Fast Crochet Gift Ideas for the Holidays

By Rachel Choi – 6 Comments

Now that the holidays are approaching and somehow always end up getting here faster than I think, it’s about time to brainstorm ideas for what to make as gifts. Like many of you, I don’t have much time to make a bunch of large gifts for everyone, so quick, easy and still knock your socks off great, is what I’m going for.

Here are some things that I’ve been considering:

Dishcloth – Just about everyone has a kitchen or something to clean, right? Dishcloths are so fast and easy to crochet and can be used for more than just dishes. Crochet Pattern: Dishcloth with Ridges

Wine Bottle Cozy – Wine has to be one of the most given gifts around the holidays. So why not add a touch of crochet to your wine gift? Crochet Pattern: Easy Wine Bottle Cozy

Animal Bookmarks – There are fast and cute to make for kids, or even adults (like me) who just like cute things. Crochet Pattern: Animal Bookmarks

Beanie – Beanies are always a winter classic! Men, women, boys, girls, and babies…everyone can wear a beanie. Plus they are pretty simple to make if you use the right pattern. Crochet Pattern: Family Beanie Set – 6 sizes

Wrist Warmers – These are pretty fast because they are just rectangles sew into the shape of wrist warmers. If you know the person wears wrist warmers, I think having another pair would never hurt. Crochet Pattern: Beginner’s Wrist Warmers with Ridges

Scarf – Only make a scarf if you know he/she wears scarves. If they do, then that’s great, because scarves are pretty fast to make too! Feel free to use my scarf patterns. (I would list them here but there are too many) You can use the search box at the top of the page and type in “scarf” to find all the scarf patterns.

Do you have a quick crochet gift idea that you would like to share?

    That wine bottle cosy is a brilliant idea! Thanks, Rachel!

    I’m planning to make some scarves and dishcloths as well. Recently, I discovered tawashi (Japanese dishcloths), which have some interesting patterns. It’s really easy to make and looks quite fancy!

    I thought it might make a good gift as a facecloth along with some nice soap or bath/shower gel, which you can get fairly cheaply in posh bottles!
