Last Minute Gifts

19 Dec

We are down to the wire, Christmas is only 6 days away. I don’t know about you, but I find myself looking for something else to make this close to Christmas.  So I have put a list together of thoughtful gifts, easy to make, supplies found around the home or easy to purchase, and something I would like to receive.

Let’s start with spa gifts:

A great moisturizing cream from One Good Thing by Jillee.3Sugar scrubs are so easy to put together and wonderful for dry, flaky winter skin.  The one is from Oh So Pretty.sugarNow you could just give a jar of these wonderful things or put them in a basket with a candle and some chocolate or a pretty washcloth or scrubby and make it just a little extra special.

Let’s head to the sewing room:

This no-sew scarf couldn’t be simpler.  Most fabric stores have polar fleece on sale right now.  Just need a pattern and a sharp pair of scissors. This one is thanks to Cleverly Inspired. I would stitch around the outside of the scarf just to give it a little more detail.scarfLove this twisted scarf (headband) from Yours Truly, G.  This one has a video tutorial.img_8772The Purl Bee has the easiest felt coffee cozy. No more burnt fingers and easy to stash in the car or from the craft room stash:

These bracelets from Creating My Way to Success are quick and pretty.  I like the layered look.bracelet2If you know a young lady who likes Mickey Mouse I would think this would be a perfect gift for them, from A Creative Princess.GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERASo head out in the yard and start collecting a few twigs for these pretty twig candle holders from Freutcake. I like the gold and silver added to the twigs, a pretty ribbon or piece of twine would look nice too.DIY-Twig-Votive-Candle-Holders-1And for the fisherman in the family I really like these vintage lure key chains thanks to My So Called Crafty Life.lureI hope you get a few ideas from this post and have a very Merry Christmas!
