Last Minute Gift Ideas

Can you believe that Christmas is tomorrow? Like every year, the last couple months goes by so quickly.

Are you ready for Christmas? For those that have last minute shopping to do, but not sure what to get, here are ideas to help you finish your list.

First, let's get into projects that you can make.

A fun, artistic and personalized gift to be treasured for years to come. The hardest part of this project will be deciding which photo you will use.

The same technique as the Canvas Photo Transfer, but with wood to create a more unique look.

An easy to make skirt to transform your little girl into a princess, fairy or ballerina. So easy in fact, you will end up making more than one.

Instead of tulle, use fabric! Or even ribbon any other materials you can tie on for your no-sew skirt.

Vinyl Canvas Wall Art

Our Vinyl department offers a variety of sayings and quotes that you can quickly adhere onto a painted canvas or wooden plaque for personalized wall art. 

Any non-knitter can make this scarf in about a few hours or less. We have a fantastic tutorial that demonstrates just how quickly you can make this here.

Don't want to make a scarf? We have a variety of scarves from cashmere to knit in a wide selection of colors and patterns.

Scarves and Gloves

So on that note, let us share things that are ready-to-give.

Add a little sparkle to a gift with jewelry!

Our Vintage Market Collection allows you customize jewelry by selecting the chain, then adding charms, baubles and pendants to make a one-of-a-kind accessory.

Our beading kits, that include all the supplies you need to make a necklace, bracelet, or ring, make great stocking stuffers.

We also have ready-to-wear jewelry like Scrabble tile pendants, crystal bracelets, necklaces and rings.

Our 2013 calendars are in and we have a variety of themes to suit any personality from artistic to animals, landscapes and more.

And, if you are looking to buy a gift for a guy, we have these really neat natural cork coasters that have laser engraved designs.

Calendars and Laser Engraved Natural Cork Coasters

Subway art is great to give someone for their home because most quotes you will see are positive and humorous, such as the ones from Primitives by Kathy.

Another item that would make an uplifting gift are the "Advice from a ..." postcards from Your True Nature. Ilan Shamir, the artist and creator of these beautiful postcards, offer inspirational advice from a perspective of an animal, plant and other natural wonders of the world.

The fun thing about these postcards is that you can turn any one of them into wall art. Check out one of our popular postcards, Advice from a Horse to see the tutorial on how to quickly you can transform a postcard into beautiful art.

Let's not forgot scrapbookers! Tools are essential for paper crafting and the Lucky 8 Punch and Mini 8 Punch are great for designing page layouts, cards and other projects.

Lucky 8 Punch

Our We R Memory Keepers Leather Albums, which come in a huge assortment of colors, are perfect for preserving the page layouts created with the 8 Punch and memories for years to come.

The Sizzix Big Shot is another handy tool that is an all-in-one machine that shape cuts and embosses paper, vinyl and more.

One of the unique things about our store, other than our arts and craft materials and supplies, is our home decor. With an eclectic collection, you will may be spending some time trying to decide what to select.

Here is a tiny peek of what we have for home decor.

What about a picture frame? Our Frame Shop has a wide selection of designs and sizes to make it easy to find the right frame to match anyone's home decor.

Ready-Made Frames

We could go on forever, but think it is best that you come in to check out our wide array of items we carry. Be sure to carve out some free time in your schedule, because with so many things to see, you could be perusing our store for awhile.

And, if you really have a hard time deciding, you can get a gift card. We have those available in any denomination for both our store and Ben's Espresso (for the coffee lovers).


We are open until 5:00 p.m. today, so come in and let us help you find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list!
