Easy presents can be hard to come up with every holiday. It seems they come so frequently every year, it's so easy to run out of gift ideas (especially when the same people seem to be on the receiving end of gift giving holidays all the time)! To be honest, you, as a knitter, actually have it easy. You have a skill that allows you to create a gift that you can't find in stores or from a factory. We've put together this massive list of 62 knit gift ideas, separated by holiday, so you'll never run out of gift ideas again.
From all different colors, stitches, and skill levels, this list of gift ideas is also really handy if you're having a hard time deciding between an array of gifts for that hard-to-shop-for person in your life. There are a ton of options here, so even that picky gift-receiver will end up with a knit gift that he or she will love. If you love these knit gifts, but you're looking for projects a little bigger because the person you're knitting for is really special and you have more time, check out our categories on the left for men, sweaters, scarves, and shawls.

This works for a special day for any man.

Okay, what you've heard is true: your mom will love anything you give her, even if it was a bag of day-old lasagna. She loves you too much to dislike anything that comes from you, so why go that extra mile? It's because she deserves it. These gift ideas come from the heart just as much as the needles, and the best part is that your mom will be able to use them all the time! Since moms are always on-the-go and busy with something, we've included some knit bag patterns and cases to help her keep track of things, as well as some other knick-knacks she's bound to get some real use out of.

Coming up with birthday gifts can be tricky. If you really know and love the person you're shopping for, then you already have a good idea of what he or she would adore, but what if you're trying to come up with gift ideas for a really picky person, or a person who has it all, or an acquaintance that you don't know that well? These gift ideas are evergreen - that means that they'll work for just about everyone. Naturally, you won't want to give that person who can't drive a steering wheel cover, or the person who hates reading a bookmark, so try and have some basic knowledge of the recipient before deciding what to knit them.

- Fuzzy Faux Fur Knit Slippers
- Precious Flower Gift Pouch
- One Ball Mary Jane Slippers
- One Hour Scarf
- Nintendo DS Case with Game Pockets
- Gift Card Sweaters

Of course, with Valentine's Day gift ideas, you're not limited to only your significant other. Brothers, sisters, parents, and even friends will still love some of these gifts, and we know your sweetheart will love any of them. Remember to choose this one carefully; that special someone is worth the time and energy.

If someone you know has been blessed with a baby, the only thing you can do is celebrate! The baby shower is one of the most exciting parts of a person's pregnancy, but it's so easy to accidentally buy something that someone else has already bought the happy mom-to-be. Instead, you could knit her some of these adorable gift ideas for baby attire, blankets, and accessories! The little bundle of joy will surely enjoy a hand-knit, cuddly gift when he or she is brought into this world. Because you might not know the sex yet (neither might the mother!) we've kept these gift ideas very gender-neutral.
