4 Interesting Watercolor Finds that Your Artsy Friends Would Love

You still have time to craft gifts and go Christmas shopping


This year, we saw the rise of creative hobbies like coloring and calligraphy. If you have friends who truly enjoy and appreciate these fun pastimes, you can give them cute items aside from coloring and art materials and charming framed prints!

If you're near the Katipunan area, you may want to pass by Common Room PH to score pretty cards and wrapping paper from Swathe. The designs are made by talented Pinoy artist and interior designer Mayang Frigillana. To make your shopping easier, here are some picks to consider: 

Garden stationery set

Giving out handwritten letters is still the best way to personally say “thank you” to a loved one. Check out this charming garden style stationery–complete with floral envelopes.

Lily wrapping paper

You can use this pretty paper to wrap your well-thought-out presents! If your friend loves to display charming finds at home, you can give the wrapper as is and he or she can have it framed and used as wall art.

Succulent wrapping paper

For your friend who can't seem to get enough of his or her mini garden, a succulent wrapping paper would be perfect! The design is so lovely that you would want to have a couple more pieces of this paper for yourself! You can also use it as wall art in your bedroom or home office.

Wreath card

Spread the holiday cheer by giving away simple yet heartwarming cards to your friends and loved ones. You can also frame these and display one or two on top of your side table.
