5 Last Minute Christmas gifts

Christmas is only 4 days away, which is a nightmare for people who haven't done their Christmas shopping yet! So here are some last minute presents that you can either make yourself or easily get online!
  • Gingerbread is a Christmas classic that can be made quickly and easily I will link a recipe HERE that is quick and easy to follow. All you need to do is ice then, then wrap them in tinfoil or cellophane and then put them in a cute Christmassy bag or box! 
  • Collect some pictures of you and the person you are giving the gift too, or pictures of them with other friends and family. Hole punch all the photos and then tie them together with some ribbon or string. You could even write little messages on the back of the photos.
  • If you really don't know what to get someone, get them a gift card! iTunes and Amazon ones are especially good for last minute as you can send them online through email, so if you don't have time to go and buy one, this means you will definitely have something for them in time for Christmas.
  • Another baking idea is to get a mason jar, or any other jar that you have cleaned out, and fill it with the dry ingredients for something you would think they'd like to make. This is a great gift for anyone who loves baking and will give them something fun to do on boxing day!
  • If it's a friend or sister that the gift is for, a great idea is friendship bracelets. All you need is string and a few beads, and there are plenty of amazing tutorials on youtube, which can make the bracelets look very impressive. This can be slightly time consuming, but I'm sure that they will be very much appreciated!
I hope that you found this post helpful, and remember that it's the thought that counts with many presents, so even if it's not an expensive gift, and you've made it yourself, it will mean a lot to whoever is receiving it! I personally love receiving homemade gifts, as I think that they really show that the person who made it cares, as they've obviously put time into making it for you.

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, as school has been busy, but it's the Christmas holidays now, so look forward to a lot more content!<3
