You can take my bad day box idea and create a fun gift for a friend or your spouse. Either you can go with the theme of it being a bad day box, or you can call it a day after Christmas survival kit. Put the individual’s favorite snacks and other items to help them relax after the holiday. To find out ideas of what I put in the bad day box, go HERE.

Again, this is another gift that doesn’t require you to purchase anything. You can gather supplies and put them in a basket. This could be a fun gift for your spouse, or children. I put a blanket, pillow, movie, and hot chocolate in my basket. Depending on your budget, you can use items you own. Sometimes, it is the time together that is the real gift.

Homemade Muddy Buddy Chex Mix

On the back of every box of chexmex you will find different recipes. I bought a box the other day to make some last-minute treats for friends. I needed a gluten-free dessert for some of my relatives. I did a simple search for a muddy buddy recipe and put together this mix in a few minutes. It took peanut butter, butter, chocolate, chex, and powdered sugar.

White Chocolate Candy Cane Chex Mix

I also found a recipe for a white chocolate, candy cane chex recipe on the back of the box. All I need for this recipe was a bag of white chocolate chips, 4 cups of chex, and 4 large crushed candy canes. Melt the chocolate in a microwave, mix in the candy cane and pour over the chex. Spread out the mix onto wax paper and allow to cool.

These are a few last-minute gift ideas that you can do this Christmas.
