Top 10 Best Cricut Products for the Creator
In no particular order. Really, they are all great and at different price points!
The Cricut Explore Air 2 is the ultimate! It can cut over 100 different materials – everything from cardstock, vinyl, and iron-on to felt and leather! The machine comes in several colors as well as some different bundles to get the most product for your buck.
They already have a Cricut Cutting Machine? Perfect! That means you know they already love Cricut products and are sure to love any of the items below!
Cricut Access is the bomb a wonderful companion to the Cricut Explore Air 2! Cricut Access provides instant unlimited access to over 100,000 images, 4,000 projects, and 400 fonts!
Plus they will receive 10% off any Cricut.com or Design Space purchases!
This is a subscription-based service. You can pay month by month, or for a discounted rate, pay for the whole year upfront!
Vinyl is a very popular material to cut on the Cricut cutting machines. Vinyl can be used on paper, walls, wood signs, glass, mirrors, car windows and so much more! Plus there are so many different styles and colors of vinyl to choose from! My latest favorite is the holographic vinyl.
Iron-on, or also known as heat transfer vinyl is also a very popular material to cut. Iron-on is great for clothing like shirts and hoodies, but can also be applied to hats, ceramic mugs, and wood!
While these little tools look like a Dentist’s pick, they are actually for weeding vinyl and iron-on materials! Those little hooks help grab the material and pull it away easily.
The BrightPad is similar in width to a tablet but with a larger working space. It is basically a flat light and is also is helpful in weeding materials. When iron-on or vinyl materials are laid on top of a lit BrightPad you can see the cut lines much more easily so you know where to remove the bits of material you don’t want in your design.
The BrightPad can also be used for art tracing, and I’ve also used it underneath my diamond paintings too! It is very handy.
The Cricut EasyPress 2 is a compact heat press. Have you seen those huge heat presses that take up an entire counter? The EasyPress is the same only lighter and doesn’t take up as much space. Plus it is less expensive than the larger ones and I think works even better!
The EasyPress is used to apply iron-on material, onto flat surfaces like clothing, or wood signs.
There are 3 different sizes depending on how much you want to spend or what types of projects it will get used on. There is a 6×7, 9×9, and 12×10. My favorite size is the middle 9×9 size.
The EasyPress Mini is a much smaller version of the EasyPress but I still included it in this gift guide because I use it in a lot of different ways. Since it so much smaller, the EasyPress Mini is great for sewing, ironing seams, and flattening out a ribbon. Although it is still great for small iron-on projects on hats or shoes where you need a smaller heating surface.
Cricut Pens are the best! I would think of them more as markers but whatever you call them they are great. The pens fit perfectly into the Cricut Explore Air 2 so the machine can draw for you, instead of cut, but they are also great to use for artwork and drawing by hand.
The colors are beautiful, and they come in different tip sizes and pen groupings. My favorite is the Ultimate Fine Point Pen Set that includes 30 pens!
The pieces in this bundle can be purchased separately but they each compliment each other so nicely that I don’t know why you would want too. In the Precision Cutting Kit Bundle, you’ll receive a grided self-healing mat, a stainless steel straightedge ruler, and the TrueControl Knife.
You can’t go wrong with any of these gifts for your creative friend. You are going to be winning at gift giving!
