Keep Your Cool With These Last-Minute DIY Gifts

February 8th, 2022 by

You make a list. You check it twice. Somehow, the week of the holiday party still arrives with a whirlwind of forgotten names dancing through your mind. Worse, you could still be forgetting someone! Don’t panic. Instead, whip up a few — or a lot — of these DIY gifts to keep on hand for anyone who slipped your mind.

Gemstone Soaps

This is a pretty gift for anyone who may like a cute addition to their bathroom décor. Instead of elbowing through the aisles of a packed shopping mall just make a quick run to your favorite craft store and block off an hour or two to make these adorably unique gemstone soaps.

Personalized Gift Jars

This is perfect for a last-minute gift that actually seems personalized and well thought-out. Prepare a few large mason jars ahead of time with festive – but blank – name tags. Grab miniatures of soaps, lotions, candies, energy bars or anything else your friends and family might appreciate that can fit in a mason jar. Whenever you come across someone you’ve left off your list. Just toss together a personalized mason jar full of items they’ll love and pencil in their name.

Bag – or Tin – Full of Yummy

If you have a few foodies in your circle and a talent for baking put together a few food gifts to hand out. You can fill a bag full of decadent dessert items like chocolate fudge, homemade candies, sugar plums, or holiday cookies. You could also fill a tin or gift box with homemade pastries, cakes, breads, or chocolates. If you’d like to try this option, be sure to grab a big roll of parchment paper for to keep things from getting messy in transit.

Spend a few minutes thinking up some clever, inspirational, or funny quotes and then get started. Your friends will love them.
