I have always enjoyed the challenge of gift-giving. What can you buy that will thrill and delight a person? What can you give that says you know that person? Something that says, you tuned in. For one friend, I found the pop-up James Taylor book (she loved both his music and collected pop-up books) at a library book sale.  Another gift was to my mom, a quilt made from my father’s clothes after he passed away. It was a horse pin for a friend’s child who rode hourses. Maybe you had a student teacher this year, a special student, or a fellow art teacher retiring or moving. Or a mentor teacher who helped you out all year.  Here are end-of-the-year gifts for the creative people in your life.

1.  Artful Organizer: Vintage Camera

2. Art Snacks
The concept of art snacks is that you purchase a subscription (1, 3, 6, or 12-month options are available) and receive a box of 4-5 full-size premium art products.

3. Art Teacher Survival Kit
Just the pouch, but you can fill it with what you want or gift it by itself.

4. The Art Teacher Apron
This may say chef apron, but you couldn’t ask for more in an art teacher apron. It’s the perfect gift for the student teacher.

5. The Watercolour Palette Necklace

6. Crochet Doll of Your Gift Recipient: I must confess that this is my favorite gift Idea. I saw an art teacher who had a crocheted version of themselves, and I loved it. So, this is an Etsy business that makes just such a product.

7. Novelty Art Dress Socks

8. Bob Ross Chia Pet

9. 365 Days of Creativity: Inspire Your Imagination with Art Every Day

10. Handmade Leather Journal

11. Art Teacher Key Chain

12. “Not Paint Water Tumbler”
