I know many of you have been busily stitching gifts this holiday season, and Anne and I are right there with you, knitting up until almost the last minute. We recently got these cute gift tags in, with care instructions on the back, so you can send your handmade gifts off with all the relevant information.
You may not have time to start making a holiday gift at this point, as Hannukah is well under way and Christmas is nearly here. (Though a skein of Malabrigo Rasta can make a hat or cowl in as few as four hours, I hear…) If you still have gifts to procure, take heart: here are a few last minute gift ideas from the Hillsborough Yarn Shop.
A pretty shawl pin is a nice accompaniment to a handmade scarf, shawl, or wrap, and gift enough on its own, as well. We just got these tiny twig-shaped shawl pins in from Jul, and we have lots of other shawl pins to choose from, too.
From the stocking stuffer department: Lilly Brushes are excellent tools for de-pilling natural fiber garments, and we’ve got plenty in stock. A bottle of Gloves in a Bottle makes a great little gift, too; this hand lotion saves me every winter. For knitters on your list, also consider Sirka counters, stitch markers, sachets of lavender, and other notions you can never have too many of.
Knitters and crocheters love to choose their own materials, tools, and books, making a gift certificate to a local yarn shop a real treat. Whether you come by the shop, give us a call, or order online, we’re happy to connect you with a Hillsborough Yarn Shop gift certificate in any denomination.
Thanks for thinking of our shop as a source for a gift this holiday season! We appreciate your support so much, and wish you the happiest holidays.
