There is no better way to show someone how much you love them during the holiday season than with a handmade gift.

No matter your skill level or craft of choice, there’s something for every kind of maker on our list. Explore Sweet Pea Crochet and Nordic Baby Crochet for baby blanket patterns and cozy knits for little ones that new parents will adore. The fashion lover in your life will be wowed by modern, comfortable knitwear from the pages of Knitting for Olive or Close Knit. Or for Squishmallow fans, make them a cuddly friend all their own with Chonky Amigurumi, The Wonderful World of Rose Minuscule, or Animal Amigurumi Adventures!
