The holidays are approaching which means it is time to start thinking about our holiday gift shopping. I enjoy shopping for gifts but can not stand the crowds that begin after Thanksgiving. That is why I start shopping little by little early on. It also gives me time to choose the perfect gift for my recipient. In order to help me choose a good gift I tend to go online and look at gift guides. That brings me to today’s post which is a Cricut Gift Guide for the Customizing Crafter. I personally love customizing just about anything so everything in this Cricut gift guide is stuff I love and use often.

Let’s start with the piece of resistance the Cricut Maker. I personally have the Cricut Explore Air 2 as well as the Maker. I use both machines often and they both sit on my craft table. But I chose to add the Maker to my Cricut gift guide because it can cut so many more different materials than the Explore Air 2.
The next Cricut item I can not be without is my Cricut Access. Having Cricut Access gives you the access to so many but I mean so many images. Please note that licensed images are not included in the Cricut Access. Those require an additional purchase.
If you love customizing shirts like I do then you need a Cricut EasyPress 2. The 9×9 size is a perfect size to use for many different projects. Project customizing examples: shirts, cloth napkins, and signs to name a few.
Of course, if you are going to be customizing things with the Cricut EasyPress 2 then you will need Everyday Iron-on.
Adhesive vinyl is another great material to use when customizing things. I have used this for customizing candles, school notebooks, storage bins, and many other things.
The Cricut Infusible Ink is perfect for customizing shirts or even canvas/cloth shoes. The fabulous thing about this product is that it infuses to the item and can last wash after wash without peeling off.
My love of crafting started with paper. So Cricut cardstock will be something I always have on hand. It can be used in so many ways. Placemats, place cards, greeting cards, scrapbooking, party decorations, and so much more.
To make your customizing craft journey more easier I would strongly suggest this basic tool set. It has everything you need to help with vinyl and paper crafting.
Basswood is a material that can only used used with the Cricut Maker. This is perfect for making ornaments to put up on your tree. But as you can see from the packaging you can use it to create amazing room decor.
