While Christmas time is prime gift-giving time, it never hurts to have some gift ideas in your back pocket. You never know when you might forget a birthday or special event & need to make a gift in a hurry.
That’s where your Silhouette or Cricut comes in handy! You can make a great gift quickly for just about anyone—your next door neighbor, mailman or your cousin!
The recipient will love it because it is so personalized and you will love it because it was simple and cheap!
Here are just a few ideas to get your creativity going and make you a gift-giving superstar this holiday season!
Start by thinking about what the person loves. Are they a huge coffee drinker who also LOVES football? Put their favorite team’s logo on a coffee cup or Yeti travel mug. Maybe add a cute saying or their name.
You can monogram or personalize just about any item. Coffee cups, Tervis tumblers, wine glasses, picture frames are all popular choices.
Ornaments are a simple, timeless gift. Craft stores have lots of blank ornaments this time of year, usually in bulk. You can make an ornament for just about any occasion: Baby’s 1st Christmas, Our First Home, Graduation, Retirement, etc. You can put colored paper inside to add a little color.
Are they a big cook or baker? Personalize a cake carrier or make a display plate for their kitchen with a cute or funny saying (“Whip it” or “Just Roll with It”). Maybe a custom sign for their countertop with their family name or a menu board.
Personalize a candle or candle holder with a holiday design or favorite saying. You can also personalize it with a date (such as an anniversary or birthday).
Are they a big gardener? Put the names of herbs on a few small pots or a window box. You can also add something to a cute watering can or make a cute sign to put in the entrance of their garden. You can also put vinyl on a flower vase.
Add personalization or a quote to any picture frame.
Removable Vinyl can be used on walls. Plot out some cool graphics for a kids room. You can also create a cute saying to put on a gallery wall of pictures.
Make a decal that they can put on their laptop or cell phone case
Make a gift basket using a cheap tub or bucket from the dollar store and fill it with various items. You can personalize the bucket.
Do they like to entertain a lot? Make a personalized serving tray or platter.
If they have a dog, you can make a doggie treat holder using a simple container with their dog’s name on it.
