If you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift that you can whip together for neighbors or friends, these ideas might be the ticket for you!
Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas
First up is a Caroling Kit. Start with a copy of all of your favorite Christmas songs on card stock, add a bag of hot chocolate, and some lights (I found these 2 for a dollar at Dollartree). Throw in some candy canes and you have a bag o' fun! To deliver, take your family and sing at the door! The tag could say "We WISSSHHH you a Merry Christmas!"
Next, get a can of good hot chocolate, like Stephens, and pair it with some marshmallows or chocolate dipped pretzel sticks. The card could say "Wishing You Warm Chocolatey Christmas Wishes!"
One of my favorite gifts I put together (if I do say so myself) was a good sized Chinese take out box with fortune cookies in it. Both items I found at a restaurant supply grocery store called Cash & Carry. The boxes are reasonably priced (they come in a pack of 25) and the cookies come in a large bag for around 5 bucks! Can't beat that! The tag read "It is our good fortune to have you as friends! Merry Christmas!"
Whatever you do, make it thoughful, fun, and easy! With a splash of colorful ribbon and a sweet card you will, no doubt, hit a home run! That is what I like to do! Good luck and Merry Christmas!
What are some of your best neighbor/friend gifts you have whipped together?
