Depending on how much you plan to spend - Just a thought. Check with a local community college/university and speak to the art professor. He may be able to give her a few lessons? Or, find a local artist that would advise her and give her some tips. A hands-on gift may be extra special, rather than giving her art supplies, etc.

You can also look around your community for art shows. Some allow citizen entries, for free or little cost. She'd probably be proud and thrilled to see her piece in the show.

Think outside the box. Will encourage her creativity.

Depending on the type of art she does, good quality materials are always welcome. If she is enrolled in art classes or something like that, you might speak to her or to someone else in the class to see what they are using. If she is just someone who works on her own, often she will not have had access to good quality art supplies. If that is the case, you might go to an art store, not a big chain like Michaels, but to a store where art students purchase their materials.


Colours is a store here in Canada. Cheap Joes is an online store (also a store, but I forgotten the state). Inquire at the store (or search online) for artist quality supplies. For example, a lovely hardcover sketchbook is a wonderful gift. A set of artist quality drawing pencils, or solid graphite pencils, especially the ones such as 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B, the soft leaded ones. Good quality drawing paper. If she is into watercolor painting, watercolor paper or a watercolor sketch book. One wonderful brush for watercolor. A set of travel brushes from Cheap Joes.

It would be best if you know the type of art she likes to do, and then go to a store and discuss with a salesperson, as in a reputable store, this person will know art materials. Do not buy a set of watercolors or acrylic paints or something of that nature from a craft store or Walmart or someplace like that. A 19 year old should be working with good quality materials.

How about a gift certificate to an art store. Either near where she lives or online. She'll be able to buy what she really needs when she needs it.
