Do you need some gift ideas for the ones you are closest? Here are some homemade Christmas gift ideas for you to create. Let’s jump right in!
For the Kids – Crochet Dolls and Toys
Stuffed animals and cute dolls are always and will be on demand. If you have children on your gift-giving list maybe crocheting is the right project for you. Handmade dolls and toys are healthier and a little bit more affordable. Of course, they are priceless because of the time and effort you put in to make them. Even if crochet isn’t your strongest suit, you can still find easier patterns and start with smaller projects. Maybe you can give your little creations to grown-ups too, – the ones who are still kids in their hearts. Here are some FREE patterns from our blog:
Gifts for the Chilly Winter Days
Handmade knitted wearables might be the right gift for your loved ones. For the upcoming winter days, scarfs and shawls can be a good idea for last minute gifts to knit. You can easily make one on a weekend and maybe you can add a matching pair of hand warmers on the side. Or you can pair a scarf whit a matching beanie. Cozy and warm infinite scarfs are easy to make and you don’t need complicated stitches. All you need is a great yarn, maybe a patterned one. Knit with a simple stitch and let the yarn do the work for you.
If you are confident with your knitting skills, you can always knit some stylish jumpers or cardigans for your family members but these are the risky (They might not like them!), and a lot more time-consuming gift choices.
Knitted Pouches and Sleeves
If you need a simple and less time-consuming gift project, all you need are some yarn, knitting needles, and basic knitting knowledge. These knitted pouches can be used as glass cases, make-up bags, purses for changes and pencil cases. You can easily make one in hours while watching TV. If you make them a little bit bigger, they can be used as laptop sleeves, book covers and tablet cases too.
These can be the best choices for knitted Christmas gifts. Please don’t forget to tag us to your Christmas creations (@hobiumyarns) and you can also use the hashtags #hobiumyarns and #lovehobium to be featured on our social media accounts.
