Finding gifts for crocheters is a nightmare for everyone except crocheters. It’s such a nuanced hobby that it’s almost impossible for a non-crocheter to know what to get for their favourite ‘hooker’. It’s like if someone asked to me to buy a gift for someone who enjoyed fishing as a hobby. I wouldn’t have a clue where to begin. I mean I know fishing rods exists but where to start?
This is why I thought I’d pop together this post so that crocheters can send their loved ones here for gift inspiration for special occasions. Hot tip: If your buying for a crocheter and you’re not sure what hook size to get and you want it to be a surprise, for for a 4mm hook. It’s one of the most common and most used of all the hook sizes. Most crocheters will agree you can never have too many 4mm hooks. Here are my top 13 picks for gifts for crocheters.
The perfect gift for a committed beginner or an expert who wants to upgrade their hooks. Clover hooks are a crocheters dream and definitely my preferred hook. I still love and use other hooks but Clovers just speak my stitching language if you know what I mean.
Furls hooks are completely divine and a lovely special gift for a crocheter you love. They’re highly sought after in the crochet community and from the reviews I’ve read, they’re a dream to crochet with. I haven’t tried one myself but from what I’ve heard they have a lovely weight to them and the yarn smoothly glides over the metal finish. Doesn’t that sound delicious?
One of the safest gifts you can buy for a crocheter – a gorgeous leather hook organiser! It’s the type of thing a crocheter would never buy for themselves (we spent most of our money on yarn!) so it’s a lovely luxury item for a gift.
If you’ve ever made pom poms by hand, you’ll know how necessary these things are. An ideal gift for someone who likes to make lots of beanies or cute blankets with poms at the corners.
If you know of a crocheter who doesn’t have a yarn bowl, this is the ideal gift. For real.
Crocheting is hard work, especially if you’re a touch obsessive about it (I may have crocheted for 8 hours straight over the weekend) and your muscles can get mighty sore. This lovely little tin of muscle rub would be a great little gift for a crocheter to pop in their work basket.
Firstly, if you’re going to buy one of these it needs to be before the end of January 2018 because sadly they’re closing their doors. I have a beautiful Happy Hook I bought a few years ago and I love it. They’re just a delight to work with and a lovely affordable present for the crocheter you love.
These little bags are such a genius idea for crocheting on the run. In fact I just bought one for airplane and car crocheting and also crocheting on the way to the shops to get my coffee. Never waste one second when you could be crocheting!
As a seasoned crocheter I can’t get enough of little notions cases. I use them to keep all the bits pieces together I need for individual projects and they’re also great for travel. I particularly loved this one because it opens right out and makes a little basket so you don’t have to rummage around in a pencil case style bag looking for things you can’t see.
The perfect gift for crochet fan girls. You know when you just love something so much you want the world to know? Crochet is bae indeed.
Give your favourite crocheter this sweet pin to wear on their collar or on their notions bag for a subtle little nod to the hobby they love.
Handmade wooden blocking boards are a crocheters dream – I love this one from Chetnanigans on Etsy. A very safe purchase for a gift for a crocheter.
A great gift for any crocheter who wants to be a part of a community, learn new skills each month and get lessons and patterns for useful and modern crochet projects.
