Great Christmas Gift Series: Shopping for Crafters

 

Welcome to DealDash’s “Great Christmas Gifts.” series –  If you’re a person who struggles every year trying to think of gifts to get your family and friends, this series is for YOU!

Today we will be talking about crafters. For the uninformed, a crafter is someone who does any sort of craft, including sewing, knitting, scrapbooking, crochet, papercrafting, or even newer types of crafting such as using a 3-D printer. Think about the people in your life such as your wife, mother, daughter, Grandmother, or even your husband, brother, or friend. Do any of these people talk about the crafty side of life? If so, I have some great suggestions of what you might want to get them for Christmas.

Knitting Machine Set for Kids

If you’re trying to think about what to get a crafty child you might want to think about getting them a knitting machine. Knitting machines are very cool, you can produce a knit item very quickly without too much effort involved. Basically, you thread the yarn (which is included with the particular machine that is up for auction on DealDash) through a circle of hooks, turn the crank, and knit material is produced! It’s super easy to make a scarf, and when you get more comfortable with the machine you can even make hats and sweaters! If you’d like to check out the knitting machine for kids (age 6+) on DealDash check out this link.

If you’re looking for a present for an older crafter, say age 13+, you really can’t go wrong with a sewing machine! Even crafters who are more into knitting or scrapbooking could probably still use a sewing machine. For example, they might need to sew together pieces of knit fiber or even sew together paper for making scrapbook layouts. Sewing machines are awesome! Some non-crafters might say that I’m nuts, but I have no less than 3 sewing machines set up at one time, sometimes even more. If you are looking for something even more advanced than a regular sewing machine you might look into embroidery machine. An embroidery machine can be extremely useful if the person you are giving a gift to enjoys quilting or making personalized items. You can find both regular sewing machine and embroidery machines on DealDash at this link.

The last item that I am going to suggest for the crafty person in your life is a cutting machine. There are a few different brands of this type of machine, but they all do very similar things. These cutting machines can do a lot of different things, they of course can cut paper to make scrapbooking layouts, but they can do so much more! They can cut out stencils, vinyl stickers, t-shirt transfers, and even fabric. It’s very easy to design a project and cut it out in one sitting, it’s great for people who like instant gratification. These machines tend to be rather expensive, so my advice would be to check them out on DealDash. You can find one at this link here.

 

Thanks for reading, and I hope that I gave you some good ideas that you can put into practice for your holiday shopping. As a crafter myself, I would be overjoyed to receive any of these gifts for Christmas this year. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
