Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas + $500 Amazon GC Giveaway (Ended)

8:30 AM

Holidays are creeping up fast! If you haven't found the perfect gift yet, there aren't many options left. You'll either have to pay mucho $$$ for expedited shipping or you can save that money and give your friend one of these awesome last minute gift ideas. The top three on my list are below:

1. Gift Cards

Yes, this sounds lame, but they don't have to be. Don't go for the standard gift card - Visa Gift Card, Starbucks Gift Card, Macy's Gift Card, etc. Make it something unique that they might not have tried yet. One idea could be a gift card to go play laser tag, go-karting or skydiving. My favorite thing to do is to introduce my friends to new subscription boxes. I like to buy my friends a one-month sub to StitchFix. It's a unique experience having a stylist and some of them ended up loving the service that they kept ordering more!

2. Create a personalized subscription box

I'm obsessed with subscription boxes. I like the idea that you get a wide array of products to use and try. Re-create that for your friend. Whether you're purchasing for a guy or girl, cater the box to their needs. I actually did this for my best friend for her Christmas + Bday gift. I bought a lot of little items I knew she would love, gift wrapped all of them, labeled them with numbers and put hints to what each item was. When she was going through her present, she would read the clue, take a guess and open the gift. It was a cute experience for her and she really enjoyed it.

Keep in mind this does require some time to put together. If you really love your friend, go the extra step and write the little hints out! I bought all of the gifts off of Amazon. Since I have Prime membership, it arrives within 2 business days. If you don't have that, I recommend running to a Walmart or Target to grab your items.




3. Quick DIY Crafts

DIYs make great last minute gifts and they don't always take hours and hours to do. I've done crafts in 5-15 minutes that still look fabulous, plus it's extra special because it's made by you. My personal favorite is my 5 Minute Ring Holder DIY, but I have a lot of other DIYs that are just as quick and beautiful if she doesn't have a lot of jewelry:


Now, time for giveaway #6 of the 12 Days of Giveaways event. We're halfway through, hope you're enjoying all the giveaways so far!
