I love me some holiday gift guides, but they’re usually so pricey! So I put together my own list of cheap gift ideas for artists. These can be their own small gifts or as a nice add-on with other gifts!

Great video! I actually love the sock suggestion; I recently got thermal socks and they come in handy if the room is a bit cold!

I love your videos

SpoTulip says:

Great video, Sam! Pretty good list to reference to.

Another gift idea that I can offer is getting an artist some cool bags. Pencil bags and messenger bags are great for an artist who carries their supplies on the go and they can be found pretty inexpensive too.

Nephtalie Albert says:

This was awesome! I might asked to get these: the traditional gifts since I liked working with my hands more.

Art of Ley Saulnier says:

Yaaassss I love gift guides for artists! This is fantastic, Sam! You covered so many bases with this one. Also, I love Senshistock and it makes me so happy to see them get a shoutout. They're such a fantastic stock photo provider.


Much needed video…Thank you so much👍
