“Creativity is contagious, pass it on”, Albert Einstein said. It’s true for sure. Just think of all the creative people in your life and how they share their infectious enthusiasm for new thoughts, crazy ideas and consuming passions with you.

Whether they’re writers, painters, photographers, people who love to cook or fanatic crafters, it always helps to remember that creative people love making new things; they have an appetite for curiosity and can spot beauty in the most unusual things. So gifts that celebrate or further their passion, gifts that inspire them are always welcome. Here are a few creative gift ideas to get you started.
