Christmastime has descended upon us. Here are some easy, last-minute gift ideas.
- “We Whisk you a Merry KISSmas.” You can fill a whisk with chocolate kisses and then add your own fun, home-made tag.
- Here is an idea for a big kid for whom you don’t know what to buy. You can tie ribbons around money and write “Gingerbread men with yummy icing are oh so good and enticing. I set out to make you a dozen or two, but time ran out, so now what to do. So instead of cookies, I tied with a bow, your own personal serving of holiday dough.”
- You can make a snowman marshmallow ornament. Taking a clear Christmas ball ornament, fill it with marshmallows and paint a snowman’s face on the outside.
- You can make Christmas peppermint cocoa in a jar. For this recipe, you’ll fill a jar with one-half cup of milk chocolate hot cocoa mix, two tablespoons of crushed mints, one ounce of chopped semi-sweet chocolate and one-half cup of mini marshmallows. You’ll layer the ingredients in a one-and-one-half cup jar.
- You can bake brownies or cookies in Christmas cookie cutters. Then, you can decorate and give them away as Christmas gifts.
- You can wrap up a roll of change. (This would also make for an easy stocking stuffer).
- You can take a pair of mittens and fill them with pine branches. This could be a simple home accent for any friend or family member around the holidays.
- You can take an empty wine bottle and fill it with a strand of Christmas lights. Then, you can add your own festive touch when decorating the outside of the bottle.
- You can take a clear Christmas ball ornament and fill it with one packet of hot cocoa. Then, add chopped up candy cane, chocolate chips and festive Christmas sprinkles.
- 10. You can make your friend or family member a Christmas morning breakfast basket. You can include goodies, such as home-made breads, muffins, etc. with some jam and a package of coffee.
