It’s official. We have only 5 days left until the first day of Hanukkah and only 10 days left until Christmas. How many gifts do you have left to buy? Let’s see a show of hands for how many people have yet to cross off a single person on their gift list. You need a quick plan of action.

While it may seem that DIY gifts are time-consuming and require substantial planning ahead, it’s not always the case. At this stage in the game, you can’t expect to knit your husband a scarf or make a stained glass window for your mother or paint a 3-D jigsaw puzzle for your kid. But you still have time to throw together some yummy DIY treats that are sure to be well-received and thoroughly enjoyed. Nothing says I Love You like the thoughtful gift of food.

For your own sake, skip the mall and take a stab at some of these super simple DIY gifts. You may find the art of DIY relaxing as the holiday season amps up.

    What if I’m trying to make gifts, but don’t really want them to be well received? Do you have any recipes like that? Cause my evil twin brother is visiting for the holidays.
