34 Best Gifts For CraftersVIA MERCHANT

We all know someone who can spend days lost in a sewing project or whittle away hours at the easel. And when special occasions roll around, pay homage to your artsy friends—and their hobby—with these gifts for crafters.

As a crafter myself, I love trying the latest and greatest. When I’m not scouring TikTok for my next project, I’m curled up on the couch with my trusty cross-stitch hoop or crochet hook. And, in a true giving spirit, I found top-notch gift ideas for quilters, painters, fiber artists, jewelry makers and every crafter in between.

From a social media-approved punch needling kit to the crème de la crème of crafting gadgets (aka a Cricut machine), these gifts for crafters are all guaranteed to make the recipient smile! Oh, and if you’re shopping for yourself? These gifts double as pick-me-ups. Go ahead and treat yourself to a little crafting R&R—I won’t tell.
