A birthday or Christmas is the perfect time to gift the craft lover in your life new tools and supplies to inspire new ideas. The best gifts are the ones that include a little bit of thought and a lot of love. If you know someone who enjoys crafting, they’ll be overjoyed to receive a special gift that allows them to expand their hobby and keep crafting throughout the year. The follow list is a great starting point when thinking about Christmas gifts for craft lovers.
How-To Craft Books
Craft books are the manuals for craft lovers who want to learn a new skill, or brush up on a technique that they haven’t used in a while. Craft books often have step-by-step guides for new crafting ideas, and beautiful pictures to go along with the instructions. Craft books can also provide valuable inspiration for new crafting ideas. Some neat craft book ideas for the craft lover in your life include guides for knitting, quilting, painting, jewelry making and sewing.
Look for books with professional photos or illustrations to make the guides easier to follow and use. Get a book that will teach a crafty person a new skill, or one that will show them how to do a different aspect of the craft they already love. For example, a watercolor book for someone who always uses oil paints. You can also find artist’s journals for a craft lover to keep track of their own crafts.
If you know that someone in your life is a blossoming seamstress or tailor, giving them new patterns this holiday season is a gift they are sure to love. Read up on the trendy pattern types and designs for the winter months, or look ahead for spring and summer fashions to find great, contemporary patterns to give. You can easily find patterns for pretty dresses, well-tailored pants, skirts and shirts at fabric stores and online retailers. Pair this gift with a new pair of scissors or pins to really go the extra yard.
Supplies and Tools
Every crafter needs supplies, so what better gift to give than new supplies and tools. Tailor the gift towards the craft lover’s favorite hobby and the present is sure to be a success. For example, paintbrushes and canvas make great gifts for painters, while stickers and borders make excellent presents for scrapbookers. You can get a little creative with this gift and give virtually anything that the crafter would need, as crafty people always love any new supplies. You can also pick out a great craft supply organizer for the supplies that they already have at local craft stores, hardware stores, art stores or at online retailers.
Crafting Business Books
Many crafters are now able to sell their crafts in online marketplaces specifically geared towards small business owners and individual crafters. If you think that the craft lover in your life might benefit from some information about how to turn his or her crafting into a profitable endeavor, a crafting business book might be the perfect gift. Books about how to sell crafts and blog about crafting are not only informative, but also helpful for any craft lover interested in selling handmade products.
