Need some ideas for last minute Christmas crochet gifts that people will actually want? I’ve got you covered. 

I have curated a list of only the cutest and quickest Christmas crochet projects that you can whip up faster than a reindeer eats carrots. And what’s even better is that they are all FREEEEEEEE! 

While I was looking for patterns I had three main criteria. They had to be:




As it’s already November, there is no way I can waste time on projects that are going to take weeks to complete. I need adorable projects that I can get done in record time.

Cute Crochet Glass Jar Cover

Last minute crochet Christmas gifts - glass jar covers.

I am a sucker for pretty glass jar.

When I started buying the most delicious yogurt (Oui Yogurt Brand) I fell in love with the little glass jar. It wasn’t long before I knew they needed a cute little crochet jar cover.

What’s wonderful about this project is that you can make it bigger or smaller depending on the jar you want to cover.

You’ll find the FREE pattern and a video tutorial in the link below!

Crochet Gift Card Holder

As our family has gotten bigger and older I do a lot of gift cards. Most of my extended family members don’t actually need anything. I would rather give them a gift card that they can actually use.

But I always like to include a little something handmade. 

These gift card holders make an impersonal gift card feel special with that handmade touch.

Crochet Mini Stockings

Nothing is more Christmasy than little red and white stockings. These are absolutely adorable and would work up quick, quick, quick. 

The Crochet Mini Stockings by Sewrella are sweet and would make a sweet little ornament or even a little decorative tag for a gift. 

You could even hide a little candy inside! Yum!

Quick Rustic Ornament

You want quick? I’ll give you quick. 

This may be one of the quickest crochet Christmas gifts I have ever seen. 

And while they may take little time to actually make, they are beautiful in their simplicity. 

If you love the rustic, farmhouse look or have a friend or family member that does, these would be perfect. 

These little ornaments are little baubles on twine. They would be beautiful as a whole set of Christmas ornaments and would take very little time to complete.

One Hour Chunky Crochet Beanie

What’s so great about this One Hour Chunky Crochet Beanie is that it doesn’t look like it’s a quick project. 

The person who receives your gift won’t realize it only took you an hour to make it and you can either:

•Fess up and admit that it only took you an hour to make

•Or you can let them fawn over you and say all kinds of nice things about your creative skills.  (That’s what I would do, lol)

You can even make the pom pom yourself with a pom pom maker (here’s my favorite brand):

Or you can use a faux fur pom poms like these:

30 Minute Crochet Cowl

Now this is what I call quick! 30 minutes and one skein of yarn! 

What’s even better is that the Arctic Snood looks amazing! And it comes with a video tutorial as well!

This would go perfect with the One Hour Chunky Crochet Beanie! What a wonderful gift set that would be!

I am a sucker for anything cute and practical. Who says a little soap cozy has to be boring and serious. 

This would make a fantastic gift for any child or adults how are children at heart. I would be over the moon for this sort of gift. 

What’s great is that it works up quickly and will be sure to make the gift recipient smile!

Hyperbolic Velvet Crochet Scrunchies

I remember wearing scrunchies when they weren’t retro! And I love that they’ve come back in such a fun way!

There are a lot of different scrunchie patterns out there, but I like this one for this reason:

“NOTE: This is more of a recipe than an exact pattern – feel free to play with it and create something unique!” Moogly.

I love that you can make them your own! 

I think there are a lot of people who would love a collection of handmade scrunchies for Christmas!

This is such a simple but beautiful headband that would look so pretty in lots of different colors. The rich golden color is absolutely spectacular!
