2019 Holiday Gift Guide

We thought we’d throw together a fool-proof list of great gift ideas! We have most of your gift-giving bases covered this year thanks to our new, easily accessible retail store in Irondale! Let’s get started, shall we?



Fluid and beautiful draped scarves are the perfect way to wear art on the go. They are soft and sheer, which makes them wearable in the fall, winter, AND spring!

These scarves feature the artwork of SBTT artist, John Miller. His work has been collected by Studio supporters for years! This is a great way to own and show off your own John Miller.

2. Tote Bags


We have brand new tote bags this year! Two, in fact. We have Monika Woody’s colorful circles and Art Horton’s grey scale dots to choose from.

Both Monika and Art have been artists at the Studio for about 25 years. They have also both shown at fine galleries and have sold work through out the country.

Each tote design is printed vibrantly on canvas-textured polyester. Which means they’re easy to care for. Just throw it in the washer and dryer and it’s ready to go again!

Our totes feature black or yellow cotton webbed 1” straps. Long enough to carry comfortably on your shoulder.

These makes gifts. For yourself or someone on your list.

3. Super Dog Socks


We dare you not to fall in love with these playful (but still classy) knitted socks featuring Michael Hall’s classic Super Dog character design.

They are extremely comfortable high quality knitted cotton, made in the USA! The bottoms of these one-size- fits-most socks display the Studio By The Tracks logo.

These make ideal stocking stuffers and Dirty Santa gifts!

4. Original Framed Artwork

Starting at $20.00

Studio By The Tracks serves 45+ adult artists with autism spectrum disorders each week. And each week these artists create work that deserves a fully framed presentation.

You won’t find pieces of art like these anywhere else.

Don’t forget! When you buy original artwork, the artist receives a 60% commission. These are the kinds of gifts that will make anyone happy.

5. Original Un-Framed Artwork

Starting at $10.00

We have a large selection of un-framed work from our artists. So if you need a gift that’s easy to travel with, or if you’re not sure about your recipient’s taste in frames, these are perfect.

The selection is huge – so you’re sure to find the right piece. And since they start off at a low price-point, you’re sure to find the right dollar amount too.

6. Field Note Books


Everyone loves a field notebook. These 6.5×3”, 24 page, unlined field notebook feature a wrap-around art piece by Monika Woody.

The affordable price makes them an easy add-on to other gifts from the Studio that you may be giving this year. Or if you need a low cost gift to give multiple people in your family or office, these are great for everyone!

7. Handmade and Hand-Glazed Ceramics

Starting at $12.00

Our ceramics studio is a big part of our programming at the Studio. Our artists have access to clay, glazes, and our in-house kiln enabling them to create 3d works. Hand glazed dinner plates, snack bowls, and serving platters make for one-of-a-kind gifts full of cheer.

A lot of our supporters are already familiar with Melvin Roscoe’s “Praise The Lard” platters and Michael Hall’s Father Christmas plates. We have those classics in addition to a lot of new exciting ceramic treasures.

One crowd favorites that has become a go-to gift is our series of hand built ceramic angels. They’re refined enough for a mantel-scape, while still being unique enough to stop your dinner guests in their tracks.

8. Tee Shirts


We have six designs to choose from! All of our shirts feature a bold image created by an artist at Studio By The Tracks on the front, and a small SBTT logo on the back. Some are funny, some are cute, and some are just plain cool! We carry sizes ranging from small to XXL. So a good fit is guaranteed.

9. The Ten Commandments of Coffee Mug


Do you have someone on your list that takes their coffee VERY seriously? Then they will love the humor of one of Melvin Roscoe’s “10 Commandments of Coffee” mugs to sip from every morning.

Thy shall give this to their favorite coffee lover!

10. Virtual or Physical Gift Cards

Ok – here’s a gift giving pro-tip: pick out a special small gift (like any that we’ve listed here) and really wow the person your giving to with a gift card. That way, you’re relieved of the pressure that comes with picking out the perfect thing, and they get to come see and explore our Studio Store themselves! Trust us – shopping is half of the fun.

So you can put together a small package that packs a big punch. And all for a great cause.
