DIY last minute gift ideas! For boyfriend, parents, BFF… |Christmas/Birthdays!

Hi guys!

In this video I will show you some really cute last minute gift ideas for all your friends and family. They are all affordable, easy and really quick to make and I’m sure everyone would love them. These are perfect for: mom, dad, sister, brother, boyfriend, girlfriend, BFF, coworkers, classmates, teacher…The list is endless!

For the first idea you will need: a deep frame, some sticker letters, and some candy or chocolate.

Start off by taking out the back of the frame and leave the glass part. Then arrange your candy in the frame. I’m using mini kit kat bars but of course you can use whatever you want. Then, put the back of the frame and secure it with some tape.

Then stick your letter so it says “in case of emergency break glass”. Finally I outlined the letter to make them pop a little bit more. And that’s it! This idea is really simple but I think is the perfect way to give candy in a creative way.

The second idea is perfect for girls and you will need: suede rope, and a closure.

First, take three strands of the rope and tape then to your table. Then just make a braid until you are happy with the length. Then cut the excess and add your closure. There are millions of different closures out there and they are easily found at craft stores or bead shops. Do the same to the other side and that’s it! These are super quick to make and they look great. I also made this orange one with just two loops.

The last idea is perfect for everyone and you will need: some chocolate chip cookies, cream cheese and chocolate.
Here, I’m using a packet of 12 cookies (200gr), 4 tablespoons of cheese and more or less 50 grs of chocolate.

First, crush the cookies with whatever you have at home and place them in a bowl or plate. Put 4 tablespoons of cream cheese in a glass put it in the microwave for a few seconds until is smooth. Pour this into the crushed cookies and mix everything until you get a thick paste.
Then, Roll the cookie mixture into little balls, and keep them in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Fill a pot with hot water and a glass inside and melt your chocolate there. This is the best way to melt chocolate without burning it.

Cover the cookie balls with the melted chocolate with the help of two spoons and before the chocolate hardens add some sprinkles if you want. Then keep it in the fridge until they harden.
I also made a bag with some cellophane. To make the base I just put a box inside and tape one of the side as I was wrapping a present. Then I took out the box and put my truffles inside. Finally, I closed the bag with some ribbon.

As you see, this idea is perfect if you want to make some treats but you’re not very good at cooking or you can’t use the oven. They taste really good so I’m sure everyone will love them!

So that was it, I hope you could find this video useful and I wish you have a merry merry Christmas with your family and friends. As always thanks for watching and I talk to you next time! Bye!

    Instead of getting a ‘deep’ frame as you said people can get a shadow box
    than they don’t have to tape the back on and make it look not as nice..
