Gifts for Sewing Enthusiasts
Here are some of the best gifts for the sewing lovers in your life! From a lovely new sewing machine to cute mugs and practical pin cushions for their craft room. I've got you covered, no matter what your budget is.
How sweet are these wooden spool pin cushions? This personalised gift is not only thoughtful but super practical. Topped with a pretty floral Liberty London fabric, this is sure to be loved among sewers.
A highly desired tool of crafters. The Cricut Maker 3 can cut out crafting materials, including fabric. It has many uses, including the ability to print vinyl labels to iron onto sewing projects like tote bags or to use as clothing labels. This tool is the perfect gift for all sewing lovers in your life!
Personalised gifts are always considered thoughtful. This sewing journal is lovely for sewers to jot down sewing plans and ideas. Sometimes ideas can be lost on bits of paper or sewing patterns. Having a dedicated book is a great way to avoid misplacing them.
Speaking from experience, a mug with a lid is a must in any crafting room. I have spilt many coffees on my fabric, so a cover is essential. This pretty floral mug has a lid, and the insulated sides will keep drinks warm while the creativity flows. No one likes drinking cold tea!
Who else forgets to stay hydrated while sewing or being creative? I used to be terrible, but since purchasing my Hydro Flask water bottle, I remember to keep drinking water while sewing. A drink bottle eliminates the risk of water spilling on patterns or fabric!
I'm a big fan of planning my sewing projects, which helps me remember ideas or moments of inspiration. A pretty, inspiring journal is the perfect place to write down my thoughts. These Liberty London notebooks have a beautiful embroidered cover making them appropriate for sewing enthusiasts.
With so many different sewing needles, losing track of what's what can be easy. This pin cushion is marked with varying needle types and sizes, so more time can be spent sewing, not sorting out needles!
This wooden sewing kit includes all the essentials to start sewing. If you're looking for an encouraging gift to give someone interested in sewing as a new hobby, why not encourage them with this thoughtful box of sewing supplies?
I didn't have a rotary cutter for years, but it changed how I approached sewing when I finally treated myself to one. I now find cutting out smaller projects more enjoyable, encouraging me to get into quilting.
This set has all the tools needed to start using a rotary cutter and comes in three pretty colours, pink, blue and purple.
This wooden sewing box is a lovely place to store sewing supplies, fabric or patterns. Suppose it's a new hobby. A storage box is usually last on a sewer's list to buy. You could fill this with sewing tools or snacks for eating while sewing!
If you are sending a gift from a distance, maybe consider a digital sewing pattern that can be emailed to your loved one. My popular Camille top sewing pattern is loved amongst the sewing community and is a great beginner sewing project that anyone can make.
A spool organiser is brilliant for those with limited sewing supplies space. Many holders are wide and require lots of room, but this nifty device utilises height and rotates 360 degrees—the perfect way to store threads without them getting all tangled together.
A good quality pair of fabric shears can't go amiss. These Gingher shears are not only affordable but widely loved throughout the sewing community for their durability. You could pair these with a pin cushion and a set of pins.
This excellent book is filled with essential garments for women who want to make clothing that fits and that they love to wear. It includes all the sewing patterns, easy-to-follow instructions and lots of inspiration—a perfect gift for someone who has everything.
This Bohin wrist pincushion is on my wish list. It's handy to wear while sewing or cutting out material, so you aren't constantly looking for pins. It makes it easy to pull pins out and pop them straight into the pin cushion rather than all over the floor. Plus, it's pretty.
This gift may seem strange, but with the rise in digital sewing patterns, a printer is essential for any sewer. This affordable option comes with 6 months of free ink, which equals 700 pages per month, perfect for printing lots of sewing patterns of.
How to Make These Sewing Gifts Thoughtful
There are many ways to make these gifts more thoughtful for your loved ones. Try combining a few of these sewing items in a pretty gift basket or a storage container to add extra functionality to your gift. If you are going to give one of the expensive items like a sewing machine, wrap it up in brown paper and add a beautiful satin ribbon. Little touches go a long way!
