Perfect Christmas Gifts For Craft Lovers – Our Guide

 

Perfect Christmas Gifts For Craft Lovers - Know someone who loves to sew, bake or craft? Struggling to find an ideal present? Here are my ideas for some of the best presents for crafty sewists, craft enthusiasts and keen bakers out there. Lovely little gifts and stocking fillers that crafters of all ages will enjoy. Craft kits, sewing tools, advent calendars. A guide to finding the perfect inspiring crafting gift.

 

With Christmas fast approaching I want to give you some brilliant ideas of some perfect gifts for the craft lover in your life. Whether you love sewing, crochet, knitting or paper crafts, there are some brilliant businesses out there that are making excellent products to help you live a more inspired life.

Crafting and sewing for me is the perfect antidote for the turbulent times in which we live. It promotes mindfulness and helps me personally to relax. I would always encourage people to take up some kind of creative hobby. So why not read through some of these ideas of what to buy a craft lover for Christmas? And maybe consider taking up a crafty pastime yourself?

 

For The Sewing And Craft Beginner

 

Why not try a simple sewing kit like this one from I Do Handmade? Becky and her mum Wendy also believe in the calming benefits of a creative hobby. Based in West London, they offer a wide variety of craft kits, from block printing to crochet to macrame. They also run workshops on various crafts.

I Do Handmade Handwarmer Kit

The pretty, well packaged kits come with everything you need to create these wonderful things at home. We were sent their hand warmer craft kit (rrp £9) to try. Whether you sew them by hand or on your machine, they are a lovely easy make with a useful purpose at the end of the day! 

I DO Handmade Hand Warmers

 

They have kindly given one of these sets to our giveaway (see below). And they stock all manner of other craft kits on their site. They have offered my readers 15% off  any orders from www.idohandmade.co.uk using code AROSETINTEDWORLD15 – this has no expiry date. So do go and check them out!

 

For The Baking Enthusiast

 

I love subscriptions as gifts. To me they far outweigh material gifts as they help build memories. So I was delighted when I was contacted by the lovely people at If I Knew You Were Coming.

This small independent company present an exciting new way to bake. You receive a baking kit through your letterbox each month. Each kit contains detailed instructions and ingredients to bake a quick and delicious treat. And you can choose from having a new box every month for 3, 6 or 12 months. Prices start at around £6.50 a month.

If I Knew You Were Coming Baking Subscription box

They provide all the dry ingredients clearly labelled. And you only need to supply a few store cupboard items that they cannot post, such as eggs, milk and oil. All their baking kits are available for individual purchase and include free delivery.

We received 3 sets, but have put one of the sets in the giveaway below. The set that we baked was the Apple Crumble Muffins that we were sent, and it was so easy that Elizabeth (aged 4) could join in. We needed to add oil, an egg and some milk, but everything else was so simple. The muffins came out perfectly and tasted amazing!

Making the Apple Crumble Muffins

Best of all, the company are doing their utmost to be eco friendly. The boxes and a lot of the wrapping is recyclable and the ‘plastic’ ingredient bags are biodegradable and compostable. The wrapping inside the box is reusable greaseproof paper. It went straight in my baking drawer!

Do go check their site out here.

For Keen Sewers

 

I would always advocate buying a cheap entry level sewing machine if you have a budding sewist. A lot of the toy sewing machines out there on the market have got some very bad reviews. So even if you have a small child who wishes to sew it may be worth looking online locally or on eBay for a local full size machine that you may be able to get for a really cheap price. 

 

Hemline Advent Calendar

 

However, if that is not within your budget, or the person is more of a hand sewist, then this advent calendar from Hemline is a lovely idea to count down to the big day. With a different sewing related tool behind every window, the recipient will end up with a brilliant array of sewing paraphernalia to see them through most sewing projects. 

Worth at least £30 , you can find them at Amazon, John Lewis, and lots of other online stockists. But I have one to win in the competition below!

 

For Crafty Kids And Adults Alike

 

There are lots of craft kits to buy online. But one of the best ideas I have seen this year in the run up to Christmas is this craft advent calendar from Make The Lakes.

Based in Cumbria (The Lake District), Kym at Make the Lakes has an online shop, but also runs craft retreats and workshops from her studio. Sadly, she has had to postpone all her workshop sessions in the face of the current pandemic, but her online shop remains open.

And this year she has created a brilliant advent calendar of crafts to make in the run up to the big day. With 5 mini step by step projects where a new step is revealed daily, it will keep you crafting down the days until Christmas!

Make The Lakes Advent Calendar Craft Box

The advent calendar craft box contains 24 numbered envelopes. Each envelope contains the next step and materials to make your 5 festive craft projects. The advent calendars cost £40 and are available on her site here.

But she also sells lots of other craft kits, including this Christmas craft kit worth £9.50 that she has kindly gifted for my giveaway. See how you can win this perfect Christmas Gift for craft lovers below.

No Matter What You Buy

No matter what you buy for your craft loving friend, I would urge you to support your local businesses and shops too. So if there is a local independent craft or fabric shop, do go visit them, see if they have an online outlet or do a click and collect service. In these very uncertain times it is vital to use them or lose them.

I lost one of my favourite local sewing shops this year. It had been going for many many years, but just could not take the downturn in sales, and the owner was not technical enough to go online.

And I would also say that I think that experiences are much better than material things, so it may be worth asking your craft loving friend if there is a craft they are longing to try, but haven’t got around to yet. There are so many craft kits and online tutorials out there that you are sure to find one that fits the bill perfectly!

Happy crafting!
