Cricut Gift Guide: Gifts for the Cricut Expert

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.


It’s time to start thinking about shopping and gift guides for this year! This Cricut gift guide is full of Gifts for the Cricut Expert that you didn’t know you’d love.

So whether you’re the one shopping, or you’re the one building a wish list, I hope you’ll find some hidden gems in here.

I’m going to assume the person you are buying for (and if that’s you, that’s great!) already has a Cricut Explore or Maker. But if not, let’s make that the first thing on our guide.


Cricut Maker  

Cricut Maker Champagne

The Cricut Maker is always what I will recommend if it’s in your budget, and if you think you’ll ever want to cut any fabric, crepe paper, or felt. The rotary blade does such an amazing job with those materials! 

Plus there’s the addition of the Knife Blade, Scoring Wheel, Perforation Blade, Engraving Tool, Debossing Tip and Wavy Blade. And the capacity for more tools using the Adaptive Tool System of the Maker.

You’ll find other good information here in this Maker vs Explore post.

EasyPress Mini

I was surprised to love the Cricut EasyPress Mini as much as I do! I have the original size and the small size EasyPress. They work great for t-shirts, socks, leggings, bibs, etc. 

But the EasyPress Mini makes small projects so much easier! I have used it to add iron-on vinyl to shirt sleeves and to felt pumpkins. It heats up very quickly. 

Because it is so lightweight, it is comforable to hold and easy to move, making it perfect for awkwardly shaped items. And the pointed tip makes it great for getting up against seams or really small areas.

Cricut Access 

What is Cricut Access

There are over 100,000 images now in Cricut Design Space! When I first wrote this post all about What is Cricut Access? there were only 40,000. So it’s always growing!

Perforation blade

Even if you don’t consider yourself a card maker, you’ll want to try some of the pull tab cards you can make with the perforation blade. Make tear-away tickets or coupon books. Pull tabs can reveal messages or even money! Here’s an example of a perforation blade card I made recently.

EasyPress mat

Do you need an easy press mat

If you’ve been just getting by with a folded towel, an upgrade to an EasyPress mat will make you very happy. No bumps, moisture protection and it can even be rolled up to fit inside a bag or sleeve.

Mosaic iron-on

Printable vinyl

How to use printable vinyl

I love making my own stickers with Cricut and printable viny is my favorite material for printing on. It isn’t stiff, it peels easily, and it doesn’t get stuck in my printer.

Precision Cutting Bundle

The TruControl blade is so handy to have in the craft room! The metal ruler with safety guide protects your fingers against accidental cuts and the mat protects your work surface. I use it for a lot of non-Cricut projects too.

Multi Set of Black Pens

Cricut calligraphy pensYou can never go wrong with standard black with writing with the Cricut pens. What’s great about this set is that you can never go wrong with standard black when writing with Cricut pens. Plus, this set also has a black glitter gel pen and two calligraphy pens. I love using the Cricut calligraphy pens when writing one of the script fonts.

Infusible ink transfer sheets

  Cricut infusible ink patternsYou’ll need to use these in combination with their shirts or coasters. (Infusible Ink is not for 100% cotton – even if it transfers, it will wash out.)

There are some new patterns that have been added to the options they originally released. Like these distressed blues or galaxy patterns.

I think the coasters are actually a lot of fun. You can customize them for gifts, the colors are bright and vibrant, and you can make several of them quickly because they are a smaller project.
