Old Jul 14th, 2008, 02:33 PM        Gifts for an Artist
Ok, my husband is a graphic artist.
Our anniversary is coming up.
I already bought him a Wacom Bamboo Tablet, but i'd like to get him something else too.
Are there any other little tools like that or computer acessories that a professional graphic artist might enjoy?

A new high-resolution monitor? You can get some great 24" 1920x1200 screens for a somewhat reasonable price these days.

I'd go with him to look at some in a best buy to see what brand he seems to like, and then decide on a size and all, and then go buy it from online, since stores are too expensive. Make sure he's involved, since he'll be using it for so much time and looking at it daily.

Most guys don't want surprises, they want cool bad ass shit. The best surprise is waking up to a blowjob.

Then think non practical. You're thinking along the lines of buying something for an artist, he wont be surprised if you get him something he wants (still get the monitor though). Do you guys have a motorcycle yet?

He always likes practical gifts, that's why I was thinking of something related to his work.
As far as motorcycles? I don't think he'd ever get on one, he's worried about me riding a scooter around our tiny little town. Hahaha.

I'm sure the next time you want to spam us with your contest it will be about time for his birthday again, so it's all good.
