It goes without saying that CreativeLive is home to tons of super talented crafting enthusiasts. We love watching community members put their creativity to good use –– especially when their creations are turned into profitable business ventures! If you have a craft-lover in your life, we’ve rounded up 10 covetable gifts that would be a welcome addition to anyone’s work room or studio –– not to mention a welcome addition under the Christmas tree. Check out our roundup of must-have gifts, and feel free to get inspired by breaking out the glitter glue.
Felted Soap Kit: $18
Felting is one of the easiest and most fun textile crafts you can take on, and this felted soap kit is fool-proof. In case you aren’t in the know, felted soap lasts extra long, is super exfoliating, and the best part is that the felted wool shrinks as the soap wears out. Check out the Textile Arts Center for a kit!
4 Seasons of Embroidery Kit: $58
This whimsical embroidery set is great for fans of needle art who need a little inspiration. Each kit from Purl Soho comes with a packet of transfers depicting trees and woodgrain letters, plus fabric, embroidery thread, needles and a hoop! It’s a one-stop shop for embroidery goodness.
Washi Tape: $2.25
You can’t go wrong with a selection of carefully curated Washi tape from Etsy. This decorative Japanese tape can be used for art projects, gift wrapping, or even to make impromptu photo frames –– plus it’s crazy inexpensive! Check out PrettyTape for tons of gorgeous options.
Sewing Notions Set: $75
Do you have a family member who loves to sew? Because this kit from Merchant & Mills is everything. Not only is it beautifully designed (we’ve never wanted to sew buttons so badly), each set includes needles, pins, wide bow scissors, a seam ripper, threader, tailor’s chalk, beeswax and a tape measure.
At-Home Letterpress Kit: $53.64
This might be the most amazing gift you could ever give a crafter. Lifestyle Crafts‘ letterpress kit comes with everything you need to turn your die-cutter into an at-home letterpress machine, allowing you to make your very own hand-pressed cards and invitations! And yes, this is a great present for friends who are in the market for wedding invites….
Brass Colored Pencil Set: $75
Trying to find something for the design-obsessed style maven in your life? Look no further than this swanky colored pencil holder from Jayson Home, which displays 24 pencils in a brass box. Definitely a lavish gift, but hey –– colored pencils deserve their moment in the spotlight.
Alphabet Stamps: $19.50
Most people would be happy unwrapping any present from Muji, but we definitely have our eye on these alphabet stamps for our craft-happy friends. Simple and elegant, the creative possibilities are endless!
Lap Loom: $29.95
Tapestry weaving is super on-trend in the craft world (so many wall hangings, so little time), and now your friends can make their own. This simple lap loom from Woolery is cheap and easy, but will definitely get the job done. Plus, it’s a great introduction to weaving larger items.
Vintage Dress Pattern: Variable
Calling all clothing designers! Nothing beats this vintage jacket and skirt pattern from Etsy’s Pattern Shop, which will be a blast for the seamstress in your life. Pattern prices vary from just $10 to $80 depending on the style, and most styles are from the 40s and 50s.
Made By Hand: $21.43
This roundup wouldn’t be complete without a book full of fun projects, and Lena Corwin’s Made by Hand is at the top of our wish list. Lena’s book of textile and art projects should be on every crafter’s shelf!
