Gift giving doesn’t have to a struggle. Everybody has a hobby or interest, you just have to listen carefully to your BFF when she is talking about hers. It is the solution to your gift giving conundrum. We put together a list of our top picks to help ease the stress of last minute shopping.
For the Knitter
Here is our “purl” of wisdom – a We Are Knitters kit is the perfect gift! It comes with everything that your giftee will need to complete their project. They will receive wool skeins, needles AND a pattern. You may even be the recipient of their homemade project one day. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Patterns vary from easy to advanced; there is something for everyone. You can even order additional supplies and put together the ultimate gift basket.
Available at We are Knitters – prices vary
For the Reader
It is never safe to buy an avid reader a book. They may already have it in their collection. You can still buy them a thoughtful gift related to their favourite pass time. We love these cozy reading socks. They are perfect for curling up on the couch with a book and a cuppa.
