Gift Guide 2014: The Creative Type

How do you find creative gifts for creatives? Says Lindsay Nehls, co-owner of Rock Paper Scissors: “Look for something unique! Everyone who is ‘the artsy one in the family’ has probably faked a smile and an ‘Oh thanks Grandma, I looove it’ when they get another ‘value set’ of crappy art supplies they’ll never use. Try a unique project kit, workshops or classes, or a gift card to an art supply store.”
