Where to buy adult colouring books for Christmas online

Information verified correct on October 27th, 2016

Adult colouring books: they’re a thing. They are also one hot buy for Christmas. Gifting a colouring book this year? It's a no brainer, really.

The latest trend to hit the bookshelves is adult colouring books and it's one of the biggest things flying off shelves as Christmas presents this year. Why not? There are so many out there you're bound to find a themed one dedicated to your giftees interests. Harry Potter fan? There's a colouring book for that. How about Ryan Gosling? Yup, him too.

We’re not kidding when we say that they’re currently enjoying positions on bestseller lists (at the time of writing, five of the top ten bestsellers from The Book Depository are adult colouring books). Safe to say your friend is eyeing at least one of them.

So what exactly is an “adult” colouring book? They’re detailed colour-me-ins which will not only throw you back into childhood, but will help you destress and tap into your artistic side.

What’s the big deal?

The adult colouring book concept is being promoted with the notion that they’re good for you. Health-wise, they’re said to help relieve stress, being a cathartic and meditative task that enables the artist within to focus on the single, repetitive task of filling in the lines on the page. Whatever. We think they're just fun. So we’ve rounded up our favourite adult colouring books on the market for you to play with, and showed you where to buy them. Before you get started, here are some inspirational Pinterest pics to get you excited about colouring in. Not that you aren’t already, we suspect.

    I want to buy an adult colouring book and pencils or pens whatever you use as a kit, is there such a thing fro an Aussie web site?

      Hi Linda,

      Thanks for your question.

      Most colouring books don’t come accompanied with pencil packs. The Dream Catcher series occasionally sells a combo pack for their books – you can find one for sale on eBay here or on Amazon here if you prefer.

      Booktopia is also about to release a Marabout series of colouring books that come with a set of pencils – you can browse the series here .

      I hope this has helped,
