Uh Oh, It’s The Eve of Christmas Eve

The air is full of the scent of sugar cookies and pine from the Christmas tree. You’ve placed all your sentimental ornaments among it’s branches. The macaroni picture frame and the Hallmark Keepsakes are side by side. You look at the tree with pride but then, your eyes fall below the branches. Here is where the cold sweat sets in and you rush to the calender. Uh oh….it’s the EVE OF CHRISTMAS EVE. You still haven’t got the gifts for your coworkers, the extended cousins or that sweet lady who sits in the pew with you at church each Sunday. What are you going to do? Well, your trusty gift guider, Rebecca Rowell is here to rescue you with the aid of Pinterest.

Here are affordable, last minute Christmas gifts via the wonderful pages of Pinterest.

Christmas Pedicure Kit

What girl doesn’t love a little spa treatment? Hit the beauty aisles of the local Target or grocery store and fill your basket with the pedicure basics. Grab the nail filer, clear polish, etc and place it all in a mason jar. Take some Christmas paper and place it over the top of the jar with a festive bow and presto! You’ve got a DIY, precious gift for any of the women in your life.

Do you have that coworker or friend who is 90 percent water and 10 percent caffeine? For that person in your life that cannot live without that daily fix of coffee, make them a coffee treat bag. Fill a basket from the Dollar General with a pretty holiday mug, a bag of their favorite coffee and any other extras they love to place in the cup. They’ll love you for noticing what they enjoy and they’ll be pleasant the morning after the holidays.

Antique Store Run

Anyone you know have their house full of old treasures? For the antique lovers in your life, pop by a local antique store to browse. Most likely you’ll find some oldie but goody for that old soul in your life. Not only will you find an affordable gift that will become a treasure for the one you love, but you will also be supporting the community economy by shopping local.

Practical but wise….money or gift card.

While it is a cliche gift, it is a practical idea. Give a gift card or cash for the person to do their own shopping. This is a good idea if  this person is difficult to shop for because they are picky or you need a gift for someone you don’t know that well.

If you need some other ideas, hit up the Pinterest boards and see what else you can find. DIY gifts are always great for the creative one that adds a personal touch to your Christmas gifts. Remember too that it is the gift you cannot buy that mean the most. Spend time with loved ones making memories while turning off the electronics and leaving the office for a few hours. It will all pay off in the long run.

Merry Christmas!
