Mother's Day Cricut Gift Guide
Whether you need a gift for your own mother, the mother of your children, a single mother with young children, or any other special mother you know, the following are great gift ideas if she happens to be a crafter, or even if she dreams of being one. There are products and bundles with different price ranges, but all can be used for Cricut crafts. Check them out, and you may just find the perfect gift that will be appreciated for years to come.
Does the mother in your life love to craft with a wide variety of materials? If so, the Cricut Maker would be the ultimate gift for her. This die-cutting machine cuts fabric, felt, matboard and leather in addition to vinyl, iron-on and all types of paper. She can create her own designs or use existing designs to make unique creations, including T-shirts, mugs and too many others to mention. This versatile machine is a game changer. You would definitely make points with a gift like this. This popular bundle includes a tool kit, a pen set, vinyl sheets, heat transfer vinyl and transfer paper, so she can get started right away.
The Explore Air 2 can cut a wide variety of materials for use in making craft projects, such as personalized T-shirts, decals, drinkware, home decor, labels, greeting cards, hats, signs, and so much more. Help your mother take her crafting to the next level by gifting her with one of these. She will thank you for it.
If Mom has a Cricut machine she uses to create custom T-shirts or other projects with iron-on vinyl, she should have an Easy Press. It is so much better than a regular household iron, as the entire 9 x 9-inch surface provides heat instead of just having one hot spot in the center. It has a built in heat setting and a timer to make things easy. This could save her a lot of time.
Now your mother can make her own personalized ceramic mugs using infusible ink without turning on the oven. This machine heats each mug and applies a permanent design of her own choosing, creating a professional looking product. She could create a whole set of mugs for herself or make an endless supply of gifts for others. Maybe she would even make one for you!
For the mother who already has a Cricut Maker with a variety of blades and tips, or even one just starting out, this is the perfect gift to help her organize her supplies. All her blades can be in one place for easy access, and she can see at a glance where everything is. This bundle even includes some popular QuickSwap Tips and Housings to add to her collection.
Here is a miniature heat press for those small projects that are difficult to apply heat to. Maybe the mother you know likes to decorate hats, baby onesies or bibs, shoes, or other small items with awkward shapes or intricate designs. This mini press has only three heat settings and is super easy to use, not to mention taking up very little space. The bundle also comes with some glitter iron-on vinyl to start her out with. This just might be the best gift she didn’t know she needed.
Help ease Mom’s sore neck and back with one of these ergonomic work surfaces. She won’t have to lean over anymore to focus on her projects. This works especially well for scrapbooking. It includes grid lines, magnets to hold her work in place, and a magnetic ruler. The double surface will allow her to work on two pages at a time. When not in use, it folds down for portability. A gift like this would not only make her projects easier but would provide a physical benefit as well. What could be better?
Whether your mother is a new Cricut user or a veteran, these supplies will come in handy. She will always use mats, as they can wear out over time. A variety of pens in different colors and sizes are great to have on hand to switch up her projects and make each one unique. The pens can be used with either a Maker or an Explore Air 2. The essential tools will be used with every project. It never hurts to have extras in case any of them get misplaced.
Here is a great bundle to use with the Cricut Joy. It includes a Standard Grip mat, a tool set, a pen set, a replacement blade and transfer tape. This would be a great companion to a new Joy machine, but a current Joy owner could find it useful as well.
Do you know a mother who personalizes and customizes everything she can get her hands on with her Cricut machine? If so, she probably goes through quite a bit of vinyl in the process. Keep her happily labeling things with this supply of permanent vinyl in six rainbow colors. If she is just starting out, she will appreciate having a good start to her vinyl collection. This vinyl can be used with any Cricut die-cutting machine.
Here is another rainbow vinyl bundle. This one is made specifically for the Cricut Joy Smart Machine. It includes five colors of vinyl and a roll of transfer tape. The unique thing about this vinyl is that you don’t need a mat to cut this on a Joy. Just insert it and away you go. It makes for faster projects, so more of them can be done in the time available with little prep. I don’t know of any busy mother who would not appreciate that.
This packet of multi-colored pens is a great value. With so many colors to choose from, your mother can make each project unique and satisfy her love of colors. Whether she has a Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2, she can use these pens for her Cricut crafts. The hard part will be choosing which color to use, but I’m sure she is up for that challenge. This bundle also includes an XL scraper, which works great for larger projects or for cleaning cutting mats.
Whether Mom already has the new Mug Press or you are gifting her with one, she will always need blank mugs to use for her projects. These sublimation mugs are made specifically for use with infusible ink and the Mug Press. There are also 15-ounce mugs available that will fit in the press. Keep her busy creating personalized and professional grade mugs for anyone and everyone she knows, including herself and maybe even you.
Keep your mother stocked with card-making supplies to use with her Cricut Joy Smart Machine with this bundle. These consumables can go fast when she’s working steadily on her cards. You can ensure she doesn’t run out of insert cards and envelopes for her projects. There is a variety of colors included along with a set of glitter gel pens. Have you ever been a recipient of one of her handcrafted cards? They are often more meaningful and appreciated than store bought cards.
