Sauder Holiday Gift Guide for crafters, parents and outdoorsmen

Gift Guide: crafter, parent and outdoorsman

It’s not too late to get that last stellar gift, even if it’s for the hardest-to-buy-for person on your list. You’ve got less than 10 days to go, and we’ve got three more fabulous gift categories in our holiday Gift Guide series.
So far we’ve covered gifts for the entertainer, foodie and new homeowner. We’ve helped you buy for the city dweller and college student. Now it’s time to find the absolute best gifts for your favorite crafter, young parent and outdoorsman.
Gifts for the crafter
For the crafty DIY type who can’t get enough of those Pinterest projects, give the gift of space to create and the gift of storage for those ample supplies.
  • Sewing or craft cart — She doesn’t have to be a master seamstress to appreciate a sewing cart  for the holidays. A versatile sewing or craft cart can give extra surface area for sewing or crafting. Just make sure the surface is heat-, stain-, and scratch-resistant. During the holidays, the extra space works well as a wrapping station, too!
  • Craft armoire — For the crafter who doesn’t have a lot of room to dedicate to creating, a craft armoire offers shelves that can fold out into extra workspace, in addition to doors that help hide supplies when not in use. Find one with a power strip included, and she’ll really thank you.
  • Multi-cart — Crafters never know what project is on the docket next. Give a versatile multi-cart that can transition from one craft to the next. A cart is great for storage, and one on casters is perfect for mobility.
Gifts for the parent with young children
They need to keep toys and books off the floor, but within reach. They want to tame the clutter, but add personality and charm to bedrooms and playrooms. Help them do it all. What’s important to remember with these gifts is how they can be used through the years as the kiddos grow up.
  • Twin bed — For the parent transitioning their “baby” to a “big kid” bed, help make the switch in style with a twin platform bed. It can be tempting to opt for themed bedroom sets — we’ve all seen those awesome racecar beds — but gifting a neutral colored, versatile option like a twin bed with underbed storage or even a twin bookcase headboard will be a gift that keeps on giving as their kids transition from toddlers up to teens.
  • Toy chest — Believe it or not, a toy chest is a gift for young and old! Young parents will love this clutter-fighting gift for storing toys out of site, and the kids will have fun loading (and unloading) all their belongings. Once outgrown, the toy chest can become a storage chest in an entryway or back closet, or can be used for blankets or seasonal clothes in the bedroom.
  • Bookcase — This piece of versatile furniture can be used to store books, games, toys and more. Give a cubbyhole bookcase with a few extra fabric bins for storing odds and ends. Over time, this gift can do double-duty for the parent, too. When it’s done being used in the kid’s room, it can be used for craft storage or for extra shelving in the pantry. 
Gifts for the outdoorsman
If he loves the outdoors and the serenity of nature but can’t always get away, help create a rustic oasis that reminds him of his favorite outdoor pastimes. He’ll have plenty of room to store his sporting equipment, trophies and knickknacks with these gift items.
  • Storage cabinet — Whether it’s fishing poles or soccer cleats, a storage cabinet is the perfect gift for keeping supplies organized in the off season. For the true outdoorsman, hide the clutter in a storage cabinet.
  • TV stand — A rustic TV stand is perfect for the man cave or the cabin up north. Give him a place to rest his feet on a matching log lodge coffee table. The only thing missing will be the big-screen TV.
  • Work table — Give him a place to tinker with toys or just get some work done with a counter-height work table in a repurposed wood finish. Pair it with a wrought metal adjustable counter-height stool.                                                                                                                                                                                                    
Check out these and tons of other gift ideas on our holiday gift guide Pinterest boards. We’ve even collected some gifts under $50 and gifts under $100 so, with any luck, you’ll find just what you’re looking for!
