10 Awesome Gifts for DIYers, Upcyclers and Crafters – Plus Upcycling Book Giveaway!

gift ideas for upcycler, DIYer, crafterI think a big part of the holiday stress is thinking of something appropriate to get the people you care about. It’s especially difficult when that person is a DIYer, crafter and/or upcycler. What do you get someone who just wants to create stuff? As someone who is all of those things, I’ve put together a list, with the help of Amazon Associates. Afterall, it is cyber week!

Stocking Stuffers

1.O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Cream, 3.4 oz. – $6.99: active hands need soothing and this creams comes highly recommended with 4.5 stars out of 869 reviews. Give the gift of happy hands and maybe even throw in a complimentary hand massage from you!

2.FordEx Group 300lm Mini Cree Led Flashlight Torch Adjustable Focus Zoom Light Lamp$3.99: Here are a few highlights – it uses only 1 AA battery; its pocket clip is extremely useful, and works to keep it from rolling better than other anti-roll designs; its adjustable focus beam can go from a very wide beam to a spot light.

3.Mod Podge CS11302 Original 16-Ounce Glue, Matte Finish $6.38: Did you think I wasn’t going to suggest Mod Podge? There is so much you can do with it that, put in the hands of someone creative, they’ll be instantly inspired!

Casual Gifts

4. Art Advantage Oil and Acrylic Brush Set, 24-Piece $14.99 This beautiful set of brushes comes in a canvas, roll-up case – very authentic. It comes with both flat and round brushes for each size.

5.AccuSharp 001 Knife Sharpener $9.49 A Reduction Rebel values improving things rather than replacing them, making this less than $10 gift a perfect fit.

6.ArtBin Yarn Drum 12-inches round by 12-3/4-inches high, Periwinkle $20 This is just one idea for a stylish, functional storage solution for craft supplies. You may love this…or you may want to browse around. I’m just saying you can’t go wrong with organizers.

I Love You! Gifts (these are a little over-the-top, but sometimes you have to go big)

7.Dremel Variable Speed Rotary Tool Kit $89.66 I’m going to show, rather than tell with this one. The photo below is one of the many, many things you can do with this special tool.

8.SINGER Stylist Award-Winning Sewing Machine $164.99 Wait til you see all the different stitches this baby can do! It also comes with an instructional video. And I’m sure you caught the “Award-Winning” part in the title. Yeah. This rocks!

9. Kreg Jig Master System $132.20 This is a serious woodworking tool with high-quality features. Basically an upcycler’s dream tool. I’m talking pocket holes galore.

10.Cuttlebug Cricut Embossing Folder Bundle $56.99 This is on major sale, for starters. Second, it has a solid 5 stars. Last, it’s really a fun splurge…really.

    I’m one of those women who’d love to have someone say “I love you” with a Dremel tool or a Kreg jig kit. Lots of good ideas here–all of them useful and not likely to get shoved to the back of the drawer and become next year’s white elephant gift. Thanks for the ideas.

      I just checked and the Dremel price just dropped to $79 with free shipping on Amazon : )
