50 Christmas Gift Ideas for Crafty Women

December 2nd, 2013 | Crafts, Gift Idea, Review, Scrapbooking, Seasonal

Every year at Christmas when I get the ‘you’re so hard to buy for’ it irritates me a bit because I have so many hobbies, I feel like they could just walk into a craft store and blindly choose something and I’d like it!  However, when I step out of my crafty shoes I realize how many options are out there and all the different avenues of being creative! I got to thinking “what does a crafty woman want for Christmas?”

50 AWESOME ideas from industry leaders- scrapbooking, sewing, jewellery, fine art, crocheting and knitting, DIY gifts ! The Ultimate list!

I decided to ask some industry leaders to help me come up with a few ideas, 50 in fact! Just my little way of trying to help our husbands and mother in laws out this holiday season!

I asked each crafter to give an idea in 5 different areas; Stocking Stuffer, Big-ticket item, something to read, learn, or do, an item they can’t live without, and a little something personal that they’d really love to have.

This is the ultimate list of Christmas Gift Ideas for Crafty Women!

Area of expertise-  Jewelry Making

  • Stocking stuffer–  BLING!  (Lots of actually jewelry to choose from in my shop, or a strand of pearls or crystals from jewelry supply shop.)  A gift card to a jewelry supply or craft supply shop.  A pretty little journal for sketching ideas and writing notes.
  • Big ticket item–  Macro Lens for Jewelry Photography
  • Something to read, learn, or do– A credit to Craftsy, to take an online class. If you have a local jewelry shop in the area that offers classes, a gift card would be a perfect idea!
  • Can’t live without–  Good tools!  Don’t get a cheap set from a big box store; get some quality tools from a specialty shop or jewelry supplier online.
  • Something personal–  Pretty nail polish, a great scarf or purse.  (Non-jewelry accessories.)

  • Area of Expertise– Urban sketching is my first love but I adore anything creative.
  • Stocking stuffer– Pens and markers!  The Staedtler felt tip pens are my all-time fav, especially the 0.05 line-weight nib.  I’m also a sucker for these graphic art pens and of course Sharpies.  I would kiss the person who gave me a colour pack of Sharpies!
  • Big ticket item– Man oh man – what I wouldn’t give for a drafting table/craft station  *drooooollll*
  • Something to read, learn, or do– I’m currently jonesing to take a class at the TSA (Toronto School of Art http://www.tsa-art.ca/).  Especially their Intro to Life Drawing.  I would love to learn how to draw people as more than just squiggly lines!
  • Can’t live without–  Hands down eternal companion – my sketchbook.  I’ve been using the same kind since University – black hardcover and spiral-bound sketchbook.  I buy a new one about every six months.  They’re like the journals of my life.  Except with messy scribbles and coffee stains!
