Finding the Perfect Gift for Him

I have been married to my hubby for over 15 years. Now, the gifts we tend to buy each other are “mutually beneficial” items needed around our home.

Dishwasher broke? Happy Birthday honey.

We need a new roof? Merry Christmas sweetheart.

Especially when we’ve been together so long it’s often hard to find a gift that’s nice and yet would let him know how much I appreciate him. This year, that’s where our Cricut Maker comes to the rescue!

With a limitless number of materials, tools and designs, the Cricut Maker truly is the ultimate personalization tool!

Over the past year we’ve enjoyed putting ours to use to create personalized Halloween trick or treat bags for my girls and personalized binders for back to school.

And now we have a whole collection of personalized DIY gifts for him ideas. The hardest part will be deciding which ones to make???
