Getting a gift card to their favorite local yarn shop or craft store is a great way to let your crocheter choose what supplies they would like, especially when you don’t know what to get them.

They know the time and energy it took to make something special and they will appreciate it. Crochet gifts are some of the best gift ideas and an easy way to show your favorite crocheter how much you care.
I have a quilt that was gifted to me by my grandmother. It was made by my great grandmother and called a “postage stamp quilt”, consisting of 2,200 postage stamp sized pieces. She started it in 1934 and finished it in 1936…it took a long time! I cherish that quilt and can appreciate the amount of time that went into it.
