The Best Knitted Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas knitted gifts

Christmas is the time of the year that we all gather together with our loved ones and friends to celebrate the kindness, joy and peace. Also, this is the time when we exchange gifts to value each other’s presence in our lives. This is the time of the year that we — the knitters — surprise our loved ones and friends with our completed masterpieces that are hand knitted with lots of love.

Hand knitted goodies are the best gifts that they can receive from us. These Christmas themed knitted goodies don’t really have to be ultra fancy or expensive! In fact, most of them won’t even cost more than a few pounds to knit. However, the value these gifts provide to your loved ones is priceless!

Here are some Christmas gift ideas that will get your needles clicking for the festive season.

Knitted Stockings

The hand knitted stockings make lovely Christmas gifts. All you have to do is select some yarn that you like, pick vibrant colours as a traditional theme or go with greys and browns for a more contemporary look. Santa red and while are always cheerful colours for children of all ages.

Hand knitted stockings are in demand during the cold winter evenings, they make great ornaments on a mantlepiece. So knit some for your loved ones. Create a stocking and fill it with goodies for the kids in your family. They will adore them.

Hand Made Gift Bags

Hand knitted gift bags make trendy and usable presents. The best thing about knitting these little bags is that you can create them with all the leftover yarn from your main projects.  They will make great accompaniments if you have made a main gift and have some leftovers.

This is a one size that fits them all!   Pop little gifts into the bags and make a double gift. You can improvise with your creativity further and switch them up into other items such as eyewear pouches, TV remote keepers, cosmetic bags, mobile phone covers.
