As I’m sure you’ve figured out by reading my blog, I’m a crafter. I love DIY projects and love to sit down and create some art whenever I get the chance. So, when purchasing a Christmas gift for me, a surefire hit is always something to help me with my crafting.
Here are some of my favourite picks for fantastic gifts for the crafter on your list (affiliate links included):
The SewEasy is a great gift for anyone who loves paper crafting. It’s under $20 and provides them with 5 different heads. What does it do? Well each head pierces your paper into a different design, making it really easy then to sew through the pattern, creating that beautiful stitched paper look. I use my set all the time!
Just like the Sew Easy tools punch out a stitching pattern for you in your paper designs, these Sew Ribbon tools punch a design to weave ribbon through. These run about $12 and again, mine are something I use on a regular basis.
I’ve been wanting one of the Get-It-Straight Laser Squares forever! I’ve seen them demonstrated and they are super cool. Use them when working on scrapbook pages or greeting cards – any kind of paper project of that sort – and it will help you line up the elements (paperpieces, rubber stamps and so on) to get them in just the right spot and perfectly aligned. Great for quilters too!
I remember trying some beading on looms when I was a kid but this is the best one I’ve ever used (and I’m not just saying that because my friend invented it!). Create beaded cuff bracelets, earrings and more with this. Under $10
On currently for under $75, any crafter would love to receive this amazing die cutting machine! Can be used in so many types of crafts and for so many different themes. It’s a staple in my craft room.
Have you ever tried needle felting? I find it really relaxing and quite easy to pick up and complete a great project in a short period of time. This starter kit is a great way for someone to give it a try for the first time and see if it’s something they enjoy. Under $15
A punch is a punch is a punch, right? Wrong! There are so many times that a standard punch just isn’t strong enough or just won’t reach far enough to work for a project I’m making and the Crop-A-Dile solves that problem. About $25
I love this series of stamps from my pal Ann Butler. So many applications! Use them on paper or fabric, mixing and matching them to create a quilt design or other fun patterns. Around $15
A Dremel rotary tool is such a handy item to have because there are just so many uses for it – drilling, sanding, filing, much much more! Around $80
If there’s one thing that almost all crafters use frequently, it’s their glue guns. That’s why you can often recognize a frequent crafter by their hot glue scars. But, you don’t need to get injured while crafting with your hot glue gun anymore with this hot glue gun helpers kit! Under $15
