Last Minute Holiday Madness!

The holidays can be a crazy time. There is so much to do and so little time. Next thing you know Christmas is a week and 2 days away... Eek! (I better stop blogging and get to shopping!) But before I let my own holiday last minute madness take over, I've got you covered if you find yourself in a holiday time crunch. Scrambling to find a present, make a treat, or just need some ideas - here's a list of holiday helpers that will make you look like you've been planning for Christmas all year.

For your holiday potluck that you forgot about until 10pm the night before:

Candy Cane Crinkle Cookies - they are festive, delicious, and only take about 30 minutes to make.

For when you find yourself wrapping a present 10 minutes before heading out to the holiday gift exchange and you find yourself out of gift tags:

Printable Holiday Gift Tags - all you need is some cardstock and a printer to have the cutest gift tags on the block with this pdf from Love vs. Design.

For when you are putting up your tree the day before Christmas and you realize you don't have enough ornaments and all the stores are sold out of everything but the tacky ones:

DIY Glitter Ornaments - granted you do need glitter and clear ornaments, so this may take a little more planning than I originally led you to believe... but aren't they awesome?

For when you realize you have more people on your shopping list than the number of gifts you bought:

Homemade Sugar Scrub - this stuff goes for like $10 or more in a store but it's super easy to make! And it's  much more personal gift if you make it yourself.
If you want to get fancy, make this Chocolate Mint Sugar Scrub - especially suited for the holidays.

Hope your holidays are lovely and stress free!

Peace, love, happy holidays, and happiness!


  1. Oh yum that sugar scrub looks so good! I love to make a simple honey and sugar scrub to use on my lips!
