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 are 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.

These kits, many of which are curated by independent makers on Etsy, often include everything your crafter will need for the project. From yarn to glue to beads and clay, they'll just need to follow the instructions to create their masterpiece. So, whatever the occasion, let your favorite crafter unleash their creativity and learn something new by checking out this hand-selected list of the best gifts.
