Gifts for Crocheters £10 and less

Looking for a gift to say thank you, a stocking filler or Secret Santa gift?  I’ve got some great recommendations for gifts that crocheters will love.

1. Scissors

scissors used for crochet, knitting, sewing, embroidery

Scissors are one of our must haves. We use them to snip the yarn when we change colour, finish crocheting and for snipping ends after weaving them.

These scissors are hardwearing and highly rated.

I have these and have used them for over 5 years so great value for money!

Small and lightweight, they can be popped in craft bags and used while on the move.

2. Tapestry Needles

15 tapestry needles of different sizes

Tapestry needles are another must. Mostly used for sewing in ends, we also use them if we need to embroider on a crochet project.

These 15 needles come with a nifty clear bottle for storage.

3. Retractable Tape Measure

Retractable tape measure with a pink and white hard cover

I’ve used my Prym tape measure in the image above for a long time. There is very little wear and tear (and I use it a lot).

Soft and clear with easy-to-read markings, this covered retractable tape measure will be a great addition to any crocheters kit.

4. Row Counter

Digital row stitch counter in turquoise

It’s easy to get distracted and forget which row of the pattern you’re on. Unless you have a row counter 🙂

Just push a button every time a row is completed to keep count –  infinitely better than a tally with pen and paper. 

This row counter is available in 9 different colours so there’s likely to be a colour match for you.

Another low cost addition to a crocheters kit.

5. Stitch Markers/Progress Keepers

Stitch markers handmade from Polymer Clay in Rainbow Cake Slices
Cupcake Crochet Crafts

Crocheters love to use different stitch markers (aka progress keepers) in our work to mark decreases and pattern changes.  

Whenever I put a project down, I always remove my hook and use a stitch marker in the last stitch worked. I don’t have problems with my work unravelling! And my project is all set for me to just pick up and start again.

I’m always on the look out for stitch markers that are different, just like these handmade rainbow cake slice stitch markers. This independent seller has included an option for different fixings, my favourite is the lobster clasp.

A uniqe, low cost accessory that your crocheter will love.

6. Crochet Enamel Pin

Hartiful

I’ll let you into a secret, crocheters love anything to do with crochet … and these cute yarn and crochet hook enamel pins would make a fabulous gift.

Three different colour variations to choose from (and a discount for buying all 3).

7. Wooden Pom Pom Maker

Sew Pro Crafts

This is a brilliant tool for making pom poms for hats, scarves, gloves and more!

This wooden fork pom pom maker makes 2 sizes of Pom Poms in one:

  • 30mm
  • 50mm

It’s very easy to use.

8. Tension Gauge Tool / Swatch Gauge

Laser by J

A tension square or a swatch gauge is essential in helping to make a good-fitting garment or for any project where tension needs to be accurate.

This nifty little tool helps to easily measure tension by placing it on the piece of crocheted fabric and counting the number of stitches across the window. Easy!

9. Crochet Hook Gauge

Laser by J

When favourite crochet hooks are used a lot, they lose the mark that tells us the size of the hook. It gets rubbed off over time. 

A crochet hook gauge is perfect for easily identifying the size of crochet hooks. No more using the wrong hook!

10. Wraps Per Inch Tool

wooden wraps per inch tool used to measure the weight of yarn
Laurette Crafts UK

Yarn can lose their ball bands which makes it difficult to remember the weight of yarn.

Wraps per inch (WPI) is a useful tool for crocheters to help them find out the thickness of yarn.

This simple tool works by wrapping yarn around the 1″ section. The count of the total number of strands works out the thickness/weight of the yarn.

No more trying to guess!

11. Tassel Maker

turqouise tassel maker in its packaging

Tassels give a fabulous finish to lots of different crochet projects and it’s often the last piece of kit that a crocheter will think of buying for themselves.

This tassel maker makes 5 different size tassels:  6cm,7cm,8cm,9cm and 10cm.

12. Yarn Cutter Pendant

Clover Yarn Cutter Pendant in its packaging

If there are younger children at home then a yarn cutter pendant could be your best buy.

The rotary cutting blade is integrated within the pendant making it safe.

Most crocheters love to take a project to work on when they go on holiday. This yarn cutter can be used on planes making it perfect for the traveller.

Clover is a well-respected brand so you know you’re getting the best quality.

13. Engraved Crochet Hook

Bamboo crochet hook personalised
Wood Paper Scissors UK

This engraved bamboo hook is the perfect personalised gift for any fan of crochet.

These 5mm bamboo hooks have just the right amount of grip to keep slippery yarns steady. Excellent for the hands too, as the bamboo can warm and shape to fit the hands, over time.

Each 5mm hook is engraved with the name of your choice and HAPPY PLACE.

Each hook is engraved by Wood Paper Scissors in their Cornwall workshops making it unique.

14. Hydrate Scent Refresh Hand Spray

Cath Kidston's Hydrate Refresh Hand Spray

I received this as a gift from a friend and now use it every day.

Our skin holds on to certain smells, not so good if you’re a crocheter! My hands used to dry out, especially between fingers, but they don’t now. They feel fresh and hydrated and smell great!

  • Rinse-free hydrating 15ml hand cleansing spray with glycerin to leave hands feeling fresh and clean
  • Cruelty free and vegan friendly
  • Citrus & Sandalwood fragrance with notes of green limes, pineapple, mandarin and sandalwood leaves hands delicately scented

15. Sock Bag/Project Bag

Crochet or knitting project bag made from fabric with swallows

This small zip top bag is perfect for small knitting or crochet projects.

Ideal for popping into a rucksack for on the go crocheting while commuting.

These bags are also great for holding scissors, pompom makers and whatever else us crafty folk like to carry round and have handy!

Bags measure 8 x 7in (22 x 18cm) and have a 3in (8cm) flat bottom.

16. Personalised Crochet Mug

Yarn quote on a white mug

When we’re crocheting we often have a beverage on the go (although if a hot drink, it gets cold because we lose ourselves in the flow of the stitches 🙂 ). 

I love this quote because it is so true! 

 You’ll find all sorts of mugs from Etsy sellers – from the pretty to tongue-in-cheek crochet quotes.

A fabulous gift for crocheters.

Goes perfectly with a treat of a luxury tea gift or speciality coffee box.

17. Crochet Journal

Pages in a printable crochet journal

The pages in this printable crochet journal include:

  • HOOK INVENTORY/CONVERSION CHART – if you’re using a US pattern, knowing the UK equivalent size hook is very useful (and vice versa)
  • PLANNED PROJECTS – keep on top of the crochet projects you have planned
  • CROCHET JOURNAL – record what your project is, your pattern source, yarn, yardage, where you bought from, guage, hook, when you started the crochet project and when you finished, finished dimensions, care instructions, changes you made to the pattern and what you learned from the crochet project
  • YARN STASH INVENTORY – keep a list of the brand, dye lot, weight of yarn, how many skeins/balls and hook size
  • PLAN INDIVIDUAL CROCHET PROJECTS – project, notes, yarn, hook size, guage and graph paper
  • NOTES

Print out these 7 journal pages, add them to a pretty folder and gift to your crochet lover to help them organise their projects.

18. Personalised Tags

Pray for Rainbow

Help your crocheter make their mark by using personalised tags on their work.

Crafted from high-quality faux leather material, these tags are durable and long-lasting. They are also designed to be sewn onto items, ensuring they stay in place and won’t easily fall off.

These personalised tags have 18 colours to choose from.  Something to suit everyone.

19. Yarn Tension Ring

First Steps UK

No matter your experience with crocheting, there are times when your tension might not be the same. This could be if you’ve been crocheting sat on the sofa watching the TV but the next time you pick up your project to work on you’re sat in your car waiting for your kids activity to finish/school to end. Or you haven’t worked on the project for a while and the yarn you’ve worked has stretched. Enter a yarn tension ring!

This independent seller has a range of different yarn tension rings and the size can easily be adjusted to suit your finger size by pulling apart or squeezing together.

A tension ring isn’t as hard to wear and use as you might be thinking. And at this low price point, well worth trying out.

Highly recommended.

23. Modern Granny Square Crochet

Granny squares are the building blocks for lots of projects and there’s plenty of inspiration in the Modern Granny Square Crochet and More by Laura Strutt. It’s one I have on my bookshelf and have dipped into for the past couple years.

24. Mosaic Crochet Workshop

Book cover for Mosaic Crochet Workshop by Esme Crick.  Blue wall, grey floor with a wooden chair draped with a blanket made from mosaic crochet in brown and cream

The Mosaic Crochet Workshop by Esme Crick shows how to make 12 bold, statement throws and then how to use the same pattern to create a further 12 spin-off designs for smaller projects, showing how using different yarn colours with the same pattern can create completely different results.

I was gifted this for my birthday. Instructions are so easy to follow and the patterns are stunning.

Mosaic crochet has become increasingly popular with crocheters. Give the gift of learning something new!

29. Ergonomic Crochet Hook Set

These gorgeous handmade ergonomic crochet hooks are made from polymer clay and sanded down through 6 different sand grits papers for an amazing smooth finish.

Nico, the crafter of the hooks, is a crocheter so knows how important it is to find the right hook for pain free hands.

These truly are a unique gift for crocheters.

33. Rechargeable Neck Light

lit crochet neck light also showing the three different light settings

There are times when we need a little more light when we’re crocheting:

  • when working with a darker yarn and need to see more definition
  • when crocheting in bed when you can’t sleep (yes, it really is therapeutic, if you’re not a crocheter yourself, give it a go – it’s easy to learn to crochet)
  • when the lights are dimmed when the family is watching a movie

I have this neck light. It isn’t heavy or uncomfortable to wear. The blue light filter is easy on the eye and with 3 light settings, options to choose from.  And it’s rechargeable.  Perfect.

Yarns

Yarns are one of the best gifts for the crocheter you can buy.

Choose a colour pack, splash out on luxurious hand-dyed yarn, gift a subscription or a crochet kit. Whatever your budget, my favourite yarns have you covered.

34. Paintbox Yarn Colour Packs

Paintbox Yarns in brown, cream, red, sage and blue

The colour packs available in Paintbox Yarns are simply stunning.  They compliment each other beautifully! And are lovely to work with, crocheting up beautifully.

35. Hand-Dyed Yarn

hand dyed yarn in vibrant colours

Working with new fibres really is a treat!  And these hand-dyed yarns from small business owners are unique.

Gift your crochet lover luxury with hand dyed yarn and they’ll love you forever 🙂

36. Colour Yarn Packs

Emu yarn is one of my favourite yarns to work with and at such a reasonable price, you won’t go wrong in choosing a colour pack to gift.

37. Crochet Blanket Kits

Gift a blanket crochet kit and you’re giving a complete project to your crocheter.

I crocheted the blanket in the photo above (from The Knitting Network’s Late Summer Sunsets kit).

It was so convenient to have the yarn and pattern together. 

Recommended!

Prices range from less than £20.

38. Yarn Winder

KnitPro yarn winder

A yarn winder is so much better than using the back of a chair or your neck to wind balls of yarn!

This KnitPro version winds ball weights of 100g and less.

Useful for hanks of handspun yarn and winding your yarn leftovers – some people prefer to work from wound balls, finding it keeps tension even. And the cakes of yarn are easier to store.

Awesome gift for any level crocheter.

Gifts for Crocheters over £30

These extra special gifts for crocheters will make you the shining star.

39. Clover Amour Crochet Hook Set

9 Clover Amour Crochet Hooks ranging in size from 2mm to 6mm

I’ve been using Clover crochet hooks for the past 5+ years. I haven’t needed to replace any of them.

These are the best crochet hooks I’ve ever used.

40. Tunisian Crochet Hook Set

Just take a moment to appreciate how stunning these KnitPro Tunisian crochet hooks are!

Handcrafted by skilled artisans, warm to the touch and gentle in the hand, these are treasured gifts for crocheters.

I was lucky enough to be gifted this set for Christmas (see photo above – this is my set). I’ve been using them on a few projects and wow, such great quality.

The yarn glides so smoothly on the hook! It’s easy to tighten the cable and stopper and just as easy to undo. This is a gift for crocheters I can recommend.

Perfect for Tunisian Crochet blankets and other Tunisian Crochet projects.

41. Personalised Ceramic Yarn Bowl

white personalised ceramic yarn bowl with red flower design

Hand painted with a whimsical design of either hearts, stars, flowers or spots, this gift is sure to win the heart of your crocheter.

Jo paints to order, then hand glazes and the yarn bowl is professionally fired. 

Truly a unique gift!

42. Blocking Mat

blocking mat for blocking crochet and knitting pieces

Blocking a finished crochet project can be difficult if you don’t have the equipment or don’t have the space.

Wooden blocks are ok but don’t last long. They have a tendency to crack and swell from the water or steam.

These interlocking blocking mats are made from extra strong and sturdy foam. They stay put together when placed upright against a wall while your project is drying.  Brilliant!

The grid lines make it easy to precisely block your project and measure tension swatch to precision so that you always end up with an expert finish.

A practical but very useful gift for your crocheter.

43. Modular Storage Cubes

modular storage cubes with a frosted door

Ask any crocheter about their yarn stash and most will tell you it’s stored in corners, in plastic tubs, hidden behind the sofa, under the bed …

These 15 modular storage cubes are perfect for keeping yarn together in one place.  And as a bonus, each cube comes with a frosted door keeping your yarn dust free!

It’s easy to assemble following the instructions and takes approximately 30 minutes to build.

With such a simple design, this storage system will suit all home-décor styles.
