The Best Gifts for Crafters
Is it just us, or do you have a flurry of birthdays around this time of year too?
If you’re looking for a gift for your favourite crafter, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite supplies and craft kits aimed at the grown ups! If you’re looking for a birthday present, thinking ahead to Christmas or want to treat someone special, you might find just the thing.
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!
Silver Thimble and Button Necklace
For a special occasion, we love this gorgeous solid silver thimble and button necklace by jeweller Joanna Wakefield. Dainty and elegant, it’s the perfect keepsake to remind them – and subtly tell others – of their favourite hobby.
Miniature Wirehaired Daschund Needle Felting Kit
How cute is this little fella? Perfect for crafters who have a soft spot for dogs, this miniature wirehaired daschund needle felting kit from the Craft Kit Company is an ideal present we bet no-one else will have thought of. Plus, for every kit bought, a donation is made to Edinburgh Dog and Cat home.
You never knew you needed one of these… til now! For those that love to keep their crafting organised, these super handy bobbin buddies from Sew Scrumptious make sewing projects easier than ever by keeping threads with their matching bobbins!
Felt Needle Case Kit
We’re loving the colours and folk-art inspired embroidery in this project – and having a place to neatly store needles and pins is so handy! This felt needle case kit from Corinne Lapierre is a great little project for crafters of all abilities.
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.
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). You can see some of our past projects below.
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…
Thanks for reading! We hope this has inspired your crafty search, or introduced you to some fabulous new companies.

Each month, we design a limited edition craft kit for you. It could be macrame, ceramics, book-binding – or something completely different!
Beautifully packaged, your box will arrive full of inspiration and all the materials, tools and instructions to make a complete project.
This month’s project is to make a Stitched Shibori Tea Towel, perfect to brighten up drying the dishes!
Shibori is the Japanese art of binding or stitching an item of fabric then dyeing it to create beautiful and unusual patterns.
Your kit includes everything you need for the project; you’ll just need scissors, a basin or bucket, and a measuring jug.
