10 Christmas Gift Ideas For Sewers

It’s that time of year when our thoughts are turning to the festive season, so I pulled together a quick gift guide for us sewers to add to our lists. I don’t know about you but my other half never has a clue what to buy me so I practically have to buy my own gifts and say it’s from him!

So why not grab hold of your SO and sit them in front of this blog post with a beverage of their choice and leave them to it…lol. They will thank you for making life easy for them.

I’ve included gifts in a varied price range so that different budgets are catered for.

10 Christmas Gift Ideas For Sewers:

ONE: 

So first up is a beautifully made pressing kit from a fairly new to me small company called Lulou Designs. The kit is in the higher price bracket but I think it’s something that would last forever. I have my eye on this as I’ve never owned a proper wooden board and clapper. Both items are handmade in Sussex from English Oak and the set comes with a complimentary pressing cloth set. It retails at £70. Tailors Oak Pressing Kit

TWO:

This lovely thread holder is also from Lulou Designs and is made from lovely quality wood too. The cost is £30. What a cute idea! Threadhog Holder

THREE: 

Now, I’ve always wanted to have some of the fab Merino Wool fabric that’s sold by The Fabric Store Online and so of course, this just had to go on the list. Merino is a most luxurious fibre to wear and feels fab next to your skin. The colour range is wonderful too. There are gift cards available to spend online, which is great as an alternative in case someone isn’t sure what colour to purchase as a gift for their loved one.

FOUR: 

I’ve mentioned Clothspot on my blog before (see my makes here and here for instance) and it’s no secret that they are one of my favourite online fabric shops. While browsing their website I recently spotted these Coatigan Kits. What a fab idea for a cosy Winter garment don’t you think? Prices range from £29.95 to £42 depending on the fabric you choose.

FIVE: 

Over the festive period there is undoubtedly a lot of vegging around on sofas in front of the TV, so how about some sewing and fashion themed films and documentaries as gifts?

I’ve yet to see the *Phantom Thread and I want to learn more about Dior in *Dior and I  and *Dries Van Noten sounds like such an interesting designer. All three films would be great stocking fillers and are under £10

SIX: 

Next up are some more great ideas for stocking fillers. Now, correct me if I’m wrong but in order to make the sewing process run smoothly lots of tea or coffee is often needed and wouldn’t it be nice to drink it from a sewing themed mug. Love the selection from Cafe Press and most are under £10. Isn’t this one fab?Sewing themed mugs at Cafe Press

SEVEN: 

Of course, a nice hot drink goes down well when paired with something sweet to eat. I found this fab sewing box themed chocolate gift set…yum! So quirky and not bad at £12.50 *Chocolate sewing kit gift box

EIGHT: 

Don’t forget to protect your lovely memade dress when you’re cooking the turkey dinner. How about a sewing themed apron that you can also have personalised if you want it. Stylish and practical, though I think I’d have to wear mine whilst I eat my festive dinner as well…too many pre-dinner drinks makes for a messy eater 🙂 The aprons retail at £27.  *Personalised sewing apron

NINE: 

For my penultimate item, and talking of memades…I’ve often thought how nice it would be to pop a lovely finishing touch in the form of a custom label into my sewing projects but I’ve somehow never got around to it…until now…

You see I finally got the chance to have my wish fulfilled when the lovely people at Dutch Label Shop got in touch and asked if I would like to try out their service. I could use the very user-friendly interface on their website to design my labels just how I wanted. You can choose sizes, fonts colours, label styles, motifs, borders and more. If you want, you can also have bespoke labels made using your own specific blog logo by uploading a file to their website.

I’m super pleased with how mine turned out and can’t wait to start sewing them into my makes.

If  you would like to try the service out for yourself I have a special discount offer code for you lovely readers of 15% off an order… Just enter the code dreamcutsew15  at checkout and it’s valid until Jan 14th 2019…enjoy!

Please note that I was gifted my labels by Dutch Label Shop, but I was under absolutely no obligation at all to post about them. I’m really pleased though so I just had to share with you. I have to say, it’s such an easy service to use, they ship all over the world and shipping costs are very reasonable too. Why not head across to their website and have a look around.

TEN: 

And finally, to finish off my gift list is an item that isn’t strictly something you buy…rather it’s many ideas of gifts that you could make. I came across a fabulous resource on The Sewing Directory of lots of crafty gift ideas that you could sew for yourself or give as presents.
