Gifts For Artists

gifts for artists

For both birthdays and Christmas it can be difficult to know what gifts to buy and it always helps if those close to you have hobbies and interests that you can focus on. If there is an artist amongst your family and friends or perhaps someone who is keen to start out, then we have the perfect artist gifts for them. We sell Gift Vouchers in varying denominations, and can post a lovely quality voucher to a friend or loved one in the post.

Budding artists will always appreciate a helping hand in getting the things that they need especially in the early days when they are unsure what direction their work will take and what medium best suits them. They may need to experiment before they find their niche. They will need sketch books, art paper, pencils, paints, an easel and possibly a variety of other accessories to explore their talent but we have everything that they will be looking for here at Pegasus Art.

Our acrylic paint sets by Atelier and Daler-Rowney or oils by Cobra, Rembrandt and Winsor & Newton are the perfect starting point for any budding painter. Alternatively we have superb watercolour sets by Schmincke and Winsor & Newton. Consider our excellent pencil sets by Derwent or Faber-Castell or our fabulous Jakar Charcoals and our sketching set. Partner any of these with our high quality papers, leather sketchbooks and easels by Mabef. We also offer pencil cases and artist boxes to store treasured materials.

If you are still unsure as to what to buy then Pegasus Art gift vouchers could be a great option for you. These are available in denominations of £5 to £100 and will enable the lucky recipient to choose exactly what they most want or need from the full range here at Pegasus Art.

If you require further help in making your choice of gift then please do contact our friendly team of artists who will be happy to discuss your requirements. We are always on hand to assist you and we love helping budding artists to get started on their adventure!
