We decided to end this year’s Hello Creative Family Holiday Gift Guide series with holiday gift ideas for creative women. We’ll be honest… these are all gifts that we would LOVE to receive, and we feel really great about giving them too. As we write this post we keep on having “These are a few of my favorite things…” from The Sound of Music running through our heads.
Oh mamas, we wish that we could give each of you fabulous readers one of each of the things on this list, we imagine ourselves doing our best Oprah impression “You get a Cricut Explore, and you get a Cricut Explore! You get a box of DAVIDsTEA! And you get an embroidery kit from I Heart Stitch Heart!” Alas, we are not Oprah, but 3 of you will end up with AMAZING gifts from this list.
We highly suggest that you leave this screen open on your computer so that your husband “happens” to stumble upon it, Pin it to your shared board with your husband, print it off and circle your favorites and perhaps, most importantly, give some of these amazing gifts to the most wonderful, creative women in your life!
Read on for our favorite gift ideas for creative women and for some incredible GIVEAWAYS at the end!
Holiday Gift Ideas for Creative Women
Crystal has been bouncing up and down with excitement since she heard from Cricut that they wanted to be involved in the gift guide. And now she can finally share the news! We’re giving away a Cricut Explore with a blue tooth adaptor!!!
Crystal was recently asked what her favorite crafting supply or tool was. The answer came to her immediately, really, it was a no brainer! Her Cricut Explore!
A Cricut is the one piece of equipment that ANYONE that is crafty would have a use for. With the print and cut technology you can use it to create cards, to cut fabric, to make iron on appliques for shirts, to make stencils, to make window clings, to make vinyl decals for your walls or car, to make labels for canning, to make gift tags, to create a pattern for glass etching… Really the possibilities are ENDLESS.
Crystal’s Cricut Explore got a definite workout this past year with her sister’s wedding. They used the Cricut Explore to make all of the table names, seating assignment cards, gift tags, labels for shower gifts and more! Whether you want to create your own images and upload them to the machine, or pick from the thousands of images in Design Space, whether you want to use the fonts on your computer or use the beautiful fonts that Cricut provides… A crafty person will never run out of ideas of what to make using their Cricut.
Here are a few of the projects that Crystal has created on her Cricut Explore:
Gold Monogrammed Clutch Purse
Hipster Rudolph Kid’s Shirt
Mr and Mrs Rudolph Hand Towels
Paper Wedding Bouquet and Flower Girl Barrettes
Totes Adorbs Beach Bag
Make sure to read all the way to the end for your chance to win a Cricut Explore One in Vintage Navy like pictured above AND a Bluetooth Adaptor!
Cozy Cabin Wrap from Indigo Chapters
Nobody wants cold fingers when they’re crafting so we like
the warmth of this cozy wrap. It’s pretty stylish too, which
can make it a grab-and-go staple, and something a bit nicer
than your bathrobe for school drop-off – not that WE’VE
ever done that ;)
Why did we pick this Cozy Cabin Wrap – can it’s a great
layering piece for getting creative with your wardrobe!
So we might be slightly obsessed with David’s Tea over
here at Hello Creative Family. And we might admit that tea
has fuelled many of our creative brainstorms – from green tea
over our special sushi lunches to a cup of David’s Tea
from Crystal’s personal (and impressive collection).
David’s Tea offers exciting flavours of loose leaf tea that you
can buy online or at one of it’s stores in Canada and the US.
We’re currently sipping our way through the 12 Days of Christmas
tea and we’re giving away a set to you!
Which are our favorite flavors? You’re guaranteed to get a
different answer from us each day but Sleigh Ride and Glitter
and Gold are current top picks.
Read to the end because DAVIDsTEA is giving one lucky
reader a 12 Teas Of Christmas Boxed Set.
Coral & Cloud
These gorgeous necklaces caught our eye awhile ago and you can
see that we are each wearing one in our headshots! Designer
Miko makes these stunning pieces from wooden beads, painted
in fantastic colours and strung on strings of upcycled
vintage t-shirts. Her necklaces come in large, for women, but
also small for kids. She also makes pretty mobiles for children’s
Fuji X-A2 Camera

Take the challenge right along with her when you get
your hands on this camera too.
Try to win one in our contest, or go and grab your own
to be sure you don’t miss out on a life with better photos.
Tropical World Colouring Book
We love watching the growing excitement over coloring
books for adults. We’ve been secretly buying kids
coloring books for years and stashing them in our
office for days when we need a good coloring. There’s
nothing like pulling out your colored pencils and a
beautiful coloring book when you need to do some
quiet creative brainstorming. The ideas start
flowing! There’s a certain meditative quality to it.
We discovered this coloring book when Crystal
attended Blog Podium earlier this year.
We love it so much that we bought coloring books for
gifts this year for all of our friends.
Guaranteed, your creative friends will love it too!
Hello Creative Family’s Colouring Calendar
No matter how fancy those iPhone calendars can be,
we still love you can put on the fridge. It helps keep
every member of the family on the same page (ha!).
So we are super super excited to share with you today
that we have our very own Hello Creative Family
calendar available for you to purchase, print and hang
on your fridge! But with a creative twist; it’s one you color
each month. The gorgeous pictures are hand-drawn by
Crystal of Wild Daughters and each month features a new
beautiful home sweet home design to make it your own.

I Heart Stitch Art
Karen discovered these complete embroidery kits
from I Heart Stitch Art this summer. They come with
high-quality materials and easy-to-follow instructions:
you can be new to embroidery to complete the kit.
They’ve included everything from hoop to needle,
and printed the pattern right onto the fabric – so it
is really like tracing a picture in thread! The end
result is simply beautiful. Check out the bicycle starter kit
or see the entire line. Follow along on Instagram to be inspired

The holidays are a great time to make or add to your
bucket list. If 2016 is your year to learn a new craft, first

excited about and then head over to Craftsy for the
convenience of online classes in all your favourite
techniques and modes for creative expression.
