Buying gifts for creative people can be difficult. We should know, because every year we have to endure the ‘oh thanks I love it’ lie. Every Christmas. Every birthday. EVERY Year.
Okay, before sounding too ungrateful, we just thought that by putting a post together with some gift ideas, maybe we could try and stop this happening. If we can save just one person from another pair of socks, we’ll be satisfied.
So here goes our list, complete with links to the best places to purchase them.
