Christmas is right around the corner.
I'm super impressed with those of you who are already done and are sitting back sipping your hot cocoa laughing at
me the rest of us right now. If you're anything like me, you are scrambling around trying to finish gifts for teachers, classmates, neighbors, and friends (who didn't get a cookie plate.)
I thought I would throw together a list of last minute gift ideas to help us.
The great thing behind this list is that you can use items that you may already have around the house, or can easily find at the local store, to finish these off. Add a fun tag, and BOOM! you're done.
Plus, I'm sharing a page of free printable tags that you can add to a plate of sweets about 3/4 of the way down. Hopefully that will make things a little easier on you!
