Hello! Jenny from EverydayJenny.com here. If you are anything like me, life gets busy and you look at your calendar and realize you have a birthday, anniversary or some other special occasion coming up and you don’t have a gift. Or maybe you are just going to a dinner with friends and don’t want to show up empty-handed.
There are so many ways to make a gift in no time at all with your Cricut Explore. Small touches make your gift more thoughtful and special. Here is a list to get you started.

A bath bomb is a great gift for someone who needs some relaxation in his or her life (who doesn’t?) Either make your own bath bomb at home or buy one at the store, then add this cute free printable tag from the Frog Prince Paperie. Use the Cricut print and cut feature to cut them out. Voilà, a beautiful gift!

Fake and real succulents are all the rage right now. Grab one or two at your local store, and then put them in these cute diamond planters. Your friend will be so impressed you made your own planter!

Sharing a favorite recipe is always a fun gift idea. Print off these cute recipe card tags that are already done for you as a Make it Now Project in Design Space. Tie them around a mason jar filled with the recipe ingredients and you have an awesome gift.

A bottle of your favorite wine (or sparkling cider) is always a nice gift, but why not make it even better? Use your Cricut to make a personalized stencil and etch a design into the bottle for a special touch.
Which of these gift ideas is your favorite? Be sure to tell me in the comments below. And don’t forget to share the gifts you make on social media with #CricutMade. Happy Gifting!
