinas. No matter who you’re shopping for, you’ll find a perfect gift on one of these lists. Have more suggestions for gifts? Tell us by using the hashtag #HeyHolidays and tagging us @ilikevina.

The holidays are fast approaching and it’s time to grab the rest of those gifts. It can get a little distracting when it comes to gift buying (not to mention a little overwhelming with all of the options and sales). So we’ve done the work for you! Here are five perfect gifts for the artsy vina in your life:

TAKE HER TO A DROP-IN ART CLASS

I’m a big fan of giving experiences instead of physical gifts. Getting to spending time with your vina and make some super cool art? What isn’t winning about that?! If you’re not sure where to find a local art class, most art museums hold sketching tours – just check their website!

Everyone knows that caffeine is the key to artistic perfection. The holidays can be stressful and what’s a better way to get your vina through it (and still making art) than coffee? Grab your vina some nice coffee beans and a super cute mug. If you have a little more cash, pair that with a french press so you can make sure their cup is always full.

UNIQUE WALL ART

The key to keeping an artsy vina inspired is to surround them with bomb and beautiful pieces. Not only does it keep you inspired but it also looks amazing in insta shots. Seriously. The key here though is to make it something unique and special. Society6 is a great site to buy a print – supporting an independent artist is a plus. But if you’re artistic as hell too and you want to make it super special – make it yourself!

As the world’s biggest nerd, books are the number one thing I give (and ask for) when the holiday’s roll around. You know why? Because there is literally something for everyone. Grab a hand lettering book, a book on photography, or even a book on creativity itself! Not only are they thoughtful, but books have the potential to take your vina to the next level. Do they have a fave artist? Buy them a coffee table book for all the #inspo!

THE TABLET THAT DOES EVERYTHING

If you’re able to put a bit more money into the holidays this year, this may be the perfect gift. Wacom tablets can totally transform your artsy vina’s life. Seriously. They make any artistic project easier by allowing them to essentially use a pencil on their computer instead of a mouse. It’s a straight up game changer, y’all.

Are you an artsy vina? What are you hoping to get this holiday season? Let me know in the comments! Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Hey! Holidays gift guides and tweet @ilikevina with the hashtag #HeyHolidays to tell us what you’re gifting this holiday season!
