1. Almost 40 Percent Off Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer
This mini printer is ideal for beginners, or for kids. It’s also nice for apartment living, where there may not be much room for specialized hobby equipment. This particular 3D printer works with both ABS and PLA filaments, as well as specialized materials like dissolvable PVA. This printer ships fully assembled, making it great for gifting. This printer is ready to go right out of the box, thanks to the included PLA filament, and a microSD card with preinstalled models.
If this 3D printer is still outside your price range, you could opt for a smaller application of the technology. Sunwing’s 3D printing pen is a fun way to experiment with 3D printing, without the complicated software of a “real” 3D printer. Do note, however, that this printer pen may not arrive until after Christmas.
Price: $189.99 (39 percent off MSRP)
