20 Incredible Print Ideas for Presents

3D printing has gotten quite the recognition over the years, and it’s great for customized, one-of-a-kind gifts. This year, rather than wrapping your store-bought presents, you can print out any of the fun 3D printables that we’ve listed in this article.

Ready to get started? Here are 20 cool things to 3D print for presents in all seasons.

1.    Hanging Flower Pot

With more apartments becoming increasingly wanting for space, finding a spot where you can grow flowers and vegetables in apartments becomes difficult. A hanging flowerpot is a brilliant idea to gift your friends who need a little corner to display or cultivate live plants.

Hanging flower pots are not expensive, especially to 3D print them. They’re quite versatile, especially for hanging plants that beautify your space and serve as a source of oxygen. Plants also actively help to decrease the level of pollutants in the air.

To print a 3D flower pot, simply choose your preferred color and material for your 3D filaments. With your 3D printer, you no longer need to make holes with your drill to hang up the flower pots; they will already be included during the printing. Once it’s printed, hang your strings, ribbons, or chains, and voila!

With the 3D printer, you can also create unique flower pot models that you typically won’t find on the market.

2.   A Bow Tie for Men and Women

A bow tie is a rather mindful gift for the men and women around you. This gift choice combines modernity and style with safety. This result is as elegant as it is original. Here we compared a wooden and plastic model since it’s possible to print with wooden PLA filament.

There are several wood models available depending on the type you want. Wood is a material that immediately brings elegance to your printed bow tie design.

3.   Jewelry

Thanks to 3D printing, you can offer unique gifts to your loved ones that you won’t find in stores! You don’t need to know anything about jewelry to craft unique jewelry presents. 3D printers can make even the tiniest bracelet, ring, earrings, and more.

You can design it the way you want, making it as personalized as possible for those you love.

4.   Miniature Christmas Tree


3D Christmas trees are unique Christmas gift ideas. If whoever you plan to give doesn’t have time, money, energy, or space for an actual Christmas tree, this miniature Christmas tree comes in handy. It looks great on a work desk, dorm room desk, entryway side table, coffee table, nightstand, and more.

5.   Spinning Christmas Star

This rotating star decoration will also make a delightful Christmas gift idea. You can mount it on top of a Christmas tree or hang it on your tree’s branches. Its three concentric stars spin independently of the others, making it an interesting sight and a great conversation starter.

Print in high-quality material for maximum impact.

7. Amplifier for iPhone

In place of giving a very expensive Christmas gift such as an iPhone speaker, you can give a 3D amplifier. 3D printing an amplifier allows you to combine aesthetics and performance in a single product.

There are many amplifier models designed for all types of phones (Apple, Samsung, Huawei, etc.) like the one above. Choose the color and material of your 3D filament depending on the rendering you want.

This delightful mechanical watch is a lovely present idea. It won first prize in the PrusaPrinters Timekeeper challenge, and not surprisingly. Never mind that it looks like a complex model; it is easy to construct if you have a little patience.

The clock estimates 60 x 42 cm (23 x 16 inches). It's crafted completely by printing, so you need not bother about any additional parts besides some paste, weight, and string.

10.   A Candle Stand

The candle stand is a somewhat forgotten decorative object that’s slowly coming back in fashion.

There are numerous 3D candle stand designs to print, like the one we’ve shared here.

Funko of the recently completed Spanish Netflix series La Casa de Papel will surprise anyone. It is a small toy similar to the famous Funkos dressed in a red jumpsuit and the Dali mask used in the series.
