Give the gift of Zentangle this holiday season

This weekend officially launches the holiday season in the U.S. and this is a good time to remind you that there are wonderful Zentangle-related items available for your gift-giving.

And the best thing? You don’t even have to get out of your pj’s to shop for them. Avoid crowds, save time, save gas, save money.

On second thought, maybe that’s not the best thing. The best thing is that you can introduce friends and loved ones, regardless of their age, to a relaxing, amazing art form that will ignite their creativity for a lifetime of pleasure. Zentangle® is a gift that keeps giving.

The Official Zentangle Kit

Click to see The Official Zentangle KitThe official kit is an entire workshop in a box – everything folks need to get started with Zentangle. The official kit is what hooked me on Zentangle and I believe it is one of the best bargains around.

Because I think so highly of it, I’ve written quite a bit about it on this page in my store on TanglePatterns (or go to the right end of the menu bar at the top of the page) so I won’t say much more here. Except that this is a wonderful gift for anyone of just about any age.

And if you don’t have one, treat yourself.

Zentangle Books

Now really, if you have the Zentangle Kit and TanglePatterns.com what more do you want? 😉

Kidding aside, for truly economical gifts that will give endless hours of enjoyment and creative inspiration for the dollar, consider giving one of the many Zentangle-inspired books from CZT® Suzanne McNeill’s publishing company and available from Amazon.

Suzanne’s books take Zentangle from fine art into the realm of crafts and cover many areas of interest: stamping, scrapbooking, stenciling, journaling, jewelry-making, polymer clay, ATCs, quilting and other fabric arts, and adding other types of media to Zentangle-related crafts. Introduce your crafting friends to a new passion!

And of course there are CZT® Sandy Steen Bartholomew’s very popular Totally Tangled, and Yoga For Your Brain with lots of fun patterns to learn and excellent tips for those of us who aren’t experienced artists.

There are more Zentangle-related books than I’ve mentioned here and you can get all of them from Amazon, often with free shipping. See the BOOK REVIEWS tab at the top of the page for reviews of all of them.

Make your shopping simple and elegant! Give the gift of Zentangle this holiday season. And how about including a note with your gift that TanglePatterns.com is the place to come for more tangles.

Here are all of the currently available Zentangle books:

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H

    Anyone know how long is the DVD from the kit? Thanks. Susan

    • Linda Farmer

      Good question, Susan. And thanks for the prompt to watch it again! Lovely way to start the day …

      The kit’s DVD is almost 29 minutes long and is without audio except for Rick’s soothing flute music as background to Maria’s drawing. It begins with Maria demonstrating the simple steps to the Zentangle ceremony and then creating 3 completely different Zentangles as you learn how to draw 18 tangles – quite a few of which are not published online so this is the only place to see them. She shades each tile when complete. A few of the drawing segments have fast forward bits once you get the idea of how to draw a particular tangle. Each tangle is identified by screen titles as Maria begins to draw them.

    Hi Linda, thanks for the response. My 12 yo and I have many of the books and we loved the demo class here in Houston,TX at TXArt supply. This will make a great Christmas gift. Sorry if the post went on twice. I was not sure if the first one had made it. Susan

  • Deb

    I just received the Zentangle 6 book for an early Christmas present and I’m loving it! Now all I need is the original Zentangle kit! (hoping Santa got my letter LOL)

  • Andrea

    Now all we need is some zentangle wrapping paper to wrap it all up with!! 😉
