last minute gift ideas.

WHAT? There are only 4 days until Christmas?! 

Well if you are anything like me, you have bought some of your gifts, but lets be honest...you still have quite a few to buy. 

I'm sure some of you are in the same boat as me, so here are some ideas for gifts to get for your loved ones! 

1. Cookies. I always make cookies for last minute gifts, because, lets be honest. Who doesn't like cookies? 

2. Knit something. Don't know how to knit? Literally Youtube it. So easy. Make a cup coozie or a ear warming. Literally takes no time at all and it's handmade, and believe me, everyone appreciates something homemade! (I am planning on doing a post on teaching you guys how to knit, stay tuned!

3. Make a recipe basket. Have a yummy recipe you like to make? Well, head over to Walmart and get all of the ingredients and put them all cutely in a basket, tie a bow around it, and leave the recipe card. BOOM. DONE. 

4. Make your own coupon book. Have a mom who is overworked? Make a coupon book for her with coupons saying "Good for one free dish wash", "Good for one home cooked meal cooked by me", etc. A Boyfriend that deserves the best? "Good for one massage" "Your chance to pick the date" "Date's on me tonight." It's so cute, cheap, and so thoughtful! 

5. Make a homemade mug. Go out and buy yourself a plain mug, decorate it with a sharpie, bake it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, then you're done! You're left with a super cute gift that will be used all the time. 

What are your go-to last minute gifts?!
