Twinkling lights, chocolate treats, and glitter everywhere – all clear signs Christmas is near. As my son says, the most magical time of the year is here!
You may be like my mother-in-law, and have your presents bought and wrapped since September. But if you are more like me, a last-minute gift maker, you might appreciate a little inspiration. To help you out, I lined up some of my most favorite crochet projects into a versatile crochet gift guide. They represent a mix of my original designs, both free and paid. Read on for links and an exclusive 50% coupon code for everything in my pattern shop.
One of my favorite handmade holiday gifts is a crocheted snowflake. Snowflakes are such a universal symbol of winter. You can’t go wrong with a handmade crochet snowflake, not matter how the recipient celebrates winter holidays. They can be used as ornaments, gift tags, or as parts of holiday cards, table settings, or home decor. Just like people, no two snowflakes are alike; and it’s quite alright if they aren’t perfect. Sounds like an ideal beginner crochet project? That’s because it is. Especially this one-round crochet snowflake trio from a few years ago. I have a soft spot in my heart for this, 2018 crochet snowflake, though.
How about gifting something relatively ordinary, like a bottle of wine, in a crochet gift bag that is anything but ordinary! While I am working on several more, right now I have two designs to choose from. If you like neutral colors and natural materials, you’ll love the jute and cotton wine bag. If, on the other hand, you are looking for something more colorful, check out the gift bag with ombre effect. Get either – or both – at a 50% discount. Simply use coupon code GIFT2018 at checkout.
If you are looking for a quick and easy crochet gift idea that’s far from ordinary, check out my free karma necklace pattern. It is a perfectly customizeable crochet project. Adjust thread and bead color, and the size, to yours – and the recipient’s – liking.
And if your idea of a perfect crochet gift is a little more practical, I’m sure you will love the idea of gifting a crochet basket. I have several in my pattern shop, but this set of three sturdy baskets with handles is by far my favorite. Can you imagine all the wonderful ways to use these handy baskets? Grab the pattern with the code GIFT2018 for a 50% discount.
And you know what? If after you browse my pattern shop something else catches your eye, go ahead and use the same coupon code with any pattern you choose. Psst: If you are a regular jakigu.com blog reader and have another coupon code stashed away, go ahead and combine them!
