It’s gift giving season again! While trying to figure out what to tell my husband I wanted for Christmas this year I realized that what I want may also be what other makers want too. So I figured it was time for another round up post, but this time it’s filled with some of the best ideas for giving gifts to the makers in your life. If you’re a maker yourself you can just send your family a link to this page so they know exactly what to get you!

Even though I’m posting this close to Christmas time, all of these ideas are perfect for any gift giving occasion so make sure to bookmark this page. Also, please keep in mind that with it being so close to the holidays and with having included as many small businesses as possible, some items may not be available at this time. It’s always nice to keep these fellow makers in mind though for future gift giving occasions.
