Round Up: 5 Not So Average Gifts This Christmas

Pei Sim


 Paper + Craft Pantry 2017 Holiday + Christmas Gift Guide

The 10 day Christmas countdown begins today!  

We don't know about you, but we think everyone has someone on their Christmas list who "has it all" or maybe just someone who is a little trickier to shop for. If we're being honest here, it's so easy to get wrapped up in the gifting season and buy into the idea that we have to spend a lot or buy a lot to show loved ones we care. 

We took some time to really think about how we wanted to shop and gift this holiday season and rounded up our top five not so average holiday gifts that focus more on the experience, that carries on beyond Christmas Day! Because everyone loves a gift that keeps giving :) 

1. For the busy but crafty one in your life: A D.I.Y. Series Workshop Pass

We just launched a brand new workshop pass that entitles you to not one, or two but FOUR of our D.I.Y. passes for the entire calendar year (from date of purchase). You'll get to pick and choose which classes you want to attend with the help of our workshop concierge. From mini macrame tapestries, watercolor paintings and succulent gardens, you'll have no excuse to not carve out time to unwind and get crafty in our studio.

2. For the aspiring artist:  Art Journal Kit

We fell in love with Mint & Maple's Art Journal Kit the moment we saw Natalie's Kickstarter Campaign. The thought and care shines through just from the initial packaging in addition to being carried throughout all the supplies inside this kit. We're most excited about how she's turned art journaling and watercoloring into something that seems a little less intimidating and nothing short of F-U-N!

3. For someone with the travel bug: Travel Notebook Bundle | $-$$

From it's sleek design to function layout, Adventure Assist hits it out of the park with their travel notebooks. Perfect for both the travel guy and gal in your life, this notebook not only helps you gather all your important travel details but also serves as a post travel momento. Our suggestion? Pick their bundle of 3 or 5 to gift the avid traveler, or split them up to have one for your own travel plans in 2018!

4. For the new home owner: Spruce Kit | $$$

Know someone in your life who recently just closed on their new home? Or a friend who just transitioned from her 9-5 to her dream job that allows her to work from home? Or maybe you just need some re-inspiration in your home? The Spruce Kit is one of the most brilliant interior design services that allows you to have a space you will truly love. Denise is by far, one of the most talented and kindest people we know - just peruse her Instagram feed and you'll see what we are talking about. Her Spruce Kit is a gift that the receiver will enjoy for months and years to come.
