Have you ever wondered what gifts to get a crafter?? I asked a bunch of my crafty friends and we came up with this gifts for craft lovers list!
Do you have some crafters in your life? If you are not a crafty person, you might have no idea what the best gifts to get for crafty friends are.
Since I absolutely love my Cricut, I gave you a list of gift ideas for Cricut users before, but since I know not everyone is a Cricut machine user I wanted to give you some other ideas for great gifts!
I admit I’m a bit of a craft supplies hoarder. It’s hard to pass up great deals on supplies, which is why my craft room is overflowing.
I definitely have my favorite craft supplies, but I wanted this to be a non-biased crafter gift guide, so I reached out to my crafty friends and got their input.
They gave me ideas that I hadn’t even thought of (and now I’ve added them to my list!). So if you are looking for amazing gifts for crafty Moms or just craft lovers in general, I know they’ll love something on this idea list!
You can always check out my Amazon storefront where I have a ton of my favorite craft supplies, Cricut supplies, tumbler supplies, craft blanks, sublimation supplies, and more that would make great gift guides!
Best Gifts to Get a Crafter
Subscription Craft Boxes
Subscription boxes are huge right now and there's a good reason why. They are so fun and exciting when you get one and have no idea what goodies will be in them. It's like Christmas every month!
If you have crafty friends that never know what to make, I think craft boxes would be an awesome gift. Having all the supplies you need in one box and the directions make crafting pretty easy!
I've never tried these subscription services but they get great reviews and they are definitely on my list!
Maker Crate: Craft Subscription Box for Adults & Teens
KiwiCo has a bunch of different types of subscription boxes for all ages including this cool Maker crate!
Pop Shop American Subscription Box
This is another cool DIY craft box. Starting at $30/month which gives the recipient a box full of all the supplies needed to make a great craft. They also offer a bunch of different DIY kits for small projects that are not monthly subscriptions.
Annie's Hook and Needle Club
If you are trying to find the perfect gift for a knitter, then a subscription box full of yarn and patterns to knit and crochet might be an excellent choice!
Not a subscription box anymore, but knit craft boxes are available at KnitPicsks as of 2021.
Craft Supplies from Amazon
The rest of the list is gifts for craft lovers from Amazon. Who doesn't love Amazon with the fast shipping and ease of sitting in your PJs with a glass of wine and shopping?
And if you have absolutely no idea what to get, an Amazon gift card might be the perfect present so they can purchase whatever they want!

Brother Sewing Machine
A new sewing machine was on the list of several of my friends. This is very similar to one I own and I think it works great, even though it's at a lower price range. There are ones a lot more expensive that do a lot more if the price is no object!
Ok, I don't have one of these so I can't attest to how it works, but I hear people talk about them and they sound amazing. A lot of people have businesses based on craft gifts made with a 3D printer.
