Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas


Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas


With less than 10 shopping days left until Christmas, who wants to hit the shops and battle the crowds? Not us! 

We'd rather spend as much time as possible drinking eggnog and eating cookies in the glow of our Christmas tree!

We've put together a few unique last minute gift ideas to help you save time and check off the last few names on your list.



1. DIY Mason Jar Cocktail Kit 


If you’re looking for ideas for a super cute and personalized gift idea, try a DIY mason jar cocktail kit! From cider to margaritas and bloody marys, you can put together a cocktail (or mocktail!) for anyone on your list.

Throw together a kid-friendly version by putting juice drops or Kool-Aid mix in a tumbler with a reusable straw.

For added flair, print out some cute tags to tie on with string.

3. S'mores in a Jar


You've seen cookie mix in a jar, but have you ever seen s'mores in a jar? Super simple and fun, just fill jars with graham crackers, yummy chocolate, and marshmallows and you're all set to make some ooey gooey s'mores when the weather warms up!

Print up the recipe for skillet s'mores and the recipient can enjoy their toasted marshmallows right away! Hopefully they'll offer to share... ;)

4. Surprise Money in a Jar


If you're feeling all out of energy, a simple hidden money gift is always good for a laugh. And who doesn't love a little extra cash during the holiday season?

Place a toilet paper tube (or cut and roll up a piece of paper) inside a mason jar. Stuff the cash in the middle of the tube, and fill the space between the tube and the mason jar with a sweet treat like red and green M&M's.

The recipient will give a chuckle when they open the lid to find a little bonus hidden inside!
