Disclosure: I received these products to facilitate this last minute gift post. All opinions are my own.
We have all done it. It is getting down to the last couple of shopping days left and we start to get concerned over the possibility of getting everything done. We know there are at least a gift or two left to buy and we need something a little different then we normally get but we can not manage to get any good ideas.
This year I did actually find a few great last minute gift ideas that have low cost, but are sure to please.

Lots of Irish fairies from Fairy Valley have taken up residence in many Canadian homes. They’re surprising homeowners and their children from all over Canada. The fairies have flown over from Fairy Valley in what appears to be the largest fairy migration in North America in recent history. With different personalities and needs as those of their human roommates, the fairies live in the baseboards, gardens and walls of homes, marked by tiny wooden fairy doors, which they set up upon arrival.
