It's great that you are starting early so you'll have time to try several patterns and be able to make a choice of gifts.
There are so many sites to choose from but my group keeps a list of sites that offer ideas and patterns for beginners.

One is to make circles. They can be used for so many things like putting two of them together for a pin cusion (will send you my submissions for some help), you can sew them together later for a lapgan or place mats, hot pads (not pot holders, but the kind you lay under a hot pan), and so many other projects like vests, chair and arm covers and more.

The link I am sending now is for a virtual plethora of free patterns, so you can search to your hearts content.

and here is my submissions you might want to try.

I love this simple stitch. If you can master a chain and a single crochet, you can make these for gifts or to keep.

Hot Pad: Chain 25, this gives you a 6" square base.

Make a single crochet in the 1st chain, skip a chain and make a chain 1, then a single in the 3rd chain...and the 5th, and 7th...etc. Make sure to do the last single in the end of the chain and chain 1, then turn.

Repeat this pattern till you have 23 rows. For some reason, a row is a bit taller than a chain, so your work will need an odd number of rows to make a true 6" by 6" square. Bind off and work in tail.

Making two of these will give you the perfect thickness for a hot pad. Hot glue a cross on the back side of each almost to the edges but not all the way. Then set the other on top and press down. Sew around the edges in a running stitch (my fav') or a whip stitch. Now...

Pot holders are different than hot pads. One is to be around the burner and should never be acrylic. When it ignites, it's plastic so it goes molten and can burn you bad. Hot Pads are just to protect your counter and tables so they can't get close to the flame or burner.

These work up really thick which is also another reason for a hot pad as they don't fold or bend well.

Here is a photo of some I have done.
I hope that helps!!

There is a website: knittinghelp.com that also offers crochet help and patterns. you can ask this same question on their forum if you don't find a simple pattern. also go to your local library for books on crochet for beginners. or call a local yarn/craft store to ask is they have classes for beginners.

they will often offer to let you come in for free to get one-on-one help if they are a privately owned store. you'll find them to be very friendly. you can also google knit/crochet guilds or clubs in your area and call them for help. hope that helps!
