Searching for that last minute gift but your budget has gone out the window and you really don’t want to go to the shops?

Then here is a last minute gift guide that you can literally do last minute.All you need is some basic cooking skills and a trip to your local supermarket and you are set to go.



Homemade granola is a perfect gift that you can whip up the night before.  Make sure you buy a jar of pickles or a spread so you can use the jar if you don’t have one.  All other ingredients can be bought at your local supermarket.  My granola recipe is here.



Tasty Almond Balls have only 5 ingredients, are super healthy and taste great.  Easy to whip up in 5 minutes as no cooking or setting required.  You can find the recipe here.


Why not give a breakfast pudding in a jar.  Super healthy and looks so lovely.  Must be stored in the fridge once made up.  You can decorate the jar in whatever style you like.  Recipe can be found here.




Often there is a last minute trip to Bunnings before Christmas.  If you do happen to go, grab yourself a handful of the paint chips located in the paint aisle.  These colourful chips come in very handy.  I made gift tags out of mine recently when I wanted a bright pop of colour for my kraft paper wrapping.





If you are at the supermarket, grab a bunch of cherries, a block of chocolate and a container of sprinkles for a last minute gift idea that is so delicious and Christmassy, no one will know you rushed this one.


All that is required here is CD wrappers and a quick biscuit recipe, tie a ribbon around and you have the perfect gift.  You can find this biscuit recipe here.20130910-161618.jpg


If all else fails, a gift of fresh fruit either cut up or left whole is a lovely way to say Merry Christmas.
