12 Days of Christmas Giveaways Day 9: Walmart Gift Card and Some Last Minute Gift Ideas

Have you gotten gifts for everyone on your holiday list yet?  Everyone?  You haven't forgotten anyone?  Are you sure?  Really, really sure?

If not don't worry, here are some fab last minute gift ideas from the store Walmart.  

Gift Sets
Gift sets make perfect last minute gift ideas.  Just think of something the person likes and you'll probably find a gift set they're sure to appreciate.  For example, if the person likes Minions this Minion-themed gift set is sure to please and it's less than $10... even less than the posted $9.98, it's on sale for $7.98.

Looking for something a little ooh la la, check out this Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares Gift Set and it's only $9.
In a Jar Gifts
If a gift set isn't your style or it seems too impersonal, why not create some in a jar soup, cookie or brownie mixes.  Start with some mason jars.

Fill with the makings of your favorite soup, cookie mix or homemade brownie mix, print instructions on some gift tags and attach with some raffia or a pretty bow and tada.  

One of my favorite bloggers, Stephanie at Six Figures Under has a tasty Brownie in a Jar recipe that I have used several times. It works and I can change it to make it all mine by adding macadamia nuts, pecans, peanut butter chips or whatever I like to the mix and it's a winner every single time.  Plus, mason jars are so useful.  I use them to make salad in a jar, dessert in a jar, gifts in a jar.

Yes, food makes for a great gift idea but you can also use mason jars to create wonderful scented bath oils and soaks.  

We had the chance to make scented bath oils while at BlogHer '16 in L.A. over the Summer.  Which reminds me to remind a certain fashionista college student that your bath oils are at my house. 

I love making scented bath soaks.  They're so relaxing and easy to make.  All you need is 1 cup epsom salt,  1/3 cup baking soda, couple of drops of food coloring to color your soak, carrier oil to soften your skin and a scented oil or extract to make it pop.  I love using lavender, coconut and peppermint oils or extracts like lemon, vanilla, or banana.  Ooh, banana and coconut are the makings of a delightful tropical scented soak. 

Directions:  Mix epsom salt and baking soda in a bowl and add 3-4 drops of food coloring and 3-4 drops of your favorite oil(s).  Stir.  You can add more food coloring to get the desired color you want and add more drops of your favorite oil until you get the scent you desire.  Pour into a mason jar and seal. Make it extra fancy by crushing up some dried rose petals and adding a gift tag and tying a bow or raffia around the mason jar.

Bath Sets
Or you can just buy a bath gift set from Walmart.  Hey, DYI is not for everybody.
