Some people just love to knit. They may knit to pass the time or to make gifts for others (which we love, am I right?). Why not fuel their favorite pastime by giving them knitting gifts that they will actually love? We’ve found the best gifts for knitters – some that are useful and some that are just pretty awesome – and we guarantee they will drop their yarn when they see these awesome ideas.
Best Gifts for Knitters They’ll Actually Love
First off, while it may not feel exciting to give a gift card, funding their next knitting project is actually a great gift idea. Especially if they are an advanced knitter, you may not know exactly what materials they may want or need for a specific project.
For a beginner knitter, an assortment of knitting needles, balls of yarn, new patterns, and knitting books make useful gift options. If all else fails, here are some good gifts that your knitting friend will most likely enjoy receiving. We think they are cool anyway.
