I was trying to update my Christmas wish list and realized that the items I was longing for might be just the things other creative folks were hoping to find under the tree. It can be tricky buying cutting gifts for sewers and crafters. Our needs can be very particular. I am certain that you can’t go wrong buying something that cuts. As a sewer, I am always using scissors to cut fabric, paper patterns, and thread. There are cutting devices for all of these. When I am crafting I am cutting paper, ribbon, plastic, tape….the list goes on.

If you are unsure about what to buy you can’t go wrong with a gift card or certificate to a sewing/fabric store that carries scissors.
Scissors are the best cutting gifts ideas.
The one in the graphic above, a perfect stocking stuffer, is the extremely useful 5 inch Knife edge by Gingher
You can’t have too many. These are only a few of mine for sewing and embroidery. I use the Gingher Thread nippers all the time.
IF YOUR SEWER OR CRAFTER IS A LEFTY, SCISSOR BUYING GETS TRICKY. PROPER LEFTHANDED SCISSORS HAVE THE BLADES REVERSED.
For lefty scissors when you hold them in your left hand the left side blade, which is the one that cuts downward, should be the lower grip. Be warned ther e are scissors that claim to be lefty where they have only put lefty comfortable grips on right-handed scissors. My mother is a lefty so this is a situation I have been in. I want your cutting gift ideas to be a success!
