Did Christmas sneak up on you? Happens to the best of us! Try one (or all!) of these last minute Christmas ideas. You can do each of them in less than an hour.
When the holidays sneak up on you it can feel majorly panicky, right? But (in my opinion) panicking is the last thing you should be doing around the holidays! I want you to be able to feel joyful and relaxed in the joy of the season.
Last Minute Christmas Ideas
So that’s why I put together these last minute Christmas ideas! They’re each designed to help you with something that you may still need to tackle before the holiday — whether it’s gifts, baking, wrapping, or just spreading cheer.
Each idea takes an hour or less to complete, and you can find the supplies for all of them in your local craft or grocery store (no having to wait for any supplies to ship). Even better, you can probably make some of them with items you already have in your cabinets.
Check them out, and happy holidays! xoxo
