7 Gifts for Art and Crafts Lovers

Crafter's Companion – 19/04/22

There’s nothing quite like giving the perfect gift – watching their eyes light up in surprise and joy as they unwrap it and getting the satisfaction of knowing you nailed it. It can be tough finding craft gifts for adults for your friends and loved ones but it doesn’t need to be difficult. 

Read on to find some of our favourite craft gift ideas for any creative person in your life.

1. Cardmaking kits

Giving a card making kit as a gift is a great way to introduce beginners to the craft or treat an experienced crafter. These easy-to-use sets often include everything you need to design and create a card, including adhesive foam pads, blank cards, die-cut designs and messages, and stick-on decorations. 

Whether for practice or for sending to friends and family, give them the Violet Studio Farmstead Easter cardmaking kit for the perfect Easter card. The ideal alternative to chocolate, this card making kit is just as sweet. 

For those who are a little more experienced or ambitious with their card making, the Violet Studio Large Cardmaking Compendium might be just the thing. Boasting a full range of card blanks, envelopes, die-cut toppers, stickers, and embellishments, this card kit is the perfect gift to help them get creative.

Find a range of themed sets such as the Sara Signature Nutcracker set – perfect to pop under the Christmas tree or the Sara Signatures Swan Lake kit for any crafty ballerina in your life.

  2. Craft kits

If you can’t make up your mind on what craft supplies to give your arts and crafts lover, why not let us make the decision for you?
Crafting kits are released monthly from Crafter’s Companion and contain all sorts of different supplies for your giftee to enjoy. Choose from a range of different themes and kits that makes the perfect present to give any paper crafter and ideal for novice cardmakers looking to try new techniques. Please note that some kits do require the use of a die cutting machine so make sure to double-check the contents before purchasing.

3. Embroidery and Sewing kits

No matter whether your giftee is new to the world of needlecraft or is already proficient, embroidery and sewing kits are a fun way to practice sewing without the need to buy lots of supplies. These kits contain everything needed to get started straight out of the box, including materials, stitching guides, and instructions.

A finished embroidery project makes colourful, fun home decor while keyring sewing kits are an easy way to create a cute handmade gift for friends and family.

4. Art and Colouring kits

For the artist in your life, you may like to consider a Discovery Kit by Spectrum Noir. Handpicked by a team of talented artists and professionals, Spectrum Noir Advanced Discovery Kits combine expert detailed instruction with all of the essential tools you need to master a whole host of new techniques, from advanced colour blending to illustration. Choose from a range of different colour sets and kits to help them practice their skills with alcohol markers.

5. A Die Cutting Machine

Die cutting is a varied and versatile craft that adds embellishment to a project with more detail than you could usually achieve using a craft knife or scissors. Gifting a die cutting machine is an extra special treat for any paper crafter or sewist in your life. 

A die cutting machine can be used to cut out all sorts of different embellishments and details for scrapbooking, cardmaking, and a variety of other papercraft projects. They can also be used for sewing projects, making it easier than ever to cut out quilting and patchwork shapes.

6. The Gift of Organisation

Any crafter knows that organisation is difficult to keep on top of. If the crafter in your life has a craft space overflowing with supplies and materials, there’s nothing better than the gift of the perfect storage solution. 
Treat your crafter to some fun and decorative organisation options such as the pretty Crafter’s Companion Storage Case, the reliable Stash and Stack storage box or the handy Craft and Carry Workstation to help keep their collection in check.

7. Create your own gift

Nothing shows someone what you think of them more than a personalised gift. If you know a die-hard die cutter or someone who can’t get enough of lovely embellishments and stationery, why not choose a few crafting goodies to curate your own bespoke craft gift box? 
Choose a selection of supplies such as dies, stamps, Spectrum Noir markers, wax seal kits, and much more to help them create gorgeous cards and stunning scrapbook spreads. You could also include details such as some sweet Violet Studio A5 Notebooks or mini embellishments such as these Violet Studio gems and pom poms to help their projects really pop. Bundle them up in a gift bag or hamper for a truly wonderful gift.
