Friends with a girl who paints. Wanted to get her a gift for valentine's. I was thinking about a decent set of brushes or some such, but I don't really know anything about painting. Was hoping I could get a few recommendations or at least pointed in the right direction? Or other gift ideas are welcome too

Thanks for any help

She's getting me one, so I thought best to return the gesture

>she's getting me one

Well, still creepy but on her side

If she paints, she's going to know more about brushes than you, and probably already has brushes.
A gift card for art supplies is better, but less interesting?

She was telling me the other day that her sister went and did something with her brushes (Using them and leaving them out without cleaning them), so I know she's in need of a few
>>
If she's been painting for a while then she probably already has some sort of preference. Either just ask her or see what kind of painting she does and research a bit. You might get away with a basic set if she's not picky though.
>>
You're fucking up.

If someone is a hobbyist in something, never buy a gift for them in that hobby.
You'll fuck it up and they'll have to begrudgingly thank you for something they'll never use.

It's like your parents buying a Nintendo game like fucking Pro Bass Fishing or some shit.
They try but they don't get it.

Buy her something else.
Like, I don't know, a wonderful date or jewellery, or maybe a photographer or something.

Just don't buy her paint shit because you know less than she does, and if you want to purchase something, you'll do it wrong.
If you insist, ask her what she wants specifically, and buy that.
>>
like others said you have to ask her, there are so many types and nothing pisses me off more than paints/brushes that i don't like to use. it's all personal preference.

if you don't want to ask her try some other gift
