Gift-giving—whether for birthdays, anniversaries, or special holidays like Christmas—can be daunting for some people because of the intense pressure attached. You want them to like your present genuinely, but at the same time, you also want to stick within budget. High-quality gifts don’t always mean splurging. Sometimes it just takes a little planning and research for shopping options.
This article shares a list of pocket-friendly but thoughtful gift ideas for creative people in your life. So let’s delve right in!
1. Waterproof Notebook
A waterproof notebook is a genius gift for any creative person on your list because sometimes you just don’t know when incredible ideas will strike you. It’s something they can bring in the bathroom while destressing in the tub or taking a shower — yes, it can be one of the grossest places in your house, but, believe it or not, it’s where some of the most brilliant ideas are born. Or it can also be the notebook they bring on vacation or on their daily commutes to work, where they can scribble thoughts, write down opinions on trending topics or sketch the city or random scenes. Now, there’s no need to worry if it’s raining or snowing outside because it’s a waterproof notebook.
2. A Set of Sharpie Coloring Pens
Creative people will always appreciate when they receive art supplies as gifts because they will never run out of projects to use them for. For example, coloring pens can be used up and run dry from time to time, so they will always run to the nearest art store to replenish their supplies. In addition, coloring pens and pencils are pretty affordable and come in a wide range of quality and price points, so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from no matter how much budget you have, plus it can also be a great way to color-code tasks in a planner, from meals to prepare, budget to track, and kitchen cleaning tips to keep in mind!
3. A Cute Sticker Pack
Stickers are a fantastic gift that doesn’t break the bank for everyone, whether friends, family, colleagues, or corporate clients. Print high-quality stickers that they can stick on to jazz up their laptops, tumblers, and other stuff. You can also go the extra mile and personalize your gift by printing the recipient’s name stickers. Use an SVG file of your preferred sticker design, or take your pick from our extensive collection of SVG files to ensure high-resolution and top-quality output.
4. Peel-and-Stick Chalk Wall/Magnetic White Board
A peel-and-stick chalk wall is a practical gift for friends, family, or co-workers. They can install it in their room, home office, or work desk. It will be a valuable addition to their creative life that they can use for doodling or jotting down their to-do list or spur-of-the-moment ideas.
5. Personalized Tote Bags
Customize canvas tote bags with cute, stylish designs that fit your recipient’s interests. These gifts don’t break the bank but are guaranteed to be appreciated by anyone receiving them. Tote bags are an eco-friendly way to use for shopping and carrying stuff instead of single-use plastic bags. They can also be trendy. For example, do you know someone who loved Tim Burton’s Netflix series Wednesday? Then gift them a DIY tote bag with a downloaded SVG file design. Trust us; they’ll absolutely love it.
