Ranging from mini wallets through to luxurious leather handbags, you can find a leather craft kit that’s right for your budget - and simply perfect for your friend or loved one.
Our bag making kits make brilliant birthday presents or Christmas gifts but choosing a gift for a crafter can sometimes be difficult, especially if you’re not a crafter yourself. There’s no need to worry, we’re always on hand to give advice (contact us to ask about gifts for crafters). If you’re unsure what might suit the recipient's age or skill level, we’ve compiled a handy gift guide.
Best craft gift for a child
This mini envelope wallet kit doesn’t require any stitching - building it is just a simple folding technique, making it the perfect gift for a craft-loving child. What’s more, it comes with a set of six quality leather paints and two paint brushes. Kids can unleash their creativity and decorate their wallet with their own unique designs. The kit includes a guide to painting on leather with
top tips from professional illustrators and artists (it also has scrap leather for practising!).
Best craft gift for a teenager
We all know teenagers won’t go anywhere without their phones, so why not introduce them to the joys of leathercraft by letting them make their own phone holder? This leather phone pouch kit is suitable for older kids who can work with crafting tools and will enjoy getting to grips with the basics of sewing. There are three styles of stitching to choose from and a make-along video tutorial. The kits are available in an array of stunning colours that teens will love.
Best craft gift for mums, sisters, aunts and friends
If there’s a special woman in your life you want to treat, this stitchless mini bag kit is ideal. Whether they’re a hardcore crafter or simply have a creative side, they’ll love being able to build their own high quality leather bag. The kit comes with pre-cut leather pieces, adjustable strap and solid brass buckle and closure. It’s made with a simple weaving technique and a few rivets and the result is a timeless front flap, cross body bag that will suit almost all styles. There are 12 classic colours to choose from.
Best craft gift for girlfriends and wives
Have a bit more to spend? You’ll win lots of brownie points with this stitchless bucket bag kit. It’s the perfect gift for women who love to craft but also adore luxury handbags. The bag kit includes beautifully soft Italian leather, which comes in four refined colours (chestnut, black, mustard and wine), as well as solid brass hardware. No stitching is needed; the bag is woven together for a super-luxe finish.
Best craft gift for older crafters
Gifts for older crafters need to be picked carefully if they have diminished dexterity or vision. A suitable kit could be the stitchless saddle bag kit, which comes with pre-cut leather pieces and is woven together, rather than sewn. This bag has the option of a leather loop closure rather than a magnetic clasp, meaning less toolwork is required. There are both written and video instructions helping to make this DIY bag kit more accessible.
Best craft gift for men
Men love crafting too! If you’re looking to buy a craft gift for a man, look no further than our stitchable card holder kit for credit cards or business cards. In this hands-on kit, you use a paper pattern to mark out the holes on the leather. Then you punch them out using the included leather punch tool and stitch the card holder together, following online instructions. The soft Italian leather is available in seven colours, including favourites like charcoal and sea green, and you can choose a different colour for front and back. You can even add a leather painting kit - perfect for arty types.
Still can’t decide on the best gift for the crafter in your life?
We understand, when there are so many gorgeous kits to choose from it can be difficult to pick just one! If you’d rather leave that decision down to your gift recipient, why not opt for a gift card instead? Our digital gift vouchers come in denominations or £5, £10, £20, £50 and £100 and they can be redeemed on any Leather Needle Thread product.
Personalising gifts for crafters
What’s even better than receiving a craft gift? Receiving a craft gift with your name on! We offer personalisation of all our DIY kits. Simply tell us the name of the person who will be receiving the gift and we can imprint it on the leather. Names can be embossed in gold foil for an extra luxe look.

It’s all about the presentation when giving your carefully-chosen craft gift. That’s why we offer gift wrapping at minimal cost. You can also provide a message to be printed on a gift label. Your order will arrive beautifully wrapped and ready to be gifted, or we can send it directly to the recipient - just let us know if you don’t want us to include a receipt.
