Our Gift Shop is full of thoughtfully crafted items that celebrate the handmade and the beautiful. For very special holiday giving, here are some of our favorite ideas!

They include four transfer designs that depict a year in the life of a tree, from bubbly spring to serene winter, plus a beautiful woodgrain design and alphabet. The packet contains just the transfer patterns, while the kit also has all the tools and fabric to get started right away!
Liberty of London Tana Lawn Bundles
Liberty of London’s Tana Lawn is quite simply exquisite! This 100% cotton fabric has the drape and softness of fine silk and is printed with the cleanest, most beautiful detail imaginable.

Baggu Leather Totes and Pouches
The Baggu Leather Tote is what all of us at Purl Soho hope to find under the tree come Christmas morning! It has a clean, chic shape and is big enough to haul all your everyday stuff without compromising style. Smaller, but no less special, are Baggu’s Leather Pouches (available in medium or small) that come in a vibrant candy bright assortment of colors. Either (or both!) would be a generous and gorgeous holiday gift!
Who doesn’t love a great crafting book? Denyse Schmidt’s Modern Quilts is a stunning new collection of distinctive and tasteful quilt patterns perfect for the accomplished quilter and newbie stitcher alike! Heather Ross Prints is both a whimsical celebration of her quirky prints and projects, as well as a technical instruction manual on making and using custom prints for all kinds of things, from wall paper to shower curtains.
Bellocq Teas are aromatic, delectable, and visually stunning! With amazing flavors ranging from the sophisticated rose-scented Queen’s Guard to the playful chocolate-flavored Little Dickens, it can be very hard to pick a favorite! Boxed sets solve this conundrum with an inspired assortment of black, green, or herbal blends! Or if you’ve already picked a favorite, a handsome canister of a beloved Bellocq Tea will be a happy surprise under any tree!
Utility Canvas Bags and Throws
Utility Canvas’s bags and throws embrace timeless style with no effort at all! Useful, sturdy, and available in a rich rainbow of colors, the Classic Field Tote makes an ideal gift. And if Santa were to tuck a durable, beautiful Quilted Throw inside, it would be an absolute showstopper!
