Eeeeek, Christmas is just around the corner! Are you as excited as I am? For those of you who aren’t like me (aka already have their presents wrapped since the beginning of December) I have the perfect last minute christmas gift DIY. This is incredibly easy, cheap, can be made in a few minutes and above all looks super cute and personal.
I’m not going to give you any super duper christmas cookie recipes because I didn’t bake much this year. Plus the cookies I did bake weren’t exactly what you’d call pretty. However, they’re tasty and that’s what matters – doesn’t it? But you can find all of the great recipes online… or just create one yourself, why always bake what others tell you!
What you’ll need for this easy peasy last minute christmas gift :
- Big Mason Jars (mine are from IKEA for 3€ each)
- Self made Christmas cookies
- Red Ribbon to make the bows
- Gift Tags
- Any additional decoration you want to add…
- such as: christmas ornaments, stickers, sharpie drawings on the glass, there are no limits to your creativity with this…
Basically all you’re gonna do is fill the Mason Jars with your cookies, decorate it with the ribbons and add a pretty gift tag. Didn’t I tell you that’s the easiest last minute christmas gift DIY ever? I prepared three of these glasses and will give them to my boyfriends grandparents and my grandma’s. I’m sure they’re gonna love it, as we usually don’t buy them huge gifts but I didn’t want them to be without at least a little something under the tree.
Oh and… you might have seen on the pictures that the jars aren’t full. Well, that’s because my boyfriend ate half of our cookies while I was at university and I didn’t have time/motivation to bake new ones. Guess I’ll just steal some of my moms cookies and add them to the jars so they appear fuller :P
And because the gift tags can make such a big difference with this last minute christmas gift DIY I decided to collect some freebies on the internet and share them with you guys! All you have to do is visit the linked pages below and print them out. It works best if you print them on thicker paper, however I didn’t have that and used normal plain paper. Works as well – just would look nicer with thick paper/cardboard.
