Here, we have complied a list of the BEST DIY Christmas gifts for this year! (Because we know that the holiday is soon approaching, we've chosen brief and relatively easy projects for this list, too. You're welcome.)

Without further adieu, here are our picks! 

1. 30 Minute Arm Knit Scarf

3. Sari Not Sorry Crochet Clutch

Which of the women on your Christmas list would not want to receive a new purse for Christmas? For a habitual crocheter, this small clutch purse will take very little time. It makes the perfect stocking stuffer and, both, a fashionable and practical gift.

4. Recycled Baby Hippo

If you've got kids on your list of people to give to (or friends who love animals), check out this adorable crochet baby hippo! This cute and cuddly hippopotamus is a gift that can be kept and remembered for years to come! 

We recommend sing our Super Bulky Recycled Silk Yarn for this project. 

5. Bow Ear Warmer 

This gift is cute, practical, and easy! Who couldn't use an ear warmer headband to wear throughout the cold winter months? This bow ear warmer makes an excellent present for all women! For men, try using the same pattern without the bow detail! 

We recommend our Speckled Tweed Recycled Silk Yarn for this project. 

6. Rainy Day Infinity Scarf

This basic and easy crochet infinity scarf is perfect for that person on your list who wears their scarves almost all year round! Make this scarf using out Banana Fiber Yarn for a 100% recycled, eco-friendly project!

7. Celebration Scarf and Canine Scarf

Do you have that friend or family member who absolutely loves their dog? We're talking about that person who has created a separate and individual Instagram for their four legged fur baby. Wouldn't it be great if you could get them and their dog matching scarves? Well, thankfully, you can! This Celebration Scarf and matching canine scarf can be knitted in time for Christmas so that you can make your favorite dog lover's holiday extra special! 

For this project, we recommend using our Recycled Silk Hand-Spun Punky Chunky Yarn.


If your calendar is full of Christmas parties and you really, truly feel that you won't have the time to sit down and create a gift yourself, or if you want to add something extra to a gift, remember to check out our fleece lined wool socks! Perfect for anyone on your list, these socks are just the thing for sitting in front of the fire or by the tree on a winter day!
