2018 Etsy Holiday Gift Guide for Craft Enthusiasts

Are you wondering what kind of Christmas gift to get for the crafters on your gift list? Or perhaps you’re a crafter yourself, and you’re working on making gifts for your inner circle. Either way, I invite you to check out this Etsy holiday gift guide for craft enthusiasts. The following items are ones you’ll definitely want to know about:

Czech Glass Buttons

If the crafter on your gift list is drawn to pretty, shiny baubles, consider giving Czech glass buttons as a gift. This is a gift that might appeal to crafters who work in a variety of media — anyone who sews, quilts, knits, crochets or does mixed media art can usually find good uses for buttons.

Be aware that some sellers sell single buttons. If you’re gifting Czech glass buttons to a crafter who makes garments, it’s ideal to find a matching set of multiple buttons — enough to button up a quilted jacket, knitted cardigan sweater or similar project.

You can buy one-of-a-kind dichroic glass pendants similar to this one on Etsy. Independent artists -- like those who sell on Etsy -- are the best sources I know of for buying these pendants. Here you can see the finished necklace I made using a dichro glass pendant I bought online from an independent artist.

Zip Dry Paper Glue

Zip Dry paper glue is a fantastic stocking stuffer type gift for anyone who enjoys paper crafts. It dries perfectly clear, so it’s great for beginning paper crafters who haven’t yet perfected the art of flawless glue application.

Silver beads are stylish yet timeless. They, too, make gifts that will have lasting value, particularly if you choose high quality sterling silver beads.
