It’s Christmas Eve and you’ve left the Christmas shopping till…right…this…minute. Congrats. Whatever your reason (or lack of therefore), it’s still possible to come up with THE BEST GIFTS EVER – one that doesn’t involve men’s socks that are 5 sizes too big – with little to no time left to shop and the chance of working against sold out shelves. And yes, I totally feel like I am talking to men here.
Mason jar full of assortment nuts tied with ribbons.
iPod with their favorite music on it aka the new version of a burned CD.
The best bottle of Olive Oil you can find with luxurious chocolates (yes, you have to get both you last minute slacker).
Fine French Soap.
An assortment, like 15 different colors, of nail polish.
Their favorite perfume. Or 2. In the largest size you can find.
For your crafter, create a PS I Made This supply kit: fun tape, scissors, studs and spikes, hot glue gun, leather cord, you get the flow… And hey, they might just make something for you in return in 2014.
Anything in a little blue box. Absolutely, anything.
A recap of the year photo album – kind of like scrap booking – but as far back as you have to go is 11 months.
A handmade cookbook with some of their favorite recipes.
Airline tickets to somewhere warm in the coming year – one stop shop: kayak.com.
For your ebook readers, deliver a couple books right to their kindle and nooks.
The noblest gift would be the CharityChoice gift card to allow your loved one to make a loving donation to the charity of their choice.
A car with a big red bow. I mean, for real, that would be awesome. Or a Zipcar membership… whichever.
Any magazine subscription can happen with one click.
Sur La Table Cooking Classes – this really benefits both parties.
Tickets to sporting events that the other person likes! Like seriously, if you get me hockey tickets, I would be mad… but nothing beats socks.
Not a fish. Or hamster.
A mug that you handwritten a quote on with sharpie pens and then filled to the top with her favorite candies. The quote in this case is essential. Make it a mushy one. And yes “her” because this could probably only work on girls.
And remember: if all else fails, Starbucks Gift Card for the win
Black Friday? Psh. Try Terrible Tuesday.
