Mother's Day Gift Guide
Mother's Day is on May 10th this year! Even though it's three months away, it's still the perfect time to start thinking about what you want to get mom this year as a gift! If your mom is the crafty type, you've come to the right place. We've got a ton of different ideas for crafters of every kind— we have 25 listed, so there's something for everyone!
Last, but not least, is the newest die-cutting machine to the Cricut family, the Cricut Joy! If your mom could use a die-cutting machine to make labels, cards or small projects, then the Cricut Joy would be a perfect gift. It's lightweight, portable and makes crafting a breeze! Learn more about the Cricut Joy by clicking here and shop our collection of Joy products here.
Has your mom been eyeing a die-cutting machine lately? If so, you may want to consider the Cricut Maker. This is known as the Ultimate Smart Cutting Machine of die-cutting machines. Not only can it cut through your everyday materials like paper or vinyl, but it can also cut heavier materials like basswood, leather, and it can also cut fabric! It also has an expansive suite of blades that are specific only to the Cricut Maker, such as the Knife Blade, Rotary Blade, Engraving Tip and more. There's a lot packed into this machine! We love the idea of getting her a bundle like this one because then she can crafting right away!
Does your mom enjoy scrapbooking? If so, we cannot recommend the Scrap-n Easel enough! The Scrap-n Easel allows you to work across two 12x12 inch surfaces with removable grid lines. It also comes with 16 magnets to hold your project in place! It was designed ergonomically to take away the aches and pains often associated with leaning uncomfortably over your project.
If you're looking for a more budget-friendly (but still super awesome) die-cutting machine, then the Air 2 could be perfect for your mama. The Air 2 can cut over 100 different materials— iron-on, vinyl, Infusible Ink, paper, and tons more! It can't cut as thick of materials as the Maker, but if your mom doesn't primarily craft with heavy materials, then she probably doesn't need the Maker anyway. For a full side-by-side comparison of the Air 2 and the Maker, check out our video here.
5. Bob Ross Master Paint Set
We all know and love Bob Ross, so this would be the perfect gift for any paint-lover— beginner or professional! This set contains everything you'd need to paint like Bob Ross, from paint to brushes and everything in between.
The EasyPress Mini is a newer product to the Cricut family. This little press allows you to create heat-transfer projects that may be small or unusually shaped. You can easily curve with contours, get between buttons and even squeeze into seams. It's lightweight, portable and easy to use. If your mom loves to make heat transfer projects, she will love the EasyPress Mini!
If your mom is a Cricut crafter and doesn't have an EasyPress in her craft room yet, I can't recommend an EasyPress enough! We just talked about the EasyPress Mini, which is great for tiny and odd-shaped projects. However, if your mom likes to make a lot of t-shirts, tea towels or other heat-transfer projects that are larger, than you'll want to snag her an EasyPress. This bundle is a great option for your mom because it comes with iron-on vinyl so she can get crafting right away!
