1 | Color At Home: A Young House Love Coloring Book

This is my favorite coloring book. John and Sherry from Young House Love are amazing (their podcast is awesome too!) and they created this coloring book that helps you figure out how to mix colors. So fun!

2 | Sharpie Retractable Permanent Markers

Everyone needs more colorful permanent markers in their life.


3 | Craft Swivel X-Acto

X-acto knifes are so helpful to have around and I love that this one has a cap and swivels. This would be a great stocking stuffer idea too!

4 | Sewing Clips

If you (or someone you know) sews and doesn’t have wonder clips, you MUST buy these. Game changer when it comes to sewing! I used them to make this puff quilt and every time I make a tag blanket.

5 | Liquid Chalk Markers

Liquid chalk markers are so great to have for quickly decorating for parties and making signs.

6 | Scrapbooking Paper

There is ALWAYS a need for more colorful scrapbook paper. #amiright?

7 | Woodburner Pen

Ok, not technically a colorful tool, but this woodburning pen is the one I have and so awesome to have! You can make so many fun things with it.

8 | Baker’s Twine

Colorful baker’s twine is SO helpful to have in stock to tie packages, decorate, or add a little pop of color to practically anything.

9 | Prismacolor Colored Pencils

These colored pencils would be great to go along with the Color at Home coloring book linked above.

10 | Silhouette Sketch Pens

If you know someone who has a Silhouette machine and they don’t have sketch pens, please do them a favor and buy them this set. They are SO FUN and you can do so many things with them. Printables, invitations, tags…

11 | Washi Tape

I don’t know any crafter that doesn’t have a washi tape obsession. Plus, everyone always needs more colorful washi tape.

12 | Scissors

I don’t know about you, but I’m always misplacing my scissors. So handy to have multiple pairs around.

13 | Glue Gun

A glue gun is like the crafter’s duct tape. Anything can be fixed with a little hot glue.

14 | Paint Brush Set

You can never have too many paint brushes in different sizes! I like having some for paint and a few set aside for staining in corners.

I had so much fun putting this roundup together for you and hope you found it helpful!

What would you add to this list?
