Creativity is life

It goes without saying: iPad Pro is the best device for you if you're a creator. The big 12.9-inch retina display will bring out the artist/creator in your partner.

It supports the latest generation Apple Pencil as well which makes it feel like you're drawing on a virtual canvas. It is powered by an industry-leading M1 chipset that allows for smooth transitions while using the tablet.

There are tons of Android tablets to choose from when it comes to media construction, but if you want one of the best options at the right price, then you will have to opt for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7.

The average user

If your partner is an average user, and you don’t want to spend a lot on a tablet, Apple's basic iPad is an all-rounder.

Perfect portable Tablet

The Apple iPad mini managed to hit the sweet spot between a large smartphone and a small tablet.

Big Screen on a Budget

This option is more budget-friendly since it usually starts at $529 when it is not on sale, but that is still better than paying more than $1,000 on the Plus variant when it is not on sale. It comes with a 12.4-inch display with 2560x1600 resolution, an Octa-Core Qualcomm SM7225 processor, and up to 256GB storage space. This model also packs a stylus inside the box, which means that you will also be able to draw, sketch, take notes, and more on this tablet.

The best cheap tablet option

If you are on a budget, Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 10 Plus is one of the best tablets that doesn't break the bank. It has all-day battery life, a big 1-0-inch display, support for all streaming apps, wireless charging, 4GB RAM, and an octa-core processor for just a starting price of $140. It doesn't support Google Play, though. If you're looking for a cheap tablet with Google Play Store, Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is a fantastic choice.
