Christmas Stocking Fillers

by Dec 11, 2023Art Supplies

Buying ‘useful’ gifts for artists and crafts people might not be easy, unless you know exactly what they use already and what they already have to hand.

Stocking fillers for artists / crafters

However, there is another way to look at it. Many, maybe most, people who are artistically inclined are open to experimenting with new media and different products. If you buy them something they have never tried before you are offering more than just, for example, the acrylic paint to a watercolour artist. You are offering an experience – the opportunity to experiment with or to revisit a medium they haven’t used in a while. Few will remember a couple of years down the line what physical gift someone gave them – but give them a new experience, light a new artistic fire and your gift will be remembered for ever.

Jane at Gadsby’s has picked out a few products which make great stocking fillers and might spark the artist or crafter who receives them to try (or revisit) something new.

Come into the shop and have a look – there are thousands of ideas perfect for stocking fillers.
