Online Classes from Craftsy
If you read this blog then you're probably a crafty person, which means you probably have a crafty friend (or two) that might want to learn something new. If your friend (or you) have been eyeing trying something new for the new year, right now Craftsy is offering up to 50% off all online classes! So if someone has been saying they are interested in learning to quilt, learning more about photography, or learning how to watercolor...Craftsy is the place to grab up the perfect last minute, learning gift. If you're unsure of the something new they might want to learn in the new year, snatch up a Craftsy gift card so they can choose the class that is right for them.
If you have a crafty friend who likes to make crafty things, mots likely he or she also appreciates other's crafty work. An Etsy gift card is a great way to help them support their handmade buying habit and to support small artists. Also remind them to sign up for Ebates! I can say that the usual rebate is 1% for Etsy but the percentage will go up on assorted dates - like on Black Friday (no guarantees though). If they shop Etsy through Ebates they will save money but they won't take any money away from the artist selling through Etsy. You can also use Ebates through a variety of other online shops as well. Your friend might appreciate that thoughtful tip too (and that tip was free!)
If you have a crafty friend who likes to save money (see how this all connecting here?) then they probably will appreciate getting their crafty supplies at a discount and with free two day shipping. Soooooo the gift of Amazon Prime is a great last minute (yet thoughtful) gift! Not only will they get the free two day shipping, but it also includes access to Amazon Instant Video and access to borrowing ebooks from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library. (I don't have a kindle but I can assume there are some crafty related ebooks out there.)
I hope this has given you a few last minute ideas to wrap up and place under the tree. They don't take up a lot of space but they are definitely very thoughtful & helpful!
Hope you all have a very happy Holiday! Enjoy your Christmas!
