Our Crafters Christmas Gift Guide

Updated: Nov 15, 2021

*Ad-Gifted. All opinions are our own.

When Autumn and Winter dawn, we both snuggle down on the sofa and bring out our knitting as well as hand making our own wreaths. We also love making homemade gifts like our soy wax melts and candles. When it comes to summer, we are all about canning and outdoor making projects like making our own garden obelisks. We're crafty, one of us is even VERY creative (let's not talk about the other's artistic skills ) and because of the joy that various craft projects bring to us, we wanted to create a Christmas Gift Guide for Crafters!

A gift in a tin is just such a lovely idea and this make your own insect house from Coastal Craft Collective makes the perfect gift for someone one who is crafty and likes the garden. We think the tin is perfect for keeping seeds in afterwards!

If you have a crafter in your family that likes ethical and sustainable things then why not gift this beautiful beeswax food wrap kit from BeeWrap UK. It has everything they will need to make the food wraps and easy step by step instructions. Perfect!

We love this painting kit from MasterPeace! It contains everything you need to create your own beautiful picture, including access to a video tutorial with a professional artist! This is the perfect gift for someone creative or perhaps someone who would benefit from some time out from the stresses of life. The tutorial can be stopped and started so you can work at your own pace. The kit is packaged so beautifully and is letterbox size for ease of delivery!

What is more beautiful than gifting a jigsaw? Gifting one where you choose the picture of course! And you can do this on this amazing app from Boots. You simply download the picture of your choice and you will be sent a beautiful high quality Ravensburger puzzle depicting your very own photo. So whether it’s a picture of the grandchildren or a special place you have visited right through to a celebration photo or special pet. The choices are endless and what a fabulous keepsake to give to that someone special!

We love this home brew kit with a difference. BOO CHI Kombucha letter box kits are just fabulous and contain everything you need to start your Kombucha journey. They make the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys healthy living and it comes complete with the Scobey and full step by step instructions and lifetime support. Why not get someone started, making this magical brew that will not only improve their health but their immune system too. Little secret from me… tastes good too! Hello good bacteria 😊

If you want to gift something this truly Dorset. These Dorset button starter kits from Henry's Buttons are just lovely and you will find everything you will need to get started in the art of Dorset button making. Learn how to make buttons just as they were hand made between 1622 and 1850. Learn about casting, slickening, laying and rounding to create your own beautiful Dorset button.

This the perfect gift for the crafter on your Christmas list. It is a lovely candle making kit from Cosy Owl. It comes with step by step instructions and everything they will need to make five spiced candles, so you may even get a little handmade gift back.

If you have someone who isn't easy to buy for but is into technology then this Rebel Tech kit will make the perfect stocking filler. This little box of wonder will get any tech geek, or gadget freak excited. It has nine uniquely inventive tech projects. Its a great gift for those who like to tinker and repair and is full of handy hints too!

We just absolutely love this cute needle felting kit from BERGIN BATH. It is suitable for age 12 up and has everything you need to make three sweet little Guinea pigs. Including step by step photograph instructions, so even a complete beginner can make them. What a lovely Christmas gift for someone crafty!
