10 gifts for the cross stitcher who has everything

No matter how many supplies and tools we collect as stitchers, there is always something new to discover. From stocking stuffers to splurges, here are some ideas for the stitchers on your list.

1. Floss Boss needle minder

Tell your favorite stitcher that you know they are a floss boss with this enamel needle minder. The needle minder has a magnet on the back, so it holds a stitcher's needle when not in use. It's the perfect accessory, and the perfect compliment!

2. Patterns by Japanese designer Gera!

Japanese designer Gera! creates the most magical and charming cross stitch patterns. Her designs have only recently been made available in the U.S., so chances are your favorite stitcher doesn't have any yet. Inspired by folk tales, classic literature, fairy tales, and medieval tapestries, Gera! patterns have a fresh, modern feel with bright color palettes and captivating details. You can check out the full collection here.

3. Thread organizers by Maison Sajou

French brand Maison Sajou makes the most beautiful vintage-inspired supplies for cross stitch and embroidery. A set of lovely thread cards or a thread palette will always be appreciated. It's the sort of supply a stitcher can never have too many of.

5.  Dovo long-handled embroidery scissors

Most cross stitchers already have a favorite pair of embroidery scissors (not that most of us wouldn't mind more), but these scissors are different. At 5-inches, they are a bit larger than other embroidery snips, and with a wide short blade, they are perfect for cutting embroidery thread, yarn, and fabric. Made in Germany using old world techniques, these scissors will last a lifetime and are a pair to treasure.

10. Sterling silver cross stitch bangle bracelet kit

Makers can wear their stitches on their sleeve, or at least on their arm, with this cross stitch bracelet kit. The stitching is done on a strip of Aida cloth which is then attached to the bangle. It's a project any stitcher would be proud to show off.
