Make amazing, personalized gifts this season for your holiday shop.


Sometimes that perfect holiday gift isn’t something bought, its made. Whether you’re doing the making for a friend or a customer, we’re sure these popular items are bound to spark some ideas for your holiday shop.

That’s where Cricut comes in. A Cricut machine puts the power of professional-like customization and personalization in your hands. If you’re selling your creative goods (or want to), it may be what you need to set your shop apart.

Love to make, but not sure if you’re ready to start selling? Check out some of our Cricut maker stories, and read more about how others got started. You may be more ready to create your holiday shop than you think.

Gift inspiration for your holiday shop

Custom tumblers and mugs

Perfect for a beginner, but still fun for advanced crafters, custom tumblers are a great way to get started. Pick up some tumblers and permanent vinyl of your choice to complete this easy project. Try some holographic vinyl to add a little shine for the holidays.

Mugs are also a great way to go, especially if you have a Cricut Mug Press. This Dear Santa mug was made with Infusible Ink.

Specially-made glassware

This store-bought-with-a-special-touch look is a rising trend. Try making this beautiful glassware using Cricut-made stencils and etching cream. We like monograms, like the one pictured here, but this can be whatever you or your customers dream up — and cut with your Cricut machine.

Monogram jewelry

Speaking of monograms, clay earrings are another popular look — especially ones that have your customers initials. You can add other shapes and textures to these fun accessories, using molding made with the help of your Cricut machine. These Africa monogram earrings even use bits of vinyl (perfect for scrap material) to make the pattern you see on the “M.”

Unique doormats

What better way to express personality than at the front door? Give your holiday shoppers some fun options for custom doormats that let their home visitors know exactly where they’re standing. The best way that we’ve seen these doormats made is with Cricut-made stencils and some weather-resistant paint.

Personalized home decór

We’ve seen some beautiful projects made with handwritten notes and signatures. With your help, customers can turn in their special sentiments into pieces of art. This personalized baby blanket uses iron-on (HTV), but you can also try this with Infusible Ink on compatible materials.

Gift bags to remember

What better way to give a personal gift than with a personal gift bag? Don’t forget to add customizable gift bags to your holiday shop. Check out Design Space for some inspiration, like this beautiful display of dreidels shown here.
