Foolproof Gift Guide for the Modern Crafter

Wondering what in the world to get your loved one who’s passion is crafting?

Walking into a Michaels or Jo-Anne craft store with no plan is best to avoid! This is the foolproof gift guide for the modern crafter, aka not your grandma’s gift guide!

The criterion for this list was items that are both super functional but also very aesthetically pleasing. Chances are that this year your loved one has had more quiet evenings to work away on projects. Maybe she’s set up a corner in the living room or bedroom. Gift her items that make this mini-studio a delight to spend time in!

Pretty & Functional Tools

Wondering what to get a person whos passion is crafting? This is the foolproof gift guide for the modern crafter. Gift Guide for Crafters

The Screw Punch is my most often reached for craft tool. The ability to punch a hole anywhere is a game changer.

A gold ruler, gold with acrylic handle scissors, and stork scissors are all both pretty and functional, making crafting that much more delightful!

Passion Planning & Scheduling

Passion Planning and Scheduling

Life is hectic, and finding time to craft doesn’t just happen. Help prioritize her passion through gifting tools to help, she’s sure to love anything from Rifle Paper! Notebooks for brainstorming ideas, a shopping list so she can get what she actually needs during her craft store trip, and a planner for scheduling in focused “crafting-is-self-care” time (or pre-write in evenings for her and find childcare/take on the meal responsibilities before you gift the planner!).

Make-Her-Year Tech Gifts

Make-Her-Year Tech Gifts, Cricut Maker

The Cricut Maker is top on every crafter’s list. Make her year with this generous gift!

The Cricut Explore Air 2 is the version under the Maker. This is what I have and the possibilities with Cricut machines are endless.

While working on a project, I am constantly running from my workstation to my craft storage, to the sink for cleaning, and back and forth – wireless headphones are the best for this. Apple AirPods are a luxury that allow me to dive into my own world while crafting and enjoy podcasts and audio books uninterrupted.

Beautiful Craft Space Storage

Craft Space Storage

This Large 8 Tier Clear Acrylic Storage Organizer is designed for makeup organization, but would be perfect to store and organize craft tools and supplies.

Clear Glass Boxes create a workspace that is both functional and beautiful.

Baskets are perfect for storing fabrics and yarns. This slim Handmade Laundry Basket would be great hung on a wall hook and kept off the floor.

Rattan Basket

These RÅSKOG Ikea Utility Cart allow for craft tools and supplies to be easily stored away in a closet or in a corner when not being used. Consider adding a custom storage element to the cart for extra usefulness.

This MOPPE Ikea Mini Chest of Drawers provides hidden storage for less “aesthetic” but necessary materials.

Gift your loved one an IVAR Ikea Cabinet for ultimate hideaway craft storage and let her give it an Ikea hack to suit her style and needs. Below are two of my favourite IVAR Ikea hacks. The hack on the left is by September Edit and the one on the right is by Paper & Stitch.

Creature Comforts

The Elowen Swivel Desk Chair provides both a comfy seat, mobility around the workspace, and looks beautiful as well – all encouraging hours of creativity!

Make her “crafting-is-self-care” time a relaxing experience with the Capri Blue Lagoon Jar Candle – the best candle scent ever. Period.

Unique Craft Supplies

Craft materials are a great stocking idea! This Velvet Ribbon and this Handmade Paper are unique materials that she won’t find in the Walmart craft aisle.
