Christmas is quickly approaching, and many of us are still struggling to get those last minute gifts. While some may turn to gift cards or the ever popular Christmas sweater, those who own a 3D printer can give something that’s a little more personal.

Dan Toth recently uploaded a new video called “A Very 3D Printed Christmas” that looks into the kinds of gifts you can make your loved ones with a 3D printer. Even better, the gifts you make them via 3D printing will have the kind of personal touch that homemade crafts do. You can even take a design from Thingiverse and add your own twist to it for an even more personal feel.

Here are some ideas for a last minute Christmas gift:

If you’re looking for even more Christmas gift ideas, check out the Thingiverse Christmas page. There are over 1,000 designs to choose from. Some of my favorites include a parametric Christmas tree ornament and a Christmas tree monorail.
