It’s no secret that I absolutely love my Cricut. I have been crafting with the newer models of the Cricut machines for the last 3 years. Ever since the Explore Air 2 came onto the market. But I was crafting with Cricut long ago. When the very first machine came out.
Since I’ve been creating with the Cricut for 3 years, I’ve learned a lot and know just how much fun these products can be. There are so many possibilities of projects to make. I also know that it can be a little overwhelming if you are first diving into the world of cutting machines. It’s hard to know just where to start and what you will actually need.
This Cricut Gift Guide is perfect for those who are ready to make the plunge and get started creating with a Cricut. Now I actually have 2 different machines. I have the Explore Air 2 (see all the reasons I love the Cricut Explore Air 2), and I also have the newest machine, the Maker. Both machines are really great machines. But for this gift guide I’ve just included the Explore Air 2.
I think the Explore Air 2 is the perfect cutting machine for the beginning crafter. It is a little more affordable which is perfect for someone who might not be quite sure of what they want to do with their machine. The Explore Air 2 can cut so many materials and do some other cool things, so it’s a great starter machine.
The Explore Air 2 is the perfect machine for a crafter who is ready to start creating with a cutting machine.
Get access to thousands of images and fonts. The design possibilities are endless. Plus Cricut Access users often get additional discounts when making purchases.
Having extra cutting mats is the best plan so that the cutting and crafting can happen for any type of material.
This basic tool set is perfect for paper crafting and weeding vinyl.
Cricut premium vinyl comes in both removable and permanent. With solid, glitter and pattern options. And don't forget the transfer tape to put all those amazing designs onto your projects.
The Cricut EasyPress 2 is one of the best companions to the Explore Air 2. Along with the EasyPress mat, they are the perfect tools for someone who wants to make their own t-shirts.
Cricut has a great array of iron on vinyl. Everyday Iron on vinyl, foil iron on, glitter iron on and patterned iron to name a few. Grab a couple rolls to help get your crafter started.
Of all the papers I've cut using my Cricut, the cardstock is probably my favorite. There are so many color options when it comes to Cricut cardstock and it's perfect for card making and banner making.
The Cricut Explore Air 2 can write! Yep. It's something that I don't do often enough, but am happy that I have these pens available when my project calls for a little writing.
As I mentioned, there are so many project possibilities when it comes to the Cricut. And they may not NEED everything on this list. But they will probably want it! 🙂
