Gifts you can start knitting now for Christmas

Hello loves

Hope you’re all having a wonderful week? We’re tentatively mentioning the C word this week 🙊 We probably wouldn’t normally until the end of the month but we’ve had so many of you getting organised with ordering decorations that we thought we’d jump right in! It is getting nearer and nearer by the day, so it’s never too early to start making!

If you were thinking of gifting handmade presents this year (and we ALWAYS say they are the best kind of gifts to give) then these are some of our suggestions for your lovely friends and family.

The beauty of making your own is that they can be made especially to suit the recipient – whether it’s their favourite colour or actually personalising with their initial – and you’ll get that fuzzy feeling inside knowing that they really are given with love 😍

For her

Whether it’s your Mum, Nan, sister or friend – most of our kits will make the perfect gift. These three are quick to make and suitable for brand new beginners or those with a little bit of knitting experience. 

For him

The men in your life may seem harder to knit for, but we reckon there’s always going to be love for a personalised jumper this Christmas from him! Socks and tea towels will also be a winner 😍

For teens

For the tricky to buy for teens! Knitting really can be quite cool (but they may need a little bit of convincing so hopefully these will do the trick… 😉)

For babies

For the little ones in your life – our merino wool is the softest yarn so a blanket is the perfect gift to snuggle up with, our rompers can be made for babies up to 12 months, and our alphabet banner is perfect for a nursery wall 🌈

Stocking Fillers

Wanting a few quick knits to pop into their stocking? These kits tick those boxes and are so much more sustainable than some plastic toys that they’ll be bored of by Boxing Day!

Of course, we think all our our kits can create beautiful, thoughtful gifts for your loved ones this year – but if you want to get them all made, it might be an idea to start pretty soon…!! Without wanting to freak anyone out – there are currently just over 8 weeks to get knitting!! 😵😵

Eeeek! Happy Knitting LAD’s!
