1. Glue Gun

There are so many uses for glue guns in crafting. A new one is definitely on my own Christmas list this year. I had purchased a very cheap glue gun from my local craft store a while back and it’s just not holding up. My favorite feature on this particular one is the unique stand up base.

2. Cricut Cutting Machine

This machine would make an amazing gift for anyone who enjoys crafting. It can cut anything from paper to vinyl to felt and fabric. You can use it to create unique greeting cards, vinyl stickers for coffee mugs, stencils for sign making, graphics for tote bags and so much more. The possibilities are really endless!

3. Cutting Mat

A nice cutting mat is a must for any crafter. Perfect for measuring and cutting a variety of materials.

4. Rolling Storage Cart and Organizer

Crafting is so much more enjoyable when all your materials are organized and easily accessible. This rolling storage cart would make a great addition to any crafting room.

5. Printer

My husband actually just bought me this printer and I love it! I use it to print out labels, stickers, gift tags and so many other things for my crafts.

6. Portable Photo Studio

This would make an amazing gift for anyone who has an Etsy store. This tabletop photo studio will make their listings look extra professional.

7. Brush Lettering Kit

Hand lettering is very popular right now. It really is an art in itself. This brush lettering kit would be the perfect introduction for anyone looking to get into it.

8. Desk Lamp

When you’re trying to think of gift ideas for crafters, a lamp might not be what your mind goes to first. However, it is a very practical gift that will definitely get daily use. Whether they are working at night or just need a little extra light, a nice quality desk lamp will be a much appreciated gift!

9. Knitting/Crochet Organizer Bag

This is something I wish I had bought for myself years ago. I don’t know how many times I’ve gone to the store to buy new crochet hooks and supplies because mine seemed to disappear. Keeping all your materials in one place is the best way for things not to go missing. It makes traveling with your crafts much easier also!

10. Screen Printing Kit

Do you know someone who has an interest in t-shirt printing? This would be the perfect kit to get them started. Learn the basics of transferring your artwork onto t-shirts, tote bags and more.

11. Paper Cutter

Another practical gift idea for crafters. A paper cutter makes measuring and cutting simpler and much more accurate. Personally, I can never seem to cut a straight line with regular scissors!

12. Origami Kit

This gift would be great for both kids and adults. Learn how to create 38 origami projects with this fun book. It also comes with over 150 sheets of high quality origami paper.

13. Acrylic Paint Brush Set

Receiving this acrylic paint and brush set would make any crafter happy! It comes with a variety of different sized brushes and 24 tubes of paint.

14. Embroidery Starter Kit

This beginner kit comes with everything you need to get started with embroidery. A perfect gift for anyone looking to get into the craft.

15. Embroidery Machine

Along the same lines as #14, for the more experience crafter, an embroidery machine would make an amazing gift for crafters. For sewing, quilting and embroidery, there is so much you can do with it. Customize t-shirts, towels, tote bags and more!

16. Craftsy Class

Craftsy is an amazing community that offers online classes for crafting. From calligraphy to quilting to baking and painting, there are tons of online classes to help learn new skills. Click here to gift a Craftsy class.

17. Gift Cards

I know a lot of people think giving a gift card isn’t as thoughtful as picking something out yourself but I totally disagree! By giving a gift card you’re letting the person choose exactly what they need for their next project.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this selection of gift ideas for crafters. Let me know in the comments if you have any other gift ideas that should be added to the list!
