Ten Gifts for Creatives – Artists, Makers and DIYers
With the holidays just around the corner it is time to start thinking about those perfect gifts for everyone on your list. Inspiration is hard to come by. Whether you are shopping for an artist, a writer, a designer or someone who regularly engages in creative thinking, chances are, all they want for Christmas is a few good ideas.
If you are anything like me, you want to make each gift personal and very special. Something to show how much you truly care.

So today, I’m here to help you with that by lightening your creative shopping load. Here is a list of 10 truly remarkable and utterly unique gift ideas for the creative ones in your life:
