Pinspirtation: Last-minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmastime has descended upon us. Here are some easy, last-minute gift ideas.

  1. “We Whisk you a Merry KISSmas.” You can fill a whisk with chocolate kisses and then add your own fun, home-made tag.
  2. 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.”
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
