Southern Savers 2023 Gift Guides | Best Gifts for Crafters or DIYers
Hot Glue Gun
Every crafter needs a hot glue gun! This Gorilla brand hot glue gun has good reviews, heats up quickly, and includes glue sticks.
Black+Decker Cordless Drill
There are so many projects around the house that require drilling. This cordless drill is portable and will delight anyone who loves to do projects!
WORKLION Professional Cutting Mat
Cutting mats are great tools for quilters, sewing projects, calligraphy, and more. This mat includes straight and diagonal lines and is self-healing.
Fiskars Rotary Cutter
If you decided to go for the cutting mat, you’re going to want a rotary cutter to go with it. It’s better for time consuming cutting and more efficient than scissors.
If you’re working on a lot of DIY projects, chances are that you’ll need to saw something. This hand saw cuts 50% faster than conventional saws.
Can-Gun Spray Paint Sprayer 4pk
Every time I’m working with a spray paint can, I get paint all over my fingers and my hands are whatever that color was for days. This can-gun uses a full-grip trigger to make for effortless spraying (and cleaner hands).
Brother Sewing and Quilting Machine
I know that sewing machines are on the pricier end of the products on this list, but there are so many crafters who dream of owning a good one. This Brother sewing machine includes an LCD display, automatic needle threader, an oversized table, and lots more.
Bosch Palm Sander
Sanders are perfect for refinishing furniture. The random orbit action makes for a faster and smoother sanded area.
If you’re a crafter, chances are that you have a lot of random items that don’t really have homes in your house. Storage baskets like these are great for organization (and they’re pretty, too).
We use a step ladder at home all the time. A lot of times we’re using it simply to get items from the top shelf in the pantry or closet, but it’s great for getting to that project that’s just out of reach (hanging curtains, hanging picture frames, etc.).
You can get tons of design and project inspiration from home magazines. There are lots of different ones to choose from, but some of my favorite are Southern Living, Old House Journal, and HGTV.
Do-It-Yourself Stitch People
If you know someone who likes cross-stiching or embroidery, this book would be an amazing gift. It gives instructions for creating personalized gifts that can be endlessly customized.
Watercolor Paint Set
Any painter or wannabe artist will enjoy this watercolor paint set. It’s inexpensive but includes 100 colors and brushes!
Cricut Explore 2 Air Machine Bundle
This is definitely the most expensive item on the list, and may need to be a joint gift, depending on who you’re buying for. But these machines are extremely versatile and could be a gift that will jump start creativity for the crafty person in your life. I have several friends who have used these to start a small side business!
Everything Mary Craft Organizer
I think a lot of spouses would probably like to gift this to the person they love most. It looks like an easy way to keep your supplies organized while still being able to work from any part of your home.
The Complete DIY Manual
The Internet is a great place to find videos and instructions for home projects, but sometimes you just want something you can hold in your hands and flip through. This manual explains how to do all the most critical DIY projects!
Kunminger 40ct Washi Tape
Any crafter will love this huge collection of Washi tape—it’s perfect for scrapbookers, journaling, or just wrapping gifts!
This work light is good for either crafters or those who are doing projects around the house. Make sure you can see every detail of what you’re working on!
Kreg Pocket Hole Jig
This tool is perfect even for amateur woodworkers. It helps you create just the kind of holes you need repairing wooden items or creating your own wooden furniture.
MagnoGrip Magnetic Wristband
This is perfect for a crafter OR a DIYer. No more losing safety pins or nails while you’re working!
