For some reason I am not (yet) in the Christmas spirit, which may be caused by the unlike warm weather in Europe. I honestly just realised today, that I have not been shopping to prepare the three day holiday feast and I am not even panicking at all.
I will have to go shopping later and may face long queues, but I don’t mind. I guess, I don’t need to be worried either, as I am not going to fight over a turkey or chicken anyway, as we will have delicious vegetarian / vegan meals, and I am assuming nobody is going to fight over fruits and veggies…
Here are my Top 3 Ideas for Last Minute Gifts:
- Candy & Hot Chocolate Jar
Fill a large clean jar, for example a spaghetti sauce jar with lid, 2/3 with hot chocolate powder, then add mini marshmallows and crushed candy canes. Close the lid and tie a ribbon around the top and decorate with a hand written note or tag.
- Raw Vegan Chocolate Truffles
Mix and blend 100g dry dates, 80g ground almonds or hazelnuts, 1 Tsp. coconut oil, 2 Tsps. chocolate powder, and 2 Tsps. water. Form 12 to 15 balls and roll in ca. 5 Tsps. desiccated coconut, chopped nuts, or for a simple finish, roll them in cocoa powder. Refrigerate for 10 minutes to set and fill the truffles in a gift pouch.
- Photo Collage
Print it on paper at home or at your local stationary shop, where you may be able to print it on a canvas, cushion, cup, or key holder.
I will leave you with a ‘Good Luck’ and ‘Stay Sane’ over your last preparations for the next three days.
Let me know what you think.
All the Best & Speak to you tomorrow,
(Can you tell that I LOVE CHOCOLATE? 😉 )
