The Best Gifts for Crafters

Can you believe we’re almost halfway through November?

It’s crept up on us this year, but it’s definitely time to start thinking about what to gift to loved ones as we approach Christmas (and to drop hints to Santa!). For this post, we’re rounding up some of the best creative supplies and gifts for the seasoned crafter.

Most of these companies are based in the UK, but they'll often ship overseas too. Enjoy!


Stork Scissors Needle Minder

Keeping your needle safe whilst you work, this super sweet stork scissors magnetic needle minder by Wild Olive for Cloud Craft (above) clips to your fabric, so if you pop your work down for a minute, you won’t spend the next 10 looking for your needle (and warning your family they need to wear slippers!) Plus, it also doubles up as a wee brooch - even better!

Felt Storage Basket

We absolutely love this felted basket by Wild Llama on Etsy which would work well in any interior. It’s the perfect home for balls of wool and knitting needles (and cats!), and would make for a gorgeous present, filled with wool, for those knitters out there!

A Craft Book

Why not treat your loved one to a crafty book - especially a craft you know they haven’t tried but think they’d enjoy. We spotted this lovely one on Japanese Woodblock printing - the ancient art of Mokukanga. You could even get them a set of carving tools to get started…

Or, for those that love crochet, we recommend Modern Crochet Style, written by one of our past craft kit designers, Lindsey Newns.


Silver Sewing Machine Earrings In A Bottle

These earrings would make for a gorgeous gift for the avid machine sewers out there. It’s packaged so beautifully in a glass bottle, drawstring bag and box - ready to gift to straight loved ones!


Daylight Uno LED Lamp

We're going to say it, those cross stitch holes are a little more difficult to see than they used to be! Enter the Daylight lamp, friend to evening-time crafters everywhere.

 This portable LED daylight lamp from Cass Art can be clamped to different surfaces and shaped to find the perfect lighting in any situation.

Craftiosity Subscription

If your favourite crafter loves trying new projects, why not treat them to a Craftiosity subscription (we might be a little biased!)

Each month, we'll send them the tools, materials and instructions to make a complete project - so they can try new crafts easily without buying up half of Hobbycraft (we've all been there!)

Rolling subscriptions are £24.95 a month (including UK delivery, and you can cancel at any time) or buy a 1, 3, 6 or 12 month gift subscription. You can also treat them to a one-off craft kit in our shop

The Craft Room Superstar

Finally, let's push the boat out with this incredible Storeaway from Crafts 4 Storage; a true craft Narnia! We can only dream of all the crafty materials we could fit in here…
