Looking for the perfect christmas gift ideas for crocheters or the yarn lover in your life? Are you a crocheter that isn’t quite sure what to tell loved ones you want for the holidays? Whether you’re just starting out with crochet or you’ve been doing it for years, you’re bound to find something worthy of making your list.
We can never have enough yarn! No matter the size of our stash, we’ll always make room for more. Some of my favourites include: Bernat Blanket, Mary Maxim Woodlands, Lion Brand Heartland, Hobbii Rainbow Cotton and Drops Air (to name just a few). I would recommend buying more than one ball of the same brand and/or colour if you are going to buy yarn.
2. Crochet Hooks
This Clover Amour crochet hook set gives you 10 of the most commonly used crochet hook sizes in one convenient set. The hooks have ergonomic handles which will help keep crocheting comfortable. They are a good quality set for beginners and experience crocheters alike. For the experienced crocheter that already has a set of hooks, check out these beautiful crochet hooks by Furls Crochet. I have a few of these hooks now and they are really comfortable to work with. Should anything happen to the hook you purchase, you can contact Furls and receive a replacement. Furls sells a few different styles of hook but my preference and recommendation is the Odyssey hooks. Check them out HERE.
3. Gift Cards to Buy Crochet Supplies
Can’t decide just what to get? A gift card to Amazon or to our favourite craft store will always be put to good use.
4. Yarn Ball Winder
A yarn ball winder makes winding yarn into neat and compact yarn balls and is a useful tool for any crocheter or yarn lover to have in their arsenal. I personally have this Marrywindix ball winder and it works great and is really cost effective.
5. Yarn Swift
A yarn swift works in conjunction with a ball winder to make it easier (and faster) to wind hanks of yarn into balls. Check out this yarn swift from Knitpicks.
6. Crochet Hook Case
This Teamoy Crochet Hook Case was the first case I ever used and it has been great. It holds my ergonomic hooks and a few added accessories. My husband bought me this Global Materials Leather Pencil Case for my furls crochet hooks and I love it. You can store hooks on one side and accessories on the other.
7. Embroidery Scissors
Sure, we could use any old pair of scissors but embroidery scissors are just prettier and fit nicely into smaller hook cases. These vintage style embroidery scissors and these cute stork scissors are fun choices.
8. Pom Pom Maker
These Clover Pom Pom Makers make pompom making an absolute breeze. I have the large set and I use them all the time.
9. Good Quality Tapestry Needles
Poor quality tapestry needles can make weaving ends in even more of a chore. These tapestry needles from Lion Brand are my favourites and the set includes a few different sizes.
6. Compression Gloves
Many crocheters experience hand and wrist pain after long boughts of crocheting. These compression gloves can be helpful in easing hand pain and swelling. I have a pair and they have definitely found them to be helpful.
7. Yarn Bag
This Teamoy Yarn Bag has enough storage to carry several skeins of yarn, a project, hook case and much more. It has a bunch of great features for both knitters and crocheters. I’ve had mine for over a year and it’s still in great shape. For travelling, I use this smaller Teamoy Yarn Bag. It holds less but it’s small enough for me to take on long car rides and still have leg room.
8. Garment Steamer
Blocking a completed project gives it that finishing touch and is an essential part of the crocheting process for many projects. Steam blocking is the fastest, easiest way to block and having a good garment steamer is critical. I swear by this Conair Turbo Extreme Steam Handheld Garment Steamer.
9. Yarn Bowl
A good yarn bowl helps keep your yarn from rolling all over the floor, getting messy and tangled. They come in all kinds of materials, sizes and styles. I haven’t used this one but I think this wooden yarn bowl is so pretty.
10. Crochet Themed Mug
There are so many cute crochet and maker themed mugs out there. 3AMGrace Designs has some really adorable mugs and so does Etsy. I also think this Accio Yarn mug from Amazon is really cute and is great Christmas gift idea for crocheters that are also Harry Potter fans as well.
11. Personalized Tags
If the crocheter in your life sells their projects or just likes to add a beautiful finishing touch, try getting some personalized tags for them to add to their projects. I get my personalized faux suede tags from Unwrapped Yarn on Etsy and they are perfect.
12. Gauge Swatch Measurement Tool
Gauge is the measurement of stitches and rows in a given measured space and it plays a huge role in crochet. I have a gauge swatch measurement tool that has a window in it to make counting my stitches to get that measurement a breeze. Unwrapped Yarn on Etsy has both pre-made styles and personalized styles. I got mine from her and it is by far one of my favourite tools to use and one of my favourite Christmas gift ideas for crocheters.
13. Safety Eyes
If your crocheter makes stuffed animals, then they need to have good quality safety eyes for that professional polished look. This set on Amazon is the one I use and order over and over again. It comes with a variety of sizes which is handy.
14. Crochet Pattern Books
There are plenty of places online to get free crochet patterns (my blog among them) but a crochet pattern book is a wonderful gift to give. I review crochet pattern books here on my blog and can testify that they make an excellent resource to have on hand. Here are the reviews of a few great titles to consider: Dinosaurs to Crochet, The Crocheter’s Skill-Building Workshop and Crochet Animal Rugs. This book called Complete Crochet Course: The Ultimate Reference Guide by Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby is also a fantastic reference and Christmas gift idea for crocheters.
15. Knitcrate Subscription Box
A Knitcrate Subscription Box is the gift that keeps on giving month after month and is perfect for the yarn lover in your life. Every month Knitcrate sends you one or more skeins of premium yarn and a pattern book with both a knit and crochet pattern using the yarn you received in your box. I’m not sure if every crate includes a little surprise, but my crate also came with a cute little locking stitch marker. Additional to the items that come in the Knitcrate, members receive 25% purchases made in the online store at Knitcrate.com. Use code LOOPY20 to get 20% off your first crate HERE. You can see my unboxing and unbiased review of my first Knitcrate subscription box HERE.
16. Blocking Matts
Blocking matts are a great asset when blocking your project. These blocking matts from KnitIQ have grid lines and raidal circles that help you block your projects more precisely.
