If you’ll be celebrating Hannukah soon, then we’ve put together the perfect list of gift ideas for any crafter on your list. While you could choose any of the fun & functional items on our list, it would definitely be fun to put together a progressive gift and give a new crafting item each night. For our full list of Hannukah gift ideas, keep reading, and Happy Hannukah to all those who celebrate!
Our Hannukah Gift List
1. Size 11 Knitting Needles, or a K Crochet Hook
We’ve started our list with the essential tools for any knitter or crocheter for whom you may be shopping. There are options for Size 11 Knitting Needles: Scarf Knitting Needles (10 Inch) or Lion Brand Knitting Needles. We also have options for Size K Crochet Hooks, so whether you know your recipient’s favorite brand or not, you can definitely pick something nice: ChiaoGoo Premium Bamboo Crochet Hook, or the HiyaHiya Aluminum Crochet Hook. If you’ll be shopping in our Manhattan Studio, you can always ask us for recommendations about sizes, brands, and materials.
2. How to Knit Booklet / Crochet Essentials Booklet
For the more beginner-level crafter, either of these books would be a perfect introduction. The How to Knit Book retails for $6.50, which is a steal of a price for this informative guide. It will also make a great reference for years to come, and would be the perfect start to any crafting library! Crochet Essentials retails for $10.95, and in addition to all the basics you’ll need to start crocheting, it includes 19 beginner designs.
3. 2 Balls of Color Made Easy
Next on our progressive gift list is the yarn! This gift will build the suspense, since we haven’t spilled yet what the final project will be. For this gift, we’re recommending one of our very fun new yarns, Color Made Easy. This CYC 5 Weight Bulky yarn comes in some seriously fabulous colors, so you’ll have a lot of fun options to choose from. These skeins are double the standard size, so this present will have a big impact! It’s an easy-to-care-for acrylic, too, which is a big plus.
4. Necessary Notions
It’s no fun to get into the middle of a project and realize you’re missing a crucial little tool! That’s why we’ve included notions on our list. Tapestry needles, stitch markers, all the necessary details to keep your giftee crafting smoothly. You could also opt for an all-inclusive set, like the Clover Knitting Accessory Set or the Crochet Kit. We have so many more options at our Manhattan Studio – stop by to pick one that’s got the right personality for whoever’s on your list!
5. Project Bag
A project bag is always a cute choice for a gift. You could gift it on its own, or combine your gift elements and use it as a very eco-friendly wrapping option. You could either opt for our classic New York project bag, or one of our latest items from Knit Baah Purl, which just arrived this week!
6. Simple Cowl Pattern
Finally, the project reveal! We’ve chosen two simple cowls, one knit and one crochet, because it’s the perfect beginner project. Or for more experienced crafters, it’s a fun & easy project that can practically be finished up in one sitting! The Level 1 Knit Cowl Pattern (Knit) is an accessible pattern which calls for Woolspun, but you could definitely substitute Color Made Easy! Now the Leonia Cowl (Crochet) is one of our newest patterns, and it’s a fun & chunky design that’s right on trend. This pattern uses Color Made Easy, but if you don’t love the hue, you could always go rogue.
7. The Answer Books
For the more curious crafter, either of these well-loved ‘answer’ books would make a great addition to their crafting library. The Knitting Answer Book and The Crochet Answer Book contain solutions to almost every question or problem you could run into while crafting. While there’s always YouTube, you can’t always find the information you need, so it’s wonderful to have a reference on hand.
8. A Fun Mug!
Last but not least, a fun mug will ensure that your crafting loved one will be able to set the relaxing, indulgent mood necessary to any good stitch session. We have some great mugs to choose from, including brand new mugs from Knit Baah Purl. We also have a bevvy of other fun options for whatever beverage your crafter likes to drink, so stop by to pick out the perfect one.
