Christmas is approaching quickly and you might still have quite a few people to purchase gifts for. Now is the time to shop for a last minute gift.
But sometimes it’s hard to figure out a gift for someone. So, I have you covered with a few last-minute gift ideas.
A Few Last Minute Gift Ideas
Just so you know, some of the links in this post are my referral links. When you purchase something using the links I can make a little money at no extra cost to you. See my disclosure policy for more information.
Having an extra one or two can be really helpful. I like to purchase magic gloves. They are small enough for kids hands but stretch big enough to fit an adult. I know I usually can find them at around a dollar a pair.
A consumable gift can be a real blessing. It doesn’t contribute to clutter in the home and most people have something consumable they like.
A consumable gift can be anything from a great specialty bottle of shampoo down to a sweet treat, like chocolates to eat. Lotions are also a great consumable gift to give since we all seem to need some during the winter months.
A homemade gift doesn’t have to be elaborate, it can be something practical and simple. If you can sew, making something like a pot holder or apron for someone who cooks is an easy and inexpensive homemade gift. If you bake or cook, bake some cookies or make some candy as a special gift.
For a person who cooks maybe a new set of bakeware or set of cute cookie cutters. Try to think of a gift that you know they will use but won’t necessarily purchase for themselves.
For someone who loves tea or hot chocolate, you can purchase a couple different specialty Teas or Cocoas. Add in a cute mug and some chocolate dipped spoons or a nice jar of honey and you have a great gift.
For kids, it might be great to get them a bunch of little gifts, like novelty items and wrap them individually and place them in a big bag or box.
My kids love things like touchable bubbles, Stickers, little craft kits or science kits. Also, purchasing games that everyone in the family can play would be a great last-minute gift. My kids love to play games and often ask for a new one at Christmas. Games are often on sale this time of year.
