It’s never a bad idea to have a gift or two wrapped under the tree for those unexpected guests that pop in during the holiday season.
Christmas is a busy time with extended family and friends visiting during the festive season. I think it’s safe to say most people worry about being gifted something and not having a present on hand to return the favour.
So we have wrapped up some of our own tried and tested ‘just in case’ gift ideas you can have ready for those unexpected visitors.
1) Cookies and Christmas go hand-in-hand. Can you imagine the look on your recipient’s face when they see these super adorable Christmas tree cookies? Why not buy a batch to have gifts-a-plenty? – Jenna
2) Christmas decorations are my favourite easy gift, this one from Little Paper Lane is so cute! – Babs
3) You can’t go past the gift of nature – the perfect pressie for an extended family member or a friendly neighbour. I’m a big fan of these Japanese hanging plants called Kokedama. Buy one here or make one yourself. – Jenna
