This is the year to do right by dad by gifting him something besides socks, ties, or a gift card- not that there’s anything wrong with those 😉 Think outside the box and help dad get in touch with his creative side. He doesn’t have to be an experienced crafter to appreciate and enjoy these gifts.
You’re bound to find something - from our premium cutting machines to more budget-friendly tools and accessories- that will hit it out of the park with dad.
1. Cricut ExploreⓇ family
If you want to help dad get his creativity flowing in a simple way, consider one of the machines from the Cricut Explore family of machines. The different models of Cricut Explore machines intricately cut up to a hundred materials including favorites for beginner crafters like cardstock, vinyl, and iron-on. With these materials, you can create amazing cards, decals, stencils and embellished fashion like t-shirts. Cricut Explore Air™ 2, the newest machine in the lineup, cuts up 2x faster than any other Explore family machine.
So, if dad is more of a beginner but is also looking for speed in his crafting, this is the machine for him. Plus, there are sure to be colors of the Cricut Explore Air 2 that dad can be happy about.
