Embroidery Gift Guide 2021

If you’re looking for the perfect gift to give the embroiderer in your life then you’ve definitely come to the right place. I’ve been embroidering for over 40 years and in this Embroidery Gift Guide, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite embroidery supplies. 

One of the great things about embroidery is that it needs very few supplies to get started. Fabric, floss, a large eyed needle, scissors, hoop and a pattern are the very basics.

So we’ll start by covering the basic supplies every embroiderer needs.

We’ll finish with some awesome gift ideas that your embroidery enthusiast, whether beginner, advanced or somewhere in between, would love to have.

Embroidery Gift Guide 2021

I've gathered 25 awesome gift ideas. Some I use on a regular basis, others are on my own Christmas wish list!

Stainless Steel Embroidery Scissors

A good pair of stainless steel embroidery scissors that can be kept in a project bag are great to have.

I could have created an entire post just on embroidery scissors. There are so many pretty ones to choose from. I've chosen just a few to share with you today.

If you don't find ones here that you think your recipient might like, click through on one of them, scroll down to related products section and have a browse through until you find just the right pair.

Embroidery Hoops

Embroidery hoops come in various sizes from small to quite large.

I prefer to work with a 4" hoop because it fits nicely in my hands. Others prefer larger hoops.

Hoops for Framing

Embroidery hoops are also a quick and easy way to frame a finished piece. Below, I've linked to 8" hoops but you can buy these in bulk in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Patterns to Embroider

And of course, they'll want patterns to embroider.

How to Transfer Embroidery Pattern to Fabric

There are a few different methods that can be used to transfer patterns from paper onto to fabric.

The simplest and most inexpensive way it to tape the pattern to a window, center the fabric over the pattern and tape that to the window. Then use an HB pencil to trace the pattern.

I've provided other options below some of which would make great stocking stuffers to go along any other embroidery gifts you select.

Add a little something handmade

If you happen to be an embroiderer yourself and want to add a little something handmade to your gift how about this Embroidered Butterfly Pincushion.

Or maybe this simple Needlebook made with felt.


I hope you’ve found this list useful for choosing the perfect gifts for anyone on your list who loves to embroider.
