My family and I really enjoy arts and crafts. We appreciate learning a new skill and using it to make gifts for others (and ourselves). With the holidays approaching, I wanted to share some of the craft kits that have proven to be a big hit in our house. Craft kits make great gifts for tweens and teens and can help foster creativity.

Craft Kit Gift Ideas

Note that prices are current at the time of this post, but are subject to change at any time.

We R Memory Keepers Wick Candle Kit
 – $78.79 (reg. $100)

While this kit is a little pricey, it provides a super safe way to make candles. There is no need for wax pouring or use of the stove or microwave.  This kit includes 3 lbs of Paraffin Wax, 72 inches of cotton wick, 3 candle rubber stoppers, pigment (red, yellow, blue, white), 3 candle molds with base, and a color mixing chart.

If you aren’t concerned about pouring the wax then check out this #1 selling kit on Amazon that is less than $30.


VENCINK Bookbinding Kit – $20.99 (reg. $30)

This kit has everything you need to get started on your first bookbinding project. My mother-in-law gave this to one of my girls when she was 13, and she learned a skill that she still uses! She loves to make journals and books for friends. There’s nothing quite like learning a skill that very few people know how to do!!


Thrilez Resin Kit for Beginners – $29.99 (reg. $30)
-$5 off digital coupon

This resin kit was a huge hit with my 17 year old last Christmas. She’s made numerous earrings, keychains and more! Resin crafts also sell great at local craft fairs, so your future entrepreneur can even get a head start on that resume!


CraftZee Soap Making Kit – $59.99
This is another kit that a teenager got a few years ago and still uses to make gifts for people! It includes everything you need to get started, from making soap bars to wrapping and labeling them. Enjoy the added benefits of fragrance oils while you work!


Intermediate Screen Printing Kit – $54.99

Bring your artwork to life with screen printing. Easily print custom t-shirts and home decor. This kit is for those ready to tackle both the Drawing Fluid/Screen Filler and the Photo Emulsion methods of screen printing. If you prefer vinyl, this beginner screenprinting kit can be used with any vinyl cutting machine.


ArtWorx Calligraphy & Hand Lettering Kit – $22.50

Transform your handwriting into a modern work of art. This set includes four beautifully crafted fountain pens, each with a unique nib size. It also includes 16 ink cartridges in black and a variety of vibrant colors. Beginners can quickly master the art of calligraphy.


Wood Burning Kit – $35.99

Wood burning is another great skill that produces beautiful gifts. Christmas ornaments, cutting boards and wooden spoons are great ideas for beginners. If you grab a calligraphy kit with it, you can combine both skills.


CULETCRAFT Macrame Kit for Beginners – $29.99

Macrame is a great stress-relieving hobby! This kit comes with everything you need to create 15 basic macrame projects, including an adorable hanging owl, Christmas tree wall decor and plant hangers. Follow the step-by-step printed booklet to take you from beginner to pro!

This kit includes all the materials you need to make 10 projects, a storage box, and an easy-to-follow colorful instruction booklet.


Wobbles Crochet Kits – $27.99 (reg. $34.99)

These are the best kits for beginners to learn a new skill plus make an adorable animal! I gave one to each of my girls last year, in the end most of them learned a new skill and I refreshed my skills on a bunny and frog for the two younger girls.  The kit also includes video instructions that are very easy to follow!

These 10 craft kits are great for new teens and adults to learn a new skill. My family loves to make gifts for others with these fun kits.
