Who else is a last minute gifter? I am *raises hand guiltily*. Sometimes I just know what I want to get someone for Christmas, and those are usually the first few presents I get at the beginning of December. I then stop, under the ruse of "I'll think about what else to get" and suddenly it's three days 'til Christmas. Eep! I've put together here some last minute gifting ideas that should be suited to *most people*. Of course everyone has different tastes and habits, but here is a collection of gifting ideas that are easy to get a hold of, and are sure to please most recipients! Hopefully this gives you some ideas and inspiration.
Tea / Coffee Related Gifts
A lot of tea and coffee shops come out with fantastic gift sets for the holidays. For tea, I love to check out DavidsTea and Teavana for gift ideas, and even bookstores have some cute tea sets. Plus there are so many tea-related accessories! And if you want to buy a gift for a coffee lover, some coffee beans is always a good idea, paired with some accessories such as coffee mugs or travel mugs.
Gifting a candle seems so delightfully simple, but you want to be sure it's a scent they will like. I know some people who like the sweet bakery-type smells, and some people who abhor them. But if there's one scent that will please all, it's the balsam/fir scent. It's sophisticated, unisex, warm and festive, yet carries well past Christmas.
There are some really nice candles sold at Indigo or Chapters, so be sure to check out a bookstore for nice candles. Of course there is also Bath and Body Works, and if you're feeling spendy, there are lovely candles from Nest, Jo Malone (swoon), or Diptyque (oooh).
A nice bottle of wine or prosecco. Who wouldn't like that? The wonderful thing about this sort of gift is that it's something most adults can appreciate and enjoy - whether that be your boss, coworker, friend, Dad, in-laws, and more. The other wonderful thing about this is that there are so many options to suit different people and different budgets. Knock yourself out. (Just kidding. Drink responsibly please!)
Bath & Body Care
I suppose this is meant more for the ladies, but I had to include it since there are so many good gifting options. Everyone deserves some pampering! The obvious place to get bath time treats is Lush. They have so many holiday gift set options, but you can put together your own little gift set with the soaps, bath melts, bath bombs, and so on. There are so many other places to get bath and body care items: L'Occitane, The Body Shop, Sephora, Kiehls, and so much more.
