If you feel like you don’t have time for DIY gifts, but you would love to make something hand-made for a family member that has everything, then I actually have an answer for you: these three super simple last-minute DIY gift ideas that each take less than 5 minutes to make!
Every year I try to make at least one simple DIY gift because we all like to receive mindful gifts right? But since I’m a busy working from home mom, well you won’t see me embedding anytime soon! Instead, I have made a simple coffee mug cozy, an all natural pink grapefruit sugar scrub, and a festive holiday chocolate bark!
First off, the coffee ( or tea) mug cozy: all you need is a pair of scissors, and an old sweater !
Simply cut out the sleeve, pull it on the mug, roll on top and wrap with a pretty festive string.
If you’re feeling extra crafty, you can cut out a ‘pocket” for a tea bag!
My second easy last-minute DIY gift idea is chocolate bark!
I’m, sure you have some leftover chocolate chips in your pantry – why won’t you put them in the good use? I do however suggest you using the best quality chocolate, since this is main ingredient. Melt it in batches, pour on the parchment paper, and top with whatever you have on hands!
- Here’s what I’ve used:milk chocolate chips
- dark chocolate chips
- white chocolate chips
- dulce de leche chips
- crushed candy cane
After pouring the chocolate on the parchment paper I’ve let my kids to take care of the rest – aka sprinkle half of toppings on the chocolate bark and eat half.
Once it’s all set and hardened simply pack it in festive christmas cookie cans and offer as a thoughtful gift!
And the last of my ultimate easy DIY gifts, is sugar scrub. I’ve been making them for year now, and they make for a great gift to any lady in your life!
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
- an essential oil ( I used grapefruit oil)
- couple of drops of beet juice for the pink colour
Mix it all together, and pack up in a metal tin or a mason jar.
And that’s it, your last minte DIY gifts are al done! Now you can sit down with a mug of hot chocolate and rest !
