7 Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas

Hi everyone,

I wrote it in the title; this is indeed a last minute gift guide for fellow stragglers. The thing about Christmas is I don’t like to scurry and hunt for gifts under pressure. I like to accumulate gifts in advance that I know are solid choices, however, sometimes I revert to gifts like these that are always thoughtful! I hope you find them helpful.

Spa Packages

Spa packages are full-proof for someone to get a couple hours of pampering and relaxation. You can’t put a price on happiness, but you can put a packaged price on bliss. I got my mom a facial package at my aesthetician’s office for a facial and chemical peel. I trust my aesthetician so I didn’t go for the groupon route.

Tickets 

Concert venues, art exhibits, sports games, theatre shows.. the list goes on. Depending what the person enjoys, a ticket to a show that they might not normally splurge on themselves is always a nice gesture.

Tea/Coffee 

Tea set possibilities are endless. Cute tea cups, infusers, variety of tea flavors? Tea shops, like the Teavana one I have in the featured image, come with Belgian rock sugar, two types of teas in cute canisters, and an option to add an infuser. This will make someone feel a little more sophisticated and luxurious when they reach for their nightly tea.

Makeup/Skincare

This could be self-explanatory. A skincare kit all rose themed or fun makeup for New Years, Sephora would probably have it in the store.

Trinkets

I don’t know about you, but if someone got me a fox shaped car refresher to hang on my mirror I would be elated. Key chains with cute inspirational (or sassy) sayings and little trinkets are always a fun option. You could even resort to small trinkets for home decor. Game of thrones themed coasters, anyone?

Accessories

Plaid scarves for the holidays, colorful headphones for the gym (extra points for Bluetooth ones), there are a lot of ways that accessories can improve an individual’s daily life post Christmas.

Gifts that Give Back 

There are tons of companies now that donate money to a cause when you buy a product, so why not do it for a Christmas gift? If your friend or family member loves animals (or even a specific animal), you can buy them a token of their donation. You can make them feel happy on Christmas Day that their gift helped saved lives, or aided working towards a better future. There are so many charities to choose from, get creative!

I hope you found these last minute Christmas gift ideas helpful, and I hope you have a lovely holiday. xx

Hi beautiful people! I’m Kelly, a public health graduate hoping to inspire others about health and wellness. To be frank, health is long-term. It shouldn't go in and out of fashion. You cannot buy health in a package delivered to your doorstep- you have to work for it! Join me as I post about health research, skincare, the benefits of a quality diet, and exercise. Animal posts as well as my love for coffee will most likely also be featured. xx
