12 Last minute DIY Gift Ideas!

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? If you haven’t, just remember there’s only 7 shopping days left! Eeek!  I got a good chunk of it done yesterday, but still have a few to check off. If you read my previous post, you’ll know that this year I tried to buy most of the gifts either locally, through Etsy or by making DIY Gifts.

One thing I realized by doing this, is I’ve avoided the craziness in the malls. That alone makes it worth it, because I never shop early enough to avoid it.  I ended up going to a cookware store on the weekend, not thinking how crazy it could be as I wasn’t shopping for anything Christmas related – oh my word! It was a mad house! Hmmm…..wonder where the term “mad house” comes from? Houses can’t be mad. Is it a bunch of mad people in a house? Anyhoo, I walked in, saw a line up of at least 40 people, turned around and walked out. I don’t need anything that badly!

Luckily, the only gifts I have left to do are a couple of last minute DIY gifts, so I won’t have to enter the madness again.  So, if you need any last minute DIY gift ideas, here are 12 of them!
