Awesome Gifts for Crafters!
You all know how much I love my Cricut Explore. Cricut has just released it’s newest machine the “Cricut Maker”. This machine is aaahmazing. You can read all about the Cricut Maker and Explore Air 2 and see what they can do in this post.
The Cricut Maker (the newest cutting machine) and Cricut Explore Air 2 are crafting game changers. There are lots of projects( in my gallery ) that I have done with this little machine and I haven’t begun to tap into what it’s capable of! They so much more than cut paper. These little machine can cut stencils, vinyl appliques, fabric, lightweight wood, and so so much more. Here is a SMALL sampling of the types of projects you can make with the Cricut Explore Air 2
This was the best investment I have made thus far in my crafting business. I use it for nearly every project! I would highly recommend this as the perfect gift for any crafter. The Cricut Maker is on my Wish List this year!

Inspire the seasoned crafter or novice You can’t go wrong with a gift from Craftsy!
I had to do a little research for this category! I haven’t purchased a sewing machine in 20 years! They don’t even make mine anymore, but that’s ok-if you love your sewing machine, you’re in for the long haul. I looked up the top, 5-star rated sewing machines and my research revealed quite a few of them. I chose two machines from the list and both of them are around $150!!!!
Brother CS6000i Feature Rich Sewing Machine Approx. $150
These machines were rated 5 stars for ease of use, performance and construction, so any one of them would be a wonderful gift for any sewer’s range of experience from newbie to master!
A Dedicated and Organized Craft Space
There are thousands of craft and hobby supplies available and creating a place to store them all and a space to craft that’s practical and pretty can be a challenge. This is a little pricey, but it’s such a nice looking and practical piece of furniture I decided to share it with you.
I really like this piece. I hits all three necessities on my list–practical, attractive and not too big. I love that you can close it up if needed and store everything inside! There are dozens of other styles and colors available too. This Sauder cabinet holds your craft supplies and provides ample workspace. It’s a really pretty piece of furniture too.
I love this piece! The Better Homes & Gardens 8 Cube Organizer comes in these three finishes as well as grey and pink and gives tons of options for storage! Use it vertically or horizontally and add baskets and bins to sort and organize craft supplies.
Nothing makes a crafter happier than money to spend in our favorite craft stores. Don’t know what to buy? An online gift card from JoAnns or Michaels is the ideal gift for any crafter and you can purchase them online, just click the name of the store!
Zazzle has tons of gift ideas. You can even design your own t’shirts, phone cases, coffee mugs, travel mugs and hundreds of other items for a gift that’s a little more personal for the crafter who has everything (not possible)!
I hope you’ve been inspired to find just the right gift for your favorite crafter!
