Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing the last gift guide in the Holiday Organization series. I thought I’d focus on the crafters in our lives (specifically paper crafters) and what they’d like to see under the tree this year! Clearly every crafter is different, and every craft is different. So I decided to narrow things down a bit to gifts for paper crafters. While the focus of this list is geared towards paper crafters, many of these items would be loved by crafters of all types! As with my other gift guides, all of these gifts are either used and loved by myself, or are currently on my own wishlist for Christmas this year! Let’s dig in, shall we?

Holiday Organization Gift Guide for the Crafter
Oh where to start with the amazing Silhouette? I got my Cameo last year for Christmas, and have fallen so hard in love with it since then! There is nothing this baby can’t do, and it just takes all of my crafty projects to the next level with ease! And Silhouette actually just released the newest version of the Cameo in time for the holidays! This new model features a touchscreen, space to store your various cutting tools and accessories, and other updates!
And if you have been drooling over the Silhouette forever, waiting until that perfect time to snatch one up for yourself, now is that time! The brand new Silhouette is now available in a starter bundle, and it’s on sale! Included in the bundle is an extra mat (trust me, you’ll want it), an extra blade, a metallic pen set, a pick me up tool and Silhouette Studio. Buy the starter bundle now and save $74.96 off the entire package! Get it here.
Crafty Subscription Kit
I have fallen in love with subscription kits. I currently subscribe to Studio Calico’s Project Life kit, and let me tell you, when that little package arrives, it is the happiest day of each month! If you are unfamiliar with subscription kits, they’re fairly easy to understand. Each month you pay a subscription fee (usually around $20-30 depending on the kit and company). Then each month, you receive a ‘kit’ of brand new tools, supplies and general crafty goodness in the mail! It’s like getting your own mini Chrismas once a month :).
There are a ton of subscription kits out there, so do your research to find the ones that are right for you or the crafter you’re shopping for. On my wish list this year is the Scrapbooking kit from Studio Calico, and the Embellishment kit from Freckled Fawn. I’ve been watching their releases each month and have just been dying to get my hands on those kits!
Anyone who has been following my home decor journey knows that I am a huge fan of IKEA. You just can’t beat their prices, and they have some of the cutest things to use in your home! And crafty storage is no exception. The IKEA Raskog has become one of the most coveted items in crafty storage in the past few months, and for good reason. With three different levels of storage, and wheels to make it easily transportable, this cart is a perfect addition to any craft room. It would also be the perfect solution to store and organize craft supplies for those crafters who don’t have a designated craft room. You can see a little of how I use mine here. Get yours here.
I couldn’t make a crafter’s gift guide without including a Project Life kit! Project Life is my craft of choice, and the Blush edition has become my very favorite core kit to work with. The pretty feminine colors, and the fun geometric patterns are so great for making happy, colorful spreads! Project Life kits can also be used for more than just Project Life. I have seen Project Life cards being used in planners, to jot down notes, framed and hung as art and much more! The options are truly endless with these adorable cards. Get it here.
Martha Stewart Circle Cutter
I love using circles in my crafts. I don’t know why, I just find myself always coming back to that shape. I also find myself constantly looking around my home for round objects to trace onto my paper to then cut out. Hardly efficient. This circle cutter from Martha Stewart would make it an absolute breeze to cut all sizes of circles for my every crafty desire! No more tracing and cutting by hand. That Martha always knows exactly what us crafters need! Get it here.
Heidi Swapp Silicone Craft Mat
I have had my eye on this baby since it was first released. Every crafter should have a good craft mat in their tool box! When working with messy supplies like stamping ink, mists or paint, it is an absolute necessity to protect the surface you’re working on. This silicone mat was designed to do just that, and the pretty color and design just adds the icing on the cake! Get it here.
Oh washi tape. The perfect addition to any gift guide! Washi tape was also included in my Gift Guide for Planner Addicts. Pretty much, anyone would be thrilled to find this set of washi tapes under their Christmas tree. Most of all the crafters, who will be able to find 1,001 uses for their ever exanding stash of washi tapes. Because you never can have enough washi tapes. Get it here. (ps. if those colors aren’t doing it for you, search ‘washi tape’ on Amazon and you’ll have more options than you’ll know what to do with!)
And that wraps up the crafters edition of our Holiday Organization Gift Guides! What do you think? Are you asking Santa for anything on this list this year? What would you add to this list?
