Gift Giving Ideas for the Wire Wrapper in YOUR Life
As I was trying to decide what to tell you about today, I saw a sign that read “41 Days until Christmas” and I panicked a little bit! I can’t believe that? It seems like just yesterday we were talking about sunshine and making anklets to wear by the pool! Today, I’m looking out my window and it’s snowing and blowing and I’m wondering if I’m going to have all of my projects done in time.
So, I thought I would do a post today dedicated to Gift Giving Ideas for the Wire Wrapper in YOUR Life.
Maybe you have a friend or a family member who is just getting started and you just don’t know what to get them, or perhaps your significant other has asked you “honey, what would you like this year?” and you haven’t yet told them…
Well, I took a quick poll around the office to see what everyone would have loved to receive as a gift and I got some great ideas for you!
Gifts for the Beginner:
I asked our customer service gals to tell me what they would love to have received as a “beginner” – here’s what they said:
Janina and Layna both agreed that it might be awesome to receive the Jump Start Beginner Classes on DVD and our Ultimate Wire Pliers Set! They thought those two gifts would give them the little “kick” to get them started!
Debbie told me: ” I would have loved getting the tumbler set, with all the works! There are so many different things you can use it for like hardening and finishing projects, getting jump rings ready to use, and polishing rocks and gemstones.”
She also thought that receiving one of our 7 Piece Mini TruStrike Hammer Set’s would be awesome! You get so many different heads for use with all of your projects.
With that she would also have wanted to receive the Bench Block Helper with Steel and Nylon Blocks, and the Rawhide and Brass Hammer. (Those would keep her out of her husbands tool box!)
Intermediate Level Gifts:
I asked Meghan (from our warehouse), who considers herself and Intermediate level wire wrapper, what kinds of gifts she thought she would like this year!
She said: I would love getting the Entire Intermediate DVD Series, and any kind of wire! She especially loves creating with our Colored Craft Wire or our Base Metal Pattern Wire so either of these would be great gifts for her!
A few tools that might be added to that list of “great gifts” would be the Lindstrom Multi Purpose Shear for cutting Pattern Wire and the Xuron Double Flush Cutter for cutting wire or heavy metal strands.
Layna also metioned that she loves creating beautiful bracelets and earring combinations with Argentium Wire, Pearls and faceted Gemstone Beads so any combination of those would suit her just fine!
Advanced Level Gift Ideas:
Here’s a few quick ideas that we came up with for the advanced wire wrapper in YOUR life!
For the person who has everything:
And last but not least, if you just can’t decide what to give someone, don’t worry… we’ve got you covered! We also offer Gift Certificates!
|Gift Certificates make outstanding gifts for friends, family or loved ones and can be redeemed for any product in our store.|
So, now that I’ve given you some great ideas, I need to go get working on the rest of my projects! I hope you enjoyed seeing a few of the items our staff here would love to receive!
