Christmas Gifts for Crafters

CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THE CRAFTER

Crafter Christmas Presents

Is your wife or best friend a crafter?  If you are not a diy’er or crafter yourself and are scratching your head on what to get a crafter this year, I am here to help you!

Or maybe you are a crafter and you just want to know what craft things are trending this year- these recommendations should inspire you too!

There are no affiliate links in this post- so keep in mind you’ll need to Google these items or head over to Etsy and search for some of these amazing gift ideas.

House shaped shelves have been popular this year and are a great way for a crafter to display some of their handmade goods in their home or craft space or these shelves are perfect for storage in the craft room.  Actually everything house shaped has been trending this year- so why not add a little house pillow to your home or a house shaped bed if you have a little one.  The simple house frame design takes its influence from the Scandinavian contemporary simple designs. ill be all over the place this year. It will dominate especially in kids products where clouds and raindrops have been key decor pieces in the last few seasons, the pitched roof house is set to join the party.
Paper folding has really improved this year and the new contemporary designs focus on geometric shapes. Many come as kits or printable templates too for the paper crafter.  Now there are wood templates like the one above.  These are also perfect for making your own Christmas ornaments this year or for decorating your own party with some of these stunning designs.
Every crafter needs to get organized so why not pick up a pretty planner! Anything to make 2017 more productive and to plan out craft projects over the year.  Get ready to get organised!
This year the popular patterns have been the palm print or any large tropical looking leafy plant print is what the pineapple was to 2015. Everything palm print to keep you calm!  Don’t forget succulents are huge too!  They are wonderful for the home already made in either felt, paper, or even plastic- or many Etsy shops now offer them as kits to make your own.
This year, for the first time Pantone chose two colors of the year –  light pink and light blue.  If you want to get fancy, the you can call these color names “Rose Quartz” and “Serenity”- whatever name you call them by, these two color shades are ideal for all craft supplies: card stock, fabric, knitting yarn, buttons, and any thing else your crafter may need to stay trendy.
I would love to hear your favorite craft tool or craft trend this year, comment below with your recommendation for craft gifts this 2016 Christmas.
