Hobbies can inspire happiness, health, and creativity. This season, shop for holiday gifts that inspire a new pastime or encourage families to make crafts together. Featured today on Theresa’s Reviews, I am sharing some of my favorite craft gift ideas.
Painting uses attention to detail that can improve stress and help with relaxation. One painting gift idea that helps make concepts simple for beginners is the Chirpwood Paint by Shadows art kit.
This is a great gift idea for anyone who hasn’t painted in a long time and needs to relearn the basics, and it is simple enough for anyone who has never painted before.
The kit comes with 24 tubes of paint, 3 brushes, one canvas, one main guide image along with written and video instructions.
Using this kit is as easy as paint-by-numbers. When you follow the guide image as closely as possible, the results are beautiful.
It’s like having training wheels as a beginning artist. I enjoyed learning about acrylic painting without the intimidation of a blank canvas.
Make your painting a beautiful part of your home with the TwoStick wooden Frames. I chose a dark cherry wood. It had a rustic look that looked fantastic in a room with similar colors.

Family Craft Kits
Long days at home can make parenting feel more difficult, but crafting can offer the chance to talk. Being creative together is a relaxing and memorable experience, while it also helps children develop confidence, learn teamwork, and develop basic skills.
One family craft kit I adore is the DIY Light-Up Snow Globe from Create Art: Party in a Box. My daughter likes to collect snow globes from travels and special occasions. This will be a very special one for the collection because we made it together.
Inside the kit, you receive the glass bowl, twinkle lights, a PomPom snowman, glittery snow, a mini tree, mini pine cones, two wood snowflakes, and red gems.
Since it was simple to put together, we fit in a magical holiday moment during a lunch break from virtual learning.
You can check out the behind-the-scenes clips of putting the snow globe together in my Instagram Reels.
Another item from Create Art: Party in a Box is the DIY Stencil Personalized Santa Cookie and Milk Board. This kit comes with a pre-made personalized stencil cut out on the wooden board along with black paint, paint brushes, and Mod Podge.
Making this kit got my children in the holiday spirit. They can’t wait to set out their milk, carrot, and cookies!
