It happened again. With the stealth of a jungle cat, Christmas has come screaming out of the bushes ready to eat us alive. Or at the very least, have us eat ourselves to death. It’s a surprise every year. Christmas is months away and doesn’t need to be thought about at all, then without ANY sort of warning, it’s here demanding to be celebrated. And it’s kind of pushy about it quite frankly. The calendar seems to be the last thing we look to when trying to figure out when Christmas is. Otherwise we’d all have a better sense of when it was coming. I happen to know it’s coming because a) I still don’t have any cookies made regardless of The Christmas Pledge and b) all of the television news anchors are being swallowed by Poinsettias.
There are a billion reasons why you might need a fast inexpensive present. It could be for a handmade work gift exchange, or a hostess gift or you’re a starving student. Or a starving artist. Or you want to cheap out on gifts so you can have enough money left over for yourself to buy that really special blue cheese infused with red wine that runs about $35 for a small hunk.
Regardless of the reason I’ve gathered up all the gift ideas from The Art of Doing Stuff that I think can be done relatively inexpensively and quickly. Those are my fancy words. What’s I’d actually say is cheap and fast. Like a $10 hooker. I’m not sure why I turned to the flowery, official language. ‘Tis the season I guess.
If you’re looking for more take a look at my Pinterest Board “DIY Gift Ideas“. There are some great ones on there. Mind you. You don’t have to look right now. I mean Christmas is still a ways off. There’s lots of time for making presents and picking out gifts.
AHRGHHARRRRRRAGHHHHARGHHHH!!!!! Sorry for the outburst. I was just startled by a surprise jungle cat.
