So here's the deal. I'm not a crafter per se, but I own a lot of crafting supplies! I don't really create too many things, but I love the idea of it. I'm super organized and love writing and making things look pretty. That I can do. So when it came to putting together a gift guide for crafters, I definitely had some ideas on it, but needed expert help to put some items in here for the true crafter. My friend Alana was just the right person for the job!
Alana owns a cutting machine, she has a decal making business and she is definitely a crafter! She graciously helped me put together a great list of items any crafter would love. This has been my favorite gift guide to put together, I hope you enjoy it!
a place for everything
This little storage cart is perfect for keeping crafting supplies. Yarn, glue scissors, paper, you name it! It's got wheels, so you can easily move it from place to place. It's definitely a must have for crafters!
cut almost any material
The Sihouette Cameo 3 is a cutting machine with so many possibilities. Alana owns it and makes amazing things with it. She makes beautiful custom decals out of vinyl. The Silhouette can cut over 100 materials including vinyl, cardstock, paper, and fabric! Alana highly recommends it!

a beautiful, easy to use, comprehensive planner
I love my Happy Planner! I got one at the end of last year and it helped me stay organized all year! I love how beautiful they are, but most of all how sturdy and high quality they are. There are countless add-ons you can buy, or you can keep it simple and use it as it comes. I already got my planner for 2018 and I can't wait to start using it! Here's my post I wrote about my first Happy Planner if you want to learn more about it.
pretty up any planner with this decorative tape
Last year, I had no clue what Washi Tape was or what it was used for. Now, I own more washi tape than I care to admit! It's perfect for decorating my Happy Planner! Washi Tape makes a cute gift for any crafter!
washi tape needs a home
If you have Washi Tape, you have to have cute storage for it! If you give a mouse a cookie, right? I love these little containers. They let me see exactly what Washi Tape I have in there, and they keep all my tape rolls neatly organized! Perfect small gift for a crafter!
these sticker packs will take a planner to the next level
There are a ton of planner stickers you can choose from. Last year I purchased the "Mom" pack and the "Productivity" pack. They were perfect for me and I used the stickers all year to mark events and appointments on my planner. If your crafter is a planner owner, these make for an awesome gift!
so many fun colors and a joy to write with
If you've been following my blog for a while, or you know me at all, you know I have a slight obsession with pens! I carry at least 10 in my purse, always! As far as pens go, these Paper Mate Flair pens have been my favorite for a long time! They write so deliciously! If you know pens, you know what I mean! They have now come out with so many fun colors. These would definitely make any crafter a happy crafter!
brilliant colors that boldly stand out
Every crafter needs a big pack of colorful Sharpie markers. There's always something to mark! Love all the different colors and tip sizes Sharpie now offers. As a pen and marker hoarder, I would definitely enjoy receiving a pack of these.
wrangle even the most pervasive pen obsessions
Speaking of pens, and how many I own, I need this storage container. It can be used for pens, markers, and colored pencils. It has room for tons of pens and it really makes a great gift for any crafter or pen lover. Also, there are a lot of cute designs to choose from. Can't go wrong with this one!
if a crafter can dream it, the Cricut can cut it
The new Cricut Maker is apparently the momma of all cutters. It's a little on the pricier side of things, so it's a perfect gift for a very special crafter in your life! Or you could just gift it to yourself! It cuts an impressive amount of materials. It even cuts leather! You can learn more about all the possibilities with Cricut Maker by clicking below and watching the video. By the way, that craft room at the beginning of the video has me all googly eyed!
make crafting easier
The Cricut BrightPad is the perfect companion for the Cricut cutting machines. It illuminates projects to make tracing, weeding, and quilting easier. It is very lightweight and portable. It's a great gift that will make crafting easier for anyone!
everything the crafter needs to get started with the Cricut
This Cricut Basic Tool Set is a perfect addition for any of the Cricut machines. Definitely a must-have, and will be much appreciated by the Cricut owner!
the personal DIY cutting machine that does it all
The Cricut Explore Air 2 is more affordable than the Maker, and it can do so many amazing things! It cuts over 100 kinds of materials. The colors it comes in, oh the colors it comes in! I've been tempted to get one just like the one pictured here. So many pretty projects that could be done with this machine!
professional results in a small, lightweight & friendly design
The Cricut Easy Press is a pretty cool tool. It makes iron-on projects a breeze. It combines the speed of a heat press with the convenience of a home iron. It allows you to complete your iron-on project in 60 seconds or less!
perfect for a variety of sewing projects
I've always wanted a sewing machine, but let's face it, I can't even sew on a button. It's sad, I know. I did take a Home Ec class in high school, and I did great in the baking part, but not so hot in the sewing semester! Maybe a new sewing machine like this one will help me learn! Not sure I can convince Ryan of that! It does make an awesome gift for those that are slightly more versed at sewing than I am!
the crafter's happy place
When you just can't decide what your crafter wants or needs, a gift card to Hobby Lobby is always a great idea! From decor to crafting it's the happy place for so many of us! You can't go wrong with a gift card from Hobby Lobby!
perfect for sewing project supplies and more
If the crafter in your life loves to sew or crochet, I would definitely go with a gift card from Joann. But that's not all that's available there. It really is a maker's heaven!
the place to fulfill any crafter's desires
I don't think I know any crafter that wouldn't be thrilled with a gift card to Michael's. They have so much awesome stuff!! It's my go to for anything Happy Planner related, so I'm biased. In my opinion, Michael's takes the cake!
