2013 Gift Guide: 20 DIY Gifts for Your Favorite Crafter

The best thing about your crafter friend is that she always makes you the best gifts. So when it comes time to returning the favor, give a gift that will keep her (or him!) busy for hours. While I love DIY kits (and some of my favorites are included here), I think the best gift for a crafter is supplies. Beautiful yarn, sparkly glitter, felt balls, metal stamps or fringe. And just maybe, you’ll end up with some of the resulting crafting.  –Amy

    Thank you

    Great list. Doing a one-day workshop with your crafter friend is also a great idea. I’ve love a gift of glass-blowing, welding, even cooking.
