Gifts For Knitters
Knitters are known to be passionate about their hobby and craft, so whether it’s for a birthday, Christmas, or any other special occasion, a knitting gift is sure to be a hit.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the best gifts for knitters, as well as some ideas for knitting gifts that can be made at home. From presents made from wool to practical equipment that’ll make a great addition to their knitting kit, there’s something for every knitter here, whether they’re a beginner or an expert.
K is for Knitting notebook
Every knitter needs a project notebook to document ideas, sketches, and keep track of their progress as they knit their way through a pattern. This personalised notebook can be customised with a ‘K is for Knitting’ message on the front page, making it the perfect choice for a notebook for knitters. You can even choose between plain or lined paper to suit their style.
Personalised knitting supply box
While it might not have been designed with knitters in mind, this large vintage-style wooden keepsake box that can be personalised with three lines of text is perfect for knitters with an organisational streak.
Plenty of space on the inside means that it can be used to store wool, needles, or patterns with style. The personalised message of up to 72 characters is hand stamped on a metal plaque on top of the box.
Personalised picnic rug
This beautiful picnic rug is made from 100% recycled wool, so is a perfect gift for a knitter who’s passionate about the form. Available in a range of colourways, there’s blue check, navy check, red check, and blue crosshatch to choose from. To personalise it further, add a special message to the heritage leather tag on the rug so that your recipient will think of you every time they go for a picnic.
These personalised slipper socks are perfect for knitters who understand the need to get cosy on the sofa before they pick up their knitting needles. If they’re too wrapped up in other patterns to make their own socks right now, these high-quality slipper socks are a great choice of present. Made in Derbyshire, they’re soft to the touch and completed with anti-slip dots on the base of the foot.
Personalised tote bag
This personalised tote bag is perfect for knitters to store their supplies, with plenty of room for balls of wool, needles, patterns, ongoing projects, and more. For a beginner knitter, a tote bag will help them manage their growing supply of knitting materials and equipment. For a more advanced knitter, it might come in most useful as a travel bag to make it easier to transport materials on the go.
It can be printed with a name up to 12 characters long, and you can preview the personalisation to make sure it looks the part before buying.
Checked sofa blanket
Perfect for evening snuggles or even to use as a throw to decorate the bed, this sofa blanket is ideal for cosying up and settling down for a night of knitting. Made from super-soft wool that’s sure to appeal to knitters of any calibre, it’s available in three colours.
You can even personalise the leather name tag to make it extra-special – it’ll be their favourite knitting accessory in no time at all and it might even inspire them to make more throws of their own.
It seems like most knitters are also tea or coffee enthusiasts, and you’ll often find them settled down with a ball of wool in one hand and a steaming mug in the other. To give them a gift of a unique personalised mug, choose from existing designs or create a new one by uploading a photo! This present is sure to make their knitting nights a little cosier and a little more personal.
Homemade gifts for knitters
If none of these gift ideas for knitters strikes you as brilliant, homemade gifts are always well received. As creative people, knitters are sure to appreciate the effort that goes into a homemade gift, so why not make something truly from the heart? Something like a homemade pin cushion, a handstitched case for their needles, or even a simple homemade card will go a long way.
