Hi there! December is upon us and Christmas is quickly approaching. I just can’t believe it’s already that time of year! Has the year flown by for you, too? I decided to try something a little different this year, and put together a Christmas gift guide because I’ve been seeing so many fun crafty gift ideas! I did a poll on Instagram to see if any of you’d be interested in seeing this gift guide and it got a good response…so here it is!
Because this is primarily a paper crafting blog, a good portion of these gift ideas are dedicated to those who enjoy working with paper. However, I’ve also included a wider variety of fun, creative things for any creative person in your life! Some of these items are ones I use and love. Most are things I haven’t tried personally, but look like great gifts. Please note that none of the products included are mine and I do not own the photos – they are the property of their respective owners, which are noted on each one. Some affiliate links are used in this article – you can read more info about that here.
I hope you get some fun ideas from this post for a friend, family member, or even yourself. Without further ado, here’s the 2019 Christmas gift guide:
This wreath is adorable, don’t you agree? Any paper crafter would love to make this festive wreath and hang it on their door for Christmas!
These mini houses are as easy to assemble as they are cute. And they’re seriously cute.
I’m not sure gorgeous is quite a strong enough word to describe this wreath. Just look at those roses!
If you know someone who adores cats and crafts…they’ll adore this! It’s so, so cute.
I’m obsessed with Christmas lights and 3D paper things, and this is the perfect melding of the two. If you know anyone who feels the same, they’re sure to love this kit!
Any paper crafter would absolutely love making this gorgeous, gorgeous shadowbox kit! This shadowbox design could be displayed all year long. If you have a second, check out Chipola Studio’s entire Etsy shop. You’ll be amazed!
Could these crepe paper roses be any more beautiful? Clearly, the correct answer is no, no they could not. Lia Griffith designs amazing flowers, and this kit is no exception!
Price: $349.00 (sale price)
In my opinion, the Cricut Maker is the ultimate cutting machine. Included in the long list of materials it can cut are wood, felt, fabric, crepe paper and more. It can even engrave and deboss with additional tips! I love, love my Maker – the possibilities are truly endless for what it can make!
Price: $199.00 (limited time sale)
I own the older version of this machine, and it’s been absolutely amazing for the nearly 3 years I’ve owned it. It’s perfect for any scrapbooker, paper crafter, or anyone interested in decorating things with vinyl. It’s much more affordable than the Maker machine, but still packed with features and possibilities!
This score board allows you to easily create custom envelopes, gift boxes, and more. An absolutely invaluable tool for paper crafts, especially if you don’t have a cutting machine.
If this mini paper typewriter calendar isn’t adorable, I don’t know what is! This super cute craft is a digital download you print yourself and assemble. SkyGoodies has the absolute coolest paper goodies in their Etsy shop – check out all their products here!
Ok, I saw yet another amazing printable from SkyGoodies – this fairy tale book above – and I had to include it too! Like the typewriter, this is a project you’ll need to print yourself. Words can’t describe how cute this is!
General Craft Gifts
Loom knitting is so fun! One of the things that makes it so great is that it requires no prior experience or knowledge of knitting. It’s an easy, fun hobby for kids and adults alike – plus you’ll end up with beautiful hats to wear and give!
Embroidery is extremely popular as of late, and it’s a great skill to learn. This beautiful kit by TheCraftsZoo will get you started right away with these beautiful designs!
Price: $18.29 (current sale)
I own this kit, but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. This would be a really fun gift for anyone interested in illustration, printmaking, or design. There is so much beautiful block printed art out there!
I have always wanted to try a candle making kit, and I think that it would be a great gift for anyone interested in arts and crafts! This one has great reviews and looks perfect for beginners.
Similar to candle making, a soap making kit would be a fun gift for creative people!
Price: $20.96 (current sale)
Polymer clay is super fun for both kids and adults alike. Sculpey is my favorite brand of polymer clay, and this set gives you lots of different colors to work with!
Crepe paper flowers are incredibly fun to make, and look so beautiful when displayed in your home. Lia Griffith has some of the best paper flower tutorials out there, and this book includes 30 of them!
Tiffanie Turner makes truly incredible and lifelike paper flowers! I’m a long time follower of her on Instagram (you can check her account out here) and am amazed by her work. In this book, you can learn how she makes her beautiful creations!
I own this book and it is a wonderful resource filled with beautiful projects! This would be an amazing gift for anyone who loves paper or paper cutting.
That’s it for my 2019 Christmas gift guide! I’d love to hear your thoughts, and if you have a fun, crafty gift idea you’d like to share – feel free to comment below!
