Below you'll discover 8 of the best gift ideas for moms who love to color.

1. Coloring Books

Coloring books aren't just a fun way to pass the time, they also help to lower stress levels.

This means they can help boost the mood, combat depression and focus the mind into the here and now. All moms get stressed from time to time so a coloring book would be perfect to give her.

There are so many different options on the market for coloring books: mandalas, flowers, fairies, landscapes, dogs, cats, animals, and even swearing.

2. Coloring Pencils and Pens

Of course, it's impossible to color without coloring pencils or pens. This may seem like a simple thing to give her, but you'll be surprised at the quality of pencils out there.

You'll find there are a lot of different types of coloring options to choose from. To help her create a stand-out effect, you might want to consider glitter pens or Sharpies.

In fact I got these to review and I like them!

Whatever your budget, you'll find the perfect coloring pencils and pens to match it.

3. Art Paper

Some people prefer to draw their own coloring pages and coloring them in herself. In this case, art paper would come in handy. Like the pencils, art paper comes in various qualities.

Before choosing the right paper, think about the type of coloring she prefers to do. Painting for example would require a thicker paper than pencil.

4. Coloring Wall Posters

Want to present her with a present that will blow her away? Coloring wall posters would do the trick. Available in numerous designs, they are basically wall pictures and murals that you can color anyway you like.

So it won't just satisfy her love of coloring, it will also give her a personalized gift that she can hang on the wall.

5. Storage Solutions

Once people start buying one coloring book, they will buy multiple coloring books. Storage containers would be appreciated.

You'll be able to help her to keep all of her coloring supplies neat and tidy with a stylish container. They come in all shapes, sizes, and designs so you should easily be able to find one that fits her personality.

Coloring enthusiasts like to color anywhere at any time – so why not opt for portable storage solutions?

6. Laptop Desk

Does she have little space to do her coloring? This space-saving flat stand gives her a solid surface to color on.


After use, it can easily be stored away until next time. There are quite a few to choose from, with some even offering a holder to store a cup of coffee.

7. Printer

A printer might not be an obvious present, but it expands her coloring options. There are such sites as Etsy that allow pictures to easily be downloaded from the internet and printed out ready to be colored.

There are many websites out there dedicated to coloring and a printer allows her to print off as many pictures as she wants.

8. Paints

Once her creativity kicks in she might want to expand her horizons into other art forms such as painting. Paints will really make her day.


You can buy large paint sets, though it's recommended you have a good idea of what type of painting she might like to do or get her a variety and let her decide.

These are just 8 great Mother's Day ideas for moms who love to color. If you want to give her an extra-special gift, why not buy a few things from the list above and pack them into a home-made basket?

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    Ive been coloring since I was 15 and into my adulthood. Its funny how now its this big thing. I have probably 50-60 books, lots of gel pens,regular markers,sharpies and pencils. Its my hobby/obsession/addiction. Lol! I have chronic pain and 17 yrs ago I hurt my back at work so I took up coloring again. It helps my pain and to relax. Is this colorbook yours? Those are some cool pens.
    Have a good weekend 🙂
