7 Things To Include In A Handmade Hamper For A Craft-Obsessed Friend

Whether it's a special birthday, an anniversary or you’re simply feeling extra generous, giving the gift of a hamper is a great way to show someone how much you care. Hampers are the ultimate personalised gift, as you can pick and choose exactly what to fill them with depending on what your recipient likes. If you’ve got a crafty friend to buy for, a hamper filled with supplies is a fantastic way to top up their stash, and maybe even introduce them to a new skill or two!

7 Things To Include In A Handmade Hamper For A Craft-Obsessed Friend

1. Craft room organisation

While craft supplies are always appreciated, we’re aware that some people’s stashes are already getting a little out of hand! Give the gift of organisation with the Golden Glamour Collection - Desk Organiser, Pin Dish, Scissors, and Thread Cutter – the rose gold colour will add a hint of glamour to the craft room, while also helping keep all their supplies in order!

2. Pretty ribbons and embellishments

Pretty things are always a winner! From sparkles and sequins to buttons and ribbon, embellishments are the perfect finishing touch to any craft. Try a selection like the Hunkydory - Forever in our Hearts - Ribbon Selection that includes a range of colours which work beautifully together, or can be used on their own for a touch of glamour.

3. Rainbow of pens

A multipack of fineliner pens is always a good choice to include in a hamper, because they can be used in such a wide variety of crafts. With this rainbow collection of Creativ Colortime Fineliners, your loved one can add their own favourite hue to all their makes, whether they prefer fun colourful designs or dramatic monochrome palettes.

4. Crafting book

Whether you’re giving your hamper to an inexperienced crafter or you just want to share a new skill, a how-to book is a fun way to help your recipient discover a whole new world of crafting. The range of topics is endless, from knitting to papercraft and everything in between. Why not try theming your whole hamper around the topic of the book? For example, alongside the Creative Paper Quilling Book by Ann Martin you could include a paper collection, quilling tools and even a frame for their completed works of art.

5. Sweet jar

Every crafter needs a snack to enjoy while they work! A retro sweetie jar can double as a card in your hamper, so you can pass on your well wishes in an extra-sweet manner. This super simple tutorial shows you how to transform an empty jar into a gift good enough to eat!

6. Tickets to a crafting event or workshop

For an exciting surprise addition to your hamper, treat yourself and your loved one to tickets to a hands-on crafting experience. Whether you choose a large-scale crafting convention or an intimate workshop where you learn a new skill, it's the perfect time to spend some quality time together and enjoy some crafting!

7. A completed project made by you

What could be more special than a project completed by yourself? A handmade item is wonderfully sentimental, and it shows your loved one just how much you care. Pop in something you’ve made yourself, like a little amigurumi toy or an intricate beaded necklace like this fabulous crocheted piece by Sarah Milsopp, for the ideal finishing touch to your hamper.
