I’ve gathered a variety of craft kits that might appeal to that creative person on your list who has everything but…still would like to learn a craft skill. Check out these 11 Gift Ideas for Creatives.

I do like the idea of ‘experiences’ for gifts. My sister-in-law and her family are taking an incredible trip to Antarctica for Christmas this year! But, if you are looking for ‘experiences’ on a smaller budget, there are so many great kits that offer the experience of knitting, the experience of growing a bonsai tree, or the experience of making jewelry.

Some of these are affiliate links and I will earn a small commission off of the sale of these products, but the price you are charged is not affected. You can see my full disclosure policy here.

These Craft Kits Would Make Great Gifts for the Creatives on Your List:

I actually really love the concept of this art which is to make something beautiful out of something broken.  Don’t you love that whole sentiment? Specifically, Kintsugi is the art of putting broken pieces of pottery or china back together with gold, silver, or platinum powder. You can check out some beautiful pieces of Kintsugi here.

This kit would be the perfect place to start if you or someone you know might enjoy this art.

Seems like embroidery was a lost art for many years but is slowly returning. I learned at the knee of my Grandma and still enjoy picking up thread and needles from time to time. A kit to learn this simple but lovely art form would be a great gift for many different ages.

I’m really intrigued by this one! For $15/month you could give your creative a subscription to MasterClass where they can take digital classes from so many great creatives! Take cooking classes from Gordon Ramsey, Yotam Ottolenghi, or Alice Waters. Learn gardening from Ron Finley. Learn bread-making skills from Apollonia Polane.

If your creative is more musically inclined, Tom Morello and Carlos Santana teaches guitar while Itzhak Perlman teaches violin.

There are so many cool classes taught by many of the great artists and creatives of the world.

I hope these craft kits have provided a few good gift ideas for you.

    That first one on repairing the dishes, I need that desperately. I have a dish were the center fell out all in a perfect circle. The embroidery is also very pretty.

    Lynn, I’ve been wanting to get back into embroidery and between this and Flamingo Toes, who blogs all the time with her beautiful embroidery, is pushing me in the right direction. I also love that mouse. If you see my blog on Monday, you’ll understand. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving, my friend! Hugs!
