Mother’s Day Gifts for Moms Who Knit

Sarah Woodard April 08, 2018

Many moms use knitting as their way to relax at the end of the day. It’s a great way to spend time with the family watching a favorite show while still doing something they want to do. Even if you’re not a fan of the handmade holiday sweaters or socks, your knitting mom would love Mother’s Day gifts that support her hobby. Here’s a few suggestions to help you get started.


Table Top Yarn Swift

How often does someone in your family get pressed into service to hold a skein of yarn while Mom winds it? No fun, right? Buy her a yarn swift for Mother’s Day and Mom won’t need your hands any more.

Hand Balm

Dry hands can catch on yarn and make knitting a little less fun. Plus, yarn can dry out skin even more than it already is (especially wool fiber.) Help mom love her hobby even more and prevent dry, chapped hands with our soothing balm.

Yarn Club

Chances are Mom already has a pretty sizable yarn stash, but that doesn’t mean she would love more of it! Sign her up for a bi-monthly yarn club. Depending on Mom’s knitting preference, you can choose between exclusive yarns or sock yarn.

Knitting Kits

Knitting kits come with a pattern and all the yarn Mom needs to make it. They’re a great Mother’s Day gift because there’s no guess work. Getting yarn or a pattern by itself often means they sit unused for a time until the perfect pattern (if the gift was yarn) or yarn (if the gift was a pattern) can be found.

Gift Certificate

Not completely sure what you mom would want? That’s okay! It can seem like avid knitters already have all the supplies and yarn they need. You can still show your love and support with a gift certificate so Mom can pick her own stuff.


This Mother’s Day, think about how you can show your mom you love her and her knitting hobby, even if you don’t always love what she makes.
