11 Craft Kits Perfect for Gifting

Hunting gift ideas for crafters? Help them try a new medium with these craft kids perfect for gifting! Craft kits mean they don't have to buy any supplies or hunt down tutorials, it is all included. Check out these modern craft kits and get shopping! #craftkit

Craft kits are such a fun gift to give; not only do they get to make something but they don’t have to dig around and shop for any of the supplies! They’re a great way to try out a new hobby, especially if someone on your gift list has been saying “I’ve always wanted to try crochet/sewing/embroidery” or talking about how they wish they had something to do, other than scroll on their phone, while they relax at night. If you really wanted to be generous, you could gift a craft kit with a little coupon for free babysitting, if they have kids, too! All of these craft kits are off Etsy, so not only are you giving the gift of creativity, you’re supporting small, handmade businesses as well.

With about a month and a half left until Christmas, you have plenty of time to stitch up a few ornaments with my free DIY embroidered snowflake ornament pattern! Sewn with a simple back stitch, this would be a perfect first embroidery project for someone who has always been wanting to try it out. I added sequins and seed beads just for fun, since I had a bunch left over from this ornament that I made last year.

I designed this as a part of the 2017 Ornament Exchange & Blog Hop! This year, there are 47 amazing bloggers participating in the exchange. The rules of the challenge were simple: be partnered with a fellow blogger, create a handmade ornament for $15 or under, create a tutorial, and ship the ornament off to a new home.
