What do you buy the person in your life who can make basically everything themselves? Crafters are famously, well, crafty—meaning they’re always keeping busy with DIY projects and probably have an “idea list” as long as their arm. But no matter how many artistic activities they may have on the go, there’s always room for more. That’s why we’ve curated a list of gift ideas that are sure to spark the imagination of your favorite creators.

From a DIY diorama to a bookbinding kit, there’s plenty of giftable projects that will suit all types of crafters and makers. For textile artists, we’ve included a variety of fun embroidery kits, a soap kit, and even a miniature weaving loom. For nature lovers, why not give a beautiful flower press so they can create their own botanical art? Or for those who love to give handmade gifts, check out the jewelry-making kit, as well as the shrink plastic pin kit that allows you to turn your own illustrations into wearable accessories.
