Erasers (with quotes)

Maybe it’s the soft lighting in these photos, but these erasers seem like the perfect small gift for anyone that still uses pencil and paper.

Fabriano Artist’s Journal

Does this slightly crinkled journal elicit any cravings to pick up a pencil and draw? Or perhaps writing down your daily thoughts is more your style? Either way the colorful pages might tempt you to spend a bit more time with a pen or pencil rather than your keyboard.

Parafernalia Falter 2D Designer Pen

Otherwise known as ‘the pen that you make’, this pen is handmade out of industrial steel. The snap apart template includes elements to make a ball point pen, stand and mini ruler. Now, you ask, why in the world would you pay $40 for a pen that you have to make when there’s a dozen perfectly good bic pens at your disposal? Good question. For the tinkering, I suppose, or for the novelty. I found more pics and info at Visual Streak, if you’re interested.

Storyboard Book

So the Storyboard Book won’t win any awards for originality. Moleskine has been making their own pocket storyboard notebook for a while now. But what the Storyboard Book lacks, it sure makes up for it with presentation. Because, well, just look at those graphics and bright yellow cover! Who would pick a plain black notebook over this one?

A lightweight, portable, and durable sketchbook for storyboarding, sketching, listmaking, visualization, plans, doodles, and just about anything else. The idea is simple: a frame for the action and space for notes, story, dialog, stage directions, enemies lists, etc. The Storyboard Book is designed to be used as a personal sketchbook, but also sized to be handy for project notes and ideas.

$10.00 for a 3 pack, $15.00 for 5.

Moleskine Colour A Month Daily Planner Box Set

T minus 24 hours until the official gift unwrapping begins, so if you’re still rushing around like a chicken with its head cut off, maybe snap some of these up from your local bookstore and call it a day. Moleskines are great, and despite the mixed reviews on this set, they’re pretty much the perfect gift for artists and note takers, or just someone that always seems unorganized (don’t say that to their face though).

Dot Grid Book

I swear by my graph paper composition notebooks for all my sketches, brainstorming and notetaking. I must admit that I think I’m ready for a change after seeing Behance’s Dot Grid Book.

Favored by free-thinking graphic designers among other creative professionals, Behance’s Dot Grid was developed as an alternative to traditional lines and boxes. The light geometric dot matrix serves as a subtle guide for your notations and sketches. The Dot Grid Book’s cover is a unique suede-to-the-touch hard cover. The pages are made of 80lb Premium Blend paper with a subtle texture (30% post-consumer recycled), double perforated, and three-hole punched between both perforations for maximum flexibility.

COVERS: Semi-Hard Suede-touch Cover
SIZE: 9″ x 10.5″
PAPER: 80lb Premium Blend
PAGES: 50
BINDING: Double spiral (black)
