Features To Look For In Choosing The Best Gifts for Crocheters 


If the crochet lover in your life has “everything,” then you may want to think outside the box. Buying them hooks they already have probably isn’t the best option and they probably have the essential crochet supplies.  Look at funny crochet gifts, custom products and unique items that they will be impressed with. 


Even if you don’t know anything about crochet, you can still find something specific for the crocheter in your life that will appeal to their passions. You can find novelty items such as clothing, mugs and decorative objects that are still related to crochet. 


A gift for a crocheter can be practical and can assist with their crocheting or it can be something that brings joy. Think about what you want your gift to do and what would be best for the recipient. 


One of the great things about crocheting is that it’s a hobby that doesn’t require a lot of “things.” You can make masterpieces with just a skein of yarn and a hook. However, there are things that every crocheter always needs more of. One of those things is yarn. A crocheter can never have too much yarn! A gift card to the crocheter’s favorite yarn store is truly the perfect gift. Think of other things that a crocheter can run out of, like a notebook, and will always need. 


If you’re aware of what your crocheter is into these days, that can help you find a great gift. If you see your crocheter making a lot of projects in a certain category, you could get them a book of patterns related to that project type. 

Whether you are shopping for Christmas gifts, birthday gifts or any other occasion, I hope this list of the Best Gifts for Crocheters has helped you find some great gifts for the crocheter in your life.

Gifts For Crocheters: FAQs

What Do You Give A Crocheter Who Has Everything?

If you are searching for a gift for a crocheter who has everything, you can give them gift cards to their favorite yarn store, a personalized notebook with their name on it, or a funny crochet-related mug or item of clothing. These are products that any crocheter will appreciate. 

What Do Crocheters Actually Want as a Gift?

From my experience as an avid crocheter, anything yarn or crochet-related is very appreciated. There are lots of funny yarn or crochet related mugs, framed quotes, shirts and tote bags that make wonderful gifts. Also, custom products, such as a personalized notebook or bag, are very well-received and special gifts. 

What Do You Buy Someone Why Crochets?

A great go-to gift for avid crocheters is a gift card to a store where a crocheter can buy yarn. Crocheters normally prefer to pick out yarn directly as it’s usually project-specific and in person, if possible. A gift card for yarn may sound impersonal but it’s something that the crocheter will actually use!

Is Yarn a Good Gift for a Crocheter?

Absolutely, yarn is what every crocheter needs! I would recommend giving yarn in the form of a gift card though (unless you know exactly what the crocheter wants). Shopping for yarn is half of the fun of crocheting so a shopping spree at the yarn store is a fantastic gift. 

What Does Every Crocheter Need?

Crocheting requires a crochet hook, yarn, measuring tape, yarn needle and scissors. Those are the essential items required to crochet. Outside of that, there are crochet supplies that can make crocheting easier such as a gauge swatch ruler, row/stitch counter, a yarn holder, a crochet hook case, a yarn carrying bag and blocking materials. 

Final Thoughts

It can be difficult to buy gifts for a crocheter, especially if you aren’t familiar with the hobby. Hopefully, this list of the best gifts for crocheters can help you find the perfect gift for the crocheter in your life.
