Practical Magic: Holiday Gift Guide

‘Tis the season of hot coco, snowflakes, candles, snowmen and absurdly early sunsets.  To keep your spirits up and offer a little gift inspo, here are a few of our very favorite wintertime 3D prints—submit a request by December 16th and have your prints in time for Christmas and Hanukkah!

Snowflake by jonmonaghan – The two slitted flakes fit together for a neat 3D ornament or window decoration.

The Snowflake Machine by mathgrrl – If you’re a little more math-minded (or want to talk tessellation with the kiddos) you can customize your own flakes.

Winter Woodland Cookie Cutters by pongo – Print one, print a few, get your woodland party on.  *Do note though, we print with PLA, which should definitely not be put in the dishwasher.

Menorahsaurus by moozicmon – Yes, it is a T-Rex menorah, need we say more?

Christmas Tree by kowomike – Print theirs or customize your own.

Vegetarian Wishbone by custom3dstuff – For the vegan/vegetarian on your gift list who likes to participate in weird family traditions.

Christmas Tree Lights by alzibiff – Print a few, pop in battery powered tea lights, enjoy.

Dancing Snowman Ornament by someandy – Get your groove on with this frosty friend.

Dreidel by zydac – I have a little dreidel / I made it out of PLA / When it’s printed and ready / Oh dreidel, I shall play!

Pine Cone by faberdasher – Sprinkle a few of these on the table to make your woodland cookies feel right at home.
