30 Brilliant Gift Ideas for Crafters
Every crafter need reliable equipment. It’s what makes their beautiful creations they see in their minds come to life! Below are my favorite tried and and true craft machines!
Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker – I’ve used the Cricut explore air for some time. I have been over-the-moon happy with it from day one. The Cricut Explore is definitely a must have gift for any crafty person. Want to really get them excited? Upgrade them to the Cricut Maker, the latest cutting machine that cuts a wider array of materials including wood and crepe paper! Like, how is that even possible?!
Cricut Accessories– Cricut usually sells machine bundles that can have everything a crafter needs to get started, but they also sell additional accessories that are pretty AWE-SOME! Like the Cricut easy press which is made specifically for vinyl projects. I haven’t owned this (yet, it’s on my list this year) but I have know several people who do and they rave about it!
Sewing Machine – If your crafty loved one doesn’t yet have a sewing machine, or is in need of an upgrade, this gift idea is sure to make them happy!
Self healing mat– I don’t know why it took my so long to buy a self-healing mat. They are pretty awesome for cutting on! Every crafter should have one.
Brush Pens– Brush pens can be used for a lot of different things. Pair this accessories up with our hand lettering book suggestion below for the perfect gift!
A Quality Glue Gun– Every crafter has to have a quality glue gun. I personally love when I can find a standing glue gun because they don’t stick to your table surface when set down.
