Are you done with your Christmas shopping? Yeah, me neither. If you need some help and want something fast, fun, and affordable - here are five gift ideas in five minutes.

First, get out your Crock-Pot. We're going to make Snowman Poop! I found this fun recipe on a blog called Crock-Pot Ladies. All you need to do is melt some Almond Bark in your Crock-Pot, mix in some Honey Nut Cheerios and Funfetti Cake Mix, then spread it all over a baking pan and let it cool. Check? Check.

Second, grab a bag of Hershey's Kisses. Throw it in a Ziploc Bag, put some ribbon on it and a little tag. What do you have? Mrs. Claus' Kisses!

Third, grab a bag of green and red M&Ms. Separate all the red M&Ms from the green M&Ms. That's the hardest part. No joke. Throw the green M&Ms in a Ziploc Bag, put some ribbon on it and a tag that says - Grinch Pills.

Fourth, you need four things - oatmeal, sugar, green sprinkles, and red sprinkles. Take a mason jar (or any kind of cute container) and fill it with equal parts of all four and VIOLA - Reindeer Dust!

Fifth, grab some more Almond Bark and melt it in microwave. Then, grab all those red M&Ms (unless you already ate them). Using a bag of Bugles, simply dip the open side of a Bugle into the melted Almond Bark, then stick an M&M in there. You know what you just made? Click below:

I hope these quick gift ideas are useful to you and mostly - make you smile. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
