Best Gift Ideas for Crafters

A Cutting Machine

This is probably the dream crafting gift for any crafter. I absolutely love my cutting machine and I have just scratched the surface of all of the fun things you can make with it.

A few of the projects I have made are fun vinyl lettering for a gift mug last year, a spring stencil to decorate my chalkboard, and the stencil for the stenciled wall in our master bedroom as well as a few other smaller projects.

I know there are multiple brands of cutting machines. However, I am most familiar with Cricut products since I have the Cricut Maker machine, which is the one pictured above. I love the Maker because it gives me the option of cutting and creating a ton of different things.

If you don’t know what a cutting machine is, it is a tool that allows you to use a computer program to design your own patterns and cut a ton of different products to fit your ideas. The possibilities for creativity are endless.

A cutting machine or cutting machine supplies are always great options for the crafters in your life. Click on the pictures below to get more details on each product.

A Cutting Mat

Even if you have a cutting machine, having a good cutting mat is super helpful for those quick craft projects. Make sure to get a self healing mat like this to protect the surface you are crafting on.

A Wood Burner

Wood burning is a beautiful way to customize your home or create unique gifts for your friends. Gifting one of these tools might just be what your crafter needs to get inspired to create.

Rock Art Kit

Rock art can be a fun way to create without needing to buy a crazy amount of supplies. Rocks are everywhere, so materials are plentiful. Just grab a book for some creative ideas to get started and stock up on a few acrylic or oil paint markers for a cheap and fun creative outlet. Click on the pictures for more details.

Diamond Paintings

This year I discovered the concept of diamond painting, which is kind of like color by number, but with a canvas and sparkly jewels. I have my eyes set on these two paintings with trees for my home, however, there are a ton of options out there for almost any interest and decorating style.

Adult Coloring Books

Even though I love to be creative and come up with my own ideas, sometimes my brain just needs a break. I recently received an adult color by number, meaning it has tiny little intricate details to color and needs more dexterity than a children’s book.

I absolutely love it! It is a great way to unwind and destress.

This is the color quest color by number I have, and my daughter has the animal color quest. I have also seen the cityscapes color quest books and they are all very good quality.

I also received these colored pencils to go along with my color by number.

This brand of colored pencils is a little expensive, but they have the deepest and most beautiful color. If you are looking for an extra special gift for the crafter who loves to draw and color, these pencils are amazing!

Another great coloring book for adults are these rub-down transfer books. I own this transfer book and I love to color them with pencils and gel pens.

Beads and Buttons

There are so many things to do with beads and buttons. Sometimes a new book full of ideas or new supplies can be just the thing to get that crafter in your life excited to create.

Items that Celebrate Crafting

These items are perfect for celebrating the fun of crafting. For those crafters in your life who need a way to display their crafting pride, check out these ideas.

Craft Storage

When you are a crafter, you can never have too much storage to keep everything organized and easy to reach. Storage is always a great gift option.

  1. This is great, Erin! Haven’t checked this out until now, so I also thought I would post it for others on FB. I love the diamond painting & of course the coloring…
