How To Buy A Better Gift
Finding great gifts isn't easy in 2023. AI-written descriptions, identical-looking "dupes" of popular products, and anonymous Amazon sellers have made the holiday shopping season into a minefield.
To buy a better gift, buy it from real people. You don't have to buy it here. Choose a retailer with a physical address and their own product photography. Choose a manufacturer that actually makes things and doesn't just order them from cheap contractors. These signals are how you can tell the real from the fake.
The eight real people at St. Louis Art Supply are here to make it easier for you. We test and photograph every product, and we ship every package with care from our own warehouse. What you see is what you get.
Looking for something simple? Here are 12 fantastic, in-stock gifts under $75. We're updating this list throughout the holiday season, since some things will sell out and new items are always arriving.
