Stuck for a Secret Santa gift, forgotten that long-lost relative or just run out of time? Never fear! We have some quick and easy last minute gifts to save the day!

Scrubbies and Soap

A cute scrubbie with a bar of posh soap is a really quick present that anyone would love to receive! King Cole and Wendy have both released yarns that have been created specifically for this purpose!

Click here for the pattern that Holly used to make her very own scrubbie, shown in the photo.


Mug Cosies

A pretty mug filled with treats, wrapped up in a little knitted or crocheted jacket, is a really lovely gift to give and receive :)

Pom Pom Hat

Toft pom poms are the sofest balls of fluff you have ever seen or touched, and they add a touch of luxury to any item. Customise an old hat and give it a new lease of life by simply sewing one on top!

(Gill customised her hat - shown in the photo - after Bertie, her dog, chewed the original pom pom off!)

 Pom Pom Hat


You can make the gorgeous knitted cowl scarf shown in the photo with just one hank of 'Gorgeous' - a super soft yarn by Sirdar. The pattern is on the inside of the ball band!


Christmas Socks

These seriously cheerful Christmas socks from West Yorkshire Spinners will give anyone a bounce in their step! They use 'Holly Berry' and 'Cherry Drop', which can both be found here and you can find the free pattern here!

(If you're not a quick knitter, why not add in some double point needles and gift it as a DIY present?!)

WYS socks

Chocolate Orange Covers

Everyone loves a Chocolate Orange, and this quick and easy crochet bobble hat pattern adds a touch of fun!
