2) A festive mug or ornament
We all know that it’s time for the holidays when we start seeing wrapping paper, gift bags, and other holiday supplies popping up in stores. One of the best parts about this time of year is gifting friends, family members, or coworkers with thoughtful gifts. For those who are looking for some great last-minute gift bag ideas to give to a handful of people this season. If you’re hosting a Christmas party, these inexpensive yet thoughtful options are perfect for your guests to take home. Fill any festive-looking mug with cocoa mix, hot chocolate mix, candy canes, peppermint bark—or any other fun sweets. It’s also a nice idea to add something small from your local grocery store like fancy whipped cream or marshmallows (optional).
3) A homemade pie
A homemade pie is a delicious way to give a thoughtful thankfulness gift to your loved ones this Thanksgiving. In addition to a pie crust, you’ll need the following ingredients: 1 cup of flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of shortening (or butter), 1 egg white, and 5-7 tablespoons of cold water. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl first, then cut in the shortening or butter with two knives until it’s mixed well.
4) A nice scented candle
A nice scented candle is a great gift for any friend or family member who’s a fan of candles. As an added bonus, it will make your home smell amazing while they’re away. It doesn’t have to be long; just let them know how much you appreciate what they do every day. If the person you want to give this too doesn’t use candles often, try getting a new scent that they might not yet have tried before!
5) A festive dish towel
For the hostess, a dish towel is a great gift. It’s practical, inexpensive, and something they’ll use often. For the holiday season, you can find many dish towels with phrases such as Keep Calm and Eat Cookies, A House Is Not A Home Without Cookies, or A Cookie A Day Keeps The Doctor Away. You can also find seasonal dish towels with snowmen, Santa Claus in his sleigh, gingerbread men or other symbols of winter.
6) A cute thank you card
Don’t forget to thank your friends, family, teachers, neighbors, etc. this season with a thoughtful thank you card in a festive gift bag. Write their name on the outside of the card with the following message: It’s been wonderful being your friend/neighbor/etc. Inside, include a personalized note of thanks or recipe. You can also fill the cards out yourself and have one ready for every person in your life who has done something nice for you this year!
