Last Minute DIY Christmas Gift Ideas

Hey everyone! Sorry for being off the radar for a few weeks there.  Quick update on life since I last posted: my class finished, I got a cold and slept a lot, and I finished up almost all of my Christmas shopping.

I don’t know about you, but I love doing something personalized or homemade for Christmas gifts in addition to all the usual Christmas gifts.  I wanted to gather up a few ideas for anyone still scrambling to throw something together in this last week before Christmas.  Be sure to check out my idea board on Pinterest here.


I also wanted to share two of my favorite projects that I’ve made in years past.

Two years ago I made DIY bath salts.  I used regular epsom salt and mixed in a few drops of essential oils.  You can add food coloring too, but I figured it would be better without the added color.  I packaged them up in Christmas zip lock bags with a note saying to use a scoop to soak your feet or a few more for a relaxing bath.

The year before that I made mason jars filled with hot cocoa mix.  I also crocheted a little cozy to put around the mason jar and made these little tags to attach to the lids.


Did you DIY any Christmas gifts this year? What’s your favorite DIY gift to give or receive?  Have a wonderful last week before Christmas!
