8 Gift Ideas for the Crafter in Your Life

8 Gift Ideas for the Crafter in Your Life (aka what I want for Christmas)

(aka what I want for Christmas)

—— Marker Sets ——

No other writing utensil gives me the same satisfaction as a fresh marker across a crisp piece of paper. Give the joy of a new marker set with either splurge for the top-of-line Copic 36-Piece Sketch Basic Set for $153, or go classic with a 24-piece Sharpie Marker Set (w/ Storage Case). $40

—— Cricut Cutting Machine —–0009357304464_500X500
The Cricut Expression 2 Paper Cutting Machine is a scrapbooker’s dream come true. A Cricut is a magical machine that can cut paper into thousands of different shapes with the push of a few buttons. This is great gift for paper-crafters, card makers, or teachers. $149

—— Martha Stewarts’ Crafting Encyclopedias ——


These are my crafting bibles. Both of Martha Stewarts’ crafting encyclopedias are beautiful hardcover masterpieces and… I love them. I recommend the Encyclopedia of Crafts: An A-to-Z Guide”  for general crafters and her Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts for people who like to sew. $26 each.

—— Scissors ——-

Don’t underestimate the importance of a good pair of scissors. They are essential to most craft projects and worth investing in a good pair. I use Mundial 10′ industrial forged dressmaker’s shears for cutting fabric and a trust-worthy pair of  Fiskars 8′ titanium softgrip scissors for everything else. Mundial $38; Fiskars $12

—— Sewing Machine —–


    A whole new world of crafts opens up when you own a sewing machine; curtains, dresses, pillows, and so much more! I own the Brother CS6000i. It’s easy to use, has 60 stitch settings, and is on some sort of super sale @ Amazon right now. Originally $449, now $150

—— Glitter ——-

10464170If I seem obsessed with everything Martha, it’s because I am. I am also infatuated with glitter, so my love for this Martha Stewart Crafts Essential Colors Glitter Set, 24-Pack runs pretty deep.

—— Mod Podge ——

Mod Podge is a line of crafting products best known for their popular  decoupaging glue but they sell lots of other awesome products as well. Make someone a Mod Podge gift bag with some of their unique products like dimensional magic,photo transfer medium, tracing templates, or a decoupaging starter pack. All items around $10

—— Needle Felting Kits ——


This cute little penguin can be handmade using a needle felting kit. I love projects that can be done on a lazy Christmas day. Maybe even attach a string to him and hang him on the tree. This perfect little stocking stuffer is only $10
