6 quick and cheap last minute gift ideas you can buy on Christmas Day.

6 quick and cheap last minute gift ideas you can buy on Christmas Day.

It’s finally Christmas. You’ve bought and wrapped all your presents after hours of shopping in stores and online. You’ve woken at 5am to watch the kids unwrap them and now you are prepping the Turkey for the 12 or so family members that will be on your door step in a matter of hours. Then you get a text: Can you make a place for Great Aunty Mildred, she has lots of gifts for the kids! Of course you have to say YES but what about a gift for her? You scour your home for anything you could wrap but come up short so the only option is to send your husband out to the Seven/Eleven to get something.

Here are a couple of last minute gift ideas that won’t cost a lot and you can pick up on Christmas day.

1. Infused Olive Oil. Why not get hubby to pick up a nice glass jar of olive oil and add some (washed) ingredients into the oil. Remove the label and add your own that you print out. Add another little tag to let the recipient know to leave in a cool place for 2-3 weeks before opening. What to add? Try chilli, basil or rosemary. Hopefully you can find something you are already using for Christmas lunch.

2. Lolly Jar. Everyone loves lollies. Search your pantry for something in a nice jar then remove the contents and give the jar a good wash. Ideally, pop it into the oven for 20 mins on low then allow to cool completely. In the mean time, get your husband to purchase several bags of loose lollies. Carefully tip them into the jar and make layers with the different styles of lollies. Fill it up to the top then pop on the lid and tie around some pretty Christmas ribbon.

3. Peppermint Bark. This is a super easy recipe for a very Christmassy chocolate that is sure to please everyone. Get your partner to buy 2 blocks of white chocolate and a 12 pack of candy canes. Hopefully you have some peppermint essence in the pantry. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or which ever way you normally melt chocolate). Once its melted, add a teaspoon of peppermint essence and mix through. Get the kids to crush all the candy canes and carefully mix through 2/3 of the candy cane. Get a baking tray and put on a sheet of baking paper. Spread the chocolate mix onto the slab then sprinkle remaining candy cane on top. Allow to cool and harden then cut into large chocolate chards and wrap in cellophane or into a pretty box.

4. Candle. Get someone to pick up a plain white candle then find your glue gun and stick on a few small jewels from the kids craft box. If the candle is in a glass jar, you could wrap it in ribbons or glue on some buttons from your sewing kit. If you have nothing to stick on the candle, grab 3 and tie them together with a big red ribbon. (Just make sure you don’t put anything that will catch fire near the flame)

5. Diary. If all you can find is a business diary or a school notebook, get wrapping. Find some pretty paper and wrap the outside to make it look nice. Team it with a pen for a great set.

6. Soap. As a last resort, raid your bathroom cupboard and find a couple of unused cakes of soap. Wrap them with some vintage fabric (check out old kids clothes or tea towels) and add some  tags and ribbon. At the very least, you’ll have something to give unexpected guests.

From all of us here at 17 Bright Ideas, have a very Merry Christmas and hopefully you will get some time to enjoy the day.
