A handmade washcloth or reusable discloth scrubby makes a practical gift. Use cotton yarn and a textured stitch like moss or seed stitch. Make sets of 2-3 in different colors.
Pot holders and drink coasters are useful gifts people always appreciate. Single crochet in the round with thick cotton yarn to complete a coaster in 15 minutes. Personalize with stitching or appliques.

Beginner scarves are easy gifts that look impressive. Use bulky yarn and simple stitches like double crochet to whip up a chunky cowl or neck warmer in an hour or less.
Mini tree ornaments make sweet little gifts and stocking stuffers. Crochet tiny snowflakes, hearts, stars or flowers. Add a loop for hanging. Make a unique ornament for each recipient.

Jazz up purchased gifts by nestling them inside a hand crocheted bag or basket. Use chunky yarn and basic stitches to crochet pouches, totes or baskets in any size quickly.
With some crochet hooks, a few balls of yarn, and simple stitches, you can create cute last minute gifts anyone will appreciate.
