Mother’s Day Gifts/Birthday Gifts

My mom is one of my favorite people to crochet for…and for one particular reason…she’s the easiest! It can be so hard to find good crochet gifts for men or gifts for teenage guys. But there are a plethora of amazing gifts for women.

The patterns I will be showing you today are great for any occasion—mother’s day, Christmas, or a mom’s birthday!

What should I crochet for my mom?

It really depends on what she likes best! There are tons of options, but here are a few ideas to get you thinking:

  • a practical gift like a scrubby, dishcloth, or set of baskets
  • a beautiful garment or shawl
  • a bouquet of flowers that will never die

Of course, there are tons of patterns out there for all of those things! I have lots to show you today, all in the realm of crocheting. Of course, you can also branch out and try other crafts, like a handmade origami flower.

But for the purposes of this article, I have split the gifts up into 3 categories. If you are most interested in one of them, use the table of contents below to skip to it.

Ultimate List of Crochet Gifts for Mom

So without further ado, let’s get to all the wonderful patterns!

Practical Gifts

Let’s start out by looking at a bunch of practical gifts! If your mom likes gifts that can be put to use in the home, then these will be perfect.

Round Kitchen Scrubby

First of all, take a look at this Round Kitchen Scrubby. I have to say, this is one of the best quick gift ideas for mom I can think of. It is just a simple crocheted circle, but made with a special scrubby yarn that is sure to last a long time.

Yarn Used: Yarn Bee Scrubology

Double Crochet Dishcloth

Next up, the Double Crochet Dishcloth! If you have some cotton yarn in your stash that needs using up, a dishcloth for mom is one of the best things you can make. This particular pattern just uses simple double crochet, with a crab stitch border.

Yarn Used: Lily Sugar ‘N Cream

Sunflower Coasters

Does your mom love bright sunflowers as home decor? If so, then this Sunflower Coaster is a must-have! You can easily whip up a set of 3 or 4 in a few days. You’ll just need some worsted weight yarn to get started. These were particularly popular among moms at the last craft show I did!

(In fact, a lot of these patterns are good for selling at craft shows. You can find tips for making money crocheting here if you’re interested in doing things like this!)

Yarn Used: Heartland and Yarn Bee Soft Secret

Dish Scrubber

Another great kitchen scrubby pattern to try is this Square Dish Scrubber. I love this pattern because it uses Red Heart Scrubby yarn. I’ve made this as a gift for my mom in the past, and she loves it! It is super useful and functional. Great for cleaning extra grit and grime off of dishes!

Hanging Baskets

If your mom loves kitchen organization, these Moonbeam Hanging Baskets are a great gift idea! They work up very quickly with bulky weight yarn, and feature a pretty half-double-crochet cluster stitch. Make just one or a whole set to use around the house!

Yarn Used: Cascade Lana Granda (or sub Lion Brand Thick & Quick)

Flower Coasters

Next up, meet the Forget-Me-Not Coasters. I love these coasters because they are still round, but feature a flower in the the center. You can easily make a stunning set by choosing your mom’s favorite colors and alternating them between the flower and the lace portion!

Yarn Used: Mary Maxim Mellowspun

Soap Saver

An extremely practical gift to make is a Soap Saver! This is literally my new favorite practical crochet project. You just stick your bar of soap in there, and it saves the shower becoming a sticky mess with soap residue! Isn’t that neat?

Yarn Used: Lily Sugar ‘N Cream

Blue Skies Dishcloth

Last but not least in the practical section, we have the Blue Skies Dishcloth! This dishcloth is a bit more unique, with pretty v-stitches spaced throughout it. Make it to match your mom’s kitchen! You could even add a second color if you wanted to customize it even more.

Yarn Used: Lily Sugar ‘N Cream

Wearable Gifts

I know some moms don’t appreciate getting practical gifts on Mother’s Day. They might prefer something that she can wear, something that is tailored (no pun intended!) to her taste. If so, these patterns will be just what you need!

Alicia Ear Warmer

First up, take a look at the Alicia Ear Warmer. If your mom is a big headband fan, she’ll love this! The design features 3 mini twisted cables that are cinched together at the front. This ear warmer has been a best seller at many crocheters’ craft shows!

Yarn Used: Mary Maxim Woodlands

Two-Toned Srunchies

If you want something wearable that is super quick, try out these Two-Toned Scrunchies. I just sold a scrunchie to a girl at my church who wanted one for her mom! If your mom also loves scrunchies, why not handmake some for her? This pattern comes with 2 variations and you can easily customize them.

Yarn Used: Various

Eva Rectangular Shawl

Is your mom a shawl-lover? If so, the Eva Rectangular Shawl might be right up her alley. This is a rectangle shawl that is SUPER EASY to make. It just uses simple stitches (chains, single crochet, and double crochet). Plus, even though it looks large, it uses bulky weight yarn to make the process go fast!

Yarn Used: KC Spark Yarn

Lunar Lace Tunic

This is something I designed specifically for my mom: the Lunar Lace Tunic. This is a longer project, but it is definitely worth it. Featuring a pretty open-work stitch, it is a perfect spring top to give to your mom at Mother’s Day. Just make sure you know her measurements before starting!

Dragonfly Shawl

Another shawl that makes a great gift is the Dragonfly Shawl. This is your perfect one-skein wonder! You’ll just need one cake of Bernat Pop Yarn (or another medium to bulky weight). I do love how a self-striping yarn looks in this design though.

Uniquely Thoughtful Gifts

Lastly, I want to show you some unique gift ideas that just seem extra thoughtful. Some of them are individual patterns, and others combine a host of patterns to make one cute idea! You’ll see what I mean soon.

Bouquet of Flowers

My first idea is to form a unique bouquet of crocheted flowers for your mom! You can do this by finding patterns for your mom’s favorite flowers and combining them in one vase. One pretty flower I found is this Lily of the Valley.

Here are a few more 3D flowers that would go great in a bouquet:

Spa Set

If you liked the quick gifts from the first section of this post, but want to make them seem extra special, one idea is to make a spa set! I made these for a craft show and they looked so pretty (see below).

All I did was make 2 face scrubbies, 1 washcloth, and 1 soap saver in coordinating colors. Then, I used cellophane to wrap it up in a beautiful way!

Flower Pot

If your mom likes REAL flowers, another cool idea is to make a Flower Pot with a plant inside. This pattern is by Cheryl from Crochet 365 Knit Too. Doesn’t it look just adorable?

Yarn Used: Any worsted weight
