Cricut has a wide range of Christmas cartridges available to buy- some pretty superfluous if you ask me and some an excellent choice to add to your collection. See below my thoughts on what I think are the Best Cricut Cartridges, I based my rating on a variety of images, versatility and longevity… basically what is the most bang for your buck.

What are Best Cricut Christmas Cartridges?
Winter Woodlandis actually one of my favourites, Very sophisticated “pretty” designs, The designs work equally well with cards or scrapbook pages. A nice mix of winter and Christmas images and sayings. AND you also get alphabet and 3-d village shapes. I highly recommend. The price at around 20.00 is why I give it a 9/10
Trim the Tree is a bit out there.. think they were stretching things a bit. Lots of intricate filigree work here.. some of it downright ugly. Pass. 4/10
Christmas Cheer has nice solid designs that you will get plenty of use from. Basic Christmas shapes. 7/10
This is one of my favorites and I would consider this a must have for Christmas card making. The card shapes- as well as envelope designs can be used year round. 8/10
Joys of the Season Focuses heavily on 12 days of Christmas as well as some classic winter/Christmas images like snowflakes, Santa, Christmas trees, gifts, etc, This is pretty good and I give it 7/10
Winter Frolics is mostly folk art images of children and people. This would be okay if you were teacher.. kids will love it. For the scrapbooking or cards a limited look. 6/10
Cricut Solutions Cartridge- Christmas is older and hard to find. It has really good basic Christmas and winter shapes and if you could only have one Cricut Christmas cartridge this is a good bet. Has usual holly berries, Santa designs, gingerbread, etc. The images would be excellent for scrapbooks, cards and vinyl wall art. 8/10.
Winter Lace Let it Snow Let it Snow, let it snow… this a cartridge of all snowflakes. say no more. Hard to rate.. but for over all usefulness unless you are a weatherman… 3/10.
This cartridge is actually inspiring me to make a “Worst Cricut Cartridges List..”
Christmas Cheer is very popular. Has all the classic Christmas images in traditional very usable styles, Christmas bulb, tree, snowmen, ornaments, gift tags. This I would also say if you could only get one… A perfect compliment to Christmas Cards (see above) 8/10
Gingerbread Mark me down as a NO. BUT you might be able to get pretty cheap- like around 10.00. The whole cartridge is gingerbread shapes. Maybe if you were trying to attract Hansel and Gretal to your home otherwise PASS. 3/10
Speaking of Winter features a very nice “icicle” font perfect for school bulletin boards. Lots of Christmas and Winter shapes ( snowmen, scarves, etc) a good solid bet. 8/10
