Gifts for the Crafter

Ethel gloves make the perfect stocking stuffer. Ethel is a beautiful, functional and thoughtful stocking stuffer. A new line of stylish yet protective work gloves made especially for women’s hands, Ethel will have them looking forward to spring. (And, they can use the gloves to haul out the Christmas tree, take down the lights and decorations and any other household projects that come up before it is time to hit the garden.)

Ethel gloves retail for $18.00 and are available online at www.ethelgloves.com. They are: Made to fit the contours of women’s hands for maximum comfort, available in small, medium and large, durable and tough, yet refined, four-way stretch Spandex and breathable, synthetic leather materials for flexibility and lightweight comfort, designed to protect with an elasticized extended cuff and reinforced fingertips, machine washable, five gorgeous designs - signature, expression, gala, rendezvous and jubilee.

Make wonderful crafts and gifts from artist Lin Wellford. Painting Houses, Cottages and Towns on Rocks is a periennial favorite that is enjoying new popularity as people focus on low-cost art and craft activities. Projects range from quaint 'Gnome Homes' to fancy Victorian versions, and these projects can be displayed indoors or out.

Another gift option for expectant parents to give or receive is The New
Grandparents Name Book
, a lighthearted guide to picking the perfect
grandparenting name. With more than 700 options to choose from, expectant
grandparents can enjoy trying on a wide variety of names when deciding what
they'd like their grandchildren to call them. This small format gift book
will be available as a pre-publication special through my website,
www.linwellford.com and is published in affiliation with grandparents.com

Signature Needle Arts is an international Web-based company that manufactures and sells customizable knitting needles at a quality and style unlike any other brand. The founder and president, Cathryn Bothe, saw a need in the market for a knitting needle that was hassle-free and the exact fit for the project she was doing.

Mothers and grandmothers will find this state-of-the-art needle easier to use because they chose the type of point - blunt, middy or stiletto; length; and custom end cap (end cap exclusive to single points). These are beautiful pieces as well that have the look and feel of fine jewelry that’s guaranteed for life, but for a nominal cost of $28-32 for single points and $45 for double points. They are a splurge for everyday knitting needles; however affordable for a loved one to purchase as a specialty gift. As you may know, the knitting industry is grossly popular and a fast-growing market for luxury yarns and accessories. Please visit www.signatureneedlearts.com for more information!
