Useful Holiday Gifts
I am a mom of 4, so when it comes to holiday gifts – I tend to want useful and practical, but honestly…you still want something fun too. With little ones running around I don’t get a ton of time to myself, so I love finding items that can fill my cup but also help us out.
I got my first Cricut about 5 years ago for Christmas and was soooo excited. I am a crafter through and through, but I also really wanted something that could help me with really useful things as a young mom.
I love a ‘perfect’ organized and labeled home, but buying things on Etsy a the time was so out of our budget, so I was excited to be able to create those things on my own.
What I have used my Cricut for
Over the years I swear I could give you 1 million examples on things I have used my Cricut for, but I will list a few below – because honestly the options are so endless.
Things I have done around the House:
- Cut stencils to paint tile floor
- Labeled Pantry bins
- Created stencils to paint curtains
- Created Labels for my kids craft bins
- Custom platters and cutting boards for teacher and neighbor gifts
- Used it to create countless doormats
- My kids Play Kitchen
Fun Personal Uses:
- I have created more shirts than I can even think of.
- Created pillows
- Created gift tags, cards, and so much more!
- Labeled everything the kids need for school.
- So many Halloween costumes
My Newest Love – The Cricut Joy
This year my love for Cricut grew when I got the Cricut Joy. I had been wanting to try the Joy, and was so excited to be given the opportunity. I have been asked so many times on my Instagram stories why I love the Cricut Joy and which machine to get if it is your first one.
That is honestly a bit of a hard question, because it does depend a bit on what you are wanting to create. The size of the Joy is both full of endless possibilities, but also does come with some holdbacks – clearly you aren’t making large squares.
That said – I Personally find myself grabbing my Joy more often due to its convenient size that makes it so easy for me to get out in a minutes notice.
I also am OBSESSED with the Smart Vinyl and the bluetooth technology. When I want to do a small project I don’t second guess it because it is so convenient.
What Else to Get your Cricut Lover?
So maybe you already have a Cricut, or the person you are buying for does. Or maybe you’re looking for additional things to ask for so you feel totally ready to tackle any projects.
I wanted to list some other items I recommend gifting with your Cricut Joy this year!
- Easy Press – if you think you will be doing much in terms of fabric I highly recommend the heat press – I just got one a couple of months ago, and it is a game changer in terms of making those items seamless.
- The Essential tool set will give them everything they need to get started with their projects.
- Cricut Joy Smart Vinyl
- Cricut Joy Transfer Tape
- Cricut Joy Smart Iron on
Add all of these items with your Joy for a perfect holiday gift bundle – or this is a great way to give multiple people the option to gift you the gift of creativity at your finger tips.
