Are you searching for some coloring gifts for adults that can top those amazing books, many of which the enthusiast could have stacks of already? I know you may be thinking how can I outdo that, am I right?
Well, surprisingly enough, coloring pages and books are giving way to some unique and innovative other products. Simple pages are expanding into other things you may have never expected and that is where you, the gift giver, come in.
If you want to make that special occasion more special take a look at what I have found!

Drink Coasters To Color
Wow, did you know that now there is a line of actual beverage coasters that you can color to your liking? Mandalas floral patterns, and zentangles are getting a fresh new life in the form of actual coasters!
You’ll receive a set of 4 and some like this one here, have their own caddy. This set here has birds and plant scenes on it but there are some with detailed patterns.
Colorable Drink Tumblers
Now travel tumblers and to go cups can be made to color too! The perfect gift for the traveler or adult coloring fan on the go.
There are also ceramic mugs that you can color in as well! For both types, you actually “bake” the design in your home conventional oven to set your finished work – wow, isn’t that a dope idea? In some cases, the markers are sold separately but there are a few sets that do include them too as a nice bonus.
The marker ink is removable so if you make an “oopsie” you can clean it off and start over before committing and baking in the oven.
You’re going to want to top this off with a set of food-safe markers, too to complete the ensemble if you choose the mug by itself.
Adult Coloring Canvas
If you really want something that will grace the home and get compliments now there are actual adult coloring canvases with intricate pre-outlined designs. There are a range of sizes and designs to bring out the true artist in you.
Even if you think you don’t have a talented bone in your body you’ll soon see how relaxing and fun it can be to produce your own wall art with these pre-made designs!
I love this one here with birds and botanical garden flourishes…it has a lot of detail in it so if you have a wide selection of pen colors you could make this something beautiful. Later on you could frame it, or just let it hang as is.
Tired of the boring old selection of vinyl placements? Why not try coloring your own? The next family gathering or dinner party is going to be something special when you set the table with these! They kind of remind me a little of those “activity” placemats for kids to keep them busy – only with a more adult coloring makeover.
When you’re done having fun coloring in the designs, I think you could also protect them (as well as reinforce them to make them sturdier) with something like vinyl in case they should get spilled on.
Coloring Book Caddy
This is not something to color – but it made the list because any adult coloring enthusiast should have something to organize all their books and tools. Out of the ones I saw, I chose this one because of its design – it’s got an awesome design on the front cover (there are two other designs in addition to this one ).
On one side is a pocket to keep your book and on the other side are loops to keep your colored pencils or pens in (it holds a total of 24, and 2 coloring books.) A brilliant organizer idea and sure to be appreciated!
Adult Coloring Bookmarks
Is the adult coloring enthusiast in your life also an avid bookworm or fan of novels? These color-it-yourself bookmarks are a dynamite stocking stuffer or a nice added extra to drop in gift bags.
Just like the books themselves, there are a wide range of different patterns and themes to choose from, such as floral patterns, Bible verses, mandalas and inspirational quotes.
There are many different patterns included too, and when you finish coloring them, just cut them out for use. Or you could take it up a notch and embellish them with a tassel, don’t stop there! These to the right have a selection of four different themes to match your mood and provide relaxing inspiration.
Pillowcases and Pillows!
This! Wow…this list just keeps getting more interesting doesn’t it? A white throw pillow with a pre-done design that you can color in! When they are decked out in color they are going to make a big splash in the living room, on the sofa, easy chair or bed – so get ready for compliments:)
A great choice for adults and kids alike who love coloring. This set here is a great choice as it already comes with a nice marker set too. Talk about a conversation starter – everybody will want to know where you got such pretty pillows.
3D Coloring Puzzle
Now this one would be GREAT for kids as well as adults too – these unique craft kits consist of model 3D animals that you can color in and later on assemble to proudly display. Check it out – there’s LOTS of different objects available – I saw an Eiffel Tower, airplane, house and windmill as well as the cute animals!
Small Coloring Card Set with Markers
If you live by the “good things come in little packages” credo you will love this card set that includes a pristine alcohol based marker set as well. You can choose from among four themes including mandalas and sweet treats – each little card you finish can be used to supplement an art project like a handmade greeting card.
Or you could frame them and hang them in places where you need petite art – that would be too cute. If you scrapbook a lot these would be ideal to use as journaling cards – lots of possibilities here!
They are made from real cardstock and the markers included are a brand that gets a lot of rave reviews for their color-blending abilities. So the recipient will be turning out real art with a little practice – a superb gift idea!
Now you can color your own greeting cards! If you ever feel card design-challenged, these cards are the standard size, have already included envelopes, too. What a thoughtful way of showing appreciation or support with a handmade card that you colored yourself!
This set to the right is a really good choice as it has intricate designs making it an ideal coloring gift for adults, plus it has a set of colored pencils that come with it too!
Well, that’s our coloring gift lineup! I hope you enjoyed it…I never thought there were this many mediums for self-expression out there, did you?
There you have it…going above and beyond “the book” – (the coloring book that is 🙂 Happy shopping!
