It's true there's still several days until Christmas arrives. But if you're making and buying gifts let's face it - we're officially in last minute territory. I'm there with you on both counts. It isn't too late if you think creatively, and I'm here to share a few ideas to help you finish checking off your list!

These adorable, printable bag toppers and recipe cards from Kate Hadfield Designs can make even some simple candy into a special gift. They're also available without the text if you have some creative ideas of your own.
If you still have holiday parties to attend, you may be looking for hostess gift ideas. This breakfast crate from Craftberry Bush should be easy to put together with a visit to one or two stores.
Who doesn't love some cookies this time of year? Make them even more giftable with these festive containers from Fun Squared.
Fleece blankets are really easy to make, and the variety of prints available now is crazy. It's Always Autumn shows three different ways to turn that fabric into a special gift.
I love this idea from Thirty Handmade Days! It's been really cold here lately, so this jar of goodies to help keep warm would definitely be welcome. You could even swap parts of it out if you have something different you'd like to include. I'm thinking maybe some hot cinnamon candies or a little candle.
We all know gift cards are a great last minute gift, but they don't have to be boring. Check out these felt holiday card holders from DIY Candy.
The nice thing about gifts from the kitchen is that they can be perfect for almost anyone. These snowmen from Hungry Happenings would be sweet in one of those Christmas tins you can find just about everywhere right now.
I love Chex mix, because you can start with the basic ingredients but make it entirely different with seasonings or add-ins. This dill pickle version from Averie Cooks makes my mouth water, and would be a great gift in a jar.
There's something special about homemade candy, and these simple butterscotch drops from The Spruce would make a great gift in a pretty container.
I've actually tried this temporary tattoo paper from Silhouette, available on Amazon, and it works really well. You don't even have to use them with a Silhouette - just cut them out by hand. You can print tattoos with just about any design or text on them to use as stocking stuffers or party favors. Be sure to include some "Mom" ink in there.
Printables are handy when time gets short, and this Christmas doll and dollhouse set from BigHlittlei is just that. I would say you don't even need to be a kid to enjoy this!
It's time for a new calendar, so this printable from BrianManfraPhoto is a timely gift.
