TheWorks is really good when it comes to art supplies, they sell paints, canvasses, brushes and other extras too.

You should pop in store once they reopen and see what they have.

Ah I live in Poland so would need to be online. Tbh I've just got a work bonus and am only buying for her this year so if theres more 'luxury' items that would be beneficial I'm up for buying them.

An easel? Maybe some vouchers for Cass Art or another an indie/small chain art shop if you're really not sure (are you in the UK?)

Yo!

It depends on what she likes to use. Oil paints? Acrylics? We always work our way through things so need materials. Could check out- https://www.jacksonsart.com/ for ideas.

Hobbycraft should have some paints, easels and artist equipment online but I'm unsure whether they post to Poland.

I could do with some general advice on what to get my 13yo son. He will get some clothes but that's a pretty impersonal gift. He doesn't really need any new tech to speak of and he doesn't want any new Xbox games because gamepass takes care of that.

I'd love to surprise him with something nice. I already ordered him a new card wars set and I was thinking of getting him a decent football to use once the tiers go down a bit.

I should be kinda glad he's not a very materialistic kid but it does make it hard sometimes on gifts. It also doesnt help that it was his birthday last week.

My main idea was perhaps a good watch but I'm not sure he will wear it unless I spent a fortune on a good smartwatch.

Theres not something you can get him which harkens back to something you used to do togther when he was younger is there?

One of the presents I have got my daughter this year is a complete Playstation One copy of Monster Rancher because we used to play it a lot when she was like between 5 and 9. Her mother stole it and sold it along with other things... So I decided to buy her a new copy now as its something Id always thought id get round to getting her but was waiting for an OK price, in the end I have paid more than I wanted to but really wanted to get it her as now shes 18 I think she would really appreciate it as its a great blast from the past.

https://www.youtube.com/user/kerr9000 for my YouTube channel. where you can find my Horror House and GamesRoom Reviews[b]I can also be found as kerr9000 on the Xbox, and My Instagram is kerr9000gamesroom and its mostly photos of old games and horror movies.

I got a Swiss army knife with my name engraved on it when I was 13 and I still use it today (I'm 36). Got my boyfriend one a few years back as well and he always has it on him. I think they're a pretty good gift, just generally useful, Victorinox is the classic make.
