One of the things I love to do the most with my Cricut is making gifts for other people!
The Cricut makes it so easy to make customized gifts for your loved ones. From complex to simple, there’s really no limit on the imagination and creativity you can put into your gifts.
Anyone who makes gifts for the holidays knows that you need to start early, so even though it’s just the middle of September, I thought I would share some fun gift ideas that you can make for your Cricut.
Now, these aren’t specific to Christmas or any particular holiday, so you can use these ideas all year long.
I’ve gathered some ideas from some talented bloggers across the Internet, and I think you’ll be happy to find some really fun ideas in this post. If you have any gift ideas that you really love to make, please leave a comment so we can all learn from you as well!
First off, I wanted to share a couple of gift ideas I’ve made here on the blog:
This is a great gift idea for a child, a family gift, or even for a grandparent. My mom said she would love one of these. You can make whatever pictures you want, but I chose to make this board with pictures of all my nieces and nephews (and of course, my kiddos). It’s such a fun and personalized idea!
These are SO fun! You can easily customize your puzzles or use the template I came up with.
This was a more recent project here on the blog, but it’s perfect for someone who loves going to the beach or to the pool. It is a beach bag and beach towel in one!
Custom socks are ALL the rage right now. I made these a while back, and I thought they turned out pretty cute. You can use my template, or you can easily make your own templates and just use our tips for applying to socks (I strongly recommend the Easy Press Mini for making socks!)
DIY LEGO Station – Obviously, this will need more than your Cricut. But it can help you create some fun labels!
Here are some Cricut gift ideas that you can make straight from Design Space. As usual, some of these are free ideas, some are included with an Access subscription, and others are paid:
- Felt Gift Basket (these would be SO fun for so many gifts)
- Coloring Pages
- Leather Basket
- Pineapple Hair Clips
- Positive Affirmation Coasters
- Reclaimed Wood Sign
- Leather Strappy Cuff
- Leather Basket
- Felt Finger Puppets
- Leather wallet
- Fabric Headband
- Pirate hat and bandana
And that’s just tipping the scale. Definitely take some time to browse Design Space for lots of different ideas. You can also make tons of t-shirts, tote bags, pillows, etc.
