From stitching storage to cute socks, you’ll find something suitable for all tastes and your budget. Whether you want to go all out, or pick up a simple stocking filler.

How to choose a cross stitch gift

You need to think about the recipient's skill level. If they have never tried cross stitching but you know they are interested, then a cross stitch kit for beginners is an ideal gift.

If they’re a seasoned crafter who already has everything, try to go for a gift that is more specialist or something that a stitcher can have multiple of. We suggest a LED lamp if you are looking for a bigger gift, or a needle minder if you are looking for something small.

Now, let’s find those crafters the best cross stitch gift around!
