The holidays are just around the corner and we're here to help you bring your 3D-printing A-game this year.

From toys and gadgets to decorative knickknacks for Grandma—these are the best 3D printed Christmas gifts for a fun holiday season. Grab your Santa hat, and warm up the printer, it's time for some seasonal projects that can be printed with any great budget 3D printer.

Fun holiday project

Here's an idea! Print out a few of the selected prints below and invite the family/kids over to paint them! They will be engaging in a super-fun DIY activity and be able to take something home with them for the holiday that is truly unique! (Just make sure to cat-proof your Christmas tree if you plan to hang these there!)

Paint or Print in Holiday color?

If you plan to 3D print any of these Xmas-themed gifts this year and turn them into a project, think about whether you want to paint them or simply print them pre-colored with filament. The latter is obviously easier, but painting your prints will make it a fun project for kids. Remember to lightly sand the finished project and even use a light primer to prep these to be painted. Paint with acrylic paint.
