Playful Ideas for Holiday Gifting

The magical holiday season is a perfect time to allow your child-like enthusiasm and generous spirit to intertwine with your passion for creativity. Handmade and heart-felt gifting is a great way to show someone you care, and gives you a chance to sew some really fun projects! Here are some playful ideas that make terrific presents for kids of all ages.

DOUBLE ZIP GEAR BAG

This sturdy bag makes such a great gift, because it's so incredibly versatile.

With a lot of zippered and mesh pockets and an extra wide opening, this bag is perfect for holding just about anything.

Personalize bags by filling them up with the recipient's favorite treats, toys, a pair of pajamas or fun holiday socks.

Or, make it a gift for the whole family by using it as a game bag filled with dominoes, a deck of cards, flash cards and more!

JUST IN CASE

Younger kids will love being able to use this special case to carry their favorite small toys.

Mesh and vinyl pockets let them see what's inside, but keeps everything secure, whether they're taking their treasures to the living room or on a road trip to Grandma's house!

Older kids can use them as organizers for their backpack or locker, and are a great place to store gum, pens and pencils, small notebooks, earbuds, keys and more.

Or, turn a whole bunch into first aid kits and pass one out to each person in the family!

CONTAIN YOURSELF

If you're anticipating a lot of new toys and gifts coming into the house, these soft-sided bins are the perfect solution for keeping everything organized and looking snazzy! 

Choose bright and colorful fabrics to really personalize a child's room as they store stuffed animals, blocks, dolls and other toys.

Pick neutral fabrics for stylish storage in the living room as you organize DVDs, board games, cords for electronics and more.

A handy vinyl pouch on the side allows you to label the contents within, or you can insert name cards so each member of the family gets their own personalized bin!

MESHING AROUND

These lightweight drawstring backpacks are a great gift for kids of all ages (and adults too)!

They're an easy way to cart around toys, books, or sports balls (tennis, softball, soccer, etc.).

Or, kids can pack them up with clothes for a weekend visit to see the grandparents, use them to cart around gym clothes for school or dance practice, or as a unique and personalized bag for a sleepover party with friends.

FETCH YOUR SKETCH

This adorably fun tote is a perfect way to keep kids entertained and get the creative juices flowing!

This special art portfolio features a full chalkboard page, allowing little ones to play and color wherever they go. 

Handy zippered pockets keep pencils, markers and crayons safely contained. Vinyl makes it easy to see the contents inside and the mesh slip pockets allow easy access to the most used items.

Great for older kids too, it's a fun way to store and transport art supplies, sketch books, or homework projects for art class!

ZIP IT UP

These streamlined zippered organizers are a fun gift for tech-savy kids. 

It's so easy to carry phones, tablets, headphones, or handheld games, and there's still room left over for cords, cables or USB drives.

Make the bags extra special by choosing fabrics in kid's favorite colors, or go the extra mile by using themed fabrics from their most-loved sports team, favorite movie or TV characters, or use embellishments that go along with their hobbies or speak to their personality.
