No need to fall back on a gift card when you can make these thoughtful gifts in minutes.  What teacher doesn’t want to be told they are a super hero and who doesn’t love homemade goodies. Even though these are last minute gifts they are useful and will be appreciated. Gather just a few supplies and you can make the perfect gift. The best part is none of the supplies need to break the bank so they are perfect for co workers, friends and family. They would all make great Secret Santa gifts too!

Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

If you have a teacher on your list treat them to this awesome tote.  I have provided the iron-on for you! Just iron for an easy last minute teacher gift.

You will need a canvas tote bag and iron on transfer sheets. Make sure you get the right type of transfer paper for your fabric. I choose the transfer paper for light fabric. I found this tote at a large craft store. There are a variety of styles to choose from.

Trim around the design. According to package directions iron transfer to the fabric. Add a bow and you have a useful teacher gift that lets your teacher know how amazing you think they are!

If you think you teacher might not be into a tote this would work well on a t-shirt too!
