11+ Gorgeous Crochet Gift Ideas for Teachers

This post may contain affiliate links, view my disclosure policy for details.

These crochet gift ideas are just perfect for teacher appreciation gifts! Each pattern is quick and easy to work up, and perfect for using up some of that leftover yarn 🙂

As the daughter of a teacher, we had more ‘World’s Best Teacher’ mugs in our house than the average family. She definitely appreciated the sentiment but I’m sure that after the first few mugs my mum would have loved something a bit different! (She also got lots of chocolates at Christmas time – surprisingly, we never complained about those).

Quick and Easy Gift Ideas

All of these patterns are super quick and easy to make, so they are perfect last-minute gift ideas, or if for gifts that you need to make in bulk.

For each of the projects below, I list the pattern format as well as the recommended yarn. This allows you to see at a glance what you might be able to use from your stash to make a special teacher crochet gift.

So, let’s get crocheting!




Cobble Soap Saver Bag by Made with a Twist (Guest Design by Lisa of Stitch in Progress)

This chunky cotton soap saver would make a lovely gift for any teacher. Just pop in a bar of luxury soap and you’re good to go! (I love these ones by The Handmade Soap Company, and I’m also partial to anything by L’Occitane).
