Now, let’s talk more last minute gift ideas for everyone on your list!

For Her

Cute nail accessories or polish and a gift card to get her nails done.

Bar accessories and her favorite bottle of wine. Or a gift card to Total Wine.

If she’s in to fashion then this clutch is ah-ma-zing.

More of the skincare line she uses, her favorite lotion or anything she could run out of during the year / maybe doesn’t want to spend on herself.

Find out where she gets her hair cut and pay for a session and give her a sample of hair products and some of the holy grain Oribe Texturizing Spray.

If she’s a mom gift her a pedicure, hair cut, shopping gift card and offer to keep the kids while she has an afternoon off.

Head to Marshalls and fill a cute basket with home trinkets. Like a wine opener, serving utensils and then a gift card to a cooking service if she hates to cook or William Sonoma if she loves to cook.

A new makeup bag or cosmetics case and a few samples from Sephora.

Recipe box filled with a favorite recipe or two and a new cookbook.

Fancy serving pieces, a new cheese board or wine glasses if she loves to entertain.

More of a china pattern she collects.

A Kindle with a gift card to buy some books.

Call a spa she frequents and get a gift card. Wrap it up with a candle, and some sample kits.

A gift certificate to a wine delivery service or makeup delivery service (a favorite of mine to give).

A cozy throw for her house or bedroom slippers.

A great tote bag for her to carry around things day to day or for the pool.

Travel accessories like this great organizer or this jewelry case.

A new planner, notebooks or journal.


For Him

Patagonia vest or jacket is always a safe bet.

Anything from Beau Outfitters or the J.Crew gift section.

Bose Speaker or a charging crate.

Amazon or eBay gift card. My dad LOVES to bid on stuff on eBay so I always get him this.

A new money clip.

Anything to support this hobby like golf balls, hand warmers or bullets if he hunts.

A new toiletry case with his favorite cologne.

A new grooming kit, subscription for blades or a gift card to a men’s salon.

His drink of choice with ice molds.

Some new sunnies.

A new piece of luggage or overnight bag.

Pocket squares or socks.


For Kids

A new DVD they haven’t seen with popcorn and pjs or a gift card to go see a movie with candy.

Bubbles, sidewalk chalk, cards, mini slimes from Target or putty. Really anything from the Target Dollar Spot will do.

If they are little Melissa & Dog water wow or color wonder kits.

Brain Flakes or Magformers! Kids of all ages love these!

Stuff for the spring like rain coats, cool umbrellas and Hunter boots.

Tool kit, shopvac, leaf blower or toy robot for little boys.

Mermaid tail, magic wand or robot Pony for little girls.

Little live pets are also a big hit with kids!


For Anyone

Echo dot with an amazon gift card.

Nice socks. Now don’t make this your only gift but don’t underestimate the power of some fresh socks for anyone in their 30’s. I would pair with a pedicure gift card or shoe shining or just as an added little thing.

Yeti or Corckcicle with a Starbucks gift card. Who doesn’t need more travel mugs?

6′ Phone Charger, extra charger & a gift card to Target or Best Buy for a new phone case.


For Grandparents

Chatbooks with pictures of the grandkids.

Your Christmas card photos framed with a sweet note.

Ornaments of the kids to hang on their tree.

A gift certificate to their favorite restaurant.

Stock their bar with their drink of choice and send them a new bar kit.

Pjs or cozy slippers.

These if they are constantly losing their keys.
