Ladies Gift Ideas for the Christmas Season

Where has the year gone? November in on the downhill stretch towards Thanksgiving and you know what that means: Christmas is just around the corner! The dent on our bank accounts seems an inevitable casualty of our holiday festivities. However, it doesn’t have to be. Allow me to point your crochet hooks towards another way to give wonderful gifts this holiday season without going broke in the process. Handmade Christmas gifts are fondly remembered and may become family heirlooms. They are also a special way to let others know you are thinking of them. Here are a few awesome ideas from one scheming hook.

Ladies

Texting mitts are perfect for teens or your favorite phone junkie. I will stitch up something to keep them warm while they communicate with friends, family, or that extra special someone. “Texting Mitts” by Leisure Arts is full of fun and easy patterns that your smartphone enthusiast is sure to love. The only problem is which pattern to start first!

Oh and if diamonds are a girl’s best friend, I think I found you a new best friend! This City Life ladder yarn is heavenly. I just love how it moves across my hook and all of the colors it comes in. I am going to use it for some of the jewelry pieces I’ve been planning, but I’m certainly going to make the free shawl pattern that came with my order. Maybe that will be a holiday gift for myself!

Baby
Last week I finished the Sailor Layette afghan for an expecting Mom. I haven’t heard if it is a boy or girl yet, but I choose yellows and oranges for this new bundle of sunshine.

I still have some yellow left over and will make a Sailor Duck Toy for the soon-t0-be 3 year old brother.

Children

 

I find these to be quick and easy little projects to whip up. Every child knows the story of the Wizard of Oz, and with these cute little puppets they can recreate the childhood classic over and over again.
I love the possibilities this gift can create!

Wizard of Oz sets can be found here (PA863) and here (PA864)

Whatever you decide to do this holiday season, whether purchase from the store or made by your own two hands, always remember to give from the heart.

As always, thank you for reading. Happy Crocheting!

Sincerely,

Maggie
