Don’t worry if you’ve missed the boat on shopping. We’ve got you covered with these 15 last minute gift ideas, and yes, they’re actually things people will want!
We’ve just about made it to Christmas and I’ve gotta tell you: I’m pooped! This has been one of the craziest holiday shopping seasons in recent history! There have been sales upon sales upon sales. And then, when I thought there couldn’t be any more sales or coupons, well, there were more.
This is the home stretch though and if you’ve got shopping left to do at this point then you are most likely planning on heading out to the stores to do it in-person. Or, perhaps you’re going to buy online and pick up in-store, which is another great option! If you’re still committed to shopping online, however, here are 15 last minute gift ideas that can still be purchased and sent to your recipients without them ever having a clue that the gift *might* be a last minute purchase!
15 Last Minute Gift Ideas
Sending Kindle Books as a gift – you can even pre-schedule delivery so that they “arrive” on Christmas morning – couldn’t be easier or more thoughtful (assuming your recipient is a book lover). If you’re unsure what book to send, consider sending the recipient YOUR favorite book.
Another great option for your favorite book lover? A subscription to Kindle Unlimited, which costs $9.99 per month and includes access to more than 700,000 Kindle books!
Vouchers from Deal Sites
Sites like Rue La La, Gilt City, Groupon, and Living Social offer discount vouchers that can be redeemed at various stores. For instance, one of my absolute favorites that pops up on Gilt City from time to time is $25 for $50 at Vosges Haut-Chocolat. $50 worth of chocolate? Yes, please!
If time is short, check out these sites to see if they have any giftable vouchers available. I promise you that the recipient will love being able to go on a mini shopping spree!
Was there any doubt that subscription boxes would make this list?! There are so many box options available that you’re sure to find something for someone on your list and the best part is that nearly every box is available as a one-time thing, or in 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions.
Some of my recommendations include:
- PopSugar Must Have Box -for any woman
- Hammock Pack -for any woman needing a vacation
- MunchPak – for anyone wanting to try treats from around the world (check out my MunchPak review)
- Bark Box – for those with dog children
Personal Styling Services
For your favorite fashionista (or fashionisto… what’s the word for men?!) there are personal styling sites like Stitch Fix (check out our Stitch Fix review) or Le Tote (check out our Le Tote review) for women and Trunk Club, which now offers options for women and for men. A box from any of these sites will contain a selection of clothing items tailored to the recipient’s taste.
