Festive Gift Guide 2013: Gifts for Spinners

In my 'gift-knitting formula' post, I mentioned how much enjoyment I get from giving (and getting!) handmade gifts, so for this year's Festive Gift Guide I'm including as many handcrafted / independent sellers as possible. When it comes to spinning this is easy, as most of the lovely things I have bought or am coveting are from Etsy. For this, the first part of the FGG 2013, I've put together some things which I think would make lovely gifts for those who'd like to learn to spin and who have already made a start. Here are some of my favourites (you may notice there are a few I've already gifted to myself!)...

The featured items are all taken from the Spinning & Fluff Etsy page I'm curating, where you can find a lot more! You can "follow" the page to keep up to date with new items which will be added regularly (especially when I get the spinning wheel which is currently sitting in the corner of the bedroom in a massive box which I am not allowed to open until 25th).

I'll be back throughout December with more festive gift ideas including items for knitters, crocheters and book lovers as well as children and the impossible-to-buy-for men in your life! Spinning Show & Tell will resume in the new year - my thanks to those who have already posted links and come back each week to comment and encourage. 


  1. The Ladybug?! I'm green girl, green ;)
    Delicious list too thanks X

  2. I know!!! I had so many recommendations for it, it was the logical choice. It's killing me that it's still in the box though!!!! :D

  3. Nice collection of amazing ideas. These are really adorable and highly beautiful. Using handmade gifts has come into trend nowadays and people are found preferring these over readymade artificial gifts as well. Handmade items are used as personal and corporate gift with high preference now and a great collection of these can be found at http://www.indiancraftexport.com
