The hobbyist is a unique type of person, no matter their age. Both children and adult hobbyists are dedicated to their chosen area of expertise, and nothing will put a smile on their face quite like a new project.
To determine which kind of gift is right for your hobbyist, ask yourself:
- What is their hobby or can I introduce them to a new one?
- Should I get something which requires extra components or is an all in one gift?
- Are they interested in collecting, playing or creating?
