2022 Holiday Gift guide

2022 Holiday Gift guide


There’s nothing more overwhelming than last-minute Christmas shopping! Who wants to spend hours wandering around crowded malls searching for the perfect gift when you could be sewing in your craft room? This year, avoid the shopping rush and give the gift of embroidery! 
To help you find the perfect embroidered present for every loved one in your life,  we’ve compiled a thoughtful Gift Guide with all of our favorite Anita Goodesign collections!


Need a gift for a fellow embroidery lover? You’ve come to the right place! Whether your friend is a first-time embroiderer or a seasoned pro, we have Educational Curriculums to interest crafters of all levels! Our Anita’s University 101, 102, 201, 301, and 501 all come with curriculum binders and USBs, giving you something physical to wrap and place under the tree. Speaking of physical products, Stephen Wilson’s Signature Series books make incredible gifts for those who love luxury embroidery designs! These elegant hardcover books come with gorgeous butterfly or flower embroidery designs that elevate any piece of apparel or artwork.
For the gift that keeps on giving, why not give an embroidery club subscription as a present? Our brand new Anita 365 Club gives members a year of high-quality embroidery designs AND site-wide discounts such as 30% off all collections, 40% off educational curriculums, and 50% off hardcover books. This club officially starts on January 1st, but purchase the club for a friend (or yourself!)  in the month of December to have an extra month added to the end of the membership! For only $1 a day, you can give the gift of savings with Anita 365!


A toy that keeps children occupied is just as much a gift for parents as it is for kids. Our Marble Mazes make great fidgets to bring to the waiting room or ride to Grandma’s house! Kids will love navigating the marble through the twists and turns created by clear organza and satin stitches. There are 8 free-standing maze designs that can be customized with your choice of applique fabric, but we recommend adding minky to create a soft, sensory experience! Our Chunky Puzzles are another great gift for helping kids develop their fine motor skills. Both of these collections can be done completely in the hoop, perfect for a last-minute stocking stuffer! 
We couldn’t discuss Children’s gifts without mentioning our Train Track Playmat! These 21 blocks come in various scenes for you to arrange and customize. Everyone will be impressed with the details on the finished quilt, and kids will love maneuvering their toy trains around the fabric tracks! This collection is sure to create priceless memories when unwrapped on Christmas morning.


Whether you’re shopping for a father, son, or brother-in-law, we’ve got you covered! Our Sport Fishing collection includes ten realistic fishing designs that any avid fisherman will approve of. In fact, we have embroidery collections for every popular hobby, such as Golf, Hunt Club, and Playing Cards! Stitch any of our hobby embroidery designs onto the back of a utility vest or a cozy quarter-zip for a personalized present they can wear while enjoying their favorite pastime!


We have SEW many gift ideas for the ladies, but our #1 recommendation has to be the Zipper Bags 1,2,3 collection! These unique clutches have always been a fan favorite for their ease and versatility. With ten bag shapes, 12 fabric patterns, and 50 embroidery designs, you can create a personalized bag for everyone in your life in no time at all! For more embroidered bags, check out our Fashionably Folded and Hand-Stitched Cork Bag collections! 
What is one of the most infamous Christmas gifts given every year? Slippers! This year, instead of getting Mom a pair of store-bought shoes, create personalized slippers completely in the hoop! Our Embroidered Slippers collection can be customized with any of the 15 included motifs OR combined with another embroidery collection for even more personalization. Who doesn’t love a gift that’s creative and cozy?


Every holiday poses the same challenge: what do you get the person who already has everything?! Our trendy gift ideas are here to save the day! For the person who’s always on top of the trends, try our Floral Phrases collection! Detailed floral motifs surround popular quotes, making a fun addition to any ordinary pillow or tote bag! If you’re shopping for a teenager, our Hipster embroidery collection offers modern designs that young adults will love! Stitch the words “Thrifty” or “Hashtag” onto jersey knit and attach it to any sweatshirt to create a unique, trendy gift. 
There’s a GNOME way you haven’t noticed the gnome trend that’s sweeping the nation! In the garden, dressed as Santa or used as home decor, we just can’t get enough of these adorable characters! Our Gnomes for All Seasons collection is a perfect way to enjoy the gnome trend all year round!
