Top 30 Gifts for the Knitter in your life – Great Knitting Gift List

It can be so difficult to buy the perfect gift for your loved ones, especially when you perhaps don’t know a great deal about their hobby.

I have put together a selection of gifts for newbie knitters and knitaholics alike! These gift ideas range from stocking fillers to gifts that with total WOW factor.  Click on the image and it will whisk you off where you can purchase the perfect present.

Lets start with needles, this can be daunting for the non-knitter.  Have a peep inside the knitting bag, are the needles wooden or metal? There will be a lot of needles which is more common?

Does your knitter, knit socks and gloves?  Then perhaps consider the sock knitting or DPN sets. (By the way, us knitters can NEVER have too many needles).

Addendum – Saltire Says…

Subtle Jane, real subtle!

Seriously though, when buying for someone whom it may already seem like they own everything there is to own, the ideas above are great.

Pro-tip – take a photo of your knitters bookshelves with your phone. That way you’ll always be able to have at least some idea which books they already own when you spot that bargain in the shops. And it’s usually the case that any book not already on the shelf will usually provide at least some helpful tips or ideas, so don’t shun a bargain just because you don’t think they’ll like it.

And if you see them ‘coo’ over something, make a note on your phone for next time!
