It’s hard finding the perfect gift for anyone, but what do you get a crafter who seems to has everything? Here we give you our top eight gift ideas guaranteed to bring a smile to your creative crafter’s face:
The most obvious, but sometimes the best, gift you can get for the craft-lover in your life is a magazine subscription. You can purchase magazines for any craft, they’re full of ideas that they may not have thought about, and they’ll last for a long time! Some of them even come with free gifts and crafts for you to try out. Have a look on Magazine Subscriptions for fabulous magazines and good deals.
Know someone who is fond of cross stitch? Nothing will make them happier than a tapestry kit. We personally love this ‘A Day on the Canal’ kit from The Hobby Warehouse (RRP: £33.30). It includes wool, a needle and the canvas. There is also some easy to follow instructions included making it a great gift for those new to the craft or those who are more advanced.
If you know someone who can knit and do it well, chances are they love making things for other people. Why not help them out in their creations and give them this Knits to Give book from Stitch Craft Create? It’s only £8.31, and has 30 ideas for knitted gifts. There’s something for every occasion – everything from a house warming gift to a little something to say ‘I love you’ on Valentines Day. They’ll enjoy each and every item in the book. And who knows, maybe you’ll even get a knitted thank you!
Sometimes it’s not the supplies that crafters need – it’s the storage! Help them out with this Rustic Craft Mini Chest of Drawers from dotcomgiftshop at £29.95. There are three drawers, one for sewing, one for crafting and the other for mending. This’ll make the rummaging through boxes trying to find the right fabric/ribbon/needle/card disappear. It also makes a gorgeous piece of vintage styled furniture for any room.
Do they travel a lot but still enjoy a good sew? Get them this Kingswood Rose Travel Sewing Kit from Cath Kidston. It’s reduced from £16.00 to £13.60, so grab one quickly before they’re gone! Included in the mini sewing kit are scissors, needles, a tape measure, stitch unpicker, and even some oilcloth. There is a beautiful floral design on the outside, and a polka dot inside. Perfect for passing the time on a long journey!
There’s no such thing as too many craft boxes, and this is especially true when they’re as gorgeous as this. The Vintage Style Craft Box By Dibor from notonthehighstreet.com is a fantastic way to store all of your craft supplies, whether they’re sewing, jewellery making, or creating cards. There’s a space for everything, and it sits nicely on a dressing table or sideboard. Buy yours for £21.00.
A gift for those who enjoy making their own jewellery could be this Bijouz By Me Shimmer Bracelet Kit. They’ll love creating a personal piece and the kit includes enough equipment to make three bracelets. It’s the best gift for those who enjoy expressing their creativity through jewellery making and they’ll be able to show off their finished product. You can buy yours for £19.95 from John Lewis.
Let those knitters show off their skills in style with this Knit Your Own Riviera Sweater Advanced kit from Wool and The Gang. From £95 they’ll be able to create a fashionable sweater that can be worn throughout the year. If they’re just starting out, there are kits that start right at the beginning but still leave you with a gorgeous finish.
