The Easiest Last Minute Gift Idea: Christmas Trail Mix!
This is literally the easiest last minute gift idea on the planet! And you probably already have several of the ingredients on hand. Just head over to the store, grab a few store-brand items, and mix this up in minutes at home!

Don’t forget your free printable gift tags!
Divide into gift bags and add our free printable gift tags to give this as a super simple, inexpensive holiday gift this year!
