Another great craft subscription box idea is an embroidery kit like this one from a small business on Etsy. You can choose from beginner friendly kits to more advanced designs, floral patterns, forest scenes or even something a little ruder for the adults! Embroidery kits – especially from small business owners – are a lovely crafty gift that your recipient can enjoy making and display afterwards.
TOP TIP: If the small business doesn’t do a set subscription box service – why not message them and ask if you can buy a kit to be delivered each month to your recipient. They may give your recipient a gift voucher that they can ‘cash in’ on a new design they like once a month or when they finish the previous kit!
