Dash of Inspiration: Best Gifts for the Creative 2015

December 21, 2015


I found some fun lists that I wanted to share, just in case you need some last minute gifts for yourself or creatives on your list this year.

For Photographers

SpiderHolster Black Widow Spider Camera Holster – what a great stocking stuffer idea! Perfect for a little ‘hands-free’ time while out on a shoot.


Cap Buckle CB200BE Lens Cap Holder – I love this idea, a place to keep that lens cap when you’re out shooting. Pockets work, but this is perfect!

Foldio 2 – 15″ Folding Portable Lightbox Studio – I have a larger version of this and they are a wonderful accessory for the greeting card photographer.


Portable 2-TB Passport Drives – These are amazing, I can personally recommend any of the Western Digital external drives for durability and longevity.

For All Creatives

WOW, this is something many would dream about having! Check out ‘iSketchnote’


Daylight Smart R10 Rechargeable Desk Lamp – No matter what type of medium you use, from digital artist to watercolor painting, you should be creating in what’s referred to as daylight spectrum to ensure your colors render true. This portable lamp can be charged via USB, battery or electricity, making it portable so you can have your light and paint too!


Koh-I-Noor Lead Holder Blk W/Gold Clip – Makes a beautiful gift for any artist who doodles, sketches or draws.


Blick Studio Brush Markers – Perfect for the Graphic Designer. Various sets are available and who wouldn’t want them ALL?

24532-group-11-2ww-mSargent Art Supreme Series Pencil Set – this set includes five types of art pencils, making this a creatives dream. Who knows what you’ll be inspired to create with this awesome set?



Treat yourself, it will inspire you and if you don’t do that, then plead with your personal Santa connection!

Happy Holidays, everyone!

Don’t forget to ENTER Your Best of 2015 card design in the last Dash of Inspiration Challenge of the year! Deadline is the 28th of December.

ENTER – Remember this challenge there are 5 Honorable Mentions and a Best of the 2015 Winner!
