Last Minute Christmas Pinspiration Gifts

Last year, I was on the DIY snow globe bandwagon and this year I jumped on the Starbuck’s bottle bandwagon.  There are millions of ways to reuse this adorable little bottles.  I just love ‘em!  For this project, I just wrapped the box in holiday paper, trimmed it out in washi tape and made labels for the caps.


Inside the bottles…

  • Elf Kisses – Hershey Kisses
  • Snowballs – mini marshmallows
  • Green & red candy corn – was going to label this mini trees, but used a Happy Holidays one instead
  • Peppermints – just used a candy sticker

Then I attached a gift card with ribbon and called it done.  This could work for anyone with or without the gift card.




Another Pinterest inspired idea I jumped on was North Pole sticks.


I’ve seen them in cupcakes, powdered donuts or marshmallows.  Super cute.  The kids watched Polar Express with cookies and milk for their school party.  So I sent them home with a North Pole hot chocolate stirring stick with a jingle bell attached.


My original plan was to dip these in chocolate, but I tell ya, I cannot seem to melt chocolate.  So I adjusted and create my own method.  A quick dip in water and roll in  sparkly sugar crystals and boom there you go!



These would be great just hanging with the fam having hot chocolate or out on a platter at a little holiday shin dig.


Last week, I had snack duty for Sunday school.  I couldn’t resist slapping on these melted snowmen labels to add a bit of fun to the water bottles.  I found this free printable here.


We brought the Sunday school teacher some Elf Kisses…


…and we were going to bring snowman powdered donuts, but instead of cute, they looked kind of creepy.  So plain powdered donuts it was!



Check out my Christmas pin board for more last minute pinspiration.

I’m definitely in last minute mode trying to tie up a bunch of loose ends.

Are you ready or are you in last minute mode too?
