Are you looking for the best gift ideas for an embroidery lover? You've come to the right place. 

You will find over 45 gift ideas for your favorite embroider. You will find supplies, projects, tools, and more that they will actually want!

Before we get started, let's clarify something.

Cross stitching and embroidery are two different types of needlework. Many supplies like thread, hoops, and scissors are used for both.

But there are some big differences.

Embroiderers can stitch on pretty much any type of fabric they choose. On the other hand cross stitchers generally use an even weave fabric designed to make precise, counted stitches.

The stitches used also differs. Six main stitches are used for cross stitch. Embroidery stitches are countless! This makes patterns for each very different.

There is also a difference between hand embroidery and machine embroidery. These gifts are all geared toward hand embroiderers.

This is the ultimate embroidery gift guide where you will find the best gifts specifically for embroiders.


So many options that are sure to delight the embroider in your life. Give the gift of supplies, patterns, and more.

When shopping for gifts for embroiderers, think about all the amazing supplies you can gift. Take a look at these different ideas.


Start with fabrics. You can't embroider without a base to embroider too. Embroiders can use a wide range of materials to embroider on, let's check out a couple ideas.
