Are you looking for new and creative ways to connect with friends, family, and coworkers? Recent world events have many of us feeling isolated and anxious. Someone with anxiety may struggle with overthinking, which can lead to stress. Consider gifts that shift their focus to something creative, or give a gift that is guaranteed to make them laugh. If you can't be there in person, a gift to show you’re thinking of someone can go a long way.

2. Offer Quiet Comfort
Too often, anxious thought patterns crop up when we're trying to relax. A fun and engaging craft kit can keep anxious thoughts at bay while focusing on fun and creativity. Grown-ups seldom get a chance to play.
3. Put Together a Gift Bag
Pair a couple of drawing books in a canvas tote, and load it with:
- Unscented markers
- Colored pencils
- A pencil sharpener
- A set of acrylic paints and brushes
The key is to keep the kit self-contained; you want the recipient to open up the bag and find a few hours of relaxation. Add a personal note wishing them a wonderful time. Whether they are accomplished artists or beginners, the kit will be both engaging and soothing.Art Find All the Art Supplies You Need!
