It never fails. As we near the end of the holiday season, although I have made my list and checked it twice, I suddenly realize I have accidentally left someone off my list. If you find yourself in this compromising situation, let me recommend a couple simple last minute gift ideas. Great for neighbors, coworkers, or the hostess of a recent holiday event, these gifts are versatile and sure to please just about anyone.

As someone who commonly enjoys a casual gathering of guests, I try to keep disposable cups and cocktail napkins on hand for the occasion a friend drops by for a cocktail and conversation. These items team up nicely with the extra ribbon and boxes I stash during the holiday season for the inevitable last minute gifting dash. 

One quick and easy gift idea I have often whipped up in the holiday home stretch is a Christmas cookie box. In a festive box, simply add an assortment of Christmas cookies or treats. As a fun finishing touch, use red baker’s twine to tie a mini bottle of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream to the box and slide your Christmas card on top or a festive gift tag. Finished in a flash.

A second option is to send a spirited “Fa-la-la-la-la-la” in liquid form. A festive bottle of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Peppermint Mocha paired up with a set of holiday cups from Busy Bee Gifts can be wrapped and ready to go in no time. Tie together with a pretty plaid or ravishing red ribbon and this present is prepared to please.
