25 Crochet Teacher Gift Ideas
It’s October and time to get serious about planning our crochet projects for the upcoming holidays. One of the questions that I am seeing a lot of lately is people needing ideas for quick crochet teacher gift ideas.
I was chatting with a teacher that I’m close to and asked what kinds of gifts were memorable to her. I want to share what she said.
“I didn’t ever expect anything, and was grateful for anything a child would give me. Their handmade cards, dollar store gifts, homemade cookies and candy, mean as much as a gift card or expensive gift.”
So present your handmade crochet gifts proudly.
Let’s get those hooks hooking some great gifts this year.
- Snowman Sack – perfect for stuffing with goodies.
- Apple Paperclips – so cute and you can make dozens of these in time for the holidays.
- Bath Mitt & Scrubby – add some nice lotions or soaps for a spa basket.
