Gift Ideas for Crocheters
Do you have a draw-a-blank syndrome someone asks you what gifts you'd like to receive? Me too! Or maybe crochet is a foreign language to you, but you need the perfect gift idea for someone who loves to crochet. I've got you covered!
This list of gifts for people who crochet is full of items I own and love or covet and have added to my own wish list. Whether you're shopping for Christmas gifts, Mother's Day (or Father's Day) or a birthday gift idea, these gifts for crocheters can be enjoyed year round.
Share This List of Crochet Gift Ideas
If you're a crocheter, send this list to your friends and family to provide some not-so-subtle "inspiration" for their purchases. My hope is that you can just email this list straight over to the nearest elf in your family and set them to work on shopping for you.
(Or perhaps you're your own personal elf, in which case you can just start treating yourself this instant!)
Small and Useful Items for Stocking Stuffers
While I tried to focus on some unique gifts for people who love to crochet, there are many utilitarian items crocheters can often use more of.
Many of these type of gifts are also small and perfect for stocking stuffers. If you want to give the gift of something you know will get used possibly daily, you can't go wrong with:
- cute and unique scissors
- stitch markers
- crochet notebook to keep track of stitches and ideas
- snag-free safety pins
- yarn needles (aka tapestry needles)
- fur pom poms to top hats
- pom-pom makers in different sizes
Best Place to Buy Gifts For Crocheters
When you're shopping for gifts for people who crochet, there are many places to look for the perfect item. Of course, you can find a ton of gift ideas for crocheters on Amazon (see my favorites here), but there are some other sources you may not have thought of.
- Etsy - here you'll find some more unique gifts than you might find at your big box hobby store.
- Your local yarn store - just search "yarn store" in your maps app and you'll find any shops nearby. These can be great for buying gorgeous high-end hanks of yarn, but also items like special buttons, project bags and sometimes things like locally-made yarn bowls.
- Larger chain stores like Michaels, Joann's and Hobby Lobby.

Books About Crochet

Practical Gifts Crocheters Might Not Buy Themselves
In my experience, crocheters are quite a resourceful bunch. But as a result, we often make do without some of the nice-to-have supplies that make our projects or our lives so much easier. These aren't the most glamorous gift ideas for crocheters on this list, but they just might get the most use!

Enamel Pins for Crocheters
Enamel pins are a gift idea for crocheters that can be funny, adorable or a nice mix of both. Often crocheters love to add enamel pins to their project bags to show off a bit of personalized pride for the hobby.

Gifts Every Crocheter Needs
There are certain items crocheters can always use more of. If you're buying a gift for someone who crochets, you will rarely go wrong with these easy ideas.
While they're not the most unique gift ideas, gift cards allow the ultimate freedom for the recipient. Crocheters do love to shop for yarn. And we often have personal preferences about fiber type and weight that outsiders might not understand.
A gift card can be a thoughtful gift that's also hard to get "wrong." Here are some places a crochet lover might like to receive a gift card to:
• A Local Yarn Shop - These shops tend to offer premium yarn, so this may feel like a really special gift. The cost of getting yarn for an entire project might be a bit higher, so you may want to factor that into the gift card amount.
• LionBrand.com - Lion Brand offers a nice mix of economy and affordable higher end yarns. They also collaborate with independent designers to sell crochet kits. A gift card allows a crocheter to choose any crochet or knit kit they fall in love with. (See all the Make & Do Crew kits here!)
• KnitPicks.com - Knit Picks can be a really good place to look for high quality knit and crochet accessories like wooden knitting needles, crochet hooks and cute cases to carry them in.
Well, this one is a bit of a no-brainer, isn't it? Yarn can be a great gift idea IF you know what type the recipient wants. If you're not sure, go with a gift card. It's not super helpful for us crocheters or knitters to receive a couple beautiful, but random, skeins of yarn. Yes, of course, it's fun, but it's not always easy to find a use for that one pretty ball of yarn.
Instead, your more of your loved one's go-to favorite yarn can be one of the best gift ideas. It shows you care and that you're paying attention.

Thank you for a excellent article! This is perfect for my family and myself. I'm wanting the steamer and as always YARN. Happy holidays God bless
Jess Coppom says
Hey Julie, I put off getting a steamer for SO LONG and now I don't know what I was waiting for! It's really handy to have and I even use it instead of ironing my clothes.
Hope you get lots of yarn this year too!
Most of these links didn’t work & the cheaper amazon crochet hooks you recommended are currently unavailable! ?
I do love those scissors you have! Mine are Fiskars brand HUGE scissors that I commandeered off of my lovely aunt. (Of course she doesn’t know that) one day, my crochet supplies will be totally stylish & worth more than $1 ? thanksgor a great list!
Carol D Parker says
The word BAE means poo. Do you really want to use this word
Amber W says
What? lol. Are you serious?? Stay hip to the culture my friend....
Amanda M says
Hey 🙂 Some Millennial insight here: The word bæ supposedly means poo in another language, so don't use the a and e smooshed together like that. BAE and bae are acronyms that mean Before All Else. The only difference is that e being backwards and touching the a vs. written normally.
Amanda Miller says
I totally added several of these to my list! I'm actually going to get the ergonomic crochet hooks for myself since I added them too late 😉 LOVED this roundup!
Jess @ Make and Do Crew says
Yay! I actually bought two sets of these hooks because I tend to lose hooks and I never wanted to be without the perfect size. I hope you enjoy them!
