  1. My last minute gift ideas are usually food related and I generally go store bought, but your posts are inspiring me to do homemade!! Specifically the Peppermint Hot Chocolate Pops and Pancake Mix in a Jar!! Yum!

  2. Thanks for sharing these last minute gift ideas. I too love making things fro neighbors and friends.

  3. Your pictures are awesome!! I like how you broke all this down and there were things I wouldn’t have thought about like a framed recipe? That is too neat, and it would be quick and easy and inexpensive! I will for sure bookmark this post for future reference !

  4. I usually just make gift baskets. :) Great ideas!

  5. Great ideas. I always seem to find someone that at the last minute realize I forgot to get gifts for!

  6. Great List! I think I’m going to make frozen cookie dough balls for my Grandma. She lives by herself, and a full dozen cookies would be too much for her. This way she can take one out of the freezer and bake one (or two) at a time! :)

  7. Wow– what a great list! I have several last minute gifts to buy so this helps! thank you !

  8. I like gift cards because then I can buy whatever I need with them!
