Our review of the Apple Pencil found it to be a great choice for any iPad user even five years after its release. From our review:

When I get the itch to sketch something, or more likely, color in an app, I'm treating it as an artistic tool that I'm not even good enough to handle. It's so satisfying to draw on the screen, color with different brushes, and use the pressure sensitivity to change the thickness and how the Apple Pencil responds.

The Apple Pencil works with more recent Apple devices including the iPad and iPad mini, it features palm rejection so you don't accidentally input with your hand on iPad while using it, pressure sensing, and tilt support where changing the angle of your pencil can adjust things like the thickness of a line you're drawing.

This model works with the iPad (6th, 7th, and 8th generation), iPad Air (3rd generation), iPad mini (5th generation), iPad Pro 12.9-inch (1st and 2nd generation), iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad Pro 9.7-inch. It connects via Bluetooth and charges using the Lightning connector on your iPad. Order one now and it will even arrive before Christmas!
