Arts & Crafts Christmas Gift Guide 2019: 21 Gifts for Crafters, Artists, and the Creative People in your Life!

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:
