Take a look at my list of Favorite Gift Ideas for the Glowforge User. Do you have a super crafty friend or family member that loves to create with their Glowforge machine? If you are looking for gift ideas and aren’t sure where to start, this list of gift ideas for Glowforge users is for you!
We love to create with our Glowforges. I use both the Glowforge Basic machine and Glowforge Pro laser cutting machines. So many of the accessories I use are geared towards both of these machines. If you don’t know which model of machine your gift recipient uses, Basic, Plus or Pro, many of my recommended gift ideas will work with any Glowforge machine.
Gift Ideas Glowforge Users will Love
If your Glowforge loving friend already has a Glowforge machine, they may only need extra materials and supplies. Or, if they’ve been drooling over the Pro model all year, wishing they had that model instead, then maybe Santa wants to surprise them with an upgrade to the Glowforge Pro!
Using the Glowforge for long sessions as well as when cutting some material like Acrylic, can leave unpleasant and unsafe air for you to breathe. Installing an inline ventilation fan to help pull the bad air out of your craft space can make a huge difference.
Never have I ever received a true 1/8" material sheet. This solves the variances from one manufacturer to the next in material and allows you to compensate in your designs. Absolute necessity for solving "Kerf" issues.
These are the design files that we can cut on the Glowforge. Either we design our own or we buy ready-made designs. Etsy has thousands of Glowforge cut files ready to go - in every topic or theme imaginable. Best to give an Etsy Gift Card and let your recipient pick the files they most need. $50 minimum value is recommended - files avg $5-10 each.
