Perfect Gifts For The Crafters
lf you’re like me, you have a crafter or two on your holiday gift list. Of course, a yummy yarn is always a great gift, but sometimes you may want something a bit more creative. I’ve put together this list, to give you ideas of great gifts to share with your crafty loved ones.
And, because it’s the holiday season there’s a giveaway too! Keep scrolling to the end, to see the rules and see how you can enter for a chance to win one of these fabulous prizes!
OttLite is an old favorite for crafters. Their lights help shed some much needed light on those WIPs and as we age, don’t we all need a little extra help?
Being the owner of two OttLites already (a floor lamp and a really convenient desktop organizer), and knowing how much I count on them, I was very excited to try one of their newest lights, the Cool Breeze LED Fan Lamp. Thank you to OttLite for providing me with a sample to test.
This lamp boasts Super Bright Daylight LED Illumination and air circulation right at your fingertips. It has an integrated fan in the base! There are 3 color modes (warm light, cool light and natural daylight) and 5 brightness settings, plus 3 fan speeds. The height adjusts from 15″ to 26.5″ and the head of the lamp is flexible so you can direct the light exactly where you want it and need it most. I must admit I had planned on using this light in my bedroom for extra light while putting makeup on, but I find I love it on my worktable. It sheds a bit more light as I work my project and the fan keeps me cool in the process plus it’s easy to move around if I shift to another workspace, and look at how sleek and COOL it looks!
I love that OttLite keeps adding wonderful lighting products, with the crafter in mind, to their product line up. If you haven’t already tried one of their products, treat yourself!
