Handy Controller for Artists
Does the perfect gift exist? We think so! This TourBox controller can do everything a keyboard does, but it takes up a lot less space on your desk. Who doesn’t love that?

Not just for coffee tables! This high-quality book by Laura H. Rubin is filled with stunning paintings rendered in a hyper-realistic style, and step-by-step tutorials demonstrating the artist’s workflow.
For artists looking to go pro, this book gives a glimpse behind the scenes of Laura’s journey from an art student to a professional digital painter.
Padded Artist Glove
Comfy and cool! This two-finger artist glove, with extra padding, will help your hand glide on the screen without leaving palm or fingerprints it or activating palm detection. Great stocking filler for digital artists.
Adorable Apple Pencil Skin
Apple Pencil Travel Case
Raise your hand if you’ve ever misplaced your Apple Pencil charging adapter. I’m sure many of us have been there, here’s the solution: you can keep your Apple Pencil and accessories organized with this travel case.
Mount Your Tablet for more flexibility
We artists are known for our less-than-ideal posture when drawing. Spending hours and hours leaning over a tablet can do real damage to the spine and neck.
Tablet mounts have entered the chat. Mounting the drawing tablet allows you to change the angle and position of the tablet for maximum comfort.
Clean Desk, Clear Mind!
This is one of those things you don’t think of buying, but once you have it, you can’t live without it.
Every digital artist ever has a cable jungle behind their desks, unless they have a cable organizer kit like this one.
Foot rest for Better Posture
Another one for better posture! We are clearly very passionate about the topic.
Putting your feet up on a footrest relieves pressure from your joints and allows you to sit for long hours without getting that uncomfortable pins and needles sensation in your legs. Anyone receiving this gift will thank you later.
Sleek Mouse with RGB Lights
Most artists have a mouse already, what makes this so special? It lights up! The mouse has customizable RGB backlights that will make even the most boring tasks a little more fun.
Calibrate your Monitor to Perfection
Seeing an accurate color on your monitor(s) is so important for digital artists. If you don’t feel like splurging on a certified color-accurate monitor, this handy tool will get the job done. Fire up the app, place the SpyderX Pro on your screen and wait for the magic to happen.
Inspirational: The War of Art
Something every creative person should read… This uber-popular book by Steven Pressfield talks about the mental blocks creatives face, an action plan how to overcome the obstacles of ambition and in general how to succeed in the creative world. A life-changing must-read!
A digital artist’s first tablet! Artists don’t need expensive tools to create beautiful art. This Wacom Intuos Small is the perfect starter tablet for anyone looking to get into digital art.
Perfect Screen Tablet
This HUION Kamvas 24 is the dream tablet for anyone looking to get serious about digital art. With its 24″ HD screen and super responsive pen, it feels like traditional art, but better. The ultimate splurge gift for digital artists.
“All-in-one tablet” for Art on the Go
In our Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Digital Painting, we talked about the different tablets artists can go for, and we got a lot of questions about the “all-in-one” tablet. Is it good enough for pros? Who do you recommend it to?
The answer is: It depends on the artist!
All-in-one tablets like this 2022 Apple 10.9-inch iPad are perfect for artists who like to draw away from home and don’t want to drag a tablet and a laptop with them everywhere they go. These tablets are on the pricey side, but they are powerful enough to create professional-level artwork.
