Tons of Affordable Last Minute Gift Ideas {and Cute Wrapping!}

December 16, 2021

Fun last minute (and easy!) gift ideas for the person that has everything! 

Looking for last minute gift ideas that take little or no effort to pull together? I've gathered a ton to share with you, as well as some SUPER cute Christmas wrapping items to make your gifts look great!

These finds are perfect for a fun gift exchange or that hard-to-buy-for person. 

There are also quite a few really inexpensive items that would work well when you need multiples for neighbors, teachers or co-workers.

I've been working with Big Lots this year, sharing some of my favorites from their stores and online. 

I've shopped Big Lots for years and have always loved their Christmas decor, but this year I also noticed how many awesome gift sets they have. 

They have a gifts for everyone -- so many fun sets that I just had to share with you. I bought quite a few of them, but can't tell you who they're for, since those people read the blog often. ;)

I'm sharing a few of my favorites here, but they literally had hundreds to pick from! 

I loved that so many sets and ready to go as they were, or could be completed with just one or two items for a really sweet gift. 

This Oreo dunking set was too cute:

It even comes with tongs so you can get a full dunk into the milk! 

The set includes six Oreos, but I would add a whole package to the gift...because six would be gone within minutes in our house. 😂

If you have a Coca-Cola lover in your family, this set with the classic Coke glasses is a fun idea:

Even the crate it comes in is cute! 

Hot cocoa bombs were HUGE last year, but I couldn't find the molds to make them anywhere! This hot chocolate bomb kit has everything you need to make your own:

I may keep this one for myself. ;) 

Tis the season to make cookies, right? I thought this spatula set and red baking mat would be so cute wrapped up with a cookie mix:

You could throw them all in a mixing bowl with tissue paper -- no wrapping needed.

Big Lots had a TON of these adorable oven mitt and cookie mix sets! I lost count of how many different options they had -- at least ten:

There were so many designs, and at least three baking mixes. Some were muffins, some cookies.

They would be perfect on their own or added to the holiday baking items above. And these are only $6 each!

As you can see, some of the sets come with a small cutting board as well. Too cute!

What a cute gift idea for teachers with a gift card tucked inside! Such an easy and inexpensive gift for neighbors and co-workers as well. 

I thought this "giving plate" set would be sweet for anyone who loves to bake for loved ones:

I loved the idea of passing the plate around, but it's so pretty I'd have to return it. ;) 

You can't go wrong with coffee and hot chocolate gifts -- you know they'll be used and enjoyed!

This hot cocoa set comes with a bunch of different flavors you could break up and gift individually:

This 12 K-cup coffee set has flavors from buttered rum to Christmas cookie and could be given out separately as well:

Add one of the super cute Christmas mugs from Big Lots and you'll have yet another easy present for just about anybody:

After you've found the perfect gift, take a look at their huge wrapping selection! 

Our Big Lots had a whole aisle dedicated to holiday wrapping, and they had the CUTEST stuff. So many affordable gift tags like these:

They also had rolls of sticky tags with different designs for just a few dollars. 

Plus TONS of gift bags...all of which would also look great framed and made into holiday art!:

And they had a huge selection of tins and containers to gift homemade treats. I grabbed these for our neighbor gifts:

Isn't that so pretty? I've really been drawn to black accents with red and green this Christmas. So much so, I continued the theme of our basement tree decor in those colors into the wrapping. 

I picked up this buffalo check paper and red truck wrapping paper at Big Lots, as well as all of these bows, gift tags and bags:

Our basement is so cozy this Christmas after all of the updates I've made this year. I've been wrapping all of the gifts down here because I love this space so much!

I used red, green and black ornaments on the tree, and I love that the wrapping matches! SO pretty!:
