    So my SO is an awesome artist and loves to draw / paint etc, but she says she doesn't paint much because of the cost. I want to get her a decent ($150 or so?) set of brushes / paints etc for x-mas / her birthday (3 days apart).

    Any ideas? I know this is kinda vague, but I know nothing of the subject and I'd rather not ask her about it... I want it to be a total surprise. Thanks OT.

    You could always bring it up in casual conversation and try to get some ideas from her that way. Don't mention Christmas, just somehow let it slip into any old conversation.

    If she is a serious artist then you will need to get individual brushes and paints and not the sets.

    And by serious artist I don't mean any disrespect, but if she is serious in painting from the past then she wouldn't use the sets you buy she would be getting her own brushes and paints dependant upon how she paints.

    My wife paints (her work is all over this site) and we get all of her stuff from a local Dick Blick but they also have online ordering.

    You can also get the brushes and specific paints she need to get started pretty easy with $150.
