last minute neighbor gifts

Here are a couple more quick and easy neighbor/co-worker/hostess gifts you can put together fast, just in case you're still searching for a little something.

These "root deer" would be a great gift to put together with the kids. Just decorate each bottle in a six pack of root beer with pipe cleaner, pom-poms, googly eyes, and felt. We even added a tiny jingle bell collar.

If you're even shorter on time, try wrapping up a fun holiday-scented item like this Winter Candy Apple hand soap from Bath & Body Works. This would make a fabulous hostess gift.

Or, wrap up a bottle of sparkling apple cider or your favorite wine for a simple but very welcome holiday gift. We found this lovely photo on Divine Caroline, and they share a few other "last-minute gifts that don't seem so. . ."

Happy gifting!
