I really enjoy crocheting. I find it a relaxing and soothing way to be creative. I have made a couple of blankets that I’ve always given away as gifts. And that’s one thing about a crochet lover; they love to give their projects away as gifts! I have received three blankets as gifts, and I treasure every one of them because I know how much effort has gone into making them.
On a side note, if you come to my house, please don’t start looking in my cupboards because you will find yarn stashed everywhere! When my husband gets in the mood to organize things around the house, I always wonder how long it will be until he finds a random stash. Trust me; it’s never a long time!
I hope you find the perfect crochet present within the following list of gift ideas.
As a lover of yarns and crochet gifts myself, I’m here to help you out today with the following list of best gifts you can give the yarn lover in your life. If you have a family member who enjoys making crochet items, you’ll hopefully find the perfect gift idea here!
I definitely have a yarn bowl on my want list! I love them as they are super useful, and they also look fantastic. If your crochet friend doesn’t like this as a gift, I don’t know what would make them happy! This is a great gift idea as your ball of yarn will stay put! Honestly, I found it hard to choose which one to display here because they are all so beautiful. I’ll add two different types and I’ll leave the tough decision up to you to decide on which one you get!
Wooden yarn storage bowl
This beautifully crafted bowl is made out of tumeric and rosewood, and it will be sure to delight the crocheter in your life. The bowl is approximately 7" in diameter and 3" tall. It will prove to be a very useful gift.Check prices here!
A yarn bowl will help keep your wool organised and untangled while crocheting. It also helps to keep yarn clean. Additionally, it looks great while your project is in progress. To use a yarn bowl, simply thread the wool into the groove and start your project.
While these next couple of gifts may not be a super useful tool like some of the other ideas here, they would still make excellent presents for people who crochet. Crochet jewellery items make great stocking stuffers as they are small and unique. The first gift is the sweetest brooch.

Yarn cutter pendant
Sometimes you need something that is just super functional and you wonder why you never thought of it before! That’s where something like a yarn cutting pendant comes into the picture. It’s one of the best gift ideas for people who are constantly looking around to see where they’ve placed their scissors!

I love a novelty mug as much as the next person, which is why I think a mug is a perfect present for people who crochet. In fact, I don’t think there’s a single person who wouldn’t love a mug like this one.
Crochet travel mug
A travel mug is so handy for a couple of different reasons. Firstly, they are great if you are going somewhere and want to keep your drink warm while you travel there. Secondly, travel mugs can help prevent your drink from going everywhere if you accidentally knock your cup.

Ok, so moving on from bags… and onto a yarn ball winder. A winder is essential if you’ve picked up skeins of yarn from your local yarn shop and it isn’t in a neat little ball. The winder will shape your yarn so that it is easier to unravel as you crochet. This should mean for quicker, tangle-free crocheting!
Stanwood Needlecraft yarn winder
This yarn ball winder is a super handy tool for keeping your yarn neat and compact. This particular style allows you to pull the yarn from the centre, keeping your yarn in good shape. This winder is heavy-duty, and can hold up to 10oz of yarn.Check prices here!
A yarn swift is a gadget that looks like an umbrella! It is a useful tool when winding skeins of yarn into balls. You can either hand-wind or use a winder to transform your yarn into compact balls.
I have added a video created by Knit picks to show you how easy and helpful a yarn swift can be to use.

Ergonomic crochet hooks
Crocheting can be tough on the hands because of how the hook and yarn are gripped. The best way to ensure you don’t get achy hands is to buy ergonomic crochet hooks. These take the pressure off your hands so you can crochet for as long as your little heart desires.
Clover Amour crochet hooks
Coming in a variety of sizes, this pack of crochet hooks makes the perfect gift. These hooks are so nice to use as they are comfortable to grip and they help to reduce fatigue. They come in a range of bright, fun colors too.Check prices here!

Pom poms are the best finishing item to go on beanies! You might as well make your crocheter’s life a little bit easier by buying them a pom pom maker.
A steamer is a great idea as blocks generally need to be steamed in order for them to hold their shape. Steam blocking squares makes blocks fit better together when piecing a blanket or other project together.
This handheld steamer will make blocking your project a breeze. Not only will this steamer be a great gift for the crocheter, but it will also steam garments and clothes.Check prices here!
