The creative types, the Renaissance men and women, the artsy-fartsy crowd… We all know them (some of us ARE them)! And while they have a million hobbies and projects on the go, sometimes they can be tricky to shop for. What do you get someone who has everything? The answer (which their spouse/child/parent will just love) is… a new hobby!

In this gift guide, I’ve rounded up my favourite items from Etsy for creative types. The type of people who are always trying something new or who always have a sewing/crafting/woodworking/pottery project on the go.

Gift Guide: Gifts for Creative Types (plus a GIVEAWAY!) |

By the way, don’t forget to check out my other two gift guides: nerdy gifts and gifts for stylish women (there’s a jewelry giveaway with that one!)

Oh! And did I mention there’s another GIVEAWAY this week?? Everybody’s favourite thing! But first, my top picks for the artsy-fartsy people on your list.

I’ve always wanted to try needle felting… And now one of YOU, dear readers, will get to try it out and tell me how it goes! Helga, of the Etsy shop fibreartistry, has generous provided one of her everything-you-need-to-get-started needle felting kits to give away to one lucky reader! Thank you so much, Helga!

I did a brief stint as a knitter. It wasn’t for me, but I know a whole lot of more patient people who would LOVE this knitting bag wristlet! How handy is that??

This next idea is just really cool: all-natural dyes that can be used on different fabrics or yarns.

Stamps and stamp pads make fabulous and non-break-it-by-the-next-morning stocking stuffers for kids and adults alike. I really like these handmade ones!

And the larger version of a stamp: the patterned roller! DIY mavens, take note.

A handmade guitar strap is a beautiful gift for the guitar hero on your list. I love this one in a herringbone print, which would be great for a woman or a man.

What to get the baker on your list who has every decorating tip and cookie sheet known to man? Why, some awesome cookie cutters, of course! You can never have too many William Shakespeare cookie cutters. (Plus, it’s great for any lovers of the Bard’s works!)

Beading kits are great options for the young ladies on your list who are hard to shop for. When in doubt, go simple and classic, with a hint of edge.

Genius idea for the kids (or big kids) on your list who live far away: printable house and play sets! These next items are all digital download (although some are available ready-to-use). Simply purchase the PDF, print it out on cardstock, and assemble! So cool.
