One of the best things about CO2 laser cutting/engraving machines is how versatile the equipment is – you can be making money by marking logos one minute and cutting parts for prototypes the next. For those who make a business using their laser, one of the underlying benefits of having this invaluable tool is that you’ll never be at a loss for the perfect gift – even if it’s last minute. Check out the easy and inexpensive products below that make perfect gifts and take just a few minutes to create!

1. Custom leather journals
This fun gift is great for aspiring writers or travelers wanting to document their latest adventure. It also makes a fantastic guestbook for weddings, or sketch book for budding artists! Leather engraves and cuts beautifully with the laser and results in a very rustic look.

2. Engraved rolling pins
Take cookies and pie crusts to the next level with custom rolling pins! Using the rotary attachment on inexpensive rolling pins allows you to customize all kinds of baked goods.

3. Personalized wine glasses
Whether you go stemless or the traditional route, wine glasses engrave beautifully and make great bridal party gifts or wedding shower favors.

4. Custom recipe cutting boards
Instead of a run-of-the-mill engraving, try laser etching a beloved recipe from a relative or family friend on a wooden cutting board. It makes a wonderful gift that can be shared and passed down among generations.

5. Slate cheese/charcuterie board
Functional and stylish, this charcuterie tray makes a great host or hostess gift for parties, or a thoughtful present for anyone who loves entertaining.

These five customizable gifts are just the tip of the iceberg. With a laser system from Epilog you can personalize all kinds of gifts all year long. Check out Epilog’s Sample Club to see all the projects above!

Laser engraved tile with contrasting fill works well.
