I hope a certain fabulously creative 14-year-old isn't reading this because it this is pretty much what I'm giving her for Chanumas. If you have one that you're buying for, here's what to grab:

1. Sharpie Brush Tip Fabric Markers, Amazon, $12.42
I've found these sold singly at Target from time to time.

2. Hand & Body Art Tattoo Pens, ASOS, $10.49
Way cooler than ballpoint... right? I think so.

3. Hair Chalk, Urban Outfitters, $10
Or just do what I did and buy a nice set of soft chalk pastels from your local art store, as recommended by this tutorial from The Beauty Department. Then they own a set of pastels, too!

4. Puff Paint, Amazon, $8.79
Last year I gave the then-13-year-old a pack, saying, "I figured that since puff paint was cool when I was your age, it's probably come around again." She replied, "Yep!"

5. Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens, Target, $5.49
At my local Target these were on sale and buy-2-get-1-free.

6. Printable Temporary Tattoo Paper, Amazon, $6.49

8. Zalan Zink Sunscreen Kit, Urban Outfitters, $12

9. Rhinestone Nail Art Kit, Forever 21, $6.95
This, on the other hand, I understand all too well.

10. A beautiful book by an artist you think they would like, prices vary
The 14-year-old loves painting color fields so I thought she might enjoy some Rothko magic.

Do you have any gift recommendations for creative older kids? If you can swing it, taking them to a museum would be an amazing gift, as would taking them to an art supply store and handing them cash.
