There are so many great choices for craft gifts. What I love about craft supplies is they are perfect for any age and any ability. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to find the perfect gift for a crafting pro, or a beginner, there are a lot of gift ideas for craft lovers.
Craft Gifts for Painters
Painting supplies get expensive, so the perfect gifts are those that help keep the budding artist fully stocked with paints, canvases and brushes. Here are a few ideas for supplies that every painter should have on hand.
Packs of artist canvases. These are perfect for all ages. I always have some on hand so that my daughter can paint and draw whenever she wants.
Any type of paint set is great, but I think that acrylic paints are the most versatile. These come in handy for a variety of different projects, not just painting.
LED Light Box
A light box is a fun craft gift. This can be used for tracing a pattern or picture. This is fun for kids who may not be great at drawing, but love to paint. Simply trace your favorite picture and you can copy this onto your canvas.
Craft Gifts for Creativity
There are some arts and crafts that I love to have on hand and I think they make great gift ideas. These are things that people don’t always go out and buy, but they really come in handy when you want to try a new project and are looking for supplies.
Modeling clay– Good for building fun designs and these really come in handy for school projects. I prefer modeling clay that air dries and doesn’t require baking in the oven.
Embroidery Floss– can be used for cross-stitch, embroidery and making friendship bracelets.
Glue gun– a definite must have for any crafter. Be sure to keep lots of extra glue sticks on hand as these run out quickly.
Colored pencils– this is another versatile art supply to have on hand. Combine this with a fun coloring book and you have the perfect gift for any age. And I do mean ANY age. There are so many beautiful coloring books designed for adults and it is such a relaxing craft.
As someone who loves arts and crafts, my personal opinion is that you can’t go wrong with craft gifts. My daughter always requests arts and crafts for her birthday and Christmas and she has never been disappointed!
