Crochet for gift giving

You have a special event coming up, what do you give as a gift?

Crochet is a versatile craft that can be used to create a wide variety of gifts for every occasion. Whether you're looking for a thoughtful gift for a friend or family member, or a unique present for a special event, crochet has you covered.

Here are a few crochet gift ideas for every occasion:

  • Birthdays: For birthdays, you could give a crochet scarf, hat, or pair of mittens to keep the recipient warm in the winter. You could request your crochet expert to make a blanket, throw pillow, or stuffed animal. For a more personalized gift, you could give a crochet tote bag with the recipient's name on it, or even a piece of crochet jewelry in their favorite color.
  • Holidays: For Christmas, you could give a stocking for the newest member of your family, a Christmas ornament, or a new tree skirt. You could also give a winter hat, scarf, or mittens for the recipient to wear on Christmas morning. For Hanukkah, how about a menorah cover or dreidel bag? For Kwanzaa, you could give a kinara mat or candle holders.
  • Weddings: For weddings, a beautiful crochet lace shawl or wrap for the bride, or a shawls for the bridesmaids. If you know well in advance what the bride will be wearing, you could request a crochet expert to make a Veil!  For the men in the Bridal party, a crochet scarf or tie. You could also use a crochet ring bearer pillow, flower girl basket, or wedding blanket.
  • Baby showers: For baby showers, crochet baby blanket, hat, booties, or sweater. You could also give a  a stuffed animal, lovey, or crib mobile that matches the blanket.
  • Other occasions: Crochet gifts are also perfect for other occasions, such as housewarming parties, graduations, and teacher appreciation gifts. You could give a Eco-friendly cotton dishcloth,  a market bag, coaster, or basket for a housewarming gift. You could give a scarf, hat, or tote bag for a graduation gift. You could give a coffee mug cozy (Mug Hug), apple cozy, or bookmark for a teacher appreciation gift.


Dave the Bear Lovey is a perfect gift for a child over the age of 3 years.  This can be used when a child is anxious.


No matter what the occasion, a crocheted gift is a thoughtful and unique way to show someone you care. Here are a few tips for choosing the right crochet gift for the occasion:

  • Consider the recipient's interests. What do they like to do in their free time? What are their hobbies? Choosing a gift that is related to the recipient's interests shows that you put extra thought into it.
  • Think about the climate. If the recipient lives in a cold climate, you might want to get them a scarf, hat, or mittens. If they live in a warm climate, you might want to crochet them a tote bag, beach towel, or sun hat.
  • Add a personal touch. To make your gift even more special, you can add a personal touch. For example, you could have the recipient's name crocheted into the gift, or choose a yarn color that is their favorite.

No matter what crochet item you choose to give, the recipient is sure to appreciate the thoughtfulness you put into giving them a handmade gift.
