The 1200+ free craft tutorials here at Fine Craft Guild allow you to create any kind of handmade gifts. However, if you want to complement your handmade gifts with store-bought goodies, here are some well-priced, wonderful gifts for creative people and kids. (& just the right gifts for that one last person on your list).
Top Creative Gifts for Girls
Honestly, I don’t know any girl who would not want an elastic band loom kit to make fantastic bracelets and go up 10 notches in popularity in school because of it. Loom bands are all the rage in both North America and here in the UK.
This Rainbow Loom is the #1 bestselling gift at both Michael’s and Amazon. The loom lets you make bracelets from rubber bands. So cool! Amazon has the best price at$15. Qualifies for free shipping for orders over $35 or Amazon prime. [… more info]
DIY Fashion Headbands are also in the Top 10 Toys. It’s another great creative gift for girls. Again, this is a toy that would suit both a 5 year old as well as a 10 year old, so you can go wrong with it. $15. Perfect gift. [… more info ]
Top Gifts for a Boys
If girly things are not suitable for your boy, then a bestselling Christmas gift toy that would perhaps be more suitable for boys: Elenco Snap Circuits SC-300 Physics Kit. Good for age 8 – 15 years. A bit more expensive at $45.99.
And frankly, I don’t think this is a gift just for boys as I know of some girls who would adore getting this from Santa.
That’s it for the gifts for kids ideas.
More Christmas Gift Ideas
Here is something for us. If you are loyal reader here at the Fine Craft Guild, than you will enjoy making things. So be sure to put a Craftsy- course on your Santa list for yourself. Creative online courses make a great gifts that do not translate in ‘more stuff’ in your home, but rather in better made projects for your home.
There are some really good and popular Craftsy courses and they are having a pre-Christmas sale, so try them out: Save up to 50% on Craftsy Classes 12/21-12/24.
Craftsy Gift Cards are another perfect gift idea if you can’t decide which course to take! But if you want to pick an actual course, consider this very popular sewing class: Online Couture Dress Class or this advanced knitting class: Explorations in Cables, by Patty Lyons. Both courses received 5-star reviews from others who have taken this class. And these are just 2 of many that receive 5 star reviews from class participants. So browse around.
What else can I tell you? For other gift ideas and particularly gifts for adults… oh, it so depends on the nature of the relationship, hobbies and interests of the receiver.
