When deciding what kind of present to buy for an artist, first consider what they love about art. If they love to study art history, then check out some of the best-selling artist action figures by Today is Art Day. We have Frida Kahlo, Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, and more available. Each vinyl toy comes with accessories that correspond to their career and life, and the packaging features facts about them.
But if creating art is more your gift recipient’s style, then they’ve got to try Viviva Colorsheets. This revolutionary watercolor set reimagines the conventional artist palette. Instead of paint tubes or pigment cakes, Viviva Colorsheets has produced a hand-held booklet full of 16 transparent watercolors. It’s easily portable. To get started, simply wet a brush and run it over the desired color.

With another twist, it’s back to a pinecone again.
