Moms can be so hard to shop for and they never seem to tell you what they want. If your mom or grandma loves to knit, these Mother’s day gifts for knitters are the perfect way to spoil them this year. So many practical and fun ideas here!
Mother’s Day Gifts for Knitters
My mom is a knitter, so I know first hand what shopping for someone who loves to knit is like. Knitters usually love practical gifts that make knitting easier, plus fun knitting related gifts too. After all, knitting isn’t just a hobby; it’s a lifestyle.
Knitters have a lot of yarn, but just to be clear, never enough. Get her something to organize and transport it easily.
Electronic Stitch Counter
If she keeps losing her place knitting because the drama on tv is too good these electronic stitch counters can help.
Bamboo Knitting Needles
Knitting with bamboo is different than metal needles in a great way. Get her something that she might not get for herself because “she already has enough”.
Get her a book with patterns of things she might not have made otherwise, or something that interests her. Alternatively, grabbing patterns of things you want her to make is a great hint hint. (Yes mom I do need more socks).
This handy tool will help mom determine needle sizing. It also has a magnifying strip if she struggles to read the tiny numbers.
Ball of Yarn Necklace
Knitting gifts don’t have to be old fashioned. Get mom something modern like this necklace.
Knitting Time Clock
This is probably why mom was late for Mother’s Day brunch.
Rather than having them all in a bin help mom get organized this Mother’s Day by giving her this needle holder.
Not only does it look pretty, this knitting ring will help mom knit faster than ever.
Knitflicks and Wine Bag
Even mom can appreciate a good joke. Get her a bag for her knitting that highlights the better things in life.
Coffee mugs always make great Mother’s Day gifts but get her one that’s more suited to her interests. Like this one that says “if I can’t bring my knitting I’m not going”.
This is a great gift for a younger mom who’s just getting into knitting. It’s funny but also explains all the basics so she can get started with a hobby that’s really making a come back.
Don’t Talk to Me Shirt
There have been so many times I’ve tried to talking to my mom and she just stares blankly until I realize she’s actually counting her stitches. Oops.
Vintage Knitting Patterns
If you’re shopping for an older mom, get her some patterns from her childhood. This is great if there are grandkids to knit for.
Winter is Coming Yarn Bowl
A yarn bowl in general make s a great Mother’s Day gift for knitters but this one is super stylish as well. A great gift that she’ll be able to use every day!
Knit Simple Magazine Subscription
Subscriptions make great gifts because they’re something they keep getting all year. Get them one for a knitting magazine.
Custom Knitting Sign
Why not gift something unique this Mother’s Day with a custom sign for mom?
Yarn of the Month Club
More exciting than Christmas! Each month mom will get a box of handmade yarn shipped to her with this very special gift.
If your mom loves to knit she’s going to adore these Mother’s day gifts for knitters! While you’re at it, make sure you tell mom how much you appreciate the knitting she does for you.
