Fave Five: Gifts for Experienced Crafters

In case you missed it, I posted gift ideas for new crafters earlier today.  Experienced crafters can be easier or more difficult to shop for.  They know what they like, but they might already have it.  Luckily many crafters tend to me somewhat obsessive, so there is always another gift to give.  Click any of the links below for easy purchase suggestions.

Someone buy me these crafty earrings.
Right now.
Crafty Jewelry: By and large, crafters like to talk about their crafts. Knitting or sewing-themed accessories tell the world your friend is a crafty, crafty woman.

Decadent Supplies: For the knitter or crocheter, sumptious yarns with fancy fibers like silk, alpaca, or even cashmere.  For beaders, precious or semi-precious beads.

needles are beautiful to see and use.
Upgraded Tools: Check your friend's craft tool box.  If she has some tools that are showing their age or if there are some that might be missing.  Last year my mother-in-law gave me beautiful, double-pointed needles that are as lovely as they are functional.  With the gift of tools, you know your friend will think of you as they are crafting throughout the year.

Books and Magazines: One of the many wonderful things about crafting is that there is always something else to learn.  Books can teach advanced techniques and offer inspiration, while magazines have the latest trends and topics.

Storage and Organization: Another trend I've noticed among crafters... their crafts can get a little out of control.  There are many options for boxes, totes, and more to keep crafts organized at home and on the move.  (Note: I wouldn't give this gift to someone I didn't know well.  You don't want anyone to think you're calling them cluttered.)

Craft on!
