Wanting to treat someone you care for to a nice gift? That person is a digital artist and you are left to wonder what to get for a digital artist?
When it comes to shopping for the ones in your life, it can be tricky to find a gift that they will appreciate. And when it comes to shopping for a digital artist, it can be even more difficult to find a gift they will love that is not outrageously expensive. Do not let that bring you down though, there are still multiple ways to make your favorite artist smile without breaking the bank. Even for those artists who have all the supplies, here is a list that can help you find a perfect gift for a digital artist to add to their collection, and hopefully answer the question of what to get for a digital artist?:
1. A Stylus Pen
For the digital artist who loves the feel of a traditional pencil and the ease of digital drawing, a stylus pen is the best option for the artist to get the best of both worlds. Stylus pens come in an array of different brands, kinds, and colors; giving the artist free range to choose the best pen for their art. And the best part of certain stylus pens is that they are compatible with most touch screen devices. So even if your beloved artist does not have the latest expensive art tablet, that will not stop them from using the best pen they can get.
2. A Digital Notebook
For the digital artist that does not always want to draw on a screen but still can not get away from the digital pull. A digital notebook will allow the artist to take a break from screen work but also be able to save their work in digital form. If you know a digital artist with a head full of ideas but nowhere to put them, then this is the gift for them.
3. A Desk Organizer
Any artist that works digitally was at one point a traditional artist. These artists tend to keep a small collection of markers and pens they keep for the days they are feeling the traditional vibe. For those artists with small marker collections, a desk organizer will come in handy to keep their space neat and tidy.
4. Stylus Pen Nibs
One of the best things you can give a digital artist that works with a stylus pen is pen nibs. As durable as most stylus pens are, the constant rubbing against a screen will cause the tip of the pen to wear away. With pen nibs, they replace the standard pen nib when it is worn out and allows the artist to get right back to business.
5. A Drawing Tablet
If you are one of those people that like to spare no expense when it comes to shopping for their loved ones, then a drawing tablet may be a good option for you. Of course, this gift is not for all digital artists, especially if they already have one. But for the new coming digital artists that want to expand their knowledge, a drawing tablet is a good gift for them.
6. An Adult Coloring Book
Staring at a screen doing digital work for days on end can become exhausting quickly. When your digital artist wants to take a screen break, an adult coloring book is a great way to unwind and keep the creative juices flowing. Go for a coloring book with many pages and intricate designs that are guaranteed to have your artist relaxed and replenished for more work.
7. A Multiple Device Charger
A computer, a stylus, a phone, a drawing tablet, etc; digital artists usually have multiple items that need to be charged to be used. But where to plug them up when there is no more room in the wall outlet? With a multiple device charger, your digital artist can charge all their devices at once and not have to deal with those pesky wires.
8. Drawing Manuals
Even the most mastered digital artists need assistance when it comes to certain concepts. A manual is a perfect gift for a digital artist to master different techniques and explore different ways of creating. Get this gift for your digital artist and expect to see their creativity skyrocket and their capability increase dramatically.
It can be difficult to find a gift that matches your beloved creative spirit and bring a smile to their face, but it is not impossible to come close. Whatever gift you get for your beloved digital artist whether you go the expensive route or the more minimalistic route, they will love it because it is the thought that counts. You thought enough of them and their hobbies to get them a gift best suited for a digital artist. And thinking about other people is what the holidays are all about after all.
