Let’s jump right in…

Gifts for makers and creatives can be as easy as buying them more supplies for the craft of their choice.

For example, my cousin loves to draw, color, and sketch. So chances are, if I give her some new sketch pads and charcoal pencils she’ll be a happy girl.

If the person you’re shopping for likes to fix things around the house and are handy with a hammer then maybe a new set of tools would be appreciated.

If they like to refurbish furniture, then maybe some new furniture paints would be welcomed.

You get the idea!

Other ideas, if you want to get more creative with your gift is to pay for some class sessions or find a monthly subscription box for their specific niche.

Gifts For Makers

Sewing machine

It seems like sewing machines are making a come back right along side many homemaker skills that have been forgotten for so long.

If you don’t want to jump right in with a sewing machine, gift them a class to learn how to sew if they don’t know how but would like to learn. You can find free or very inexpensive sewing classes in your community by visiting the website of your local 4-H extension office. Or Udemy.com has online paid classes they can take in the comfort of their own living room.
