Why buy at Argos?

Having a hobby you enjoy can often be the perfect antidote to the stresses of daily life or a hectic day at work - so check out our comprehensive hobbies and crafts range. Whether you're looking to try something totally different or you're just after a new bit of kit to help you take your hobby of choice to the next level, we've got you covered. Feeling creative? Our quality art sets are the perfect place to start. And if you can't decide between oil, acrylic or watercolour, no worries; some of our options have got the lot! 

Perhaps you want to hone your sewing skills? You'll be able to create all sorts of designs once you've got yourself some fabric and patterns - and of course, you'll want a sewing machine as well. Why not take a look at our Singer sewing machines for starters? We've got a model for all budgets and requirements - and if you've got plans to create patchwork quilts in particular, then go for a specialised quilting design. 

Into model making? Be sure to check out our brilliant selection of Airfix models. You'll have all the parts necessary to create a completely realistic rally car, plus paints and brushes. 

Looking for the perfect keepsake present for a friend or family member? You can't go wrong with a beautiful Parker pen.

Why not get into the great outdoors with a set of binoculars for a spot of wildlife watching? And if stargazing sounds more appealing, then set up a telescope for your very own at-home viewing point.
