I'm so glad I don't have to go out in that mess!
I do still have two more presents I need, but they are both homemade and I have everything I need to make them. When most people think of homemade presents, they usually think it would be a good idea to start them months ahead so you don't have so much to at the last minute. While that might be a good idea in theory, and even necessary for some presents, for some of us, with our super busy schedules, it just isn't possible.
Which leaves us with just a couple days until Christmas with more presents still to be made.
For those in the same boat as me, or worse, since maybe you don't even know what you are going to do, here are a few gift ideas that it isn't too late to make.
1. Melt and pour candles
2. Decorated candles
3. Soda pop jellies
4. Gift baskets or the like
5. Baked goods

Don't have time to do that much baking in the next couple days? Just give a dozen or so and include "coupons" for a batch a month or something, so they can enjoy their treats all year long and take some of the pressure off yourself at the same time.
6. Homemade cosmetics or spa items
DIY Herbal Spa: Learn how to make organic aromatherapy bath products at home. This also would be a great idea for a more-homemade-than-above gift basket.
There are lots of other things you can make at the last minute to the point that this post could get ridiculously long if I tried to list everything I can think of, so I'll limit myself to things I've actually done and then point you to my Pinterest boards. I have one specifically for upcycled gifts for adults and one for homemade gifts for kids, both of which have lots of great ideas and to which I'm always adding more things as I find them, but there are also great gift ideas in some of my other boards, including something I'm making for my mom for Christmas, but she actually reads my blog sometimes, so I can't say what!
Happy last minute crafting and merry Christmas!
