It’s crunch time people! Either you’re completely finished and relishing the moment, or you’re completely crazed wondering how you’re going to get it all done.
Here are a few Last Minute Christmas Ideas that may help smooth out the day.
Last Minute Christmas Ideas
Some years, you just gotta let a few things go. This year, I didn’t do Christmas cards again and it’s the first year I didn’t give out neighbor gifts. GASP! But, guess who’s less stressed than I would have been and enjoying the season? ME!! So I give you permission (like you needed it) to let go of a few of the “shoulds” of the season and relax.
Last Minute Christmas Ideas for Wrapping –
This year, my son is receiving a lot of clothing items (his request), so I had several of those white gift boxes.
After I wrapped a couple, I realized they would be just as nice with cute ribbon or decorative washi tape and a printed tag. Done!
I can’t tell you how much time that saved me!
