Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas

This year, I wrapped up all of my holiday shopping a week ahead of time, but usually, I’m one of those crazy people hitting the mall on Christmas Eve. My schedule (and a little bit of procrastination, lol) made it hard before, and during those times, I had to think fast so that I wasn’t caught out all day long (or fighting with someone about a scarf. Seriously, NO deal is that good!).

Thankfully, you have the weekend to finish up all of your holiday shopping, so if you’re unsure of what to get, here’s a roundup of tried and true “last minute” gifts anyone would love to receive. My biggest tip for whatever you do is to go to stores that you know like the back of your hand. Have a realistic budget and a list, and go as early as possible to beat the crowds and to also shop safely.

If you’re shopping from your desk, many of these stores are still offering delivery by Christmas Eve; Target is even doing online order with in-store pickup. If not, you can pop into any of these stores; many will have extended hours so you can either go in earlier than usual or after your work day is done. If all else fails, grab them a gift card and a sweet note!

Have a happy holiday! xo
