5 Best Gifts For Potters (They Will Love)

It can be difficult to find unique gifts for potters.

Every time you search, only a few pretty useless ideas come up and a lot of them relate to Harry Potter as opposed to pottery anyway…

The potter in your life already has so many mugs they can barely close the cupboard door and you’re not sure you know enough about tools to buy them something useful.

This list has got your back.

Buying a unique gift for a potter doesn’t have to take loads of research or be really expensive either.

These 5 options are affordable but make really special gifts that will be long remembered.

Unique Gifts For Potters

1. Pottery Gift Tshirt for Ceramics Artist Throw Things

This T-shirt, imprinted with the words “Caution. I’ve been known to throw things” makes a really funny and thoughtful gift for a potter.

It comes in a range of sizes for both men and women as well as in a number of colors that are all equally attractive. I wear this T shirt to potter around the house in (literally) and find it super comfortable and soft.

At less than $15, this is a great option if you want a gift that’s looks great and allows the recipient to show their passion for pottery to the world!

2. Clay: Contemporary Ceramic Artisans

“Clay: contemporary ceramic artisans” is a book that any pottery lover would be proud to display in their workshop or on their shelves.

Filled with an analysis of the major pottery styles from the last few decades, it is sure to inspire. At around $38, it is a little expensive, but it’s completely worth it because it is a hardback book that is quite rare to find. The book also contains a great number of high-quality images.  

This, overall, makes a lovely gift that potters can refer back to throughout their lives as they explore different ideas and techniques.

3. TINTON LIFE 16PCS Wooden Clay Pottery Stamp

This set of beautiful stamps allow potters to create embellishments on their work.

It contains 16 easy to use stamps, contained in a lovely wooden box, with designs including a tree and an elephant. Most potters are unlikely to already own these as they aren’t part of the main pottery tools usually owned. What’s more, any potter would certainly appreciate receiving these as a gift as it gives them the chance to try out something new!

All of the designs are really intricate too and can be used to create interesting textures as well as patterns.

4. GW Pottery Handmade Stoneware Berry Bowl/Colander, Blue

Now this is a piece of pottery that your recipient won’t already own a million of!

This beautiful blue colander, handmade and individually glazed by a potter with over 40 years of experience, is something that any potter would love to receive. It has a unique design, with the handle at one side and holes at the other, but it functions really well and is easy to use.

This would make a great gift to mark a special occasion as this is something that will definitely be treasured for years to come!

5. Shea Moisture African Wild Water Mint Detox & Stimulate Hand & Body Scrub

Potters spend so long working clay with their hands that it can sometimes become hard to tell where the clay ends and their hands begin!

This hand scrub gently exfoliates worked hands and rejuvenates the skin. It has lovely natural ingredients with great benefits to them and it also smells amazing. This is the perfect treatment after a long day in the pottery workshop. The packaging is really nice, with a high-end feel and a simple design that suits both men and women.

Any potter would definitely appreciate receiving this gift.
