If you’re looking for some small easy crochet gifts that you can whip up in a flash, then THIS is the post for you! I’ve rounded up some of the best easy crochet gifts for you to wow your family and friends with. Some of these patterns make great stash busters too!

Crochet Nesting Basket

Please note this post is a directory of ideas, all patterns are linked below the images. Some patterns are video only which can be found further down the post. I work in UK terms.

Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions. Learn more about the eBook here.

When it comes to making gifts for others it’s easy to reach out for colours we love instead of what colours your recipient loves. If you need some inspiration for choosing yarn colours, click here.

Crochet Coasters

Crochet Coasters

Coasters are one of my most popular projects and I think it’s because they are so quick and easy to make. They are also super customisable, you can either crochet in a block colour, or why not change it up a little. Any DK weight yarn would be good for this project, ideally cotton, but acrylic will also be fine as a cup of tea or coffee in a mug shouldn’t get hot enough to melt the acrylic.

Crochet Nesting Baskets

Nesting baskets are always a winner in my eyes because they are so versatile. They can be used to organise any area of your home. Here are two examples of some baskets you could whip up. The first being a part of a trio of nesting baskets, click the link below for the pattern.

OR you can crochet a larger oval basket pictured below. This basket is a little bit larger to fit more in. I used an acrylic yarn to give a bit more of a floppy feel, but you could work this up in a cotton yarn to give a bit more stability. See below for the video tutorial.

Need to make a gift for a bookworm? This cute little Flower Bookmark is SO cute. They look great in all different colours and work up really quickly too. You can choose to make one or a meadow full, either way, your book-loving friend will love it!

Bobble stitch case

I’m not sure I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t love a good bobble stitch project! This bobble stitch case can be used for crochet hooks, pens or even glasses! The choice is yours. Here’s a video tutorial for the bobble stitch, simply make a rectangle piece, fold in half and sew up one small edge and the long edges…voila!

hair Scrunchy

What’s not to love about a crochet scrunchy? These lovely crochet scrunchies are made with velvet yarn which is just GORGEOUS! Experient with different yarn weights, fibres and stitch counts to create these fun and easy gifts.

Crochet Bottle Wrap

This is a new pattern to the blog by guest designer Lucy from @craftingbylucy and it’s been a HUGE hit! I mean, it’s easy to see why, these sparkly bottle wraps will take your bubbly gifts to the next level. You can also extend the handle and use this beautiful pattern for your water bottle which makes a lovely alternative gift idea.
