Last Minute Christmas Gifts

It seems this year, more than any other, I am not prepared for Christmas. Usually my shopping was complete 2 weeks ago, gifts were wrapped and under the tree, and the house was filled with yummy smells!  Let’s be honest…I just finished this morning.

This year has been different.  I have just been too tired and the morning sickness is JUST starting to go away at 17 weeks. Let’s hope it keeps getting better! HA!

I just wanted to pop in and share the gifts that we are giving to our fabulous neighbors. Root “Deer” Float making baskets.  I saw this idea HERE.  I just decided to leave out the ice cream scoop and mug, then of course, make my own little tag. They make perfect last minute Christmas gifts!

I love how they turned out!

You can snag the tag HERE or by clicking the picture below!

Christmas gifts that are last minute don’t have to be boring! I hope you are enjoying your time away from school and get some much needed rest!

Merry Christmas!
