In my family gifts for your hobby or passion are a definite YES. We do give gifts of hobby passes and lessons.

 

For example, we gave ski season passes for Halloween gifts. On to skis, boots, ski attire as "possibly somebody needs" gifts. Little Christmas gifts - warmers, socks, hats, long underwears, helmets, boot driers, balaclavas, goggles. eta: I found 20 boxes of 10 warmers and tons of socks, DH bought 90% discount last spring. Perfect gifts.

If somebody bought me a cross-stitch kit or a sewing machine I think I would just about kiss them.

I love those types of gifts as I do a LOT of crafting for personal use, gifts and for profit. In fact this year I have made purses, infinity scarves, star wars amigurumi (not fun to make but son requested :\), coptic journals and various other projects for Christmas gifts and I typically just use what's already in my stash and then think of ideas based on that. My favorite gifts are things to do with crafting. No one else in my family does crafting except my husband's grandmother (wonderful woman), and she really loves when I make her things that she finds useful, she's started to make requests lol. She and my father-in-law are my favorite people to make things for because they are both really down to earth and appreciative of those types of things. It can be a bit of a challenge always thinking of ideas for father-in-law though. So back to the question, yes I would love gifts for my hobby as almost anything could be used for a project eventually. The only things I DO hoard is crafting tools and goods.

A good friend recently gave me some old embroidery kits that belonged to her mother. (Her mother recently moved from her own home to a lodge/assisted living, so she had to downsize.) I am in seventh heaven.

If my friend gave me her makeup kit I would just give her a hug.
