Have You Heard of Pencil Extenders?

You can buy just one or an entire set of pencil extenders. They’re reasonably priced little tools. They’re not just for children either.

Don’t Forget a Pencil Sharpener and an Eraser for Colored Pencils
When assembling a gift basket with adult coloring supplies, be sure to add a good pencil sharpener and an eraser. They’re inexpensive options. As long as the blades are good, sharpeners don’t vary much from one to the next. However, keep in mind that the erasers should be for color removal. It’s much more difficult to remove colored pencil than graphite. The eraser must be slightly abrasive. It won’t work if it isn’t. Regular varieties will ruin the paper before they remove the color. They’re a must-have when seeking ideas for a DIY adult coloring book gift bag fillers. After all, even the most careful artists make simple mistakes now and then.

High-quality coloring books for adults are made with premium paper, and they’re only printed on one side. These types of pages are suitable for framing when completed. If you’re still in need of adult coloring book gift basket ideas, how about adding a picture frame in addition to the other suggestions? The recipient will be able to frame a favorite design. The graphics in the aforementioned booklet are gorgeous enough to display.
Use an Eye-Catching Gift Bag, a Woven Basket, or a Plastic Crate
Keep in mind that you don’t have to use a woven basket when giving any collection of themed gifts. You can use a gift bag or a plastic crate. Do you want to use fancy crinkled paper instead of ordinary tissue paper? Fold colored cardstock or construction paper accordion-style. Clean out the basket of your shredder, unfold the paper, and run it through. Lightly crinkle it again by hand, and use it to line your gift basket, bag, or plastic crate. Add adult coloring books and accessories of your choice, and attach a coordinating bow and a homemade card. In keeping with the theme, go ahead and color the card yourself. No matter the occasion, it will become the signature of your thoughtful DIY gift.
