6. If your soft craft stash is bulging at the seams, why not try a slightly more complex make? Retro radios are all the rage at the moment and this felt tea cosy ticks all the boxes. It could even be turned into a sewing machine cover if your loved one has a passion for sewing.

7. Create a statement piece of jewellery using a handful of craft stash essentials. Made from baker's twine, this necklace can easily be personalised and made using their favourite colours.

8. Need we say anymore? These chocolate truffles will be sure to go down a treat!

Coat in cocoa, crushed nuts, freeze-dried strawberries, or coconut - the possibilities are endless!

Present in a decorated Bare Basics Nesting box and place the truffles in mini cupcake cases to create the perfect gift.

You could even go all out and decorate the inside of the box with Papier Patch papers.

9. If you're tight on crafting time then this lovely stitched keyring might just be the answer. Use a selection of ribbons to create the main body of the keyring and finish off with a complementary button.
