Geeky Gift Guide: The Aspiring Artist

Every Friday from now until Christmas, I will be sharing a gift guide for four different kinds of geeks! In years’ past, I have shared gift guides for fandoms like Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Sherlock as well as unique niches like foxes, witches, and unicorns. This year will have a heavy focus on geeks and our hobbies! Hobbies like gaming and fitness will be included in these gift guides plus two surprise geeky gift guides!

This week’s Very Geeky Christmas Gift Guide is all about those that love to create and craft art! As an artist myself that has aspiring artists in her siblings, I’m including items that could help your giftee learn to draw, craft, and create their own one-of-a-kind pieces! Read on to see my ten picks for aspiring artists this holiday season.
