Handmade Holidays, 18 Designers Share their Favorite Handmade Gifts

I love handmade gifts, don't you?  I love to make things, and I am tickled to no end when someone chooses to give me something they've lovingly created.  I asked some of my bloggy designer friends to share with us a creation of theirs that would make the perfect handmade gift!

Here are 18 fabulous projects that you can whip up on your hook that people would love, which ones will you be making this gift giving season?

Elizabeth from Calleigh's Clips and Crochet Creations says, 
"This Slouch is not only my personal favorite design to make and wear, it's a fan favorite too! Has a unique texture that works up mindlessly for a perfectly light but warm and cozy slouch."

Celina from Simply Collectible says,
"Appropriate for any age and size, Coraline in Morocco Cowl is a super simple and quick project that can look very different depending on the fiber used."

Maria from Pattern Paradise shares a bright colorful hat with a lovely stitch...would make a great gift!

Katy from Adventures of KT and the Squid says, 
"One skein Infinity scarf that works up quick! You can use a solid color to highlight the unique stitch or multicolor yarn for a fun striping effect like I did."

Kara from Petals To Picots says,
"A gift card holder ... adding a handmade touch to giving gift cards."

Kim from Crochet Kim says,
"I love this pattern for a gift. So quick and easy. And, even the teenagers like it."

Erangi from Crochet For You says, 
"Crochet bracelet pattern for teenage girls. They are so quick and easy to crochet!" 

Tamara from Moogly says,
"It's a one skein pattern where the yarn does all the work, and it combines infinity scarves and chevrons, which are both very trendy!"

Elena from Beatrice Ryan Designs says, 
"This Amazing Grace Infinity Scarf is simple to make, can be worn in a variety of ways and will dress up any holiday outfit!"

Jessie from Jessie At Home says,
"The chain wrap bracelet is quick and easy to make, and it can be worn as a super stylish wrap bracelet or as a choker."

Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet says, 
"The Zola Bulky Stacked Shell Cowl and Shrug is a great gift because of the flexibility in how it can be worn. It is fashionable and fun."

Katherine from KatiD Creations says,

Mistie from American Crochet says,
"Fingerless Arm Warmers are perfect for this time of year and they are quick/easy to make."

Amanda from Raising Robertsons Crochet says,
"Charmys super charged slippers make a great gift idea this coming holiday! Nothing says"I love you and I care" like some hand made slippers to keep your loved ones warm and happy."

Pia from Stitches 'N Scraps says,
"My ribbed fingerless mitts were actually designed for a last minute gift - comes in adult and child sizes, the ribbing makes them stretchy so you don't have to worry about exact sizing, they can be made with or without the fun fur edging so are great for guys and girls, and it's a good scrap yarn project too - I have some striping examples on the post for where I mixed and matched yarns."

Sara from Posh Pooch Designs shares this beautiful and colorful shrug...a special gift indeed!

Jocelyn from The Hippy Hooker says,
"Perfect for any coffee lover, a beginner crocheter can whip up a set of these in no time!"

Jennifer from Tw-In Stitches says,
"Lacy poncho is a great addition to any wardrobe and sure to delight the recipient!" 

A special thank you to everyone for sharing your beautiful designs!  

Here's my Fiber Flux pick too!  
The Kristen Shawl is lacy, fun, and pretty and requires no special sizing...just work more rows to increase its size...a lovely gift!
