Thinking about Christmas already? I know I have been. Only two short months left before that magical holiday filled with gift giving is upon us. So what do you get a scrapbooker for Christmas?
Here is a top ten list of the best gift ideas for scrapbookers this year!
If you don’t buy it for Christmas, save the list and periodically throughout the year for other holidays you can use these ideas.
10. A Scrapbook Tote
Definitely check out the different sizes, shapes and colors available. Prices vary greatly on these but the Mimi Totes are my favorites and are a great bargain when compared to other similar styled totes. I’ve posted an article titled Choosing a Scrapbook Tote that might make it easier for your to select one for the scrapbooker you are buying for.
9. Disposable Supplies
Every scrapbooker needs adhesive, stickers, papersm cardstock and more. Buying refills on items they use frequently is a must. Also check out Michaels and Joanns for their huge paper packs – they make great gift ideas.
8. Gift Subscription to a Scrapbook Mag
There are so many different scrapbook magzines available on the market. The price adds up when you are buying them off the rack each month. Any scrapbooker would probably be extremely happy to get a new magazine each month taht was filled with ideas to get them scrapbooking more! Ask the scrapbooker what their favorite scrapbooking magazine is, so that they are sure to get what they like. My favorite is Scrapbook Answers magazine which comes with a CD each month packed full of video how to’s and fonts and other goodies.
7. Monthly Kit Subscription
Why not give them the gift that keeps giving. Most monthly kits come with enough supplies to make at the very least two two-page layouts. Some come with more. Each month a special box arrives at their door filled with supplies that coordinate and make some great layouts.
6. Storage and Organizational Tools
With all the great new products out for scrapbookers, organizing has never been easier. Why not get the scrapbooker in your life the tools she needs to manage her stash and her life a bit better.
5. Fun and Creative Purses, Bags and Totes
Scrapbookers need a smaller way to carry around some of their supplies. I know I enjoy carrying some of my stuff around with me. Keeps me inspired and allows me to be creative and jot the ideas down at a moments notice. Why not look into getting them a scrapbookers purse or something similar.
4. Idea Books
Like any good scrapbooker, I crave ideas. A great gift idea is to purchase a couple of idea books. Find out what style they scrapbook, or perhaps a theme they focus on a lot. For instance, if they travel a lot, getting them a vacation themed idea book would be great. If they just had a new baby, a baby idea book would be perfect. You can also join The Scrapbook Club and get several books free and discounts on many others.
Check out the classes available at your local scrapbook store. See if they are any you think the gift recipient might be interested in. If you have trouble locating something locally, there are several new options on the Internet, like Twig Interactive Scrapbook Classes.
2. Embellishments Galore
Scrapbookers love embellishments and with all the terrific 3D embellishments available there is bound to be something for anyone on your list. From buttons and charms, to metals, ribbons and slide mounts. You can use anything on your layouts these days.
1. Gift Card
The perfect gift every time. Scrapbookers love the thrill of walking into a scrapbook store and staring at all the wonderful merchandise available to them. Giving them a gift card allows them the ability to choose what they need which might be some embellishments for a layout, or a new album.
