It’s Never Too Late
I know, I know, you haven’t completed your shopping and Christmas is the day after tomorrow. I get to say, “I know” because I really do. I’m a Sidetracked Home Executive and in case you don’t know, we SHEs are procrastinators.
So calm down and breathe. Everything’s going to be just fine. Get a pen and paper, sit down with your favorite beverage and think. Your creativity is one of your special gifts and that super mind of yours just waits for times like this to come to your rescue. Knock and it will answer.
Here are just a few of the last-minute ideas I’ve come up with over the years.
- Give gifts from your kitchen.
Since I love to cook and I make all my salad dressings from scratch, I’ve often given the dry ingredients along with the instructions to add olive oil and vinegar (you can provide those too, but let the recipient shake them together later for a fresher gift). I save glass jars and quart jars are the perfect size for the recipient to ad the oil and vinegar to the dry ingredients. You can also use those wine vinegar bottles for the oil and vinegar and put the dry ingredients into one of those cute little jars that sample jellies and honey come in when you have room service at a hotel.
Gifts from your kitchen are always welcomed. See what you can whip up to give.
