No matter how hard you try to be organized, there always seems to be something that you have forgotten. It is part of having a busy life when you are a mom with a million different things on your hand. Sometimes we forget about those last minute gifts or just want to show our appreciation to someone.
If you are walking around looking for that last minute gift, don’t go to the mall or any other store. You might want to visit the grocery store. Yes, that’s right, the grocery store! Surprisingly, there are things there that you can give away.
Check out these last minute gifts that you can find at your grocery store!
1. Root Beer Floats Kit
Get some bottles or cans of root beer and a container of ice. This is a delicious treat that anyone can enjoy at any time of the year.
2. Italian dinner
Getting a pasta dinner together as a gift is easy to put together. Get pasta, sauce, and whatever else to expect from your gift recipient.
3. Caramel apple kit
A caramel apple kit is super easy and cute. Choose a bag of your favorite apples and combine it with individual servings of caramel or a large tub of them.
4. Hot chocolate kit
A cup of hot chocolate is another great last minute. There are many different hot cocoa mixes to choose from. Grab a bag of marshmallows and maybe some whipped cream! You can wrap the marshmallows in a mini cellophane bag and a small ribbon to tie them off.
5. Asian cuisine
The Asian gang is full of wonderful ideas. There are plenty of quick snacks that you can wrap in a cut lunch bag with a bow on it.
There are plenty of sweets to choose from in the bakery. From cookies, cakes, brownies and more. Pick a piece and wrap it in a pretty container or with a bow.
Nothing is better than a nice gift of coffee. Pick a nice brand of coffee and wrap it in a cute bag or wrap a little ribbon around it.
8. A bouquet of flowers
There is a selection of freshly cut flowers in the flower area of the grocery store. Pick a bouquet that you like. If possible, you can also create your own bouquet. Flowers are a great gift for any season.
Nobody can have too many spices, especially if they stock up on them. Buy some basic condiments in sweet bottles. You can also purchase some unique spices that you think the person receiving the gift would love to use.
10. Strawberries and chocolate
If strawberries are in season in your area, consider buying some strawberries and a tub of chocolate fruit dip. This is a true classic that everyone can enjoy.
11. Create your own custom grocery basket
Why not make your own food basket for that special person? There are many items in the store that you can collect to make the perfect last minute gift. One quick gift I love to put together is my favorite meat, crackers, and cheese.
