Cricut Christmas Gift Ideas
They buy the Cricut and then eventually I always get a text that says something like umm okay I bought a Cricut, now what? What should I do first?
What are your favorite products to go with it?
Today I’m answering one of those questions – what are the essential things for a beginner Cricut user to have – specifically for people who want to make things for parties and activities or games for their kids – since that’s my favorite thing to do with my Cricut. Or even one of these cute monthly kids date night box!
My number one item I’m recommending is the Cricut Maker. While I love the Explore machines and all the projects you can make with a Cricut Explore Air 2, the Maker is just so versatile – and Cricut is always coming out with new things for the Maker.
If you have the budget for it, it’s definitely the way to go.
Most of the items on this list can be used with both the Cricut Explore Air 2 and the Cricut Maker but some of them (like the knife blade) are Cricut Maker specific. I’ll make a note if they’re only to be used with the Maker and give an alternative for the Explore line of machines.
Cricut Gift Ideas
Okay, let’s get to it!
I’ve broken these Cricut gifts into three different sections – machines, materials, and tools.
Machines are going to be on the more pricey end and would make a great gift for say a wife or daughter who loves to craft.
Tools can be anywhere from super affordable (hello Cricut Weeder) to a little more pricey. These really only work if someone already has a machine OR they’re getting one for Christmas. Tools tend to be a little on the smaller side and also make GREAT stocking stuffers for women!
The materials list are all pretty affordable items and things that you could use whether or not someone has a machine. Some of them need a machine (Everyday Iron on) and some of them you could use without one. I still recommend Cricut materials even if someone doesn’t have a machine because the quality is typically better than other items out there.
Cricut Gifts: Machines
There are a number of different machines out there that would make great Cricut Christmas gift ideas but I’m recommending just my two favorites!
While most of the larger Cricut EasyPress options come with an EasyPress mat, the smaller ones like the Cricut EasyPress Mini don’t. If you’re getting something smaller, I also recommend getting a Cricut EasyPress Mat – way easier to use and more precise than a towel.
Cricut Gifts: Tools
There are also tons and tons of Cricut tools options that would make great Cricut gifts. Pens in every color, different types of wheels, styluses, cutters, and more. And if you want to cut fabric and sew with your Cricut Maker, there are even more options!
I’ve put together a list of my personal favorite Cricut tools – ones that I use on a regular basis for games, parties, and activities with my kids.
I also included a Cricut Access membership because honestly that’s one of the best tools you can have for your Cricut Machine. An annual subscription is the perfect gift for a Cricut beginner and cheaper than a month to month plan!
Don’t have a Cricut Maker? The Cricut Scoring Stylus is a good option for the Explore Air 2. Or a cheaper alternative for the Cricut Maker – I just prefer the scoring wheel.
Cricut Gifts: Materials
I’ve mentioned it before but the Cricut Maker can cut all the things. That means that Cricut has created all sorts of materials for easy cutting. There’s patterned vinyl, party foil, leather, and even wood.
These are some of my personal favorites because I’ve found the Cricut versions work better than other similar materials out there. So while you could just go out and buy regular glitter card stock, I’ve mentioned why I recommend these Cricut materials instead.
Want to make someone with a Cricut Maker happy? Buy them a pack of various materials from this list and wrap it up with a pretty bow.
If you’re getting Cricut Basic vinyl for someone, I recommend adding a pack of Cricut Transfer tape as well. While transfer tape is not absolutely necessary, it makes applying vinyl so much easier. Especially if you’re a perfectionist!
