I’ve seen quite few people asking on facebook groups for inspiration on what to make members of the family and friends for Christmas this year so I thought I’ll try to answer that question here.
You probably made everyone a scarf, a hat and maybe even a granny square blanket. You also probably made all the kids in your family a Crochet Mermaid Tail and Crochet Shark Tail blankets and now you are running out of ideas. Well see my propositions for CROCHET CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS your family will love. These are crochet items that I’ve found to be hot and trendy in 2017:

12. CROCHET POOP EMOJI PILLOW
Every boy (or girl) love emoji! If you haven’t heard of them, they are a small digital image or icon used to express an idea or emotion. Kids love using them while texting or messaging their friends on the Internet. Check out this Crochet Emoji Poop Pattern by Reapeat Crafter Me.
13. CROCHET BOOK/TABLET HOLDER
Have you seen a teenager without their tablet or a phone? Guessing probably not! Are they a little bookworm maybe? If you answered yes to either of the questions then they will love this I Love Music and I love Books Crochet Tablet/Book Holders. Those would also make a great gift for adults.
14. CROCHET POUF
These knitted and crochet poufs are so popular and are both nice looking and practical gift. I’ve seen loads of them in stylish home decor magazines. Here is a pouf crochet patter that includes 4 desings by isWoolish.
I’d suggest making those crochet poufs from a stronger type of fiber like rope, cotton cord or t-shirt yarn. You can make a fabric yarn yourself using for example old bed sheets. Here is a great tutorial about making fabric yarn by lookwhatImade.net.
Here is a nice cotton cord pouf pattern by knotsewcute:
If you are working on a budget check out this free crochet pouf pattern by Heather from Twin Dragonfly Designs.
15. CROCHET MERINO WOOL BLANKETS
You think there is not enough time to make anyone a blanket? Well that’s not true! Using this fabulous Merino wool you can hand crochet a gorgeous super fashionable blanket within 1-2 hours! The photos of gorgeous knitted merino wool blankets were travelling all over the internet for the past few months. I have to admit they look a bit better knitted then crocheted and I really couldn’t find that many done in crochet but here you are. Here is a youtube crochet merino wool blanket pattern video tutorial from BeCozi.net.
The only problem is, that wool is quite expensive. For Universal Size Blanket 40 x 60 inches (101 cm x 152 cm) you will need 2.3 kg (5.1 Ibs / 81.13 oz). 1 kg costs around £25- £40 so you look at around £50-£80 just for materials. The cheapest merino wool I’ve found on Etsy is actually from my home country – Poland for £22 per 1 kg (2.2 lb around 40m) plus cost of shipping.
If you don’t have access to Merino wool check out this super chunky hand crochet blanket pattern and video tutorial by Simply Maggie. The blanket is made using 3 strands of Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Serenity Active Yarn-Grey, Other, Multicoloured. 12 skeins of yarn is needed so at £7 (sale price) the costs comes at £84 so very similar to merino wool.
For those of you who work on a a small budget check on this video tutorial by Kristin at Home who showed an alternative yarn at a much lover price tag which is Loops & Threads® Indie™ Indie Pop Yarn. Kristin is actually showing how to knit the blanket so it’s great opportunity to learn or you can choose to crochet the blanket as shown in the patterns above.
16. CROCHET DREAM CATCHER:
Dream Catchers make a lovely decoration for any home. Here is a lovely Crochet Dream Catcher pattern by MidKnits.
17. CROCHET EYEGLASSES HOLDER:
You have a friend that loves to read, but you don’t want your Christmas gift to be a book again? Do you want something useful but different? In that case, those amigurumi eyeglasses stand are great for Christmas gift, not only for adults but for everyone that uses glasses.
You can make them by using the Crochet Eyeglasses Stand Pattern by hugles.
