Christmas Gifts, Greetings, and Gorgeousness!

Just popping in to say Merry Christmas! to you all!
I can't believe it's Christmas Eve! Time has flown! I've been very busy lately, but it's paid off  because all my gifts and cards are FINALLY made, wrapped, bought, glittered, enveloped, signed, tagged, photographed ;) and are sitting under a sparkling tree ready for tomorrow! I have NEVER been this organised, so I'm quite proud of myself!  If you've still got to make gifts and are completely panicking, here's a few

Head on over to Creature Comforts for:
10 Last Minute Diy Gift Ideas!   
 There's some great ideas here that you could whip up today if you get cracking!    

You could give the gift of ornaments! Here's a link  for a round-up of last-minute ornament ideas!  

Another round-up of last-minute gift ideas here! Not as stylish as the creature comforts one, but there are some cute ideas.

How about giving a semi-homemade gift to save on time, but not sentimental value?  For example, spruce up an old notebook (or new cheap one!) with:

- A little fabric message or name of the recipient,

- Pretty Vintage Fabric (see top right),

- Fun Foam Stamps, or...

- Washi tape (Isn't this one just gorgeous!)

If you (amazingly) have lots of time on your hands, trawl through check out ;) One Pretty Thing's Handmade Gift Guide, a ginormous collection of gifts you can make, in every size, shape, and colour. Some are better than others. Like I said, there may be a bit of trawling involved!

And finally on the gifts front, something entitled "Little or No Skill Required Holiday Gifts" Sounds good to me! Now where did I put the chalkboard paint?!

And of course, don't forget the wrapping! Have the best looking gifts under the tree with these two links full of pretty ideas:

And if you really just want to be swamped by gorgeous wrapping ideas, check out my Pinterest board dedicated to just that! I've pinned tags, toppers, twist ties and more here! You'll find free printables, diy ideas, and just plain eye candy! Some presents here look too great to ever unwrap.
 I hope this helps!
Merry Christmas, I'll see you (hopefully!) in the New Year!  S xx
