Gift Ideas for Crocheters

If you’re looking for gift ideas for someone that you love that loves to crochet, then you are in the right place!

And if you’re that person, you can send this list on to the people that will be shopping for you to make it easier on them and give them a not-so-subtle hint for what type of gifts you would enjoy!

And, bonus, you don’t even have to leave your house to get any of it!

It can be difficult to buy gifts for the adults in your life. The things that you know they enjoy, they often buy for themselves. But lucky you, the person you’re searching for ideas for has a hobby with TONS of opportunities for gift ideas!

Below, I have listed some of my favorite picks for gifts for crocheters- whether that’s for your mom, grandma, sister, aunt, brother, nephew…. or even for yourself! These are all things that I either already enjoy or are currently on my own wish list.

I’ve broken this list of gifts for those who crochet into 8 categories to help make it easier to navigate. I hope you find something you enjoy! I know there are several things on this list I would love!

25 Christmas Gift Ideas for Crocheters

Note: I wrote this guide mostly directed at women, as in my (albeit limited) experience, the majority of crocheters are women. I don’t mean to exclude any male crocheters from this, and I do think there are many things on this list that would also apply to them. Specifically, the hooks, yarn, tools, subscriber boxes and other fiber arts items may be of interest to male crocheters- although you know whomever you are gifting to the best and something in one of the other categories may be just what he needs!

Crochet Hooks

Fancy hooks

This is the set of hooks that I’ve heard recommended the most, in pretty much every crochet community I am a part of. Clover makes amazing crochet hooks- they glide through the yarn beautifully. If your crocheter hasn’t treated herself to this set, you can’t do wrong to gift it to her!

If your recipient is looking to expand her fiber arts skills, a great choice is to try Tunisian crochet! I feel like it’s halfway between crochet and knitting and if she already knows how to crochet even a little bit, she can definitely learn to do Tunisian crochet. There are all sorts of varieties of hooks for Tunisian crochet, from simple fixed hooks, to really fancy hooks with interchangeable cables. You can really go wild-or not!

Lighted hooks

Now I don’t have any official statistics on this, but I would wager at least 80% of crocheters like to crochet in the evenings curled up on the couch. Lamplight is definitely not great when working with dark colors, so why not show how much you care for her eyes by gifting her a lighted crochet hook? They also come in ergonomic styles, so you’ll be helping her hands, too!

Yarn

Let’s be real, pretty much everyone who crochets also has a second hobby: yarn collecting. Why not enable her yarn collecting habit by gifting her some luxurious yarn that she wouldn’t normally get for herself?

Fancy yarn

I’m talking all of the more interesting fibers. Alpaca, merino wool, silk, etc. This are amazing fibers that make really beautiful projects out of even the simplest stitches, but they are often out of budget for the majority of us. Splurge on her!

Hand dyed yarn

Some of the most beautiful color combinations I have seen are from hand-dyed yarns. And you know that anything made from them will truly be one of a kind since each skein will be a little different. Encourage her to take a break from making things for everyone else and make something for herself with some unique hand-dyed yarn!

Local Yarn shop yarn

Getting overwhelmed with all this yarn talk and have no idea where to start? Do a Google search and see if there are any local yarn stores in your city or nearby. The workers there are extremely knowledgeable in everything yarn related and can help you pick a lovely gift- and they sell more than just yarn!

Crochet Tools

Maybe your crochet gift recipient already has amazing yarn and fancy hooks. What to do then? Well, there are always some fun and interesting items that can help a crochet addict out!

Yarn bowl

These are excellent for keeping her yarn from rolling around all over the place. They can be ceramic, wood, or anything really, but a quality item can show how you really feel about them!

Yarn tote

Maybe your crocheter isn’t able to sit at home to work, or she has to move her stuff around so much that she is afraid a yarn bowl would easily get misplaced or broken. How about a yarn tote? This handy bag can handle several skeins of yarn, will run the strand through the bag so the ball doesn’t have to roll around or get tangled, and keeps everything in one place for on the go work or just to keep small kiddos from getting into it. I mean, I know we’re here to crochet for kids, but we don’t need them to get into our supplies!

Stitch/row counter

Here’s something that could make her life a little easier- help her to count her stitches and rows on her bigger projects by getting her a quality stitch/row counter.

Yarn winder

This is an excellent gift by itself- it will help her rewind any skeins that are getting low and hard to keep together or just rewind into smaller cakes if that’s how she likes to work. But it would also be great with one of the yarn choices mentioned earlier- they often come in what is called a hank, and need to be wound into a usable skein or cake of yarn and a yarn winder makes that process go much quicker and easier than doing it by hand.

Custom Labels

It’s always nice to be able to claim your work, but when you’re a crocheter, it can be a bit of a challenge to do this if people don’t know you or don’t remember who made it for them. So why not get her some custom labels? If she just crochets as a hobby, get her name on them. If she has a side business, get her some with her business name, logo or both.

Crochet Jewelry

Maybe your intended recipient already has all that kind of stuff. She’s been doing this for a long time, or maybe you’ve been buying this kind of stuff already and you’re looking for a more unique crochet gift. How about some crochet jewelry? I found this cute Etsy shop on Instagram and I love their different options!

Crochet hook pendant

Not only does it make a cool statement piece that looks beautiful and shows off her personality, this crochet hook pendant can also function! It could also be a great option for someone who misplaces their hook often- now it just hangs around their neck!

Unfortunately, this Easy shop has been impacted by the COVID-19 measures being put into place around the world and shipping will take an uncertain amount of time. But if you’re ok with waiting, check out the rest of this shop- there are some amazing pieces there!

Crochet hook earrings

Help her show off her love of crochet with these cute crochet hook earrings!

Crochet Thread Cutter pendant

Does your crocheter misplace her scissors often? Get her this handy thread cutter pendant (or this circular thread cutter pendant) to wear whenever she’s working and she’ll never have to hunt for scissors again!

Crochet Merchandise

No gift guide for crocheters would be complete without the crochet merchandise stuff- that’s the stuff that we often won’t buy for ourselves no matter how cute we think it is because we’re too busy buying yarn!

Bags

I don’t think I’ve met a crocheter yet that thinks you can’t have enough bags! Does she have a work in progress (wip)? She needs a project bag for that! Why not a cute one that also conveys her love of crochet?

Mugs

Again, I don’t have statistics here, but I do see quite a large overlap in coffee/tea drinkers and crocheters. Why not get her a cool mug that shows off her love of crochet? Bonus, if she works in a large office environment, she’ll always know which mug is hers!

Shirt

Shirts can be a little riskier of a gift buy, just due to the sizing. If you know your recipient very well though, then go for it! There are some adorable crochet shirts out there!

Subscriber boxes

This category kind of harkens back to the yarn category, although subscriber boxes do tend to include other little goodies with them, as well as a pattern that the yarn has specifically been curated for. And if you’re looking to spend a little more, than this is a cool option because you can choose to have a recurring monthly gift rather than a one-time gift.

Little Box of Crochet

From everything I’ve heard about subscription crochet boxes, Little Box of Crochet is like the gold-standard. Great yarns, great patterns, great extras. This box is delivered every two months, but you can choose to pay every month to help spread the cost around ($24 versus $47 or £18.95 versus £37.90- pounds are the base denomination for anyone else who may need a conversion). You can also buy past boxes as a one-time purchase for a lower price.

Darn Good Yarn

If Little Box of Crochet wins the gold, then Darn Good Yarn would definitely take the silver, being beat out by a nose. Not only is the yarn darn good, the company is, too! The yarn is made from recycled silk or natural fibers and the company helps to employ over 100 women in India who hand dye and spin the yarn, as well as adults with developmental disabilities who help to package the boxes. The price is also super attractive, starting at $10 per month. And you can skip a month with no penalty! (I’m not even an affiliate for them, I just think it’s a really cool subscription box option!)

Other Fiber Arts Items

Maybe your intended recipient is more on the adventurous side and enjoys finding new hobbies. Why not help her to branch out into other fiber arts?

Beginner knitting kit

A large part of being able to crochet and knit is being able to hold and work with the yarn. If you can do one, I totally believe you can learn to do the other as well. Why not gift her a beginner knitting kit? Bonus, it also shows that you know the difference between knitting and crocheting!

Dying kit

I’ve already established that collecting yarn is a crocheter’s second hobby. But it could be fun to learn how to dye your own yarn! I haven’t tried anything like this, but I would love to get into it, maybe when my little helpers are a little bigger. This can really take her handmade gift to the next level by using her own hand-dyed yarn! Also, check out the yarn dye kits on Etsy for some other options.

Embroidery kit

This is on a little bit different end of the spectrum, as it doesn’t use yarn like the other options here do. But it is still a beautiful and calming craft that almost anyone could try. Find a fun and quirky pattern to include with it, if you feel like. Pinterest has some great finds!

Weaving kit

The last option that I have for you is a different kind of yarn art. But this weaving kit looks like it would be a lot of fun and has a beautiful result that any crafter would be proud to make. If your crocheter is into trying new things, help her to try weaving out!

Other Items That Can Be Useful To a Crocheter

Most crocheters I know don’t just work at a table in silence. We like to sit on the couch and take part in the conversations around us, catch up on our latest binge worthy show, listen to podcasts or music or just watch our kids play. If you feel like all of the stuff mentioned above is too overwhelming or in the (unlikely) event she already has all of it, here are a few more options that both of you could enjoy!

Amazon fire stick

I have one of these and love it! I often put on Netflix or Pluto TV and just binge shows while I work, especially when I’m working late at night (I like having the sound to keep me company). You can even find Pandora, Spotify and other music apps to play over your TV.

Kindle Unlimited

Maybe her idea of a cozy evening is listening to a good book while she works on her latest project. With Kindle Unlimited, she can have unlimited access to tons of audiobooks, as well as to Kindle books for when she’s not working on something! If you know she would just want audiobooks, try an Audible membership.

Amazon Prime

Help her get her craft supplies in two days or less with an Amazon Prime membership gift! This is seriously the gift that keeps on giving!

These Amazon options are not crochet specific, but they are still things that I use often. I recently signed up for Kindle Unlimited and I’m loving all of the books that are now at my fingertips- including some great crocheting books!

With these 25 gift ideas for crocheters, you have so many options for so many cool gifts that any crocheter would love!
