Hello everyone!  I’m sure just like everyone else, all of your free time right now is mostly consumed by getting all ready for the big day that is just around the corner now!  Well, I thought I would put together one last holiday blog that is geared at getting those last minute gifts for the DIYer in your life!

Here is a list of some great ideas that any DIYer or crafter would love to find in their stocking or under the tree this year and the best part is they are all $10 or less!

Gift Idea #1 -  Dual Temp Glue Gun:  

This is a great gift idea for someone who does a lot of crafting and repurposing of items.  It’s a nice size and has high/low settings on it.  Price is around $9.  

Tip:  Don’t forget to throw in a package or two of glue sticks.
Available at most discount, office, or craft stores.

Gift Idea #2 -  Adjustable Insert Plastic Storage Containers:  

Help your DIYer have a more organized workspace by having some of these containers on hand.  Great storage for keeping small to medium items organized and right at your fingertips.  I found these at Target but most discount and craft stores carry many different types and sizes.  Prices range from $5 to $10.

Gift Idea #3 -  Laptop Desk with Side Storage:

This is the perfect gift for someone who sometimes would like to work on projects not seated at a conventional desk or table.  Side storage for holding scissors, brushes, pens, etc. make this a very useful item. This item is priced at around $7. I found this one at Hobby Lobby but they are available in most craft and office supply stores.

Gift Idea #4 -  Set of Multi-Sized Paintbrushes

Any DIYer or crafter will tell you there is no such thing as too many brushes!  Get a couple of packages of different sized and shaped brushes that can be used for many different projects.  Prices range from $3 and up.  This set is priced at under $6 and found in the crafting department at Walmart, but again, you’ll be able to find them at any office supply, craft supply, or home improvement store.

Gift Idea #5 -  Multi-Sized Canvases

Canvases can have many uses from painting to decoupage so most DIYers love to have some different sizes on-hand.  They are also available in different shapes and different surfaces.  Prices range from $3.00 and up. This canvas is available at Walmart.  You can also find at any art supply or craft store.

Gift Idea #6 - Pen or Marker Set

Just like you can never have too many brushes, you can never have to many markers and pens!  This is a great set with a metallic ink that is perfect for all types of projects. Easy to find and priced at $5 and up, you can surely find a set to fit your budget and put a smile on your crafter’s face on Christmas morning!  I found this set at Walmart but they are available at all discount and craft/office supply stores.

Gift Idea #7 -  Scissor Set

These are great because they are a pack of three priced at under $10.  Why three, well, why not!  With three, you can have a set all around your house so they are always there when you need them!  This set is available at Walmart but you can also find them at all office supply, home improvement stores, and crafting/office supply stores.

Hope this helps take some of the stress out of your last minute shopping this year!  Happy Holidays to all!
