Worried about running out of time and still want to find the perfect gift that will wow both friends and family?  There really is no need to fret! There are plenty of low-stress options for last minute gifts that you can make at home.  From succulents to personalised stationery, you can easily find something to work for you in our last-minute gift choices.

Spice things up with a salt and pepper shaker

If you’re looking to add a dash of personality to any dining room table or kitchen, then one of the easiest ways is with personalised salt and pepper shakers.  You can add etched designs to give your shakers some much-needed personality.

A lavender heat bag

A great way of warming up on a cold, wintry day, making a wonderfully-scented heat bag will always be a well-appreciated gift.  This is great for relaxing any aching muscles and placing lavender and wheat inside the fabric then sewing it will ensure nothing falls out.

Sculpt your own clay jewellery dishes

You may be surprised to hear this, but it is actually really easy to form your very own beautiful dishes out of clay.  Once formed, you can line the edges of your new jewellery dishes with acrylic paint for an interesting decorative touch.  The lucky loved one will have a wonderful place to store rings and earrings.

DIY flower vases

One of the easiest ways to create beautiful DIY flower jars is to paint the outside of any left-over glass jars a bright and vibrant colour – the bolder the better!  After the paint has dried all that’s left to do is fill them with your favourite fresh blooms.

Gemstone earrings

We can all agree that the best jewellery will give off a bit of personality and flair.  Grab your glue gun and secure precious gemstones or rhinestones to plain earring backs for fun and quirky jewellery your friends and family will love.

DIY soap stones

Fancy soaps are no longer just found in luxury spas.  You can easily make your own soap stones out of a few simple ingredients.  Add things like rose extract and lavender with essential oils to create a warm and relaxing fragrance.

Homemade candles

Candles help to add cosiness and warmth to any space in your home.  They also make a fantastic gift for anyone in your life! Opting to make them yourself means that you can easily customise the scent, colour and overall look of your candles.  Buy an at-home candle hit and you’ll never purchase a store-bought candle again!

This one is for the knitting fans!

If you’re a big fan of the gorgeous knitted blankets made famous by Instagram, then why not make one of your very own?  Make someone in your life very happy by gifting them their very own luxurious blanket that you have hand-knitted yourself.
