10 Thrifty Christmas Gifts to Crochet


“Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus lane.” My husband and I have been prepping our two year old that Christmas is on its way [3] and we’ve been talking about all the traditions that come with it. I asked her what she wanted Santa to bring her and she said “a cookie.” Kids say the cutest things ever! Because we’re planning on keeping gifts at a minimum this year I thought it would be a good idea to make some crochet Christmas gifts [4] this year. It’s great to stay thrifty, especially with a growing family. Going thrifty might mean you already have some of the materials at home. See what we had to work with:
