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.

This post contains affiliates links and at no cost to you I may earn a teeny tiny commission if you choose to purchase them. Please know that I only recommend products I use and love! Thank you for supporting Le Petit Saint Crochet! You can read my full (and slightly boring) full disclosure here.
Cozy Cottage Christmas Toy Blanket
If you’re someone like me who loves to crochet and knit toys, this is the project for you!
I designed the little Cozy Cottage Christmas Toy Blanket two years ago and it’s still one of my favorite projects.
You’ll find the link to the FREE pattern as well as the video tutorial.
Cute Crochet Glass Jar Cover
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!
Faux Fur Headband
Stephanie from All About Ami always creates the most beautiful projects. I love her style and her Faux Fur Headband is no exception.
This headband will work up faster than a snowman melts on a warm sunny day.
Get the FREE pattern and whip up some gorgeous headbands.
Rudolph’s Soap Cozy
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!
Crochet Earbud Holder
I don’t own earbuds myself but all of my kids do and they use them all the time. This is such a fun way for them to keep them safe and carry them around.
This is also a great stash buster and works up lickity split! Plus you can make it their favorite colors!
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!
Golden Fave Twist Headband
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!
You could make one for your family or friend and whip one up for yourself! (Don’t forget to take care of YOU this holiday season).
Jessica from Mama in a Stitch always has the most gorgeous FREE crochet patterns on her blog and this is one of my favorites.
Crochet Hudson Hat & Mittens
This is a gorgeous FREE pattern from Repeat Crafter Me. You can make the hat and mittens in 0-3 months size all the way up to adult!
The beautiful Wool Ease in the color way Hudson Bay is the superstar here! How gorgeous are those colors.
Because Wool Ease Thick & Quick is a bulky yarn it works up super quickly and you can’t beat
their color selection.
Crochet Snowman Wine Cozy
If you’ll be attending any holiday parties this Christmas season, this little Crochet Snowman Wine Cozy would be an adorable addition to the festivities.
I love when a pattern is super simple, but totally adorable!! Putting your favorite wine or sparkling cider in this little snowman cozy will be the hit of the gift exchange!
Crochet Red Gingham Hot Pad
There isn’t a pattern from Daisy Farm Crafts that I don’t adore! Everything this mother/daughter duo designs is absolutely gorgeous.
Making a set of gingham hot pads would be such a wonderful last minute crochet Christmas gift for your family and friends.
Who doesn’t need a hot pad in the kitchen? I may need to make a few of these for myself!
I also love that you could combine any colors you like to make a gorgeous gingham combination.
Beehive Messy Bun Hat
The Beehive messy bun hat is perfect for your family member of friend who loves to wear their hair up but needs to keep their head warm in the winter.
This one is super pretty and I love the surprise bow at the back of the hat!
Made with a super bulky yarn, this project is going to work up quickly!
Basketweave Cup Cozy – Super Last Minute Crochet Christmas Gift!
How fun are these cup cozies from One Dog Woof??? I am in love and now I want all the cups in my kitchen cupboards to have a little cozy of their own! Lol!
This is one of the perfect last minute crochet Christmas gifts that you can whip up super quick for a beloved family or friend.
