The Holidays come with plenty of warning. From the day after Thanksgiving (and even before) the promo emails turn festive, grocery store displays change, the lights go up, and the mood turns merry.
With this year especially, it’s no surprise that we get to one week before Christmas and realize we still need to do a lot of shopping – After all, we’re not outside as much to see the pretty lights, or to stroll around the shops with their beautiful displays.
So if you’re anything like us and still have some loose ends to tie up on your holiday shopping, don’t panic. We got you.
Just because you’re shopping for someone at the last minute, doesn’t mean you can’t show them a lifetime of sentiment and caring.
We’ve put together 5 beautiful last minute Christmas gifts that say “I care”, AND will get delivered by Christmas if you have Amazon Prime.
Read on to get your shopping list sorted, my fellow procrastinator:
5 Last Minute Christmas Gifts
1. The Stocking Stuffer:
NEST candles are the perfect stocking stuffer for your mother-in-law. Not only do these candles come in a gorgeous, end-table worthy glass jar, but they smell fantastic too.
With over 18 fragrances available, you’ll be sure to find something she loves. If you can’t decide, then go with the holiday scent, because there’s nothing better than the smell of cloves and orange during the holidays.
2. For your friend with little counter space...and the big coffee addiction
The compact Nespresso Vertuo Next is the perfect gift for your friend or sibling that makes coffee for one. The capsules are filled with delicious Nespresso coffee, and the machine is intuitive and easy to use.
Although it uses one-time use capsules, the Nespresso Vertuo was designed with sustainability in mind. The machine itself is made with over 50% recycled material, and they even have a return and recycle program for the capsules.
Give the gift of coffee, and you’ll find yourself over their house for a cup more often than not. On second thought, might as well just get one for yourself as well.
3. For the coolest kid in your life:
The imagiCharm is the kind of educational toy you wish was around when you were a kid. It’s a small attachable toy (think: keychain) that displays different light patterns. The charm connects to an app that teaches kids how to use simple code to display the image they want on the charm.
The in-app tutorials are interactive and fun, but also educational. Unlike other children's coding games that use their own language, the imagiCharm codes in one of the world’s most popular programming languages: Python.
This is a great STEM gift that will feel more fun and less like homework to whoever is lucky enough to receive it.
4. For the kitchen experimenter:
Is it a blender? Is it a food processor? Actually, it’s both. The Ninja SS201 Foodi is a powerful food processor that can crush ice, make doughs, AND chop veggies. It’s the perfect gift for your sister who’s been struggling with her small knock-off nutribullet for years. I see a food vlogger in your future!
5. For your true love who’s always late:
You love her even when she shows up an hour late, so get her this stunning watch to help her be on time (if she so chooses).
This beautiful Movado museum collection watch features a mother-of-pearl face and the timeless Movado design. She’ll smile every time she sees it, knowing that you thought of her.
This is truly a gift that stands the test of time, even if you only thought of it at the last minute.
Being in a time crunch isn’t an excuse to give a blah gift, especially not when we have 2-day delivery at our disposal.
With these thoughtful gifts they’ll never guess you got it just days before. Just remember to leave enough time for wrapping all those pretty things!
