Last Minute Christmas Gifts

Only 2 more days until Christmas! Which to moms of many means one thing: only 3 more days until it's time to get started on gifts for Christmas 2013! Yay! :)

If you were relying on the world ending this past Friday to get you out of gift shopping/making, and now find yourself short a present or two, here are some simple, quick, but super impressive gifts to whip up at the last minute. 

I used this Wilton cookie pan, a gift from my mother-in-law

I'm not a coffee drinker myself, but these tasted simply fabulous.

Who know that just three ingredients could combine into the most tempting treat ever? Here, packaged in little gift bags with peppermint bark, are the white and dark chocolate varieties. 

These are scented with just eucalyptus, but of course the sky is the limit with essential oils. The boys tested some with lavender and eucalyptus and were instantly hooked. 

Three of my four suggestions are food based... hmm... but who's counting, right? :)


  1. Those are awesome, thanks! I am hooked on flavored creamers but hated the ingredients, and excused it because it's pretty much the worst "vice" I have left. I love the cookie pan - will have to get myself one. I've never heard of it before. I'd better get cooking! :) Merry Christmas to your family!

  2. Those aromatherapy discs are an awesome idea! I made some victorian rose ones for my mom. That is her favorite scent, and ready-made stuff in that scent is getting really hard to find in the bath & body sections these days.

  3. I have the flu and the shower disks sound like a life saver! I'm makin them right now:) thanks so much for this post. The creamers are next on my list to make.

  4. What wonderful ideas! I already have my christmas presents done for this year but will be saving this for next year. Thanks!

  5. Your oreo truffles turned out way better than mine. They tasted good though.
