Gifts for makers

Gifts for makers – I have compiled a list of things makers would love to get as gifts. First, I have a few gifts for makers made by other makers. A few people I have been following on Instagram for a while have great products! Second, I have a few gift options available through Amazon (most of them have Prime 2-day shipping available). These are great quick buys if you are running low on time! Lastly, I have a few self-care gift ideas for fellow Mama Makers!

Gifts for Makers – Quick Buys on Amazon

Here are a few smaller items that I think are an investment and would be appreciated by any maker! They are available through Amazon and most of them with Prime 2-day shipping! Click on the pictures to buy!

This Vintage Embroidery Scissor is super sharp and looks amazing.

The most sturdy retractable tape measure I have bought to date – Singer Pro Series Retractable Tape Measure!

A couple of great books I would recommend are The Ultimate Knitting Book by Vogue and The Tunisian Crochet Workshop by Michelle Robinson.

The Ultimate Knitting Book by Vogue is pretty much like an encyclopedia of knitting and how to design knitwear. It includes so much valuable information whether you’re starting off or an advanced knitter!

The Tunisian Crochet Workshop by Michelle Robinson is a great starter book for learning Tunisian Crochet and includes some fun projects. More than that, it is so colorful and fun. Honestly, this book just makes me happy every time I look at it.

Blocking Mats by Humble Crafter – I bought these blocking mats a while ago and I thought it was a great set because it came with 1 retractable measuring tape and 1 box of T-pins.

Knitter’s Pride Knit Blockers – These blocking pins are sturdy are amazing

Clover Amour Hooks – I’ve heard a lot about these hooks. They have a soft grip so they are ergonomic and will allow you to crochet for long periods of time.

Knit Picks Yarn Ball Winder – I have heard really great things about this yarn ball winder!

Gifts for Makers – Specifically for Mama Makers

One of the best gifts for makers, especially mama makers, is the gift of TIME. If you know a fellow mama maker who lives close by – spend some time with her kids while she works. Treat her to a day off by gifting her a spa session or manicure and pedicure. If you’re not able to do that, you can gift her some self-care items. I think this is something I have been forgetting to do lately and sometimes simple gifts can act as a reminder. Here are a few of my favorites:

My favorite hand lotion – Glysomed Hand Lotion – I apply it right before sleeping and it does wonders. I wake up with super soft hands! You can find it on Amazon by clicking the link below.

Alternatively, I love any Bath and Body Works Body Butter

My favorite mask – Mask of Magnanimity from Lush Cosmetics. Yes, the same one that turns me into “Oscalagrouch” as Bubs says =). This mask always makes me feel so refreshed like I have had a long nap and am ready to take on the world!

Lastly, we all need more yarn in our lives, amirite? You can grab a gift card from JoAnnMichaels, or an LYS!
