12 Crafty Kits that Make Perfect Christmas Gifts

I’m sure, just like me, you love making and giving handmade gifts for Christmas. But what about giving the gift of handmaking? I get a lot of joy out of the process of creating something, so wouldn’t it be wonderful to share that feeling with a friend or loved one who maybe isn’t so naturally crafty?

I don’t tend to buy kits for my own use as I generally like to make with supplies I have on hand already, but as gifts, craft kits are perfect. They are also a great way to try your hand at a new craft to see if you like it, before you commit to investing in lots of new tools and supplies.

Craft Kits usually contain everything required to make and complete a project, so your gift recipient can not only get started without fuss, they can learn a new skill, and end up with a unique hand-made product they have proudly made themselves. It’s sort of like giving a handmade gift, but you just outsource the making part!

I’ve chosen 12 Craft Kits from Etsy makers that will suit a range of ages, interests and crafting abilities. You are sure to find some great Christmas gift ideas amongst this collection.
