Michael's gift card is #2 best gift for crocheter or knitter.1. Gift Card to The Craft Store

Number one in our list is a gift card to buy more yarn :). Is very practical, because the crocheter in your life can pick any yarn by herself/himself and not only save your time, but also get exactly hat they want. You can buy a gift card to stores like JOANN or Michaels in almost any supermarket. You can also buy an e-card directly in the chosen store or on Amazon and send it to the recipient by e-mail.

Price: Varies – you can decide how much you want to spend. 


A yarn colorpack set by Hobbi

2. Yarn, yarn and even more yarn!

A skein yarn is the ultimate gift, second best on our list. After all, the second most popular hobby among crocheters is yarn hoarding 🙂 Choosing a yarn can be tricky if you don’t know anything about it. Also, it maybe doesn’t have that Wow-look to your eyes. If so, the safe option is to buy a yarn set consisting of a few skeins: a so-called colorpack. If your budget allows you to buy a considerable amount of yarn, don’t diversify too much. Skeins of yarn in color sets can be small, so if you are buying color packs, grab a few in identical colors. If you are buying an individual skein of yarn, pick a few skeins in 2-3 matching colors of the same brand line. This way, it will give you a few more more options to use them together. Generally, matching gradient colors, like the yarn set by Hobbii shown in the photo are more popular than contrasting ones. You can buy yarns in big box stores like  WalMart or you can do it on-line.

Approx. price: $4 – sky is the limit

4. Yarn Bowl

If you want your gift to be funny or cute, apart from being practical, a yarn bowl can do this beautifully. There is a wide range of bowls. They can be ugly, like this one, or sweet like a kitten… and everything in between. A less pricy option is a wooden yarn bowl sold in a yarn stores.

Yarn Ball Winder is a good idea for a gift for crocheter5. Yarn Winder

A yarn winder transforms hanks or skeins into center-pull balls of yarn which are convenient to use. Maybe you were used as a human yarn winder in childhood, like I was. I remember long hours of winding a yarn when my mom was unravelling old sweaters. I wish I had a yarn winder back then!

Crochet Hook Set

6. Crochet Hook Set

Although your fellow crocheter surely owns many crochet hooks, a set of good ergonomic hooks is always welcome. A very popular set of a good quality hooks is made by Clover; you can also buy handmade hooks, but this is more expensive ($25- $50 per crochet hook). Personalized Crochet Hooks or Accessories: for an absolutely unique and individual gift, it’s never out of place to get crochet hooks or accessories customized with the crocheter’s name or initials. photo: Furscrochet.com

Moreover, they will always be a handy and beloved resource, even if the internet is down or power is out.

A wooden blocking board will be a very elegant idea as well. It’s purpose is the same as blocking mats, but for smaller projects like squares (joined together afterwards to make a blanket).

Yarn swift13. Yarn Swift

Another childhood memory – being asked to hold my arms in the air, just for a few minutes when my mom wound balls from hanks (A hank is a yarn wound in a shape which resembles a baguette).
