We think that the best part about arts and crafts is that you’re never too young or too old to participate! The act of creating anything can be calming, energizing and even therapeutic! Don’t know where to start? Goodly can help! Let’s take a look at some of the creative gift ideas you’ll find in our Crafty Collection.
This fabulous watercolor set, a blank canvas and your favorite beverage: it’s a recipe for relieving stress and encouraging creativity! And if a blank canvas sounds a bit too intimidating, try one of our paint-by-number kits. Painting of any kind is wonderful for engaging fine motor skills, as well as problem-solving skills. As an added bonus, painting has been shown to increase the painter’s ability to focus! Combine all that with our gorgeous painting options and you’ve got every reason to give painting a whirl! Don’t forget, these fun options make excellent gifts for new hobbyists and experienced artists alike!
The beauty of drawing is that anything you create with pen, pencil or even chalk counts. We’re talking 3D masterpieces, doodles and stick people, too! Similar to painting, drawing utilizes fine motor skills and allows the artist to express themselves and focus. The whole world’s a canvas when it comes to drawing, which has been shown to boost memory and lessen anxiety. Time to stock up on those supplies! Pens and pencils make excellent and inexpensive gifts.
We’ve got options for those who might need a little more structure, though. Draw and Be Happy offers easy-to-follow drawing exercises inspired by art therapy practices, and that’s just one example! Make sure to take a look at all our gifts for creatives!
Depicting Van Gogh’s famous painting Starry Night, the fun women’s socks above are sure to serve as inspiration for any artist, no matter their medium. And no matter what you think of your abilities, remember that Van Gogh sold just one painting in his lifetime. Keep on producing art! The world needs it. And on the sock front, we’ve also got tons of other fantastic socks for men and women, from funny to punny and more, and they’re the kind of unique gifts creative and crafty folks will love!
There is a particular type of creative out there, and they’re not often talked about: the ones who prefer to color between the lines. There is nothing wrong with being this kind of artist! We believe that there is room for plenty of stars in the creative sky. And for those types, we offer a unique and whimsical gift: the puzzle kit. These fun kits include a gorgeous puzzle, a tube of puzzle glue and a straight-edge tool so that when you’ve finished putting all the pieces in place, you can hang your art on the wall! Puzzles are great for stress relief, so you might want to pick up all our kits!
