5 last-minute holiday gift ideas.


Ok it’s the 21st of December and there are only 3 days left to get those gifts. Here are my favorite last-minute gift ideas for your close friends and your acquaintances.

1. Food.

Good for basically anyone, food gifts can range from homemade cookies to a gourmet marshmallow kit.  Chocolates, fancy meats, box of donuts, it just has to fit the situation and the person you are gifting. Cookies, for example, can be made more classy with some cute designs and a personalized tin, like these ones from Sent With A Loving Kiss. They’re having a 3 for 2 offer right now so you could even send some directly to your friends.

2. Books.

This year I have discovered the miracle of books as holiday gifts. There is such a wide variety. My cousin loves to travel, so a travel book filled with stunning photos and eye-catching graphic design it is.

3. Subscription Service.

A gift that comes ever month is definitely better than a single gift for the holiday season. Services like ipsy,  and Darby Smart offer affordable monthly packages that come to their home filled with beauty products, a DIY project, and even a whole card kit for those stationary lovers.

4. Movie kit.

I’m pretty sure most people like watching movies and a great gift for those avid movie lovers is by taking them on a movie date, without you being there. I think most movie theaters offer tickets that can be used at any time, for any movie (just not 3D/IMAX) that they like. And I’d throw in some popcorn too. See #1 🙂

5. Gift Cards

If there’s really nothing else, help them make a big purchase, a bit easier on the wallet with a gift card. Just make sure it has some thought and meaning to it.

There you go, five last-minute gifts so you don’t have to start making those holiday gifts, New Year’s gifts.
