Glowforge Gift Guide: For Kiddos, Cats & Dogs, and the Whole Darn Family

Did you know? If you place your Glowforge order by November 30th, we’ll include six free limited-edition designs to print and gift! 

We want to help you get holiday ready the Glowforge way: with gift-giving inspiration from amazing Glowforge owners. First, we curated some amazing gifts that we think your favorite cooks, chefs and foodies will covet. 

And today, we are helping you out with goodies for the kiddos, fur-babies and the whole family. Be sure to check back in this week and next to check off everyone on your list! We’ll be rolling out selected gift guides for everyone in your life.  

1) A dreamy dollhouse with just the right (tiny) details

Can you imagine the look on your kid’s face when they open up a miniature version of their house, down to the very last detail of their bedroom furnishings and the pictures on their wall? Or maybe it’s a castle where they’ll finally reign as the queen or king.

When we saw the miniatures The Tiny Timber Co. made, we couldn’t help but squeeee!!  Everything is just so SMALL!

And the best part? With Glowforge, you can keep making new little details all year long as their hobbies, interests, and life changes – like adding in the bunk beds they just got, or the new baby’s crib, or a tiny violin as a reminder they should be practicing… 🙂 

2) One-of-kind puzzle for the curious kiddo

There’s no greater way to show a little how much you love them than by handcrafting a toy that’s made just for them. They’ll never want a store bought toy again! 

Maybe it’s a puzzle for the littlest of littles like the one above that Bitty Bean Designs created in homage to a favorite Pacific Northwest Park. Or, combine techniques by creating a complex jigsaw puzzle made from a favorite picture engraved on beautiful hardwood.

Just think, it might even be that toy that is handed down from generation to generation.

3) Artwork turned museum-ready masterpiece

Delight children and their parents alike by turning a child’s precious artwork into a lasting memory! Grab that favorite drawing that’s been showcased on the fridge for so long and turn it into an ornament that will last for years and years. 

Better yet – have your kid get hands-on with Glowforge to make a gift! Kids love to create with Glowforge – you can’t deny the look of thrill on Madison’s face above. 

4) A nameplate for the puppy young or old

A new puppy for the holidays! Maybe, maybe not. But either way, we know folks want to make sure their furry ones feel like part of the family and think this pet house sign does the trick. 

Whether you’ve got a grinning golden retriever like Lucy on your list, or perhaps pets with wings or fins, this idea is super simple to print with Glowforge. Takes less than five minutes and under five dollars. Seriously. 

5) Woof-worthy embellished leather collar

For the furry friend who is a rising Instagram star: help them strike a pose and be the bark of the park with a custom engraved leather collar. 

Homeward Goods realized the perfect use for their Glowforge is to print on leather and is giving us major inspo for the holidays with these custom collars. With Glowforge, you can craftily cut and engrave leather to give a gift both pup and parent will adore! 

6) Abolish boredom with a custom board game

What’s even better than a heated competition with those you love during the holidays? Being crowned the winner! Actually, we are a lot like Josh at PNW Made and love all sorts of games – competitive or not – and think it’s the perfect way to spend quality time with family. Paired best with hot cocoa and a warm fire. 

We are particularly in awe of this Scrabble board that Josh created, but of course you can customize any favorite family game. Like a Harry Potter themed Monopoly for the Hufflepuff. Or sprinkle a cribbage board with a baseball theme for your uncle who loves to watch the game while he plays. Truly, the possibilities are endless.

And whoever the lucky recipient is, they are guaranteed to be the winner when they show up at the next game night with a custom Glowforge-made game. 

We are also giving you a limited edition game design for free if you buy a Glowforge before November 30.
