I received this product in exchange for an honest review.  All thoughts are my own.

I never enjoyed coloring that much as a kid.  It was more as a pre-teen and teenager that I could understand the allure of a sharp box of crayons and coloring book.  Of course, the ability to concentrate enough to stay within the lines helped me appreciate this activity!

I’m so glad as an adult to see coloring being marketed to us, and not just kids.  It really is soothing and helps relax me.  It’s something just about anybody can do, with so many different levels of tools.  It costs very little to pick up a box of colored pencils and a book and get started.

When I was offered the chance to try the Complete Adult Coloring Book Kit by Life in Coloring, available on Amazon.com.  This is not just an adult coloring book, but also a whole padded leather folder with high-grade pencils.  It really adds a luxury feel to the whole activity.

I have to say, I think I liked the leather folder the best.  It discreetly transports your activity so not everybody can see what you’re doing.  It also protects your finished work.  Finally, it allows the pages to lay more flat when open, although that’s more due to the style of “book” that is supplied.  There is a flap underneath to enable you to store a traditional coloring book.  Also included is a small pouch, which is attached by hook-and-loop and therefore removable.  Finally, there’s a nice magnetic clasp to keep your folder closed.

The pencils are definitely a step above your usual brands for kids.  I haven’t bought any higher-end ones yet but I’m sure these compare.  They sharpened nicely with the included sharpener (in the pouch).  They are creamier than a traditional dry pencil, but then crumble a bit more easily.  You receive 12 different colors with this set; a nice variety, but a bit limiting, in my opinion.

Finally, there’s the book itself: the Mindfulness Adult Coloring Book.  There’s a range of different designs that’s sure to suit your every whim or coloring mood.  I saw all different designs, from animals to angular shapes to more of a mandala type.  I chose this one that featured triangles and circles.

I like the ones with smaller areas like this so I can do a bit at a time and still feel accomplished.  I’m not sure how this book works with markers but since it’s single-sided, I think you would be okay if you put a piece of paper under the the one you were working on to prevent bleed-through.

In all, I think the Complete Adult Coloring Book Kit by Life in Coloring would make a wonderful gift for many in your life.  It elevates coloring to a new level and is a present that many would be happy to receive.
