10 best gifts for crocheters that are incredibly useful start crochet

Boye Crochet Swiss Army Knife

Now if this isn't the coolest thing I've seen in a long time, I don't know what is!! Check out the crochet Swiss Army Knife.

One bonus is that you can save your works in progress. If you can't finish a project till later, no worries! Just close the hook while in the stitch and save it for later! The stitches won't unravel and you won't loose your hook in the yarn.

2. Lamp With Magnifying Glass

I never really thought I'd need one of these because so far, thank goodness, my eye-sight is still alright. I found one of these LED Lamps with Magnifying glass on sale one day and thought it might be useful for my crocheting, and boy was it the best thing I've ever bought!

I went back and bought 3 more, one for my kids (who are completely fascinated with looking at their toys through the magnifying glass), one for my mom, and one for my neighbour (both of whom suffer from Macular Degeneration- bad eye-sight) and they can't stop thanking me for this awesome gift I got them! They simply can't live without it anymore!!

And here's a portable version that is so small, you could pack it in your handbag for your on-the-go crochet projects.

3. Crochet Hook with Light

I sometimes like to crochet in bed in the evening, but the strong light from my side-table lamp bothers my husband while sleeping! Not anymore, though!

Since I've discovered this Crochet Hook with Light, I've been able to crochet happily into the night without disturbing anyone!!  

4. Glasses With LED Light

This is another magical solution to crocheting in spaces that don't have sufficient lighting. These are safety glasses with strong LED lights that you can shine directly onto your crochet work and see those stitches super clear! 

These particular style doesn't come with magnification, but if you do need a little magnification, you can check out other brands on Amazon. Here is another example:

5. Digital Stitch Counter

Now here's a gift that's super cheap, but very useful for crocheters! You wear these digital stitch counters on your finger to keep count of your crochet stitches. You can use them for many other things too, just about anything you want to keep count of, so it's really multipurpose! That's why it's a good thing they come in a pack of four 🙂

I always thought yarn bowls are overrated. One could just DIY one, but trust me on this one. Only crocheters would understand what it's like to have your yarn ball keep rolling off your lap, get hair tangled into yarn, or chase those darn things all over the place! And don't even get me started of what an issue this can be if you have cats or young kids!! It can get real messy!!

So the yarn bowl is truly a problem-solver when it comes to crocheting. If you gift it to someone who's never used one, you'll be doing them a great favour and they'll be very pleased with the functionality of this bowl.

7. Yarn Cutter Pendant

Do you have any idea how many times a crocheter looks for that pair of scissors when it's time to cut off yarn? Let me tell you from personal experience, those scissors just tend to have a life of their own! They're just never there when you need them!! So here's a super nifty little gadget that'll solve that issue for any crocheter!

This pendant is clever and decorative, with a sharp blade inside that makes cutting yarn quick and easy.  You could either use it as a pendant on a necklace or hang it on your crochet project bag. Either way, it'll be easily accessible and you won't have to rummage through all your - whatever's around you- to find those darn scissors every time!

Once you've tried this, you'll never be able to live without it!

8. White Laptop Support

Why use a laptop support while crocheting, you ask? Well, if you're working with black yarn, or any dark yarn for that matter, having a white background like this will help you so much! It'll make it a lot easier to see those stitches 🙂 And, of course, it'll double up as a laptop support too!

This odd-looking gadget is super useful when you've got a  hank or skein and you want to transform it into a compact center-pull ball. You could, of course, do this manually, but oh boy, it is just so much easier and faster with this awesome yarn ball winder!

11. Gift Card

And if you're really stuck and just have no idea what to get her, gift cards are always my go-to option!
