Sweets: – If you have no time at all to buy chocolates, then just make chocolates or caramels at home! Pick up a pack of caramels from any local shop. You can also make some pretzel bites using chocolates, cranberries and smashed pretzels. Put the smashed pretzels into the melted chocolate and add in chopped pieces of cranberry. Spoon them into moulds and leave them to set in the fridge. After few hours, once you are done assembling other gifts, this will be ready. Put it in an airtight fancy container and wrap it up!

Jars: – A clever jar gift can consists of anything. You can put in homemade jams or some lavender flowers can be bought dried in jars with some added sugar.

Kits: – If you are planning to gift kits of make-up, jewellery, etc. then you are going to need hardly an hour to make a gift hamper.
