The winter holidays are almost upon us and it’s my favorite time of the year to gift handmade. Personalizing gifts with Cricut is easier using Infusible Ink, iron-on, Cricut Maker tools, and vinyl. I’ve searched the web to find 27 personalized handmade holiday gift ideas made with a Cricut from your favorite bloggers. Each project would make a great gift for someone on your list!

27 Personalize Handmade Holiday Gift Ideas with Cricut

I don’t know about you, but the main reason I gift handmade is to provide something extra special for the recipient. Nothing says special like personalization and customization, right? Personalizing gifts with the Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2 is easy and fun.

Like most crafters, I struggle with finding the time to make so many gifts for my friends and family every holiday season. I love that with my Cricut, I can add a personal touch to something store bought if I don’t have time to make a whole project. It so easy to make changes in Design Space that I don’t have to start an entire project from scratch if I want to make a similar project for several people on my handmade holiday gift list. I can just make minor changes and I’m ready to make!

For today’s roundup, I looked at personalized Cricut holiday projects from some of my favorite bloggers. These include gift ideas for sewists (of course), grandparents, toddlers and teens (and all the kids in between!), family members, friends, and more. They are made with a variety of materials including fabric and felt, leather and faux leather, paper, and more. Enjoy!
