11 Best Adult Coloring Books for the Travel Obsessed

Adult coloring books are all the rage these days. I’ll admit when I first heard about them, I thought they were stupid. Then curiosity got the best of me, and when I saw the photos, I wanted to hop on the bandwagon. They’re so intricate and beautiful, and apparently also stress relieving. Who knew this childhood activity could be like art therapy for adults.

I mentioned to Jacob that we should try a coloring for one of our “C” Alphabet Dates but never followed through. I actually forgot about it until one day this baby arrived in the mail as Jacob’s surprise gift to me and a surprise date! He’s a pretty good guy, right?

That’s Mika’s face of disapproval. Have you ever wanted to see a grown man color? You’re welcome. Jacob used his good ol’ crayola colored pencils, and I had to bust out my fancy prismacolor markers. I thought it was an appropriate time to use them.

Of course, like any other ungrateful wife, I had to look and see if there was anything else better out there. That’s the maximizer in me at my worst. I did find a few that I liked better, but we’ll work on finishing the current one first before we move on. ;) Also, I know not all of you are cat people. If you’ve been looking into coloring books, here are some beautifully done ones.

P.S. Some of the font / design of the covers are really ugly, but the insides (what counts) are legit! If you’re looking for the bestsellers at the moment, I wrote them on the bottom of the post, too.

They say don’t get a child a coloring book, because you’ll box in their imagination. Now that we’re adults and set in our ways, these are great since our imagination is long gone! haha jk 

We’ve only done a couple pages each and we can’t decide whether it’s a great relaxing activity or if it’s exhausting. I go back and forth. The intricate designs take forever to color in, and sometimes I lose my patience. There is this nostalgic sense when I’m coloring, but I also get stressed out when I accidentally color outside of the lines. I get more joy when I give myself permission to draw through the lines! We’ll have to do a few more before we fully decide.

What do you guys think of the coloring book craze? Have you tried Zentangles? What other activities did you love as a child that you’d love to revisit?
