Looking for a perfect gift for your artistic friend? Check out this list of gift vouchers for art supplies.
When I asked Artists on Facebook Art Groups about what’s the best gift for an artist, many of them replied “Gift card”. The main reason is, that if we are not 100% what art supply our friend needs, we should not buy it. Some supplies are very expensive, and it would put our friend in an awkward position if we give him a gift that he won’t use.
A good solution are gift vouchers, it allows our friend to choose an art supply that she/he really needs + it’s a great idea if that’s a group present, and you can’t decide what you should give to your friend.
Below is a quick list with art shops that provide gift vouchers for art supplies.
