OK, so I’m 97% done with shopping but there are always a few gifts I save until the last possible moment. Sometimes it’s due to funds, but more often than not these days it’s just due to good ol’ fashioned procrastination.
Since I’m guessing I’m not alone in this, I thought I would share my list of last minute gift ideas that can be appropriate for a variety of people on your list. Best part – these are all Prime eligible (at least as of writing this)!
So let’s get right to it then…

You can make some of these more personal by pairing them with something too. Pair the bottle opener with a 6 pack of craft beers! Pair the ladle with some dry soup mix or some cute kitchen towels. Pair the coffee table book or cheese knives with a bottle of wine (and some great cheese too, maybe!). It doesn’t take much to make any gift special and look expensive and thoughtful! 😉
Also, some bonus ideas that go beyond just a traditional Starbucks (or Tim Hortons for those here in Western NY, or our Canadian friends up north) or Amazon gift card (not that those aren’t great, of course!). If you are really cutting things close, these are some things you can buy right up until theverylastsecond: 😉
- Magazine subscriptions! Buy online and print out a little note (sometimes they come with a card you can print) and wrap that up!
- Subscription box services. There are so many great ones now – for women, men, kids, even pets! Some popular ones include Birchbox, Bluum, and PopSugar Must Have. Just Google “subscription boxes for [INSERT WHO YOU ARE SHOPPING FOR: women, men, kids, etc.].”
- There are also a lot of great “monthly clubs” if you really want to splurge. My husband loved when I got him a beer of the month subscription years ago. It’s amazing how many there are! Cheese, Chocolate, even Teddy Bears! (Although, for me, 12 months of teddy bears seems excessive). ha!
- StitchFix gift certificate! Or Trunk Club is a new one I just heard of, too. Both offer personal shopping services for both men and women. A gift certificate is a great way to let someone on your gift list try these services out!
Good luck with your last minute purchases, everyone! Only 4 more days ’til Christmas!! 🙂
