5 Last-Minute Gifts for Volunteers

VolunteersNeed to come up with some cool and creative Christmas gifts for your amazing team of volunteers this year? With time ticking away, we've got your back! I thought I'd share with you some crafty creations my co-workers have made and shared with me. With some craft supplies and some do-it-yourself know-how, you'll be ready to give cool gifts for every volunteer.


Hot Cocoa Snowmen

Got to love this one! The version on Pinterest uses baby food jars stacked on top of each other to create a cool hot cocoa container. My co-worker Ali used small square plastic containers and filled two with cocoa for a double dose of chocolatey  goodness. She put two peppermints on the scarf as buttons. Super cool.

Sock Snowman

Another snowman idea! Simple and full of personality, these snowman socks are fun to keep around any work space. I've received one, and I've already used him as a paperweight, a cell phone holder, and glass cleaner (thanks to his soft fluffy hat).

Christmas Tree Button Ornament

Put a Christmas treeonyour Christmas tree with this unique ornament! Using some buttons and some thin wire, you too can make this ornament that your volunteers won't forget.

Joy and Soap

Anyone who knows me understands that I love puns. So when I saw this, I knew I had to share it. Soap! What better gift to give someone who works with kids. Plus it shows you wish volunteers a Christmas season full of joy and soap.

Pinecone Christmas Tree

Okay, here's a bonus for you! A co-worker/friend made some awesome mini-Christmas trees out of pinecones. As I was looking for where she found the idea, I stumbled across this page. It not only has the craft she made, but 29 others! There some great ideas in here that will hopefully give you some ideas.
