Gift Ideas for a Crafter – Cricut Accessories and Materials
I have been so excited to share these gift ideas today! I love doing Cricut projects so much and truly believe that anyone who loves to craft will love it too. Most of these gift ideas are Cricut accessories, tools or materials that I use on at least a weekly basis!
If you love crafting but you don’t have a Cricut machine yet, I recommend putting one on your wish list! Getting a Cricut will allow you to take your crafting to the next level!
The possibilities that come out of being able to design and cut different materials are endless. I thought today I’d speak to those people who like me, want to personalize all the things.
Maybe you want to make Iron-On t-shirts, shoes, or vinyl signs? Maybe gifts for friends and family? Whatever it is… it’s going to be so much fun!
Cricut Explore Air 2
The Cricut Explore Air 2 is the perfect machine to start with, and comes in lots of different colors. To start off on the right foot, I recommend a Cricut Explore Air 2 Bundle – which includes the machine, and a set of essential tools and mats you need to get started crafting!
A Yearly Cricut Access subscription is the perfect thing for a new Cricut crafter, or one who has been cricut-ing forever!
If you don’t Cricut, you might be wondering, What is Cricut Access?
Cricut Access is a subscription that gives you access to thousands of design files, fonts and tutorials. Check out some of the many Cricut Access projects in Design Space here! It opens the door to more creative project ideas and makes designing new projects fun and easy.
Pro Tip: Cricut Access includes a lot of fonts. I created a list of the best Cricut fonts and shared some tips on how to make them more awesome in this post: Cricut Fonts – Everything You Need to Know
There are a lot of Cricut accessories to choose from. How do you know which ones you will get the most use out of!? Let me try to help…
The EasyPress 2 is a game changer if you want to do Iron-On or Infusible Ink crafts. It comes in three sizes so you can pick which one is best for you based on whether you plan to do smaller iron-on projects (like baby onesies) or larger projects. You’ll want an EasyPress Mat to go along with this as well!
Projects to make with EasyPress 2: These fun DIY Christmas Pajamas, Customized Tote Bags, or Disney T-Shirts! Check out this detailed tutorial How to make a T-Shirt with Cricut as well.
The EasyPress Mini is the newest addition to the EasyPress family. It is so much fun, and at a lower price point than the bigger EasyPress models it would make a perfect budget-friendly gift!
More Cricut Accessories
An Iron-On Protective Sheet is also a must if you plan on layering Iron-On.
Project Idea: I recently made Floral Sneakers for me and my little girls with the EP Mini, and Monogrammed Backpacks too!
All of these Cricut accessories just make the process of making things easier and more fun!
A Cricut Essential Tool Kit is truly essential if you use a Cricut machine. I cannot live without weeding tools, and I like to have multiple. If you ask me, extra Cricut weeders would also make great gifts or stocking stuffers!

Cricut Supplies! There are so many different types of Iron-On and Vinyl to choose from. From basic colors to patterns and Disney or Star Wars themed, there is literally something for everyone!
An assortment of pretty colors of Iron-On or Vinyl would make a fantastic gift. If you don’t know which colors to choose, try a sampler.
Iron-On Samplers come as one roll with three or four different colors of Iron-On included. I love the Everyday Iron-On Tea Party Sampler or the Metallics Sampler.
Last but not least, anyone crafting with vinyl NEEDS some strong Cricut transfer tape!
Transfer tape helps you transfer a vinyl design from the plastic sheet it is cut from onto another surface. Here is a more detailed tutorial on How to use Cricut Transfer Tape.
Project Ideas: Add labels to kitchen items like this fun ‘CARBS’ Bread Box, beautify your Pantry or organize your craft supplies like I did in my Under the Stairs Craft Closet!
I hope you have found some gift ideas or Cricut accessories that will work for you, or some things to put on your own wish list!
This is such a fun idea! Always looking for unique gift ideas and my mom would LOVE this!
I want a Cricut soooooo much. There are so many projects to be made with it!
I am putting these fabulous ideas on my gift list for my crafting friends! No more crappy gifts this year!
Love, love, love these ideas! Could always use more gift ideas!
OOOH! I want ALL the things! These are so fun! I love it! Going on my Christmas list! Especially the Easy Press!
