Everyday Creative Adventures

12 Days of Crochet Gift Giving – Easy-to-Make Holiday Gifts

The holidays can be hectic and even the most organized person can struggle to keep up. With family dinners, and coordinating travel plans it’s inevitable that something might slip through the cracks.

In case you ran out of time or forgot a present here or there, I’ve put together this creative list of easy-to-make holiday crochet gift ideas. These crochet patterns are what you’ve been looking for thoughtful and heartfelt gifts.

Besides making these gifts for the holiday, they could also be used as last-minute crochet gifts when you’re looking for something unique and handmade. 

You can make these last-minute crochet projects on a weekend, and some of them in a couple of hours. But they look detailed and your loved ones will be grateful to receive a handmade gift. These easy crochet patterns include crochet gifts for men, women, and kids.

There are lots of great gift ideas to choose from, so see which ones stand out to you!

Easy Thick Crochet Wash Dishcloths

These dishcloths are a wonderful gift idea for the person who spends their time in the kitchen. Since these are crocheted using two balls of yarn at once, rather than a single thread, they’re squishy and durable. Strong enough to hold up against those holiday casserole dishes, or gentle enough to use as a washcloth in the shower. Include them in your face wash and reusable face scrubbies basket from above or put them in with a cookbook for a friend.

These would go great in a care basket if you’re making a set as crochet washcloths. They’re also incredibly practical in the kitchen and hold up better than commercial dish towels. Stitch a set up in no time.
