Are you looking for some ideas for some handmade gifts you can make for Christmas this year? If you can crochet, there are a myriad of ideas out there, absolutely worth your time to make! It’s so touching to receive a handmade gift, one that you know a lot of thought and time has gone into. It’s such a neat experience for me to be able to make handmade gifts for my family and friends… I think about them as I make their gift, so there’s the extra special gift of having spent hours and hours (and hours and hours) thinking about the recipient that is built into this gift of love!
So, if you want to give that kind of love this gift-giving season, you’ve still got plenty of time to crochet something amazing. And I have got some great crochet patterns for you!

A crocheted hat is a practical and lovely gift. This Brisk Beanie Crochet Pattern from captain of the hooks is trendy with its multiple textures and crochets up quickly with a 5 mm crochet hook. This is the kind of gift you can whip up in a couple of hours!
Isn’t this sweet vertical-striped Borealis Hat Crochet Pattern adorable? I love the rainbow yarn used in this example to make a super fun and brightly coloured hat for a child, or anyone who loves a pop of colour!
If you’re looking for something a little more Christmassy to make as a gift this season, check out this Vintage Crochet Granny Square Tree Skirt Pattern from Heirloom Knit Patterns. Because it’s a vintage pattern, you can get the .pdf for just a couple bucks! And you can choose the colours that suit your recipients (or your own… ;)) to make a perfectly customized tree skirt!
If granny squares aren’t your thing, this Crocheted Nativity Tree Skirt Pattern might be more your speed. I love the simplicity of the two colours and the multiple panels with different scenes.
I also love this Rustic Wonderland Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern with a chunky yarn and fantastic wooden buttons, this would be perfect for a farmhouse Christmas style.
Who doesn’t love snowmen? These Little Snowman Crocheted Christmas Ornaments would make perfect co-worker gifts! I love the embroidered snowflakes on the hat and scarf and the little stick arms on the other snowman are classic!
Perhaps you’d rather make a Snowman Christmas Ball Ornament; this little crochet pattern would also make a great gift for co-workers. I think they would also go well at craft sales if you’re the kind of person who makes for craft sales. Simple and quick, these would probably come together in a couple of hours, too.
Update: unfortunately, this exact pattern is not available any longer, but check out this cute Snowman Ornament Crochet Pattern as an alternative.
For a more traditional Christmas Ball Ornament Crochet Pattern, there’s this super colourful option, which I love and also think would come together quickly! How fun would a bunch of these be on a colourful tree? oOooOhh or they’d be even more perfect at a daycare or pre-school!? When I was a kid, we had glass ball ornaments, which could (and did!) break. Since I’ve had kids, I’ve only bought plastic ornaments so I wouldn’t have to worry about breakage; I could let my kids decorate and touch the tree without being a ball of worry. These would totally work to let kids decorate with!
While we’re in this colourful mood, you should also check out these cute Colourful Little Christmas Trees. I love the fun stripes and the beads that add so much character to these sweet little decorations. They would go along perfectly with those snowmen ball ornaments at your craft sale!
I’m also a big fan of these stockings! You can make this Mini Stocking Crochet Pattern into a bunting like these, with multiple colours, stripes, and follow the rainbow! What a fun decoration! OoooOooh… you could make 25 of them for an advent calendar bunting!
Here’s another great pattern to turn into a great garland: this Christmas Lights Crochet Pattern can be made into individual little ornaments or strung together for an adorable bunting! How fun are these?!
So, you see? With all these quick projects you could make in time for the holidays, you can really give a handmade gift to just about anyone you care about! Time to pull out that yarn and the hook, pick up a pattern and get to work! Or Pin it for later!
