Some of you may know that this past year I got married to the man of my dreams. Well, obviously, marriage comes with a set of new family members (and mine are AMAZING, might I add). I’m the kind of person who has a really hard time telling people what to get me for Christmas, birthdays, or any other gift-giving holidays. Now that I have more family to answer to, it’s even harder! And, of course, they won’t take no for an answer! So I did some deep thinking and came up with a list of things that I would LOVE to receive and I hope you love them too! Without further ado, here is the Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Makers of ALL kinds!

Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Makers
Many many things are online based nowadays and these two companies have the BEST deals for many different crafts or lifestyles. Even if you don’t use them as a gift idea, you should check them out for yourself and they will almost always have something that you’ll be interested in.
Handmade with Love Ultimate Bundle
This is going to be the first gift that I mention because I am SO excited to share it with you!
This specific bundle, Handmade with Love, includes 200+ patterns, projects, and step-by-step picture tutorials for practically ANY type of crafter. If you’re buying for someone who you know is a maker or someone who just enjoys crafting but hasn’t found their passion yet, this bundle WILL have something for them. You could be contributing to helping them find their calling!
This bundle includes patterns and tutorials for crocheting, knitting, quilting, sewing, embroidering, cross stitching, and more!
All in all, this bundle has $1,011.16 worth in products, but it only costs $29.97! That’s cheaper than half the items on this list! How is that possible? I don’t know, but it is completely true and COMPLETELY worth it!
Is it a scam?
Absolutely not. I can personally tell you that I have bought several bundles from Ultimate Bundles and they have NEVER disappointed me. Specifically, I purchased the Genius Bloggers Toolkit this year and I was astounded by how much information was included in this bundle. I have learned SO much about SO many different things. If you’re still not sure, click the link below to find out more about them!
*The Handmade with Love Super Bundle is currently not available. However, a great alternative would be their Herbs and Essential Oils Super Bundle!*
Bluprint, previously known as Craftsy, is an amazing site that features online classes, kits, patterns, and tutorials for all different types of crafters. Some include; crochet, knitting, paper crafting, sewing, art, photography, baking, and even cooking! For Christmas this year, they put together a section filled with Stocking Stuffer ideas! So go check them out and I promise you won’t be disappointed. There are SO many gift ideas to choose from!
Gift Card to their Favorite Craft Store
This is the gift idea I suggested to a lot of my family members because I am CONSTANTLY at the craft store or shopping online. I may not know what EXACTLY I want right this second, but I’m telling you I will in about a day or two and that gift card will help me out immensely. And I can guarantee that’s how most makers think 😉
Online Stores to consider:
Physical Stores to consider:
Etsy Shop Items
I absolutely love all things Etsy. I guess that’s obvious since I, myself, am a maker so I love to support fellow makers! Plus, each item is made by someone who is devoted to what they’re doing and each piece is handmade with a lotta lotta love.
Makers Gonna Make Necklace by DanielleJoyDesigns
This necklace comes on an 18″ silver plated chain and features a horizontal bar with 4 different sides. The example in the picture shows a necklace that has four popular makers sayings such as: #girlboss, dream big, hustle, #makersgonnamake. However, if you want to make it your own she encourages you to personalize it to whatever you want it to say!
While I was browsing her shop I realized that she also has a deal going on for spend $20, save 10%!
Sip & Stitch Mug by bundlehandmade
I personally collect coffee mugs because I am a coffee ADDICT so when I saw this I fell in love! I love the way she described this mug in her shop so I have to include it because I couldn’t describe it any better!
“This 11oz ceramic mug is perfect for mornings spent with coffee and crochet, or evenings spent cozied up with hot chocolate and your latest WIP. Get to sippin’ and stitchin’, girl. You can even fill your mug with beer – I won’t tell. ;)”
Hooker 4 Life Shirt by ALittleLeafy
All I have to say about this shirt is, Holy cow, I wish I saw this tank a week ago when I was sending out my Christmas List! This one was a last minute find and I just had to share it. I already love seeing crafting related clothing, but nothing has driven me more to a purchase than this ridiculously cute tank!
I don’t know about you, but Amazon is my FAVORITE. I think my mom and I alone could probably keep them in business. We both have Amazon Prime and I can’t tell you how amazing it is with their 2 day FREE shipping. All of the items I’ve listed are available via Amazon Prime! If you aren’t signed up and you’d like to give it a shot or find out more information, you can sign up for a 30 day FREE Trial and if you’re not satisfied you can cancel it after the holidays!
If you’re not interested in Amazon Prime, that’s okay too! Just be sure to check that it says “Arrives before Christmas” before you order your item if you’re purchasing it as a Christmas gift. 😉
Craft books are a great idea because there are many many crafting books out there that cater to every type of crafter. Also, as amazing as Pinterest is with their amazing tutorials, patterns, etc., you could spend HOURS on there pinning instead of actually creating. Having a physical book in front of them will get them to learning and creating even quicker! Here are a few I found that I have either tried myself or have really great reviews!
Am I the only one who has multiple balls of yarn spread across my craft room floor?! Come to think of it… I really need to clean that room. Who couldn’t use some storage for their crafts, because let’s face it, ALL crafters get a little supply obsessed and buy WAY more than they have room for. Help your loved one get a little more organized with this 12 drawer rolling organizer! They’ll be sure to thank you!
I know this post is geared towards crafters in general, but this one is specifically for crocheters. Clover hooks are on the pricier side of hooks, but there’s a reason for that. The way these hooks are polished helps the yarn glide easily along the hook with no snagging. It also helps relieve pain in those who tend to cramp easily or have carpal tunnel. While the price may deter certain makers from purchasing them, it give you the perfect gift idea!
I love yarn bowls. I was gifted two of these this past year for Mother’s Day and I love them! After you wind up your skeins with your Ball Winder (which would make a good gift too!), just place it in the bowl and get to making! These bowls make it easy to keep your yarn in one place instead of bouncing all around the couch and rolling on the floor. Can you tell that I’m speaking from experience?
Which one is your favorite gift idea? Did this Ultimate Gift Guide for Makers help you decide on what to get your loved one this year? Let me know!
