10 Easy Last Minute DIY Presents



Hey Guys, with Christmas just around the corner now, it can feel like it's too late to enjoy a DIY Christmas.  But I say there is still time to whip up a couple of last minute presents for our favourite people!

I've done a round up for us all of crafts which really do only take a really short amount of time to put together, but are bound to be hits!

So very easy and so very in right now- whip one up for all the stylish ladies in your life and sneak in an extra one for you while you're at it!

2. DIY Kimono Dressing Gown


Adjust the length of this kimono and sew up a simple belt to turn in from day wear to super cute and sexy dressing gown.



Here's me with one I made earlier!  Mors bags are a charity which encourages people to ditch the plastic bag in favour of reusable fabric ones.  They offer a free pattern to make simple bags, which come together really quickly.  I'd say make each person two or three and you've got a lovely, green, Christmas gift thats good to go (shopping that is).



From my own blog- the Cafetiere cosy is a really quick quilting project, perfect for the caffein junkie in your life.  Keeping the pot warm means one person can enjoy a whole pot to themselves, with out the disappointment of pouring a cold cup.



I've made this pattern a couple of times now so can personally attest to how easy and quick a make it is!  You're able to use almost any fabric for this, cottons, voiles, netting, so you can make really lovely and personal gift in no time.

6. DIY Knitted Mug Cosy


Such a cute idea and a really easy make to whip up.  Pair it with a nice mug and some sachets of hot chocolate, coffee or tea bags and its a great gift ready in no time.



This super simple but stylish hat would go down a treat with almost anyone, guys and girls.  


8. DIY Hogwarts Scarf


So this will take a little longer than most gifts here, but I know any Potter-Head would be so delighted to receive this gift, I'd say it's worth it.  Plus, you can always do none-hogwarts style and chose the colours of your favourite team.

9. Wine Bottle Covers


Whip a couple of these up to make the gift of wine (which is always welcome) really special!


10. DIY Book Marks



Pair this up with a much loved book and this is a really lovely gift idea!  Hit your local book shop for recommendations too for a proper paper back experience.


I hope this guide has inspired you make some lovely last minute gifts- it's not to late!  But, don't stress out too much, Christmas, after all, isn't about the presents, but spending time with those you love (and eating a tonne of food!)
