When life gets too noisy, I have to find a quiet place to relax. My favorite ways to relieve stress include exercise and creative activities. Coloring is a relaxing activity anyone can do. If I only have few minutes, I grab gel pens and enjoy coloring my stress away in my bullet journal or adult coloring books.
Gel pens are so much fun to use in all sorts of creative projects. I especially love hand lettering and coloring with Gel pens. The colored glitter gel ink dries to a sparkle on paper.
A gel pens set is a great gift idea, especially now that so many people are getting into the adult coloring book trend, journaling, and day planning. A few of my favorite adult coloring books are:
Gel pens are also perfect for creating beautiful journal pages and color coding day planners. I like to use gel pens to sign holiday cards and in my coloring books. I treat myself to new pens on my birthday. I love to add to my collection. I started with classic colors and went from there to add pastels and glitter colors.
My kids love gel pens, too. We spend time coloring together, especially on cold or rainy days when we are stuck inside the house. Most gel pen sets are budget-friendly. which makes it easier for us to build a nice collection of colors.
Gift Idea: Pair Gel pens with an adult coloring book.
Do you know someone who would like a creative outlet for relaxation? Give them a set of gel pens with a coloring book. Feel free to use my free printable Thank You gift tags below. We gifted these for Teacher Appreciation Day.
There are two gift label versions with the same “Thank you for COLORING my life” design. One set of labels is designed for printing on Avery scalloped edge labels and the other set works with Avery 2-inch round labels. If you don’t have printable labels, you can print the labels file on white card stock, cut the labels out and use glue or tape to attach them to your gift.
