Hand Lettering Practice sheets
If your recipient is just getting started, then getting them some hand lettering practice sheets is a must hand lettering gift idea. You’re also in a great place to get some for absolutely free!

Etsy is also a great place to find some practice sheets. I personally have Fearless Lettering from Ensign Insights that I LOVE! I have the physical copy that she no longer sells, but the digital version is the same!
Hand Lettering Books
I love just flipping through books related to hand lettering! Here are a few of my favorites:

- Hand Lettering for Relaxation
- The Ultimate Guide to Modern Calligraphy
- Adventures in Hand Lettering
- Lettering Alphabets and Artwork
Extra Smooth HP Printer paper 32
This is the printer paper I recommend using for any practice sheets you print out, or for just practicing in general. Regular printer paper can wreak havoc on brush pen tips, but this Premium HP 32 Paper is very smooth and easy on the tips.
This marker paper is also great for brush pens and easy on the tips. It’s extra smooth and it’s also semi translucent which makes it great for tracing!
This is my absolute favorite paper hands down, for finished pieces. It’s thick like cardstock, but it’s extra smooth for markers. It even works great for blending with water based inks.
These come in grid or dotted and are great for practicing with!
