Christmas is less than a month away and our little elves (meaning me) has already been busy and happy packing all your beautiful orders. If you're still unsure about which kit to get your bestie/sister/mum or even yourself, I've created a little Gift Guide which will help you choose between the different references that we have in store.
Please note the order cut-off dates to receive your kits in time for Christmas:
Australia (standard shipping): Wednesday 4th December 9am AWST
Australia (express shipping to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth): Wednesday 18th December 9am AWST
1. For a knitting newbie
Everyday Scarf all the way! If you haven't heard about our Everyday Scarf yet, it is our best-selling kit, made for first timers. The kit comes with all the tools, materials, detailed instructions and video support you need to successfully complete your project in the comfort of your own home, at your own pace. A scarf is such a staple in a wardrobe that it will fit everyone, men and women alike. And because it is handmade with the best materials, it will last a lifetime and will be the only scarf you need in the winter time. And with 9 different colours to choose from, there's a shade to please everyone.
2. For someone who knitted a long time ago
For the person who has tried to knit when they were younger and would like to take it up again, The Everyday Beanie is a good choice. It is the perfect balance between reviewing the basic knitting techniques and learning some new cool stitches. The instructions have been designed so that a first timer could do it, but the design is challenging enough so that a second timer can have a lot of fun making it. Plus, who can say no to a classic pompom beanie?
3. For a loved one or a close friend
If you have more budget for a close relative or best friend, we highly recommend our gift sets since the bundles are better value.
Our Everyday Gift Set is offering a hands-on, stress-free, complete knitting experience to make your own handmade winter matching set. The idea is to start with The Everyday Scarf Kit (Level 1) to learn the basic knitting techniques and get used to the movements. Then to perfect your newly-acquired crafting skills with The Everyday Beanie Kit (Level 2), both included in the set.
Our Calm Set (Christmas Limited Edition) is all about self-care and mindfulness. Created in collaboration with other women-led brands, it includes all your essentials for a relaxing quiet night in: our best-selling Everyday Scarf kit, a plant-based aromatherapy candle, and a duo of detox herbal teas. All of these products are handmade locally.
4. For a serious crafter who already has everything
For a knitting addict that finds our kits too easy (or has already completed all of them!), why not buy her/him our Project Bag, which will hold all of her/his craft accessories and works in progress. Sturdy, functional and modern, it will surely be useful to a serious crafter or a crafter-to-be as a supplies organiser or for knitting on the go.
5. For a new mom or a mother-to-be
Our baby knitting kits make wonderful and unique shower or birth presents. Mum can learn how to knit a blanket, a pair of shoes or a bonnet of her baby, while waiting patiently for his arrival. See The Stripey Baby Blanket (Level 1), The Pompom Baby Shoes (Level 2), The Pompom Baby Bonnet (Level 2).
For a bundle, why not give her Loving Touch, which features our Stripey Baby Blanket beginner knitting kit and a duo of natural, cold-pressed soaps for Mum and Baby, celebrating the softness of a mother's touch, baby skin and the bonding of the bath time ritual.
6. For a stocking filler
If you're after a small crafty gift that would look super nice in a Christmas stocking, look no further than The Gold Birdie Scissors. As useful as it is beautiful, it is definitely a staple for a knitter.
