    The Thunder Bay Press Craft kits are great because they help you create a perfect homemade gift. I would use the Star Wars kit for my nephew since he loves anything Star Wars, it would make a great Christmas gift for him. I would use the Peanuts kit as a gift for my sister as she is beginning to Crochet and love the Peanut characters and the Disney kit I would make the characters for a co -workers baby shower as that is her nursery’s theme.
