Creative Time at Home:
8 Gift Ideas
1. Paint by number
There are a multitude of paint-by-number kits available so you can easily find one to suit the budding artist on your list. What a fun way to spend some free time on winter weekends.
2. Candle making kit
Making candles could be a fun activity for the whole family.
3. Model car kit
My husband used to build models as a kid and took it up again during this time at home. He converted the area under our stairs into a space for this hobby and he has really gotten into it. Actually, I am thrilled. He is normally very hard to buy for but there are a surprising amount of associated items for this hobby.
Puzzles make great gifts for an individual or for a whole family. Since many of us missed out on vacations this year, perhaps a puzzle with a travel theme?
5. Coloring book
There is something truly therapeutic about coloring. And can’t we all use a bit of therapy these days?
Yarn crafts have always been popular but even more so now. Whether your gift recipient is just getting started or has been crafting for years, there are many gift possibilities for the yarn lover.
7. Art supplies
I suggest avoiding those art kits with a little bit of everything and instead buy the best quality you can afford of just one item. For instance, Prismacolor makes excellent color pencils:
And Strathmore sketchpads are the best:
8. Sushi making supplies
And for something a little different, how about a sushi making kit? We may not be able to go out for sushi right now but it could be fun to make it at home.
