Guys! I only have SIX DAYS to get ready for Christmas! Procrastination is a bad quality and unfortunately it’s a MAJOR personality trait that I carry. Are you done? Let me guess, your Christmas cards were mailed WEEKS ago, and your Christmas presents are already wrapped! If you are in this category, I am so proud of you, and I need to be more like you!  My Christmas cards are “being processed” as we speak, and hopefully I’ll have them in two days so that I can mail them out with four days to spare. Yep, that’s how we roll. I often wonder why I am this way. My Mom is the EXACT opposite. She writes our family Christmas card throughout the entire year. I’m not even kidding. She is my hero.


Well, even if you are already done with your Christmas gifts for friends, neighbors, teachers and co-workers, I have more ideas for you! If you missed the first four days of this fun series, check them out:

DAY 1, DAY 2, DAY 3, and DAY 4.


I have had so much fun putting these ideas together! The main focus of this series was to find inexpensive yet thoughtful gifts that were EASY to put together. We don’t have time for elaborate gifts this time of year.

23. Double Chocolate Brownie Mix. “Wishing you a double chocolately Christmas!”

24. A yummy smelling candle. This one is from Target, and it smells DIVINE! “May the light of Christmas be in your home.”

25. Chocolate Truffles  {These cute little bags are only $1 at the dollar store!} “Every day is better with chocolate…even Christmas!”



26. Diet Coke with some cute matching straws. “Pop, pop, fizz, fizz, oh what a good friend you is.”

27. Extra gum {after all who couldn’t use an extra pack of gum at all times!?!} “Have an extra great Christmas!”

    These are hilarious! Love it!
    And All of my gifts are laying in a pile in the bag I bought them in and my cards are checked of my list. Not because I actually did them – because I decided I was sick of being stressed about all the stuff I had left to do. Fail. But next year? I’m gonna rock it. Hopefully.
