If you haven’t checked everyone off on your shopping list, now’s the perfect time to do so as we’re winding down to the last few days before Christmas. I know this week can get super hectic from tying up loose ends at the office to attending every holiday function. It can feel nearly impossible to run out to the mall and there’s always the possibility that you won’t receive a shipment in time. So, I wanted to share some gift options that are worth grabbing this week. Whether you’re looking for a traditional ideas or something more unique, these last minute holiday gifts are perfect for everyone on your list. I also included a few option from reliable retailers that you can trust will deliver your gifts on time.
Subscription services are the gift that keeps on giving! There are subscription services for literally everything – and I’m sure friends and family members will appreciate that they get something every so often! Billie is a great one for girls who never give their razor much thought. You can read my full review here – the blades are incredibly sharp and leave my skin so soft and smooth. Best of all, it’s super affordable! Bouqs delivers fresh flowers on your schedule, which is fully customizable. They’re a great pick-me-up and make the home feel nicer too! Winc Wine Club is perfect for the wine drinker and will deliver 3 unique bottles from around the world to your front door.
One of my favorite last minute things to give are experiential, such as a trip, spa treatment, or online class. Groupon always has really amazing last-minute deals for quick getaways, massages, or even meals for two. They’re great for couples, parents, and the in-laws. I also think it’s so thoughtful to buy someone an online course that can further their career or teach them new skills in a field they’re interested in. Masterclass currently has a “give one, get one free” offer that allows you to treat yourself too. They have classes taught by Diane Von Furtsenburg, Anna Wintour, Natalie Portman and more! Creative Live is great for budding photographers or friends who want to become influencers but need help stepping up their photography game.
Tech & Appliances
Holiday gifts don’t get any more practical than tech gadgets and appliances. There are such a broad range of price points to pick from too. The Google Home Mini is now less than $35 and was such a hot item last holiday season. If you weren’t able to grab one then, definitely grab one now. Phil and I still use ours to play music, check the weather, and set reminders. I also think personalized phone cases are so thoughtful – Casetify makes the prettiest ones!
I love the idea of giving more sustainable gifts for Christmas this year. Items like reusable straws, self-cleaning water bottles, and temperature-controlled mugs are all items that people may not necessarily buy for themselves but are so useful. They’re better for the environment and won’t end up getting stashed away in a box.
If all else fails, there are always eGift cards. They come in handy when you need something in the moment and can’t get a gift delivered in time. Most of them are easy to purchase and require zero effort to spend. This season, I’ve purchased eGift cards from Nordstrom, Amazon, Bloomingdales, Macy’s, and Net-A-Porter.
