Etsy Gift Card
Did you know that Etsy has gift cards that can be used in a majority of Etsy shops? This is an awesome last minute crafter gift idea! What’s even better is that recipients can mix and match from different shops to use the credit. Get a Etsy gift card here.
To reward me for being the affiliate of the month, Etsy gave me a gift card to treat myself. 😀 I thought I’d share what items I considered in case you still need some inspiration. I didn’t have the budget to get them all but I would have if I could!
Perfect Crafter Gift Ideas
Needle Organizers and Project Bags by Fivetosix
Super convenient for all crafters, awesome quality and needles stay in place. You can do custom orders to have exactly the slots you need.
I already have a full needle organizer and cable organizer but I was very tempted by the holiday fabric notion pouch.
Crochet Hook Set
Can you believe I only have one hook of each size?! Being a many WIP girl, I’m frustrated having to switch my favorite hook sizes from one project to the next. So a new hook would be a great crafter gift idea to give me! And I am pretty sure I am not the only one starting too many projects at once… 😉
Clover Hook Sets
Clover Hooks are always a good bet.
Their metal tip is strong and sleek while their colorful handle offers a comfortable grip. The handle naturally fitting design prevents you from gripping the hook unnecessarily tightly, stopping your hand from getting tired easily.
Each hook size has a different handle color which makes it very easy to fish for the right hook in your notions pouch or project bag. They come in 2 different sets:
- 9 hooks from 2 mm to 6 mm: the most polyvalent set in my opinion!
- 7 smaller hooks, from 0.6 mm to 1.75 mm
Prym Hook Set
But I finally went for this Prym Hook Set
My mom has a couple of these hooks that I borrowed once and loved using although I usually don’t like plastic. That’s what convinced me to get these for myself!
They also have colorful handles that help you distinguish each hook size from one another. You can choose to buy only the most used sizes by selecting each one you want individually or you can buy the full pack of 12 hooks, from 3 mm to 15 mm. Ergonomic design makes these crochet hooks easy to hold and are gentle on your hands for longer crocheting.
Bare Sock Yarn and Mini Set
You are afraid of picking colors for someone else? Undyed yarn is the perfect solution! The recipient of your yarny gift will have the choice of exploring natural or standard dyeing by him/herself (which can open up your favorite crafter to a whole new world of possibilities!) or to use it in its natural color, an environmentally-friendly option. You can grab some bare sock yarn here
I have a lovely advent mini set from Biffsugar Yarns that I’ve been wanting to turn into a striped sweater with a light neutral main color yarn that I never treated myself too. These mini kits make such an awesome crafter gift idea!
I couldn’t find the perfect shade of very very lightly blush pink I wanted to go with my advent mini set so I decided to go for undyed yarn and play with some avocado dying again. Read my previous post on how to dye yarn with avocado peels.
Handy tool for colorwork
This little tool will help keep my yarn untangled, especially when working with several colors (which is the main reason I don’t do it more often!). Let’s see if it works!
It seems well crafted, has rave reviews, a classy look and it comes in 5 different shades so you can match it with your project bag. What else could you ask for?
I absolutely love wearing cashmere as I’m always freezing. So making myself a cashmere sweater has been on my dream to-do list for a while. If only it was more commonly available and affordable!
This yarn seems like a good choice and not just the 5-10% cashmere you usually see.
It comes in a great variety of shades, so you can pick your crafter’s favorite color. I would totally go for one of the natural light brown shades or the delicate lilac to make myself a soft sweater! What color has you dreaming?
Yarn Geek Mug
I drink tea all day long, and somehow I don’t have any yarn-related mug yet. How on earth is that even possible?
This yarn geek mug has a shape I just love to hold and drink from. Plus, the design is so cute! Such a perfect gift idea for knitters!
Sock Knitting Needles
I have the 2 mm and 2.5 mm needles for socks but I’m always wanting to use these 2 other sizes I don’t have yet: 2.25 mm and 2.75 mm. With all these 4 sizes sock needles, I can now really choose what fits best the yarn and stitch pattern I want to knit.
