25 beautiful personalized gift ideas to make with your Cricut

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


Ever since I started using a Cricut back in 2017, a whole new world has opened up for handmade gift giving possibilities! Being able to cut iron-on, vinyl, paper, chipboard, fabric, and now Infusible Ink in all sorts of personalized shapes and letters is such a great way to customize a gift.

I have both the Maker and the Explore Air 2, and have used both to make lovely DIY gifts and decor for family and friends. (What’s the difference? Essentially, the Maker can cut everything the Explore Air 2 can, but it can also cut thicker or trickier materials like chipboard, thin wood, fabric, leather and felt.)

This year, I made this personalized Christmas Eve box for each of my girls, and it was so easy to personalize the t-shirts, mugs, and boxes used with my Cricut Explore Air 2. I used Infusible Ink to add a buffalo check monogram to the girls’ Christmas t-shirts (it’s SO cool how it sets right in to the fabric!), vinyl to make a monogram for hot chocolate mugs, and cardstock for a cute monogram label. I think it makes a gift extra special when it’s created to reflect its recipient, and adding special personal touches like monograms and names is a great way to do that.
